I bought this phone system for my home-based office, where I need a 2-line phone, which combines a corded base and cordless handsets.
I find it easy to use the various features and I like the look and feel of the whole system.
As noted by a previous reviewer, it was hard to get the base standby batteries ( 5 AAA ) to make contact to remove the " Replace Battery " message from the screen. However, I was able to do so after prying the battery metal contact prongs with a paper clip.
The standard 2 year manufacturer's warranty ( printed on the RCA website ) is a recent revision to the 1 year warranty printed in the owner's manual.
I'm very pleased and I hope my satisfaction continues.

This is a very nice phone with great features. I wanted the long record time (60 minutes!). BUT, there's an issue with compatibility with the expansion phones. The phone I have is model number 25255RE2-A. The "-A" is important! As it turns out, only handsets with the model number ending in "-A" work cleanly. Handset 25055RE1-A works great, great sound quality, no static. BUT, 25055RE1 without the -A is awful! Lots of dropouts from the remote side, so bad that I could barely make them out. Attempting to get an extension that worked, I ended up trying THREE of these without the "-A" and all sound terrible! All my phones WITH the "-A" work fine. Note there are also differences in the D-Pad functions between these two model numbers. WITH the -A, when the phone is idle, if I push the D-Pad down (down volume), it immediately rings the phone and allows you to set the ringer volume. Without the -A, it goes to a menu choice to let you choose this function (which I prefer). They also have different functionality for font selection when entering names in the directory, etc. BUT, worse of all, WITHOUT the -A, the directory functions don't work at all with the base unit! Trying to upload the directory, you get "unavailable". Trying to download the directory to the handset, you get the same thing. So an important piece of functionality is also missing.
I've tried 3 Staples locally to replace the handset and non have another -A, so it looks like I'm going to have to give up on this phone and get another model. Sadly, few have long record time, so I'll lose this feature. I went to RCA's website to see about getting assistance, and I found they don't even list this phone there, so its also already discontinued apparently. As such, I worry about getting handsets replaced or getting new ones, as I'd have to get the -A model. That brings up the last big issue, both versions have the EXACT SAME SKU so there's not much of a way to know before hand what you'd get. Sorry RCA, but that is a major blunder. And, it does explain why many report great sound quality, while other report terrible sound quality, it apparently depends on the revision of the base and handset you have...and to make them the same SKU, really bad.

Comments about RCA 25255RE2 DECT 6.0 2-Line Corded/Cordless Telephone with Digital Answering System:

WE ARE VERY SATISFIED WITH OUR PURCHASE FOR OUR BUSINESS. WE OFTEN USE TWO LINES AND IT HAS WORKED SINCE WE SET IT UP. IT WAS EASY TO SET UP AND GET IT WORKING. THE PORTABLE PHONE THAT WAS PART OF THE PURCHASE HAS ALSO WORKED WELL. IT HAS TAKEN A LITTLE TIME TO GET USED TO THE PORTABLE HAVING TWO LINES ON IT AS WE HAVEN'T HAD A TWO LINE PORTABLE BEFORE. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE OR BUSINESS IF YOU NEED MORE THAN ONE LINE

RCA 2 LINE CORDED CORDLESS

Comments about RCA 25255RE2 DECT 6.0 2-Line Corded/Cordless Telephone with Digital Answering System:

This product was easy to install and it was esthetically pleasing to have on my desk. I found that the various menus were comprehensive and as such getting a clear interpretation was some what challenging. For example some of the choices that needed to be made were not fully explained. I am sure some people will find that this is not an issue. I have a set of three phones in my office they communicate well with each other. The learning curve for the three of us to use the phones was about average. The only problem I had was that I was not able to get the intercom feature to work. I think this was because I would rather not use the Bluetooth option, EMF proliferation issues. Still debating on this. Overall very pleased and would recommend this item.
