This phone system replaces an older version made by VTech which saw better days.

Every VTech phone system I have purchased has not given me one problem, so I would say the brand is extremely reliable.

Also, having an ergonomic-style handset, the phone system doesn't slip out of my hand easily.

I also like the fact that I can program the voice mail for remote listening. I'll never miss a message!

Overall, the price versus quality is balanced and if I have to purchase another product like this for my other office, then I'll be sure to pick a VTech phone system!

Ghastly ghastly

This phone is the two handset package, and is also available with three or four handsets. It is a DECT-6 phone operating on 1.9GHz, so it will not interact with WiFi networks.

It looks sleek, relatively slim black/silver, good first impression.

It also boasts all the featues you are ever likely to need - selectable ringtones (very limited selections), voicemail, remote access to voiemail, intercom... I could go on but I'd get bored and you can see the full list in the product description. Suffice it to say that on paper it's a full-featured domestic cordless phoe.

Setup was easy - plug in battery pack (I prefer individual batteries but almost no cordless phones use them), charge, and connect the base to the telephone network. If you've ever set up a phone before it's much the same.

First call I misdialed. The beeps are feeble and somewhat delayed - so when you press a digit nothing happens and just as you're about to press the next digit it gives a feeble beep as if the battery only just has enough power to make the beep work. This is off-putting. Fast dialing requires you to deliberately ignore the beeps and just press the buttons anyway (not too difficult with practice and determination). The alternative is to wait for each beep before pressing the next digit. It feels uncoomfortably slow but it works and you will get the number finished before your coffee gets cold. Honest.

The next problem is the display - the backlight is very dim and I find it almost impossible to read. It's much easier to read in bright light or with a flashlight.. or in complete darkness when the backlight is just enough. I searched the menus and could find nothing to adjust the display brightness or contrast.

Third problem is the sound quality. The sound is acceptable if it's loud enough, but behind the sound is a gritty hiss. Between sounds, the squelch circuit mutes the hiss but during speech (or other extraneous noises) this hiss is definitely noticeable. Strangely, the quieter the actual signal is, the louder the hiss (think small gravel in a cement mixer) becomes so if you have a weak connection, this hiss can almost drown the speech. In extreme cases, this becomes a virtually continuous hiss with the middle of each word popping up... sometimes but not always intelligible, but always really unpleasant to listen to.

I have voicemail with my phone company so i have not tested that feature. But however good it is, this phone has enough problems that I can't recommend it.

Quirky but cheapest

Comments about Vtech CS6729-2 2 Handset Cordless Telephone with Answering System/Caller ID/Call Waiting:

My only beef with this phone is that the action when pressing the numbers is very slow -- it's impossible to dial a number quickly. Also, caller ID does not always work -- the number doesn't appear when the call comes in and only appears when reviewing missed calls.

However, there is a nice variety of ringtones and the other functions are straightforward. I am still learning all the functions and some are not explained in the directions pamphlet. I wish there was an undo button for deleting a message by mistake (as I did on first use -- I had thought you could delete a message right after it ended and instead deleted the next one in the cue).

A good deal for the price, overall.

Cordless phone

Comments about Vtech CS6729-2 2 Handset Cordless Telephone with Answering System/Caller ID/Call Waiting:

My old answering machine stopped working and needed a new one. Staples had a variety to choose from. I wanted one that was easy to use (plug and play), this unit did exactly that. Using the instructions to install and to change options was very easy.
