VTech Cordless Answering System Review

August 22, 2013

***Complimentary product received in exchange for an honest review***

I am one of those oddball people who still prefers my land-line phone over my cell phone. Being a stay-at-home, work-at-home mom, I find it easier to reach for my phone on my desk then  have to dig through my bottomless handbag to search for my cell phone, which is normally dead anyway.  Ever since home phones went cordless, I have always used VTech Phones. The CS6829 is the newest in a long line of dependable products offered by VTech. Check out all these awesome features:

Caller ID/Call Waiting*—stores 50 calls 
Know who's calling with Caller ID/Call Waiting. Handset displays the name, number, time and date of incoming calls.

Handset speakerphone 
With the touch of a button, the handset speakerphones makes hands-free conversations easy.  

Backlit keypad and display 
The entire keypad illuminates along with the LCD screen, allowing for easier viewing in dim light.

 ECO mode power-conserving technology 
Power-conserving technology manages consumption for optimal battery performance.

 Quiet Mode 
Silence the ringer on the handset and base unit immediately, or for an extended period of time.

 Expandable up to 5 handsets with only one phone jack 
Expandable up to 5 handsets with only one phone jack—accessory handsets (sold separately). Additional handsets can be placed anywhere in your home or office near an outlet, no phone jack necessary. Convenient, flexible and easy to use.

I was lucky enough  to receive one of these snazzy phones to review. First, I love the black and silver colors.  It looks great in my office. The handset is very light weight, and the numbers of the keyboard and screen are both large and clear to read.  The back-lit display makes it easy to see even in the dark. I learned almost  immediately that the battery has a long life even when it gets left on the charger--this is a bad habit my tween daughter has so its an important feature for me.  The volume can be adjusted to the perfect level for each individual's preference.  Another feature I love is the ability to turn off the ringer. When the babies are sleeping or I'm working on my novels I don't like to be interrupted by a ringing phone.

The answering system has lots of great benefits too.  It stores up to fifty messages and you can replay them as many times as you need to. It also has a built it caller ID system so the name, number and time off the call are all listed on the handset. If you miss someone important, you will be able to go through missed calls and return them with just the click on a button. If you still use a land-line,  the VTech CS6829 Cordless Answering System is a wonderful, affordable option.  You can get yours on the VTech website or online at Walmartfor only $24.98.
