It&amp;#39;s a Cordless Answering System with Caller ID/Call Waiting.&lt;/div&gt; &lt;div rgb=&quot;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt; &lt;div rgb=&quot;&quot;&gt;&lt;strong&gt;&lt;u&gt;Look at all of these awesome features!&lt;/u&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/div&gt; &lt;div rgb=&quot;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt; &lt;div rgb=&quot;&quot;&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;Expandable up to 5 handsets with only one phone jack&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;DECT 6.0 Digital technology&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Voicemail Waiting Indicator&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Remote access&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Message retrieval from handset&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Mute&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;50 name and number phonebook directory&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Any key answer&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Volume control&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Call intercept&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Call screening&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Message time and date stamp&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Single Line 14 Minute Record Time&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Trilingual prompts&amp;mdash;choose between English, Spanish or French&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Wall-mount bracket included&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Last 10 number redial&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;/div&gt; &lt;div class=&quot;footnote_content&quot; rgb=&quot;&quot;&gt;&lt;strong&gt;**Use of Caller ID feature requires a subscription from your telephone service provider.&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/div&gt; &lt;center rgb=&quot;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/center&gt; &lt;center rgb=&quot;&quot;&gt; &lt;div both=&quot;&quot; class=&quot;separator&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-BDvjs99DpuY/Und6UHq77_I/AAAAAAAApi0/qRZZxPvsx9Y/s1600/100_9436.JPG&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;http://cdn-media.vtechphones.com/in-the-news/logos/2013/Nov/vtech-cordless-phone-and-answering-machine-review/cup1.jpg&quot; style=&quot;border-width: 0px; border-style: solid; width: 246px; height: 320px;&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt; &lt;div both=&quot;&quot; class=&quot;separator&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt; &lt;div both=&quot;&quot; class=&quot;separator&quot;&gt;It&amp;#39;s&amp;nbsp;a really neat phone and answering machine and Mike was in heaven playing around with it. This is his area of expertise and I let him set up the whole operation. I get rattled sometimes when all that programming stuff but he&amp;#39;s&amp;nbsp;a whiz with it all.&lt;/div&gt; &lt;div both=&quot;&quot; class=&quot;separator&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt; &lt;div both=&quot;&quot; class=&quot;separator&quot;&gt;We toyed with putting it on the wall so that it&amp;#39;s out of the way and not taking up space on a table or counter, but then decided we didn&amp;#39;t want any additional holes in the wall, so for now, it&amp;#39;s in Mike&amp;#39;s office on the computer desk, well away&amp;nbsp;from listening ears if someone happened to be home.&lt;/div&gt; &lt;div both=&quot;&quot; class=&quot;separator&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt; &lt;div both=&quot;&quot; class=&quot;separator&quot;&gt;I can tell you that the feature I really like is that 50 names and numbers that it can store for me! It gets so hard sometimes to remember every single person&amp;#39;s number and with this new phone, my most frequently called numbers will know be much easier to use!&amp;nbsp; Another great aspect is that it can store up to 50 Call Waiting ID&amp;#39;s, something that our other phone could not do. I like that I can scroll down and see who called but didn&amp;#39;t leave a message.&lt;/div&gt; &lt;div both=&quot;&quot; class=&quot;separator&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt; &lt;div both=&quot;&quot; class=&quot;separator&quot;&gt;Most of all, though, is the Speakerphone feature that I really appreciate the most. Because of the RA&amp;nbsp;&amp;amp; Fibromyalgia, I can&amp;#39;t hold onto a phone for long periods of time so I use the Speakerphone for all of my&amp;nbsp;calls. It has made it so much easier to not to have to hold the phone up to my ear for long periods of time. My hands get very weak and sore when I do that, so a Speakerphone is a must in my life!&lt;/div&gt; &lt;div both=&quot;&quot; class=&quot;separator&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt; &lt;div both=&quot;&quot; class=&quot;separator&quot;&gt;&lt;strong&gt;&lt;span rgb=&quot;&quot;&gt;VTech phones can be purchase at your nearest WalMart store!&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/div&gt; &lt;div both=&quot;&quot; class=&quot;separator&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt; &lt;div both=&quot;&quot; class=&quot;separator&quot;&gt;&lt;strong&gt;&lt;u&gt;Why should you buy from VTech?:&lt;/u&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/div&gt; &lt;div left=&quot;&quot;&gt; &lt;blockquote 1.3em=&quot;&quot;&gt;As a conscientious shopper, you scrutinize countless brands before buying a new dishwasher, washing machine or TV. You care about your family, and want to ensure they have the best-equipped household possible, so you don&amp;rsquo;t mind doing some comparisons. It&amp;rsquo;s no surprise then, that when it comes to purchasing the communication epicenter of your home, you won&amp;rsquo;t settle for anything but the best phone system.&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/blockquote&gt; &lt;blockquote 1.3em=&quot;&quot;&gt;As the world&amp;rsquo;s largest manufacturer of cordless telephones, VTech understands.
