My favorite features:

  • It’s thin! This phone is smaller than my cable remote and really thin (check out the picture above).
  • It can store 50 names/numbers in the phone book. I love being able to see who is calling so I can decide if I want to pick it up or not.
  • The phone has an Energy Star label so I know that it is an energy efficient phone.
  • I can talk on the phone without having to worry that I will hear interference on the line.
  • There is a quiet mode so if I want to turn the ringer off it’s easy to do.
  • The Digital Answering System is a nice feature and I love how high-tech this phone is.
