Great idea, lots of issues though

By Mark from Michigan on 10/21/2010


Pros:

Compact, Durable, Convenient, Links Cell Phone To Home Phone, Inexpensive

Cons:

Difficult To Use, Potential Compatibility Issues, Did Not Meet Expectations

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love Panasonic products, have owned their corded and wireless phones for 25 years, but this model has issues. Perhaps it is the Bluetooth in my i880 that is the issue but that works with other headsets just fine. My issues: (1) Phone periodically rings, shows caller ID, once you answer the line is dead. Turns out the "call" is from the connected cell phone and the caller ID is from the last call the cell phone received. There is no real call. (2) Once the cell phone links to the base, more often than not I cannot dial out using the cell phone connection. You either get continuous beeps with no connection, or an implied connection with no sound. Then your friends and family call you back and tell you they could not hear you. (3) About 25% of the time an incoming call from the cell phone, linked to this phone, when answered using either the cell phone or this phone there is no sound and the caller cannot hear me either. (4) Callers report frequent voice break up. (5) When talking on speaker phone using a handset you have to literally yell for 5 - 10 seconds before the other person can hear you if they are talking. Good news for them is you can't easily interrup them. Bad news for you is you can't interrupt them when you need to. I did not have this issue with my prior Panasonic cordless spearker phones. (6) Incoming cell phone calls only result in 2 rings before the call goes to the cell phone voice mail. That means the first 2 rings are not transmitted when the bluetooth link is active. Again, maybe most of this is my i880, maybe I just have one of the early units (I do, have had this since the end of July) and there are some bugs that were resolved with later models. All I know is if I kill power to the phone base and then power it back on things seem to work again, for an hour or so. Most often I now need to drop the bluetooth link to the base if I want to call out using the cell phone. I have no issues with the cell phone bluetooth when used in my car which has built in bluetooth. I therefore have to point to this phone as the culprit. Perhaps someone at Panasonic can offer up a cause and/or solution to all these issues?

Works great

By Tony from San Diego, CA on 09/18/2010


Pros:

Bluetooth, Headphone Jack, Convenient, Exceeded Expectations

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this for two reasons (1) the Bluetooth connection to a ceel or head set, (2) IT HAS A HEADPHONE JACK! Can't believe how few of these phones have a headphone jack and this does. I use a headphone, it's much better for your neck and ear and this is terrific. Buy it...

great phone, one small problem

By stockguy from 23230 on 08/13/2010


Pros:

Easy To Use, Inexpensive, Convenient, Durable, Compact, Exceeded Expectations

Cons:

Can't Screen Cell Calls

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The only issue I had with this phone is that it would allow you to screen voice messages only if the call came in on the landline. Would have been nice to have the option to screen voice messages that come in from cell phones too. Other than that issue, it's a great phone.

Excellent phone system with caveat...

By Steven from Virginia on 08/12/2010


Pros:

Dect 6 Plus Gives Greater Range, Copy Numbers From Cell To Handset, Durable, Convenient, Easy To Use, Compact

Cons:

No Dialtone When Dialing Through Cell Phone, No Access To Cell Phone's Voicedial, Did Not Meet Expectations

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've always liked Panasonic phones for their quality and features and I always recommend them to my friends. However, while I like this phone system very much, I hesitate to recommend it soley on its Bluetooth features. That is, while I bought this phone system for its Bluetooth capabilty, I ended feeling that the only Bluetooth feature I could really use was the ability to copy phone numbers from my cell phone to the Panasonic base/handsets. After that, I ended up defaulting to my Gigaset bluetooth device to continue to handle Bluetooth/Cell features. The first reason i did this is because the Gigaset still gives me that old fashioned dial tone when i press the Talk button on the Panasonic handset, even though it's making the call through my cell phone. (I don't have a landline by the way) Not having that dial tone confuses friends who want to make calls using a Panasonic handset at my house. They thought the phone line was dead cause there was no dial tone after pressing the Talk button. 2nd, The Panasonic handsets do not allow access to the voice dial feature on my cell phone. The Gigaset allows me to access the Voice Dial feature on my cell phone by pressing the # key twice on the handset. I can't tell you how handy this is. I hardly ever dial numbers anymore. The combination of this Panasonic bluetooth system (though somewhat limited on the Bluetooth end) and the Gigaset Bluetooth features makes for an unbeatable phone system at home - HANDS DOWN! Panasonic was smart to keep the "headset" jack on each of the handsets. Other phone makers made a mistake in eliminating that jack from each handset. I guess the other phone makers assumed that a Bluetooth ear piece would be used solely for "hands free" talking via connection to the Bluetooth phone base. I found that to be a bad assumption as, very often, I take calls or walk around in the yard way out of the 15-30 foot range of Bluetooth devices. Because Panasonic kept the headset jack on their handsets, I can continue to get the "hands free" convenience without worrying about stepping out of the limited range of Bluetooth. The Dect 6 plus allows a far greater walking range. Keep up the good work Panasonic but also... please incorporate the other features i mentioned above into your future Bluetooth phone systems. Thanks...

Fantastic Cordless Phone

By Willard from DFW Metroplex on 07/13/2010


Pros:

Exceeded Expectations, Convenient, Inexpensive

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My wife and I live in a rural area where cell service is very spotty in the house. With this new system we put our cell phones in proximity to the base unit in a spot where we get a decent cell signal. We can then make and receive calls on either of our cell phone using the cordless phone and, of course, it handles our landline as well. We use our cell phone for all long-distance calls because it's free. Super Cordless Phone, well thought out...good job Panasonic! As soon as the single additional phones are available, I'm going to buy 3 more.
