This is cool if you still use phones and not your cell for home coverage. This VTech phone operates over 5.8GHz which is a wi-fi friendly range and should provide a better talking distance and clarity when on the phone. Sure, there are a bunch of phones that support 5.8GHz, but do they have pretty little high resolution screens allowing you to feature 29 images and animations to be used as wallpaper or picture callerID? You can also expand the system with up to seven additional handsets.
The 5.8GHz digital phone offers the latest in cordless technology with the highest level of voice clarity, heightened security and enhanced range. Traveling on a less trafficked frequency band than 2.4GHz and 900MHz phones, Wi-Fi-friendly 5.8GHz phones have a stronger, clearer signal.
The high resolution color screen features 29 images and animations to be used as wallpaper or picture caller ID, or use the included software and USB cord to download your own images. The phonebook directory stores up to 100 names and numbers.
Tapeless operation ensures reliable performance, instant access to messages and the ability to selectively save and delete messages. Caller ID in both the handset and the base. Plug in a headset or use the speakerphone in the handset or the base for handsfree conversations.
You can expand the base unit’s capacity with up to seven additional accessory handsets â€” additional handsets (VN928) can be placed anywhere in your home or office where you have an electrical outlet and do not require a phone jack.
Includes AC adapter and belt clip. The handset measures 10″ x 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ and weighs 1 1/4 lbs. The base unit is 9 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ x 1″ and weighs 2 lbs. One-year warranty.
