    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    I’ve got another Panasonic phone I’m happy with, but I got this one for the Link-to-Cell technology. Not only am I very happy with this phone, but I’ve registered my old handsets and range extender to this base. If this is something you’re considering keep reading to find out about the quirks involved. First, this phone.

    Handset battery life is excellent. I’ve had a handset off the base and in use for three days, and it’s got two out of three bars left. Sound quality is excellent. Whether I’ve got a handset propped on my shoulder or I’m using speakerphone, the other party is nice and clear. Range is fantastic. I got all the way out to my mailbox (and that’s quite a long distance,) and the person on the line didn’t realize I’d walked away from the base. No other phone I’ve had, including another Panasonic Dect 6.0 Plus phone, could do that.

    Call Block is better than sliced bread. I’m on the Do Not Call list, but you’d never know it. When I get a call from someone who thinks I really need a timeshare, I save the number to the call block list. The next time they call the phone will ring, less than half a ring, then the caller goes to a busy signal. Lately I can actually get through dinner without the phone ringing.

    Linking to a Bluetooth cell phone was fairly easy. The instructions are pretty clear, and (unlike the Bluetooth headset I use while driving) registering and connecting the phone and cell phone was a smooth process. You can use the phone handset to place a cell phone call or answer incoming cell calls, if the cell phone is near the base, or you can come home in the middle of a cell call and connect to the base, and switch to a phone handset. So far the procedure for doing that was slightly more complicated than telling your caller “Hey, I’m home, I’ll call you back,” but it does work smoothly. Sound quality on cell calls is excellent–better than my cell phone.

    You can link to two different cell phones. You can also copy your cell phone’s contacts to this phone’s contact list. I haven’t figured that out yet. And if you have no landline, you can configure the phone to only use the cell link.

    The answering system works. Not much to say about that. It’s easily controlled from the handset.

    The 100 page manual is densely packed with information. The instructions are pretty clear, and give quick shortcuts like “Press MENU #632″ instead of making you scroll through menus until you find the entry you need. The index actually has everything I’ve looked up so far. They’ve put some effort into making the manual useful as something more than a coaster.

    So far I have absolutely no complaints with this phone. (I’m kind of disappointed, actually–I love to complain!) If I run into problems I’ll update, but so far, five stars.

    IF YOU HAVE ANOTHER PANASONIC DECT 6.0 *PLUS* (see below) PHONE and you’d like to use those handsets with this base, you can do that. I had no problems following the instructions to register the handsets and a range extender to this base. (I tested the range before connecting the range extender.) I only have two problems: the other handsets do not have link-to-cell capability, so if I want to use the phone for a cell call I have to find one of the handsets that came with this phone. And Panasonic makes different phones with slightly different form factors, so while all the handsets look alike at a glance, the old phones don’t fit in the new charging base.

    UPDATE: From the comments on this review, it looks like you must have another Panasonic DECT 6.0 *PLUS* phone to use those handsets with this phone. I can’t find anything in the manual about this, but it makes sense. Check your Panasonic phone if you want to register those handsets with this phone. Thank you, s0low.

    The last Panasonic phone I purchased lasted me 7 years, and the only reason I replaced it was the desire for the new technology. This phone hasn’t let me down at all. The DECT 6.0 Plus technology = crystal clear communication. The features on the phone are very comprehensive, and the link to cell is a must have for mobile users. I highly recommend this phone system.
