    Customer review by joradio

    I Have this system for about 1 month. Everthing went together without a hitch. I do have one complaint, however the answering machine is very close to the telephone and if you pick up the phone handle after the answering machine is activated IE you recognize the caller and want to talk with (him-Her) you set up a feedback loop that causes a squeal that will blow you away. I solved the problem by lowering the output from th answering machine below the feedback level and that fixed the problem. My previous answering machine muted the speaker when the phone was picked up. I would however recomend this unit to friend or foe because after you figure out the feedback problem it is a very good deal. Joradio.

    We bought this for our mom on mother's day because we have one and this one is more updated . We own one its several yrs old and it is very reliable and is great if you can't answer the phone so you never miss a call. I also like it because telemarketers will never leave a message and they will just hang up. This one is easier to use and she is very happy with it already.

    Customer review by dinjaski

    This device is a great value, compact and lightweight, easy to learn to use (even for technophobes like me) and works as advertised. I had it shipped to store to save a little money and it arrived in a jiffy. One aspect I find especially useful is the ability to access your messages remotely! The directions state that you can do this from a touch tone phone. However, I was delighted to discover that it also works with various touch tone technology, such as a cell phone and Skype. I am getting one for a friend. How many products meet -- much less, exceed -- expectations? Yippee! This one definitely is a rare commodity and I simply cannot recommend it highly enough. Good job, AT&T!

    • A. I had purchased a total of three of this AT@T landline answering machine, two for myself and one given as a gift, and this model is found to have day of week setting. I agree and would like more specific details on the actual date. All three purchased specify only Monday thru Sunday, along with the time, but not the date. This answer is according to my experience.

    • A. I don't know as I never got to use it. However, I had a previous AT & T unit and it gave you the date, day & time. This unit is no longer around that I could find and it was black not white. Call At & T directly and they will give you all the information that you need as they are very helpful with a "live" person to speak to.

    Just wondering if the included greeting voice is robotic or pleasantly human? We have a GE unit now and the woman's voice gets an A++. It is real, soft-spoken, polite and brief. Just perfect! I'm sure, if need be, I can play the old unit's greeting right into the mic on this one.

    • A. Never used a factory installed greeting. It is best to make your own greeting in your own voice. Why use theirs?

    • A. This is a subjective question. I find the 1740's greeting voice a nice blend of robotic and human voice.

    • A. to me the pre recorded voice sounds OK. you do know you can record your own custom message, any time you want to. yes this ATT unit will pick up, to record your greeting from you old GE machine, the GE should have enough volume to allow you to record a clear greeting on to the ATT Machine. you will need enough volume, but don't get carried away or you can distort the recording on the greeting. you do have some good head room, however.
