Easy to program, view and use. The bluetooth feature integrates well with the cell phones. No matter where the cell phone is in the house as long as it is turned on you get the call. The battery back-up feature for the base unit is a big improvement. This system was a replacement for a Panasonic system I purchased about five years ago. A major step forward for a land line user.
Several years ago I had a 2.4 wireless phone system for my voip phone service. It worked great. We then moved into a 5,000 ft / 3 story home and I was only able to get phone service to the back half of the house -- not my bedroom, not my living room and not my kitchen. Soon after I bought a 6.0 panasonic phone and the range did not change. Yesterday I bought this phone and an extender (extender was not compatible with old phone)and I was able to get a dial tone on the front sidewalk. I also can lay my blue tooth phone next to the base and my cell phone call rings on all handsets. Some features I did not know are cool like the caller ID talks, the phone book has 3,000 plus entry possibility, (old one had 50) and you can block calls.
As I said, I have my life back and this item was priceless.
Intercom feature works well. When used with the range extender I got nearly 350' of signal from the set (Mostly outdoors). Cell phone link works well, however, since texting doesn't follow to the cordless handset it becomes troublesome if your cell leaves the range of the base unit. Overall, great cordless set.
We use this with link-to-cell feature only no landline. Were using an older LG 290 series (cheesy) cell with it from Straight Talk.
Most features work with the older phone except for the cell phone ringers won't go through to the home phone no biggy though. Sometimes the caller ID will just show which cell the call is comming from, for example, "Dave's Phone" (my cell# will appear instead of name and number. Thats the phone the call is comming from. That number will still be on the caller ID when you check it after the call so you can label it in the KX phone from there to defeat it. There might be another way but I haven't found it yet.
Bluetooth registering and connecting via bluetooth is easy. Setup from there is a little cumbersome but there are 5 handsets and a base to set up so thats expected. Not to difficult just alot of reading and fiddling to figure out.
Answering machine on the KX is for landline only although you can still dial out to your voice mail on cell from there.
I imagine gadget #smart# phones will have no issues at all with this product.
Great Range, clear sound, easy to read, connecting bluetooth is simple, contacts list transfer is simple as well.
The power backup is for landline use ONLY.
The KX-xxxx phones will not search for a device, the device #cell# must search for it in order to connect.
If no landline feature is needed then turn off that feature and set to cell only. Also I recommend a lower priced one without that feature if its not needed.
Great thing to have around. Phones all over the place now with no need to babysit a cell phone at all.
I did alot of research before finally deciding on the Panasonic system and I have not been disappointed. The phone sounds great and the bluetooth option works like a charm with mine and my wifes cell phones.
This phone came with 5 handsets, great for a family of 4. With the built in intercom system, we no longer have to yell at each other. I just simply call one of the extensions and talk to one individual. When I'm ready to wake the kids up for school I dial that particular handset and talk to that one person and not the entire house. Simple, simple to use and getting started was easy. I hardly needed to look at the manual to get started. My entire family thinks the phone is the greatest.
The system is easy to use, comfortable and stylish. My only critique would be the phone directory, It will store thousands of names and numbers, but it doesn't have a way to zero in on the number you are looking for, i.e. if the name starts with an L you can click on the 5 which takes you to JKL, so if you have a lot of J's and K's you can spend alot of time scrolling.
I had an older Panasonic 4 handset cordless phone that I had for 4 years that still worked good but had a smaller and dimmer LCD screen. This made it hard to read my phone book entires and to read the caller ID when a call came in. Also, I was not able to have a handset in the same room with my pc and moniter because it would make the screen on my monitor turn black. My sister had this phone for over a year and continually raved about it, so I decided to retire my 4 year old Panasonic phone and buy this one. I'm glad I did. The screen is bright, my phone book entries are large and easy to read, the clarity of my calls are outstanding, and I've even been able to put a handset right next to my monitor without it causing any interference to the monitor or to the phone at all. I can't comment on the cell to link feature because neither my sister nor I use that feature.
This product has good reception, but the bluetooth interferes with other bluetooth compatible devices (such as your car). If you have other devices I would recommend that you not have the Panasonic automatically connect to your cell because it disconnects you from other bluetooth devices. This way you can choose when to use your cell with the Panasonic. :)
I love the way you can answer your cell phones on the house phones. It makes it unnessary to carry your cell phone while home. Little hard to get it done but works great.
I love the features of this phone, you will really enjoy it, if you hate walking around waiting for your cell phone to ring, now it can just connect to your home phone, no additional charges.
This phone works great. The main reason for purchasing this phone was to get rid of my land line ($40/month) and connect the house phone to my cell phone. So in three month this phone pays for its self.
Truely a great phone set . It talks when a call is coming in and not only has caller ID , it has caller ID with voice . You can hear your incoming messages from any of the 5 hand sets , not just the base set . We love it .
great phone system and very easy for the tech challenged setting up blue tooth was easy the only issue are the cell phone has to be within about 15 feet from the base so if you put in down stairs office or farther away you could have issues also it will not take message if some one calls in on the cell phone
I've had 2 sets of the previous editions of this Panasonic phone and they were each high quality and easy to use. I replaced the first set because the second had better sound and range. I bought this new set because of improved features with the answering machine base unit and, well, sometimes you just want to get something newer. Note: Both older sets still work. This version has taken the good from earlier editions and added features. Bottom line is there is very clear reception, good range, better message retrieval and logging, and the screen is easier for me to read .
I had discontinued the ability to make long distance calls from our landline. We now have the convenience of using the new cordless units to call long distance tbrough our cellphones.
Easy set up, loud volume, being able to link cell phones to house phone is awesome, would highly recommend this phone
I can't really evaluate this product. When I went to the store to pick up this phone, I found an upgraded model (KX-TG7745S) on the store's shelf for around $8 less than the on-line model. Set-up of the phone was easy. Its features are really convenient and the clarity is very good. It's nice having intercom capability to every bedroom. I have not used the cell phone link feature so I cannot speak to its efficiency.
Love my new telephones!! The system has so many features that I still have not used, love that you can set it to annouce who the incoming call is coming from.
I have had the 5 handset Panasonic about 2 weeks and so far it is great. I had minor trouble downloading my call list from my cell phone. I thought it would down load all at once but I couldn't find a way to do it that way. I was able to download one at a time in a short time. The problem may be with my technical ability which is still reasonably good at 88 years of age. I was surprised at the range. I have a detached workshop 60 to 70 yards away from the base where I have a handset and charger. The reception is as good as it is with the much closer handsets. I also like the feature that lets me answer my cell phone from any one of the handsets.
