    Default Cordless Home/Office Phone

    I need a Two-Line Home/Office cordless phone with answering machine and multiple headsets. What's the best out there? Comments?

    I'm interested too. I have one of the Seimens units, and it's a POS.

    I was looking at Seimens Gigaset 8825, and also the Panasonic KX-TG2000B.

    I have heard many reports of 2.4 gigahertz phones messing with wireless networks. My good friend had to get rid of his 2.4 because of problems. Now he uses a cheap 900Mhz phone with no problems.
    I have 5.8 GHz phones and don't have any problems with my network at all.

    I steered clear of the Seimens phone after a friend had lots of problems and check out the number of Seimens refurbs on eBay. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/eek.gif[/img]

    Just some advice.

    How about an engenius high powered cordless.

    You can mount an external antenna for extended range. There is another company which escapes my mind right now that reaches up to 30 miles.

    WhenI think of it I'll post the link.

    Yes, they're on the same frequency. Microwave ovens too. I would go with a 5.8GHz, but I haven't found any with 2 lines and multiple headsets.

    I have a wireless network at my house, so I have a 5.8ghz cordless phone system. Two charging bases, one with an answering machine and keypad, and two handsets. I got mine from Costco. It's a Uniden. I am impressed with it.

    This one?

    I've seen it in a huge blister pack while at Costco and almost bought it a few times. It really looks nice. Only 1 line though.

    Nope, the phone I got isn't on their website. It's only a one line though....we have distinctive ring. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I've always been happy with uniden and unhappy with radio shack phones.

    Fantastic phone. Replaced a 900Mhz digital. It's 5.8Ghz Spread Spectrum. Clear as day!

    Have to go with the Panasonics. Have two 2.4 DSS versions, but would go with the 5.8 versions when I replace them. If you want to spend a little more, I would go with the engenius. We have one at work. They work great but are a little heavy for their size.

    i may have the same or similar--got mine from Sam's Club.

    im very impressed. the answerer prompts you throught the setup, and both handsets have caller ID. wasnt terribly expensive.
