Are you in the market for a new cordless home phone? We definitely were. The ones we had were in such sad shape. They made it a habit to hang up during phone calls. They never held a very good charge either. Being too anxious to really talk on the phone, this didn’t affect me but it annoyed my husband and caused a few meltdowns from my autistic son. When VTech® reached out and asked if we wanted to try their Cordless Digital Answering System, I quickly said yes.
My husband was thrilled when the UPS man dropped it off and he and my son quickly opened it and set it all it. Liam loved that is was red. He tells us it’s “my phone for talking to my bubby” (his brother). So let’s get to the details. The answering system holds up to 22 minutes of messages. It’s a breeze to set up because it talks you through the process. (My parents would love that part.) The handset has what they call “full duplex” handset speaker phone. Nope, it’s not a wrestling move. It means that when using the speakerphone both ends can be allowed to be heard at the same time for more real conversations. The caller ID stores 30 calls, and you can expand with up to FIVE other handsets with only ONE jack. So that’s awesome!
Hubby let me choose the “pretty”ring tone, and there were seven to choose from. I haven’t personally spoken on it yet, because, ANXIETY! However, my son and my husband have both used it, and both report that they give it “TWO THUMBS UP!” Hubby is already looking at another handset to add on, because he and my son always forget to put phones on to charge.
So if you want to get your hands on this awesome VTech® Cordless Digital Answering System, you should head to Target! It retails there for approximately $29.99.
