Just bought this phone about a week ago we lost our cordless phone and still haven't found it. This was one of the few good choices my wife found at our local Walmart, so she bought this phone. I thought it was a little high, but I changed my mind when I saw all the features that came with it. I love the fact that it announces the people that call you. There are many of calls I get that I would rather ignore. This phone helps me do it! I don't even have to stop what I'm doing anymore just to check the phone. It has larger buttons than our last phone, so I'm at least I'm not dialing the wrong number because I pushed a number next to the one I meant to push. With our last phone I was always doing this because the tiny buttons were crammed right next to each other. There is a variety of features that come with this phone that makes it well worth the price you pay for it. I highly recommend it to the anyone who has a loved one that has a hard time getting around. It can be a true life saver, without the ridiculous monthly fees that come with other systems. We haven't set up the portable pendant yet, but soon will for our children to use. My wife bought it so my youngest child could use the pendant. That feature itself is well worth the price of the phone.
