Picked these up at the last woot-off (thankfully, same price) and they are PERFECT. Absolutely no problem using them in a large 3-floor house (base is on the first floor).

I read complaints about the ECO mode (i.e., weak signal) but have had no problems with it. My only minor gripes are the volume control is buried in the settings, and the base doesn't have a call counter.

These phones are great. I paid full retail on ours nearly two years ago. This price is fantastic. Additional handsets are easy to add on as well. I would recommend!

If you buy 2 sets of these, can you use the spare handsets so have 5 total working?

Does anyone know how often the battery needs to be changed in the handsets? My older Panasonic needed the battery replaced about once a year.

With the caller ID, after you answer the phone and are talking, what shows on the display - the incoming number or something else?

I really like Panasonic phones and have had several (change only due to technology advance, nothing wrong with the sets). But more recently you really have to know what you're getting as the quality ranges now from mediocre to excellent but without any overt marketing to tell them from each other.

I'm tempted on this set as the price is so low and they are DECT 6.0 Plus, but the Amazon reviews are neutral. Most cite the paint job on the body and numbers on the keypad as wearing out too quickly. Also apparently no earphone connection but that isn't a big deal to me. I'm thinking for something that will last me a while, I'm better off spending $30-50 more and getting a real quality phone set...still from Panasonic though.

I used to have these phones and now i want to buy them as a gift--i forget if the have "talking" caller ID. Does anyone know?

We have these phones at the office. No issues with range, but the biggest selling point was this one:

Standard rechargeable AAA batteries.

As for expansion, so long as it's the same model family, they'll work. The settings to do so are in the menu.

I have a set of these hooked to my Ooma Telo VoIP device. When there is a voicemail, the handset screen says so with a message. You then dial your own number to hear the voicemail. I put my number in speed dial for this.

The ringtones on these are annoying. They should have stuck with the basics. Sounds like a cheap children's story.

Do the handsets have jacks for headsets?

What is a call counter? Caller ID? Also specs say no silent mode... does this mean I cannot turn the ringer off?

I have had a Panasonic DECT 5-phone system for a couple years that works great. Good reception and good battery life. One complaint...two of the handsets' screens died. The phones work fine, just no display. When I contacted Panasonic about repairing them, the cost was going to be as much as the whole set when I bought them.

I always use Panasonic phones in my house because of the 2 exclusive features that Panasonic has on their phones that other phones don't have, Call Blocking and Talking Caller ID. Unfortunately, this set has neither of these features. But hey, for 30 bucks...you can't go wrong I suppose.

How many messages can be left on the answering machine? How many minutes will the answering machine hold? Can you limit the individual messages?

Thanks in advance!

Please don't delete this post, I am trying, honest!

If they have bluetooth, I would consider this a hot deal. On a good day, you can get a new 2 x handset DECT+Bluetooth+answer machine for the same price.

If you only have VOIP at home, being able to make calls via your handset thru your cellular service is very handy as a backup. Speaking from experience here.

Are you able to use them on speaker phone while in the charging dock? Sometimes I have very long conference calls and my current phone does not allow this.
Thanks in advance.

Here is the link to the owner's manual on Panasonic's website.

3.6/5 stars on Panasonic's website

NOTE: Several reviewers commented about the phones beeping as if the battery is almost dead if you are too close to electronic equipment and that this occurs even with a fully charged battery. Not sure if this beeping prevents use or is just annoying.

I agree -- want either a headset jack or bluetooth to earphone. Anyone know if ANY landline phones have the headset jacks any more?

But, found comment on amazon for this model " However, after receiving the phone I found that in fact it doesn't support have a headset jack, but after researching on Panasonic website I found that the next model up, i.e. KX-TG4032 for a whopping $1 more does have headset jack + a couple other handy features. For the extra $1 I'd suggest the KX-TG4032

Anyone know if you can pick up multiple handsets on the same call? Our current landline cordless phones do NOT allow this and it's so annoying when the kids both want to talk to the grandparents at the same time. It's also a ROYAL pain in the tailside when someone answers a call downstairs, and you can't pick up another handset upstairs without the first person going through a complicated sequence of menus to 'transfer' the call to another handset! I HATE our current phones specifically because of this!

Thanks (in advance) for the help!

I am also going to hold out for the Link-to-Cell feature. I will say that the guy from our phone/internet company recommended these rather than putting extra phone jacks.

No do not disturb/ silent mode. This should be standard on all phones

I already have a Panasonic KX-TG4034 (4-handset phone with answering machine). It works great having the base in the loft, and using a handset two stories below.

Does anyone know if I could use the handsets from this system with my existing system? They look almost the same except for the labels on the top three buttons (my handsets have the buttons but they're blank).

$1 more than $30 for KX-TG4032? I suspect you're saying the delta is $1 for Amazon's price on both (?)

For those that already have these phones.....

I have looked and looked through the specs.

Can you turn off the just the receive messages? I need to have our greeting and information but I shiver me timbers! people leaving messages I feel obligated to reply to.

Right now, so no one leaves a message on the old Panasonics we have now, I have to leave the "inbox full"

I wondered the exact same thing when I first found this. Been in the market to replace my 4 handset unit. Based on what I have read, it you can buy two and use the handsets with one unit. There is no definative answer, but the expansion handsets are the same model number as the handsets that come with the phone. And, according to the liturature you can have up to six handsets per base.

I am in for two.

Possible stupid question, but do all need a phone jack, or just the base? We only have one working jack in our place at the moment.

Thanks in advance!

EDIT

According to Ricardo R at Panasonic, it is just the base unit that needs to be wired.

May I nominate myself for a quality post? :-)

I love these since you can just use standard AAA NiMH batteries which costs around $1-$2 a piece.

I have exact same set I paid $60 and had no issue so far.

No, but since you checked with Panasonic, that's a bit above and beyond and I'd call it quality. ;)

Not officially. However, it will work anyway. I have exactly the same set bought from Amazon and so 3 more sets Panasonic of different models also bought from Amazon. A total of 15 handsets and all comes with 120V adapter. I am using them both in Singapore and Indonesia without any problems and without stepdown transformer. These countries run on 220V or 230V.
