...However, the buttons are very small, you end up presing all the wrong numbers when trying to dial a number. For people with long hair the plastic catches your hair. There is a setting for how loud you want it to ring, which ranges from silent to loud to very loud. But for a private conversation this phone is a no, you could be sitting on the other side of the room but you can still hear everything the person on the phone is saying. I've knocked this phone off the table by accident quite a few times and it hasnt even recived a crack, so it is a good strong phone. Overall this phone is good for bedrooms or presents.
