Bought this telephone because I am fed up with cordless phones which only seem to last for a couple of years, if that. Have already got a similar phone purchased years ago elsewhere and decided to have another corded phone. This phone is beautiful to look at, lovely old fashioned ring tone, handset nice weight.......BUT.... when you answer the phone, the base unit is quite lightweight and lifts off table and falls so you have to hold the base unit to make or receive a call.
Basically the cord is too short. Oh well, I suppose you get what you pay for, the price is very reasonable but the phone a bit disappointing.
