This is a well performing phone but has a few design flaws. The displays (base and handset) do not have an idle mode that shows the time or date when not in use. Too few letters fit into the directory so you can not enter a longer name. The are few direct option buttons so you have to scroll through several categories to get to simple displays like missed caller names and entering directory names. The two bluetooth connections are good so you don't have to carry your cellphone with you everywhere but for texts. Bluetooth connections are easily reestablished after taking cell phones out of range. Components are very lightweight so the handsets don't seat firmly in the charges and the corded base falls off flat surfaces with little tension. The 25' cord is a good accessory. The handset displays are also not well lit but it does perform well overall once you get used to the eccentricities of the overall design. Happily, A&T customer service is very helpful.
