I had one just like this one and then lighting struck my house, got the phone system, lines and my hopper and joey and a tv. So I was well pleased before that and I ordered a new one to replace the old one. It works fine just like the old one did.
I am not satisfied with the phone. The key pad does not light up and the lines 1 and 2 are confusing. Often I do not get my calls because the phone is not working. Also, I only have one hand phone, not two as advertised. I called to ask about the key pad and was told it did not light up. I am not sure why i have teo lines.
Did not want to have to purchase a new corded/cordless phone but the keys on my 7 year old ATT phone stop transmitting any signal. Was looking for a wall mount base with a corded handset, cordless extension , built in CID, answering machine and headset capabilities. Found the ATT CL84102 on this website. This phone solved the problem. This phone is nice and clear. Have to get a longer handset cord. So far happy with this phone
My husband and I are old, really old, We remember when we picked up the telephone and the operator said: Number, please? Time went on and we could dial a number on the phone. Then, there was a thing called "the princesses phone--can't remember much about that.
Moved into a house and I think there was a telephone on the wall--then another telephone with the help of friends. THEN, RECENTLY WHEN WE ARE VERY, VERY OLD AND I AM VERY, VERY SICK,THE PHONE WE HAD DIED.
Got another phone from Best Buy, couldn't understand it.
I searched on the internet for a phone like the one we had had!!! No longer made! Cry, cry, fuss, fuss. Then, I found that there was a phone, still in stock, but no longer made HOWEVER, THERE WHERE STILL A FEW IN STOCK. "I SAID " THANK YOU, JESUS!"
We can't get it on the wall, but that is the least of our worries. It rings and we can answer it. Left messages are the wrong date, and we have n idea how to fix that, but that is the least of our worries. I'm on oxygen and am opeful, it will keep going.
I see below I could post a photo or video--I don't think you would want either of those!!

Excellent reception on the corded and cordless phone
I just received and installed this phone set. It is a high quality model, and I can hear and speak with no difficulty. I am very pleased with this purchase, and would recommend it to anyone who wishes to keep a corded phone service..
I am missing the little 'blip' noise that my old phone had when there was a message waiting. I have to get used to checking the base to see if there is a message. Also, I kind of wish I had not gotten the corded one (maybe just got 2 handsets) because I was under the misconception that the corded phone would work if the power went out. People are telling me that it is wrong due to the WIFI system ??versus the older system? I'm a senior citizen so I am a bit challenged with new devices. (can you tell?) This phone has excellent features and I can hear well and people tell me that they can hear me better than ever. The larger buttons are an asset and the caller ID is an easy read for my old eyes! Would definitely recommend.
The new phone needed to be louder for my husband he is hard of hearing,I only used my pryor phone 6 months,what a waste.your customer service was very helpful thank you. Now lets hope this will work a lot better
I like the phone, this is a replacement of one I had just like it same model number of phone and handset, The reason I got it is because I had two sets from my other phone however I cannot get them to work with this phone and they have the same number. That's my problem.
