Sorry, this is not a brand of cordless phone I would buy at any price. I bought a set once and the sound was terrible. Panasonic only. They might cost a little more but well worth it. BTW, factory direct is a good place to get refurbished Panasonic cordless phones. Apparently they come from Panasonic. The set that purchased worked like new. The battery durability was amazing. $99 for a link to cell 5 phone package.

I agree with will888 and have to say something like this here https://www.costco.ca/Panasonic%C2%AE-K ... 02590.html is a lot better value unless you -really- need 4 phones. I have had both set before so I can do some comparison.

1. Panasonic uses standard AAA rechargeable battery. Very easy to find a replacement.
2. Much bigger screen and text. Easier for elderly to look at. Or even for anyone else.
3. Voice Caller ID works well. Especially if you customize your friends Caller ID so it pronounce the name, no need to stand up to look.
4. Individually configurable ring tone.
5. MUCH better voice quality compare to the VTech.

I also agree with this.
Anything phones that use custom batteries are a pain in the @.ss
Had a set of Vtech phones, and I thought it was my Voip system which was just crappy and was cutting out. Turned out it was the dumb phones. I switched to a panasonic set, and my voip line is crystal clear. If anything, it is clearer than my old POTS line, since POTS line was an old install, and needed a new run from the post. Instead of fighting with Bell, I just decided to drop them a while back.

I picked up a set similar to this set, Yes it is more than the VTECH, but it is worth it. Not something you change too often, may as well get something with decent voice quality. If you don't need 4 handsets, and you can live with 2 handsets, then they have this one.

I had a set of Vtech cordless phones. The sound quality was nowhere near my Panasonic set.

Also on sale at Canadian Tire for the same price right now (and regularly I believe).

I bought a Vtech 4 unit set 5+ years and they're still working on original batteries. Voice quality is alight, but could be better. They're connected through Obihai with Google Voice, but we don't use them too much.

I agree on the Panasonic. I have an old set that was loosing charge too quick for my liking. I opened the battery case to see what special battery I was going to have to get. Surprise! Simple AAA rechargeables. I already had some of those. Yeah

Any 2-line phones? Curious to know if freephoneline works with them.

I agree with every one else here. My wife bought a VTech set from Costco (looked pretty similar, if not identical to this one), and we returned them promptly. They have terrible battery life, and they would disconnect intermittently. We had to pay a premium for the Panasonic set, but at least they work and keep their charge.

I have had both Vtech amd Panasonic.

Vtech = bad sound ||| Panasonic = good

There's a reason Vtech is always on sale cheaper than Panasonic.

I too was so disappointed with vtech. What a waste of money. Every time I see them the word,"landfill", comes to mind. They should be banned. Panasonic is better because they are so bad.

I had a set of Vtech 6529 phones that crapped out within one month after the 12 month warranty period. Dialing from any of the four handsets had no effect (constant dial tone) and when answering an incoming call, the caller could not hear me regardless of which handset was being used. Vtech customer service offered 10% off a new set which was still almost 50% more than what I had paid from Canadian Tire.

As already mentioned, buy Panasonic.

Have a set of 4 v tech phones with the custom batteries. About four years in, you would need to replace the custom batteries, which cost about $8 each on eBay. Just replaced one recently.

Panasonic does not manufacture phones by themselves. They buy OEM products and VTech is one of their source. So if you can find some phones from VTech or uniden that have same set of features as the Panasonic counterparts, they may be just the same phones of different brands.

Not likely. Just because they don't manufacture themselves, doesn't mean it is not their design. Manufacturing is outsourced by quite a few companies nowadays and they often protect/patent their designs. You provide the design, and they will build you whatever you want.
If you are willing to pay, they can build you whatever quality you desire, regardless of where it is manufactured (China, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, India, etc..) . Doesn't mean Uniden or Vtech won't occasionally "borrow" some design aspects, but they are not the same phones, and quite often, not the same components.

All those uniden/vtech custom batteries are just AAA or AA, tack welded together, in heatshrink, and a custom connector. I don't see why they continue to do that in 2017 :( Really dumb. Just put standard batteries holders and get over it. most people don't even buy original Uniden/Vtech replacements anyhow.
