AT&T Handset Phone Review

I know that when it comes to home phones, there are a whole lot of choices out there. But what is the best to go with? Personally when I am looking for certain products, I look for brands that I know and trust. When looking for home phones I think that going with a phone from a phone company would be the smart way to go. I mean, they are all about phones so I trust that they know what they are doing when it comes to phones. I know that when I am looking for a home phone, I want one that is wireless. I also look for one that I can get in a set so if I want to have multiple units in the house, I can. Another feature I look for is the answering machine that comes with the set. Well my search was made easier when I was sent a AT&T Dual Handset Answering System to review. I was given the CL82201 Dect 6.0 Dual Handset Answering System. This phone set is perfect! It is exactly what I was looking for and more. I love the HD Audio. It makes the sound quality from the person on the other line so much better. I love all of the features that this set offers and I love that I can add multiple units to this set so I can have phones in different rooms in my house!! The answering machine is easy to set up and use. In fact this phone is so great and easy to use that I had to get a set for my parents to use!!! I dont know the last time my parents went and bought new phones for their house, in fact the cordless phones they have now are ones they had when I was in high school, so I thought it would be a good time to get them some new phones. I know it is sad, but these will be the first home phones with Caller ID that my parents have had. Lol. I guess if they are not broken they just figured they would not have to replace them. After I got my set and saw how easy they were to set up and use, I knew that my parents would be able to appreciate their own set as well!! I was able to find this phone set at my local Wal-Mart which was very convenient!!

    Your parents are lucky to have such a considerate daughter! For home, my parents are still using a phone they bought in the 1990s! 🙂 Thanks for the review Katie!

    I like how classic and old-school they look despite being modern and full of cutting-edge technology. But then again, AT&T has always been good in this regard.telephone recording device
