With all the reviews all over the internet, I never know which product to buy.

Guaranteed with any product that there will be one idiot complaining that the product is sh*t and of poor quality. How am I going to decide? I have not found one product, not even after hours of Googling, that has not a bad review.

Anyway, I am looking for a new cordless home phone. I want to step away from Panasonic because the oh-so recommended Panasonic KX-TG4821 that I have now is pure sh*t. My family complains of the extremely poor sound quality. You would have to have dog ears to hear people talk. People on the other end also complain.

I found the answer to this sound problem on Yahoo answers: "Manufacturers of cordless phones that use AA batteries (alkaline) try to compensate for battery life with a very low volume. You need to try phone that use NiMH or NiCAD batteries at least."

Anyway.. which cordless home phones do you guys have?

We don't have a family phone either. We both have our cellphones. A home phone can be looked up in the dictionary and I don't want that. I even changed my cellphone number to stop the harassment of job recruiters. -_-

If someone wants to reach any of us, they'll have to try on both our cellphones.

Fuck I edited my post, resubmitted it because my connection lingered, and it was not edited at all! :groar:


What I added was that telecom companies make us believe we need their tools but we don't need them at all. You only need internet to communicate, not phones or sms! It's just to suck out your money!
