I looked online but I want opinions from here .....

I cannot seem to find a decent damn cordless phone. Who makes a good one?

Panasonics are pretty good.

We've gone through quite a few at our house. The cheap GE's seem to suck slightly less than most others. For the price, they are hard to beat.

We have several Panasonic KX-TG2740. 2 lines. Can add up to 8 "satellites" to each one. Replacement batteries can be purchased at Radio Shack when necessary. Haven't had any problems. Hope this helps.

Had a Uniden for quite a while and no problems thus far. It even kept working after my wife left one of the handsets out in the rain. Uniden replaced it for free too.

Panasonic - hands down! i have AT&T, uniden, etc and the panasonic has the best clarity and longest battery life.

I highly prefer Uniden,
but Panasonic would be my second choice.

I like my Uniden.

Well, I've been using my Sony 800mhz phone for about 6 years now.

I drop it all the time, it doesn't care.

The thing with cordless phones is that the battery pack purchases can really add up to the point where it's better to find one for $50 new and hope you get 3-4 years out of it and just buy another after the battery packs piss you off enough.

I would love to know which phone is the best in terms of range.

I had a Sony 900 mhz DSS phone years ago that would literally go almost a quarter mile. The ne 5.8 ghz phones that I have wont even go half that. The Sony went through walls with no problem. I have heard that the wattage is the most important. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions which is the most powerful cordless?

I've had dozens over the years, the best one is what I'm using now a 2.4ghz Motorola - no complaints at all.

I have a uniden multi handset system (2.4GHz), and it works well.

You can save numbers and copy them to other phones on your 'network'. Clarity and range are good, and IIRC, the handsets will act as repeaters to extend the range to the base station.

Caller ID and all that jazz work fine on em.

+1 for Uniden

A little pricey but are very nice phones.

My 2.4ghz Vtech is great.

From a telephone repairman just stay away from GE and Vtech. The Vtech phones all seem to develope battery problems after awhile and the GE phone just do weird stuff. If there is an AM radio station near you thats all you'll hear on the GE.

It sounds like Panasonic is the way to go!

Panasonic... VTech has gone down in quality over there years. Still good, but not as good as it used to be.

I think I have the same set. Best phones I ever hade including hardline. There was 3 in the set and they say you can add another.However I have been unable to find the single.

I just replaced my Vtech multi-handset system (which I loved and can heartily recommend) with a Motorola SD4500 multi-handset system which I also like a lot (I haven't had it long enough to say I love it!).

The cool thing about the Moto system is you can put up to 8 stations on it, but get this: a station can be a handset, a color camera (that you can see on any handset if you buy the more expensive color LCD handset) or A CELL PHONE DOCK (alas for Moto phones only). Each dock appears as another phone line on the system. Uber cool!

So I bought 2 docks, one for my cell and one for Mrs. aa's, 6 handsets and the base. It's only a short time before I sh*tcan my wireline phone service.
