4/22/17 Update: Everything stated below is still true & we've had no problems with the set.
I received this phone duo on 11/2/15. I wanted to use them for a while before reviewing. If allowed I'd give them 4.5 stars. I love almost everything about them. I've owned several cordless phones recently (one set I immediately donated because I disliked it so much) & this is by far my favorite. Therefore, I'm shocked by some of the negative reviews.
Speaking of reviews, please allow me to make this brief, generalized but important statement about them here prior to going into the phone specifically. 1st, you should know what you're buying. For example, if you thought you could use the companion/extra handset without having the main phone as well that's your fault & not the phone's. 2nd, READ THE ONLINE MANUAL to know all the features the item has. 3rd, you should learn how to utilize those features & to use the item in general. 4th, you should use the item at least a couple of times before reviewing it. 5th, after doing all of this give an honest & objectional review with some details. There are so many reviews of this phone by persons who do not know what they're talking about! This wouldn't happen if they did all that I just stated. I'm tired of it because I, like many of you, rely on reviews to guide my purchases. Had I given value to them I wouldn't have purchased this phone duo.
It looks nice. I like the LCD screen including it's size, the size of the characters on it, & what it shows. At age 42 I don't have vision problems but just like easily seeing things & I can with this phone. At the top of the screen it shows the handset # you're using. The amount of charge shows via a battery image off to the left side of the screen. The time & date show at the bottom along with any other applicable images. For example, one screen shows an image of a bell with a slash through it as I've turned the ringer off on that handset. Another example, if there's voicemail for you & you pay for a voicemail service you'll see an envelope on the screen. The screen is backlit but the background is more of a light gray white. I'd prefer a crisp white but I can still read it easily.
I like that the buttons are a larger size but aren't so big to imply that you're vision must be bad. Once you push one they become backlit with orange light that is pleasant & not blinding. The regular keypad (numbers, *, & #) has a slightly brighter orange glow than the other buttons (phone/flash, off/cancel, speaker, mute/delete, & intercom). Still, you can easily see them all when it's dark.
While some state that the other person's voice is not loud enough it's way too loud for me. I know this can be subjective. I hope it helps to explain that my hearing has been tested & is normal with the exception of having Tinnitus. I wish we could permanently select the other speaker's volume level. Instead we have to manually adjust it during each call, if needed. There are 5 levels/options for this. #5 is incredibly loud. #1, which is the default & lowest setting, is too loud. A much older cordless phone allows me to lower the speaker's volume by 2 more levels. This is disappointing as I often have to provide some distance between the phone & my ear because voices are still too loud for me. I hold the closest corner of the phone against my ear which puts the other corner away from my ear. Instead of the speaker's voice going straight into my ear (which happens when the phone is held flush against your ear) it flows at about a 45° angle towards my ear. I'd still repurchase this phone despite this. However, if I needed a new phone & found another phone that allowed a lower speaking volume I'd try that one.
The other person's voice comes in very clear for me. This was important to me because most of the people I talk to are on their cell phones. While they use different cell companies there is always a hearing or connection issue that pops up. The call goes silent, they're voices go in & out, static, dropped calls, echoing, voice delay, etc. At least one of these issues happens during every call. I don't want to increase the chances by using my cell phone, too, when I'm at home. This is why we still have a landline & why it's important that we use a home phone with good reception & clarity. Thankfully, I've never had any problems of any kind with these phones at all. If you have/are you should contact the seller to resolve this.
This phone has voicemail capabilities & works with a voicemail service. You have to pay for a voicemail service (we have Xfinity Voice via Comcast) to utilize these capabilities. I was shocked that there are actually negative reviews because someone expected to get voicemail via this phone without paying for a voicemail service! You don't give a TV a bad review because it doesn't give you cable, right? You need to pay for those services! If you don't want to pay for a voicemail service then get a phone with an answering machine instead. This phone does NOT have an answering machine. Okay. I'll get back to voicemail now. Again, if you have a voicemail service & a voicemail message you will see an image of an envelope on the screen. You will NOT see any kind of light notification/blinking. This listing doesn't state that the phones have the latter anyway. If this is an issue for you then look at other phones. I'm fine with it & used to quickly glancing at the screen at the end of the day to know if we have voicemail. If you see an envelope you can dial your voicemail number to access your voicemail. Instead of doing that you can program your voicemail phone number into this phone so all you have to do is hold the number 1 button down for a couple of seconds & that number gets dialed. You can program the other number buttons (2-0) for speed dialing other phone numbers.
I do think it's nice that you're given 10 different sounds/songs to choose from for your ring tone. I'm glad because the given one always shocked me due to it's tone & volume. The given ringer sound is option #1. You can choose from 6 volume options (silent to practically blasting). The given ringer volume is either option 5 or 6. Since I prefer softer sounds at lower pitches I chose the classical song (option #10). We're happy with this & the amount of options here.
If you get at least 2 of the main unit phones you can use the intercom feature. This only works between the main units & not with the extra/supplemental handsets. We're considering purchasing an additional main unit phone so that we will be able to use this feature. It'd be nice to be able to do this instead of yelling up to hubby from downstairs!
I really like this phone set. Not only do I feel that it's great for regular home calls but I feel it's a great choice for home businesses. I wish I had these when I worked out of our house.
Again, do yourself & the readers a couple of favors. Know what you're buying before you buy it. Also, if you buy this phone, read the online manual if you haven't already. To find it I googled "AT&T EL51203 DECT 6.0 Phone Manual". I clicked onto the link (it was the 2nd or 3rd one down), selected the option for the manual, & a PDF file appeared with everything I wanted to know about the phone & more. Please read the manual, use the phone, know the phone, & then leave a review as many of us rely on reviews for guidance.
The only downside to this phone is that there is no blinking light when there is an new voicemail. I do miss that feature. Therefore I am giving it only 4 stars, rather than the 5 I would have given it if it had a blinking light for voicemail.
In a 4800 sq. ft. three-level home with the five units spread throughout the house, the range is perfect. The clarity is as good as corded phones. I love the ease with which we can stord and access telephone numbers. Phone-to-phone intercom is a big plus. You can even change the ring tone of each unit with 5 different tone options.
The slim, elegant design with lighted keys and easily readable screen is pleasing and ergonomically ideal. A perfect 5-star item!
