Features:

  • BLUETOOTH CONVERGENCE SOLUTION
    Like using your cell phone at home but don't like carrying it around? Now you can make and receive cell phone calls though your multi-handset home phone with the Bluetooth-powered Panasonic Link-to-Cell. Link-to-Cell harnesses the power of Bluetooth to combine the freedom of your cell phone and the convenience of a home phone. By linking your cell phone to the Bluetooth-powered Panasonic Link-to-Cell, you can make or receive calls on all compatible Panasonic home phone handsets. Don't want to be without your cell phone's phonebook? No problem. With Link-to-Cell's Phonebook Transfer feature, you can transfer up to 600 names and numbers from your cell phone to the built-in handset directory via Bluetooth. Link-to-Cell also features Bluetooth headset connectivity so you can keep the conversation going and your hands free. Perfect for those times when you're talking but need to walk around your office or home, open drawers, flip through files or write.
  • DECT 6.0 PLUS
    DECT Plus technology takes the superb sound quality and outstanding range of DECT 6.0 phones to a whole new level. By increasing the frequency of error correction by up to 80x, the transmission quality is improved and the phone's range is extended. Engineered to work in 1.9GHz frequency, our DECT 6.0 phones won't conflict with common wireless devices such as 2.4GHz routers, wireless keyboards and mice, microwave ovens and other household items. And because it's digital, you'll enjoy long range and clear sound while deterring eavesdropping.
  • RANGE BOOST
    Clarity even at extended range is a hallmark of Panasonic cordless phones. Our 2011 line-up features Range Boost technology; a built-in antenna to the base unit; that extends transmission range by up to 20% compared to previous generation phones, so you can keep talking as you keep walking.
  • INTELLIGENT ECO MODE
    This feature automatically lowers the power consumption when you're using the handset close to the base unit. Not only does it extend the available talk time, it's good for the environment. When less power is used by the handset to communicate with the base unit, battery life is prolonged which results in less frequent charging and can result in fewer batteries in landfills.
  • TONE EQUALIZER
    Everyone hears differently. To maximize clarity or accommodate hearing loss, Panasonic added Tone Equalizer to all 2011 models. This exclusive feature will clarify the voice of the person you are talking to, producing a more natural-sounding voice that is easier to hear and understand.
  • POWER BACK-UP OPERATION (Handset)
    What happens to your phone when theres a power outage? Nothing, with our 2011 models featuring Power Back-Up Operation. A powerful battery back-up system keeps you connected so when the power goes out. Keep a charged handset in the base unit and you can still make and receive calls with the other cordless handsets.
  • SMART WALL MOUNT
    Several models feature a sleek, low-profile base unit with a reversible pedestal. These models are ideal for kitchen use because they dont take up a lot of room on a desk or countertop, and they can be quickly and easily mounted to a wall by using the reverse side of the pedestal.

I pre-ordered this phone when it first came out and couldn't be happier with it. I think a lot of the negatives that other people have written are because they did not follow the instructions or read them thoroughly. If you download the instruction manual to your computer it makes it extremely easy to look up how to do anything. The phone links perfectly with the iPhone. Caller ID and voice caller ID announcements work just as they should. Battery life is phenomenal. Not lacking any features that I could think of. The only thing that I would like to see on the next version would be to make the Call Answer and Call Disconnect buttons larger or easier to distinguish without having to find a pair of glasses. I have recommended this phone to several people who have purchased it and love it as much as I do.

Awesome phone features. It has everything I ever need in a phone primarily used for home-office as well as personal use. The feature list is too good and my wife and I use it extensively. However after approximately 6 months the phone started giving me a lot of trouble. I question it's durability and quality. 1) It would suddenly disconnect the call without warning. Tech support had me re-initialize the phone and now it works. 2) One handset's speaker phone would not work but regular "Talk" would work. They sent me a replacement. 3) After 9-10 months another different handset's speaker has started to malfunction. Voices sound crackled. They are sending me a second replacement. Not sure how many such issues I would keep getting with not even a year's completion?

    The features are average for cost. My greatest disappointment has been that the identification on the push buttons soon wears off with little use.

      Comments about Panasonic Black Link-To-Cell Bluetooth Digital Cordless Phone System:

      I was surprised at the many features. My previous phones were not as user friendly. I have used the set for several months with daily use. I have not experienced any problems. The sound quality is great with the handsets, but just average with speakerphone. Perhaps I got the pick of the litter because I am pleased with the entire set and I am usually no so easy to satisfy. The BlueTooth was a bit tricky to set up due to hard to understand directions but after it was used, no problems. The system does have good range.

      Answering Machine Does Not Record Incoming Calls

      from Indiana, USA

      Pros

        Comments about Panasonic Black Link-To-Cell Bluetooth Digital Cordless Phone System:

        The answering machine Will NOT record the incoming calls straight out of the box. Since the unit was purchased for the answering, machine, Not Recording the incoming calls renders the unit worthless for it's needed function. Sadly, the box and packing materials were discarded before it was realized the calls were not being recorded. Without the original box, the retailer, where the unit was purchased, will not accept return foe exchange. Moral of the story, when purchasing an answering machine, have someone phone you, leaving a message to insure the answering machine actually records those messages.

              I notice by reading other reviews, that many are having the same problems as I. After 6-7 months, the sound quality decreased and the speaker phone function stopped working on 2 of the 4 phones.. Also, the sound quality on one phone is terrible. It has static and if I move it to another location, it makes no difference. Not impressed.

                Comments about Panasonic Black Link-To-Cell Bluetooth Digital Cordless Phone System:

                The caller block feature is my favorite. From now on the annoying calls only bother me once. Then you push a few buttons and that caller will be blocked. You only receive a half ring, and they get a busy signal. The caller I.D. is also nice as you can wait to hear who is calling before getting up to answer it. The only drawback is that it only starts announcing after two rings. The announcement is sometimes difficult to understand but this is often the case with a machine talking.

                  Comments about Panasonic Black Link-To-Cell Bluetooth Digital Cordless Phone System:

                  The Basic phone design is good. The features are good. The number one basic feature is talk on the handset and the maximum volume on the handset is not acceptable (very low). The speaker volume is really good; it is just the handset volume. Not seeing the caller ID on the main screen is another downfall. This is standard with most uiser interfaces. And operation of the phone is not intutive for basic deleting of missed calls and messages. One to many button pushes for some of the features. Correcting the issue mentioned above could make this the best phone in the marketplace. It is the basic everyday operation that lacking and has issues on the device.

                      Excellent phone, love the feature set. Button layout is good, quality tactile feedback buttons always a plus for me. Menu system makes sense and easy enough to navigate. There was one caveat; The time kept bumping down one hour and I couldn't figure out why it was resetting my time. I finally discovered after digging through the manual that caller ID can be used to calibrate the clock. Now that sounds all good and wonderful until you determine the time zone of caller ID is not the same as where you actually are. On most phone lines this would be fine, but I use a VOIP connection through MagicJack so I had to turn off the Caller ID time sync from auto to manual, then reset the proper time and let it be. Remember, your physical location is irrelevant to a VOIP phone system so your VOIP time zone may not agree with your physical location.

                        link to cell is a great feature. At first I did not think I needed it , but when my wife was home and we both had many conference calls at the same time, it was great! She was on landline, I used link to cell. I really like the headset plug on the handsets. Many current phones don't have that, but its really essential for me as I am on hours of conference calls daily. Only con - when you put it on mute, if you unplug headset or switch to speakerphone, it automatcally takes it off mute. Which has been embarrassing a couple times. Would also like perhaps a more prominent indicator of mute, e.g. flashing yellow light on handset or base unit.
