Product Details

Panasonic Expandable Black Digital Cordless Answering System With 2 Handsets, Model KXTG6842B

Key Features:

  • DECT 6.0 Plus Technology
  • Key Detector Compatible1
  • Enhanced Noise Reduction
  • Power Back-Up Operation
  • Talking Caller ID2,3,4
  • Dial Keypad on Base
  • Large, 1.8" White Backlit Handset Display
  • Bright, LED Light-Up Indicator
  • Intelligent Eco Mode
  • All-Digital Answering System
  • Tone Equalizer
  • Call Block2,5
  • Silent Mode

Features:

Key Detector
Attach the optional Key Detector to your car key ring or other easily misplaced items and forget about ever losing them ever again. Using any of your telephone handsets, you can activate the Key Detector’s beeping alarm and quickly track down your lost keys from up to 200 yards away.

Enhanced Noise Reduction
The Enhanced Noise Reduction feature suppresses background noise around the caller while simultaneously enhancing their voice so it’s easier to hear them if they’re calling from a noisy location.

Power Back-Up Operation (Handset)
A powerful battery back-up system keeps you connected even 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.

Talking Caller ID
Now you can hear who’s calling from across the room without having to get up. Using text to-speech technology, Panasonic phones featuring Talking Caller ID announce caller ID information in between rings. What could be more convenient?

DECT 6.0 Plus Technology
DECT 6.0 PLUS 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 up to 80x, the transmission quality is improved and the phone’s range is extended.

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 control to select models. This exclusive feature actually lets you adjust bass, mid-range or treble tones in a caller’s voice for maximum clarity.

            bought this phone for the ability to block up to 250 phone numbers. A great feature is being able to prevent the phone from ringing when getting a blocked call (verses other phones ring once).

            Comments about Panasonic Black Cordless Answering System:

            I didn't need a new phone but when I saw the Call Block feature I immediately ordered this one. Telephone solicitors drive me crazy. I don't want to be notified when a call is blocked. Older models ring once for that. With this one you can keep the single ring or turn it off.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery came sooner than expected and phone was in excellent condition. I didn't need Customer Service.

            Thanks Abt!
