I work from home and spend a lot of time on the phone and this is a great one. Battery is never a problem, it's easy to use, and to navigate the menu. Always clear reception and the loud speaker is nice too.
Next step could be to create a VPN tunnel that let your smartphone check your voicemail on the home phone, even when you are not in the same wifi. That would be a super idea

Wanted the Smartphone Connect Feature, I thought.... while it will connect an incoming home call to the cell as a second handset, it won't go the other way, a cell phone call cannot be answered on the Panasonic handset. Call clarity is not as good as expected, actually worse than my 5 or 6 year old previous Panasonic set. The App that you download to your cell is rather clunky, if you use your phone in a locked condition, you have to unlock the phone and go through a bunch of button pushing to get the call answered, all this takes so long, you miss lots of calls. Setting up the Wifi system to the base was troublesome at best, tried the handset first, then the base, using the procedures detailed and finally resorted to using the WPA button on my wifi router. I went through the whole process maybe 10 times before it finally grabbed my network, and I can't tell you why it did after all the failed tries. Lastly, for the price of the unit, you should get at least one or two extension units. As it is now, I feel rather taken in terms of value. So, in summary, if the app was updated to have a smoother relationship with your cell phone, it would go a long ways to making this a worthwhile phone. As it is now, I'm not a satisfied customer.

    recommended- with warning re smartphone app

    By 

    from Madison, WI

    Comments about Panasonic Black Home Phone Connect:

    Besides the top rating from The Wirecutter, one reason I chose this model was for the Smartphone Connect app. The ability to have a cellphone work as another handset to the landline is simply a good idea. I'm happy to say the SmartPhone Connect app was easy to set up, and works reliably- it's as good as your home WiFi is. The downside is that to use the cell phone to answer an inbound call on your landline, the Smartphone Connect app needs to be running. And when the app is running, it chews through your mobile's battery. I installed SmartPhone Connect on the same day as iOS9, and at first, I thought the OS upgrade led to horrible battery life. But after disabling SmartPhone connect, iOS9 is just fine for battery- it's the app. Other aspects of the phone work well- voicemail puts a time/date stamp on each message (thankfully!), voice quality is as good as a landline gets, and wireless range exceeds my modest property bounds- thats as much as I ask.

    Best Panasonic Phone I've Owned

    Pros

    • Clear Reception
    • Durable
    • Easy Controls
    • Small and compact

    Cons

    • No cons that I know of

    Best Uses

    • Great Intercom set up

    Comments about Panasonic Black Home Phone Connect:

    This Wifi set up was so quick and everything worked great. One thing I like about the answering machine is after you listen to message the base still shows the amount of messages yet until you delete them. With older Panasonic I had to leave memo that there were some messages for My wife.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Sale, Customer Service and shipping from Abt was one of the best I've ever had. I will defiantly be buying more from ABT.

                  I have had Panasonic phones for 15 years. They are typically durable and clunky as cordless phones go. This phone is very sleek and light and I hope as durable as the past models. So far so good.
