We bought this cordless phone/answering machine combo about 1 1/2 years ago when our old anwering machine suddenly died. We already had this particular phone without the attached answering machine so we knew it was a good phone.
The phone is black and silver and looks very nice sitting on the breakfast bar in my kitchen. It can also be hung on the wall if you would prefer.
This phone has all the normal functions of a cordless phone. It has a caller ID display and will hold the last 40 calls received. It has speed dial with a 10 number memory. It has buttons to search through the caller ID display that are also the volume buttons. This phone also has buttons for redial, delete/channel, mute, memory, format and flash. There is also a page button on the base that will make the phone beep if you misplace it.
The answering machine is very easy to use. To record your message, just hold down the button and record. It holds 14 minutes of messages and has a flashing display if you have a new message.
This is a nice little phone/answering machine at I good price that I would highly recommend to anyone.
