My wife and I got our General Electric 900 mhz cordless phone / answering machine at Sears several years ago. I am glad to say that it is still working as good today as the day we bought it.
We wanted something that was all-in-one so that we could just have one machine instead of a phone and then a separate answering machine. I have been very happy with the performance of this phone and answering machine. I have programmed in several numbers for speed dial and that was easy to do and to use. It also has a volume on it, along with call waiting and caller ID, which are very nice features.
The answering machine has the day and time. I like being able to tell what time someone has called and left a message. It is easy to make our outgoing message and to play the messages when you have some. This is a great reliable machine!
