I recently won the Uniden 2.4 GHz duel handset at a curling bonspiel and I am sure glad this is not something I spent my money on. Before I get to the negative aspects I'll note that I was impressed that the phone came with 2 handsets and 2 changers, only one of which had to plug into a phone jack. This is a great option if you live in a house with many rooms, but very few phone jacks,

In regards to the negative aspects of the phone I find it to be is very generic, having the basic functions of any phone (caller ID, redial, speed dial, etc.), also the range and battery life is nothing impressive when comparing it to other cordless phones.

Often when I speak on the phone and walk around my house I pick up extreme amounts of static and interference, which can be very irritating when you are making a very important phone call. The worst feature of the phone is that you cannot talk on both phones at the same time. If you answer with one handset, the talk button on the other handset is automatically disabled! This is a very annoying feature because when the phone is for someone else they cannot just pick up their handset, you have to bring them yours.

I find this cordless phone to be of very low quality and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone if they are in the market for a decent cordless phone.
