Living in a household with kids, you must have more than one telephone. That's why we decided to purchase the uniden cordless phone that came with 2 handsets.
We often lose track of the phones and have to use the "find hs" button on the base. That's an awesome feature!
The phones are equipped with caller id, redial, pause, delete, transfer, channel select and memory buttons. These are probably useful features for someone who will take the time to figure out how to use them. I only use the redial buttons and caller id.
When one of the phones is in use, you can't pick up the other phone and here the conversation. That's good for privacy but not so good when you answer the phone and it's not for you.
