I bought a new cordless phone. It was a spur of the moment buy. I did not research the matter as usual. It was a Vtech cs5111 phone. It looked very nice on the box. It had an impressive range of features. Some of the features included: it was 5.8 GHz, it had call waiting, caller id, and voicemail.It has a nice large lighted display that shows the number calling, the time, the date, battery bar, and number of calls.It has a button to push to find where you left the phone. This phone can be mounted on the wall or rest on a surface. All n all I though this phone was just what I was looking for.
Got home and I charged it for 16 hours. I called it from my cell phone and it rang. I thought great it must be ready for use. I picked it up and turned it on and nothing! No dial tone. I turned it off and waited a minute like instruction book said and turned it on and still nothing. I turned it on again and watched the handset. It says connecting and then a second later it said it could not connect and it shut off. I tried it in other places in the house that had working phones. Nothing. It still would not work.
Ok tomorrow it goes back and this time I will look for a better brand name. Better yet I willresearch Shared Reviews.com for athe right brand!
