Uniden DXI5586-2 5.8 GHz Analog Cordless Phone with Dual Handsets and Caller ID (Silver/Black)

A two-handset cordless phone system from Uniden, the DXI5586-2 delivers both signal quality and a useful set of features. Utilizing 5.8 GHz extended range technology, the DXI5586-2 is able to offer clearer reception and greater range than many 2.4 GHz and 900 MHz phones. Plus, the second handset includes its own charging cradle and can be placed anywhere you have a power outlet--no additional phone jack is required.

Caller ID and call waiting compatible, the DXI5586-2 has a 30-number caller ID memory as well as 10 speed dial presets for the most frequently used numbers. With display-and-dial, you can call any displayed number simply by pressing the Talk button, while the auto-talk feature lets you answer the phone just by lifting the handset from its base. Handset and ringer controls allow you to adjust volume levels to your liking, and headset compatibility gives you the option of hands-free communication.

A handset-to-handset call transfer feature lets you route incoming calls to the other handset location, and a page button makes finding a misplaced handset quick and easy. A voicemail waiting indicator lets you know when you have messages waiting, and the low-battery indicator alerts you when your batteries are running low. The DXI5586-2 is hearing aid compatible as well as wall-mountable for added placement options. Uniden offers a one-year limited warranty.

Customer Review: I thought I had just gotten a lemon...
I bought this phone about a year ago and have been regretting it ever since. What horrible quality. I'm looking around now to replace all of our phones (thinking Panasonic) and thought I'd check to see what this phone's reviews had been. It's next to worthless and I'm glad to see it wasn't just me, my phone service, bad karma, etc.
Customer Review: Disappointed with this phone!
I bought this phone to replace my older 2.4 GHz phone that quit working. This one's a loser. It works only in adjoining rooms - forget about going upstairs or outside. If you are more than about 20 feet away from the base unit there is considerable static on the line. If you are 30 feet away, there isn't even a dial tone. This one's junk - don't waste your money.
