The sale is in store. You'd have to check for local stock.Showing OOS for me. I've been using Panasonic phones for years, but one thing I hate is that the charging base and/or batteries have died on three different sets now. I have resorted to using an external charger now.
One of the things that recommends these phones over others is that they use standard sized Ni-MH AAA batteries so at the worst you can replace them fairly easily.
We had no issues with battery over the 12+ years, but our phones stay in the chargers unless they're in use so maybe that helped?
Managed the swap without any issues except for voice mail. The built-in answering machine is working fine, but I'm guessing there's some codes I need to set in the menu in order to get it working with Rogers' VM system.
I'll also have to check to see if there's a way to pair one of the old phones with the new base unit. The system can support up to 6 phones and only ships with 5.
edit: Pairing the extra phone was easy enough. There's a registration option in the initial setup menu, and a button on the base station to pair (just like pairing bluetooth).
Gasp... you still have a landline?! Whatever that means these days lol We cancelled ours a while ago. Only people who used it were my Mom (relatively easily switched to calling my cell) and telemarketers / scammers!
Yeah, we do still have a landline. We're retired, spend most time at home, and while I tend to keep mine with me, my better half only has her cell with her when she's out and about.
It's still the primary telephone number we give out.
