AT&T Digital Dual Handset
AT&T phones have always been notable for their voice quality. This phone set is based on DECT 6.0 technology which, provides a much better range without having to use more power. Another benefit of this platform is that it is resistant to interference from other wireless networks. This phone also switches between channels if any interference is detected. Therefor the sound is louder and clearer, both from the earpiece as well as the speaker. This feaure also gives added protection against eaves dropping.
The two hand sets can be used simultaneously, on the same call. They can also be used with another phone, if they are connected to the same line. With cheaper phones the length of use you have between recharges is fairly short. This AT&T phone uses a high end battery which allows you to talk for longer without having to recharge it.
The phone is easy to use and comes with a manual that has clear setup instructions. The many outstanding features include an intercom feature which means that you can talk between the two handsets.
