Vtech Cordless Phone & Answering Machine Review

I have used VTech phones in the past but this is a new one that I haven't seen before and so when they asked me to review one, I was beyond happy, I was exhilarated! Our older phone is not holding up like it used to but it has been an awesome phone to have so I think the brand, VTech is very reliable and offers many great features.
We got the model CS6829 to review. It's a Cordless Answering System with Caller ID/Call Waiting.
Look at all of these awesome features!
  • Expandable up to 5 handsets with only one phone jack
  • DECT 6.0 Digital technology
  • Voicemail Waiting Indicator
  • Remote access
  • Message retrieval from handset
  • Mute
  • 50 name and number phonebook directory
  • Any key answer
  • Volume control
  • Call intercept
  • Call screening
  • Message time and date stamp
  • Single Line 14 Minute Record Time
  • Trilingual prompts—choose between English, Spanish or French
  • Wall-mount bracket included
  • Last 10 number redial

  • **Use of Caller ID feature requires a subscription from your telephone service provider.
    It's a really neat phone and answering machine and Mike was in heaven playing around with it. This is his area of expertise and I let him set up the whole operation. I get rattled sometimes when all that programming stuff but he's a whiz with it all.
    We toyed with putting it on the wall so that it's out of the way and not taking up space on a table or counter, but then decided we didn't want any additional holes in the wall, so for now, it's in Mike's office on the computer desk, well away from listening ears if someone happened to be home.
    I can tell you that the feature I really like is that 50 names and numbers that it can store for me! It gets so hard sometimes to remember every single person's number and with this new phone, my most frequently called numbers will know be much easier to use!  Another great aspect is that it can store up to 50 Call Waiting ID's, something that our other phone could not do. I like that I can scroll down and see who called but didn't leave a message.
    Most of all, though, is the Speakerphone feature that I really appreciate the most. Because of the RA & Fibromyalgia, I can't hold onto a phone for long periods of time so I use the Speakerphone for all of my calls. It has made it so much easier to not to have to hold the phone up to my ear for long periods of time. My hands get very weak and sore when I do that, so a Speakerphone is a must in my life!

    I've heard such great things about vtech. I also love that it stores so many numbers. I have a terrible memory. I'm lucky to remember my own phone number!
