Solid reviews (3.5 out of 5.0) on the two-handset set over at walmart.com

The people of Walmart like the three handset set even more (3.7 out of 5.0)

Ok, so I just had to do it. I just HAD to call that 1-888 number.

The good news?? It really IS Motorola tech support.

The bad news?? They are only open 8:30am - 6:00pmEST M-F.

bummer.

Was just about to jump on this, but it looks like the only deal breaker from reviews is the lack of a headphone jack on the handsets.

Ohhh, we do need some new phones... sadly I think we might need like 4 or 5 handset instead of just 3.

Dear Woot,

Please sell phones with headset jacks. I promise I will buy one, provided it's a good deal (which I'm generally used to from woot). Judging from the comments on prior phones that've been for sale on Woot, it seems others would, too.

Thank you,
todmacher

The 3rd handset goes in the base with the answering system. It charges from there.

Those reviews from Walmart customers about this set are only three in total.

To me, a 5 star (this is not one) or a 2 star evaluation is not helpful when there are few in the sample.

No. They don't. Mine sits on the desk and rings occasionally, but of course is never answered. I have been asking myself for years why I still have a land line. There isn't any good reason. It's just tradition, something from the past that you don't want to let go of. But of course you're right. Even people who still have them don't use them. They are just an annoyance that you pay a few dollars a month to keep around. A phone number that you can give out but never have to answer.

Then again, thinking about it. . . . I flashed back to a memory of yelling at the kids to get off the phone so I could dial up the internet using my 56K modem. Who wants to give up memories like that?

I got rid of my landline about 5 years ago. People would call my house phone, I wouldn't answere, 3 seconds later they would call my cell phone that sits right next to my house phone. Every other time the house phone would ring, it was someone trying to sell something or a paid political advertisement.

I was wondering that too - these must be left-over overstock to get rid of. $18/mo fee for something you never use is kind of dumb. If I DID want one for if the power is out for days and is a true emergency phone - the last thing you'd want is one that requires power to run - get a corded phone-line-powered basic for ultimate security.

Believe it or not, there still are places where cell service is still not reliable like the one horse town we live in. And the sound quality still ain't all that. I would never insult my dad by calling him on my cell. Soon though...

I've been looking for a cordless phone that has an alarm clock to save space on the bedside night stand. Anyone know if this has one? Or can anyone recommend another set. I can't find one. It used to be a more common feature. ???? Help!

Motorola + Landline cordless phone? I laugh because way back in the 80's (?) we had a cool landline cordless set from Motorola that copied their Cellular MicroTAC flip phone model. The handsets were very small making them easy to pocket. Unfortunately they were not durable.

We learned a lesson about companies sticking their toes in the water of a market in which they had minimal experience. Remember the Microsoft cordless landline phone?

But don't worry, I'm sure Motorola got it right this time since this wasn't their first. And Google is sure to keep Motorola in the landline business due to the synergies with the Internet. ;-)

Edit: note that a lot of these cordless phones are not made by the brand selling them. Vtech makes a lot of the phones for other brands. (Including for AT&T, I believe.) Not sure in this case tho.

Yes, they can be. If you click on the 'specs' tab you'll see where it says that it IS wall mountable. Hope this helps.

Yep, for the simple reason if you have a landline and DSL internet, your DSL internet comes out cheaper at least with AT&T. So if you are thinking of getting rid of your landline and you have DSL, ask about the cost before you disconnect.

@casey00001, I was exactly where you are with AT&T DSL - in my part of the country they're pushing ("encouraging") folks off POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) and DSL. Even with a 12 mo. commitment the prices bumped higher than a plain U-Verse Internet connection. Good luck for as long as it lasts!

Maybe I missed it, but I do not recall seeing an "Expandable to" in the specs.

There are excellent deals for phones like this (Panasonic, ATT, etc...) at almost any office supply or big box store. Not compelling enough for me to buy one.

I'll never get rid of my land line. I rarely use the cordless phone I have (only one handset - no answering machine built in). I do have two old fashioned corded phones plugged into the wall though. More reliable in case of an emergency than a cell (911 can actually see your address via a land line) and don't have to worry about power outages as with a cordless land line phone. Plus the sound quality is infinitely better than a cell phone or cordless.

Good luck finding the user manual online.

(For details like whether it is expandable. I'd assume 3 total handsets is the max. Stupid limit that neuters the product and would not have cost more to design for at least a couple more. That means buying two of these packages to get more handsets would be a waste.)

The two post Motorola-split sites themselves are useless. ("Mobility", now Google and "Solutions", I think still independent.)

Bit arrogant? Obviously the product is selling, and I have 2 sets, one from woot, and until the cell phone sounds as good as is reliable as the land line, I'm not giving mine up. I just got another cell phone, and still not as reliable or as clear sounding as the land line.

I bought this phone last week when it was on woot plus. But I waaay overpaid ($40.00 instead of today's $39.99). I demand a refund of the difference, woot!

Does anyone know if this thing has a volume control on the handset? I don't see it in the specs.

The circular dial/button in the middle says "Vol+" and "Vol-" on it.

Both this the last time around. Good phone, easy to figure out and use and at $40 it's a good deal!

I don't know about this Motorola but a Panasonic set I bought from Woot does have an alarm on it. The specific model is KX-TG6071M but an alarm may be available on other models, as well.

And, yes, I do have a landline. And an answering machine. And I use dial-up internet access but unfortunately it does not make the fun dial-tone/modem noise.
