When someone from Woot sees this, please check the customer service email -- I bought one of these but quickly realized I should have bought two of them. Since there is no way to change an order once it's been posted, I sent in that request (last night, via the web form, so that you'd know it was legit, because only a signed in member can use that feature).
But, it's still showing only quantity ONE in my account listing.
Please help with this, THANKS! I've read countless instances of people in exactly this situation getting it straightened out by contacting CS, so I assume this is the correct procedure.
A beg to the codeslaves -- please set things up so that we can add to our order before the woot-day ends. I'm only talking about adding to an existing order that is below the max-3 quantity, not asking for anything that wouldn't be allowed anyway.
EDIT: I just heard from my wife, she said that Woot got back with her, told her to set up another account, place the order, than then have this order canceled. So, she is as I type this logging in to my existing account (we each have an account but generally use hers -- mine has a "lightweight" credit card linked to it) to place an order.
PS: Free advice from a long time cordless phone junkie -- my first was a Radio Shack "receive-only" model -- could not PLACE calls, could only ANSWER calls -- I think I paid about $180 for it -- the model with the dial-out feature was another fifty bucks or so -- oh, I did eventually convert it to being able to dial out -- back in those days, CE gear typically included a schematic. Well, after a few minutes analyzing the TTL logic -- I was able to determine how the phone determined that it was OK to go online -- and, a trace cut here, a trace jumpered there, and voila, I could break dialtone by turning on my handset. Next step was to buy a small DTMF keypad at Radio Shack for ten bucks or so, and wire it in to the audio input for the phone (with a trimpot to attenuate its output level to an appropriate level), and, mount it on the backside of the phone (the only place it'd fit). I ended up with a unique model that cost "only" $180 or thereabouts, and *could* dial out.
To give you an idea of how long ago that was, this was a "dual band" phone -- the handset transmitted in the 49MHz range, and the base transmitted at a MW freq, something just above the AM broadcast band (something like 1800 KHz, as I recall). Since a whip antenna for that wavelength would be measured in yards (hundreds of yard, probably, for a half wave or some such), the handset used a ferrite loop antenna, just like an AM radio, and the base used the house wiring as its transmitting antenna.
Fairly decent range, for what it was, but, due to the base's transmitting frequency, susceptible to receiving signals from VERY far away when the sunspots were just right.
So, the free advice -- this is a fantastic deal -- the phones have DSS (digital spread spectrum -- the only way to ensure real privacy AND decent noise immunity), excellent range and feature set -- at a price less than a pair of replacement batteries.
If you don't already have a phone with similar features, stop reading, and order these before they're gone!
