I am really happy with these phones. It has an answering machine, call waiting, caller id, date and time. It has everything we wanted this one came with 3 cordless phones but we can add additional handsets if wanted. We have had a Vtech phone for many years without any problems, when we decided to purchase new phones we wanted to stay with the Vtech brand.
Sleek and easy to use, the VTech ia5878 set up relatively easily. It has clear, easy-to-read buttons and a modern, sleek and streamlined appearance. Reception is very good - caller voices come in crisp and clear. The two additional cordless handsets/charging cradles allow for maximum convenience around the house.
The screen on this phone is, however, dimly lit and difficult to read - especially for a phone that claims to have large, easy-use features. Outdated, green backlit screen is a bit frustrating to view and the information could be made larger for ease of use. The ringer also has no character and could be louder.
Overall, this phone is a good value for the money and I would recommend it to anyone who wants 5.8 ghz phone technology and the convenience of three handsets.
Do not be fooled. The Vtech telephone just look great but like Microsoft everything that looks very nice usually doesn't work. This is because they take more time to make it LOOK GOOD than make it WORK GOOD. I have had the phone not even 24 hour and used it more than 20 min talk time that the phone cut three times. Although the signal is better than the conventional 2.4 GIG phones this is still pretty useless. But fortunately I can return mine. And I don't think I will buy any more phones of this brand.
I bought the Vtech ia5878 really like the phones. I decided to buy the phones because we already this phone and one of the phones so we needed to replaces them.
It's not the best phone in the world, but you get 3 for 1. So if you only need two, then you always have a back up. That's not bad, but it lacks some of the standard features you would get from other phones. Can't speak from one phone to another, and no speaker function. No instructions, but it didn't matter since I had owned a Vtech before. It work fine otherwise.
