DECT 6.0 Phones with these features?

I got a DECT 6.0 wireless phone for cheap to use on my VOIP ATA and I am impressed with the sound quality and the range of the signal. The signal goes way father than my 5.8 GHz phone.

But someone in my family needs one with these features (and I'd like to have them too once I have the cash to get them):

A DECT 6.0 phone with:

Headset jack

2 lines or more

no need for answering machine, but ok to have

1-99 number store

other things I can't think of at the moment.

Anyone know of something of good quality that fits the bill? I heard that ATT phones might be the choice?

I use a Uniden DECT 6.0 2 line phone. It saves 50 numbers but I think others save more than 100. I find the quality very good.

Stay away from Uniden. I've gone through two models of their DECT 6.0 phones with horrible results. You can be sitting right beside the base using one of the cordless handsets and it will drop the call, the display saying OUT OF RANGE. This happens way too frequently. Uniden replaced the first set with another, but it still does it.

I got a Panasonic set that works well, no OUT OF RANGE dropped calls.

Some further research leads me to think that the ATT phones are maybe best, and have all the features.

Same here. I had a Uniden set that had a range shorter than I expected. Luckily (I think), a kid and a bathtub provided a solution: replace them. I picked up a Panasonic model as well and have better range (not only the whole house, but a few doors down the street... these kids are out of control). Also, my Call Waiting Caller ID never worked quite right on the Uniden, repeatedly showing 000-000-0000 as the number
