Re: DECT 6.0 Phones with these features?

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.

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
