PostPosted: Thu Oct 12, 2006 12:09 am    Post subject: Digital Cordless Phones vs. Analog Cordless Phones Reply with quote Back to top

I have a question regarding digital versus analog cordless phones. The phone I used with my POTS line was a Panasonic 2.4GHz digital cordless phone. Since it didn't offer expandable capabilities, I went and bought a GE Edge 5.8GHz analog cordless phone with a base and additional handset which is the phone I'm using with my Vonage service. The call clarity is excellent.

However, my GE 5.8GHz analog phone doesn't have a couple of the features of my Panasonic 2.4GHz digital phone, so I hooked my Panasonic phone up to my Vonage service and now I'm hearing clicks on the dial tone. The call clarity is still flawless, as much as I can tell.

I ordered a Panasonic expandable digital cordless phone in the 5.8GHz range, (which has yet to be delivered), so I'm hoping I won't have this problem with the new phone when it arrives.

I know that it's anyone's guess, educated or not, but what could be the culprit? Could it be the difference between analog and digital, or the difference in frequency? Any answers will be most greatly appreciated!

FWIW, I have a Panasonic 5.8Ghz digital cordless phone (the KX-TG5421) attached directly to my RTP300, and the call clarity is flawless. I have the voice enhancer enabled, and overall the clarity and the range are just fantastic. No clicks, no problems at all.

Ditto, I'm stuck on using Panasonic cordless phones period. I've tried others, and they just annoy me Smile

I have the Panasonic 5.8 KX-TG5422, and it's works great. The clicking could be intereference from other 2.4ghz devices, a common problem now that 2.4ghz devices have saturated the market. A buddy has a Uniden 2.4ghz phone which goes berzerk anytime his microwave is turned on lol

Running Uniden TRU8xxx series 5.8Ghz phones & Aastra business phones here, call quality is crystal clear, better than POTS.

I have recently upgraded from Analog to Digital. I went from a Panasonic 2.4 to Uniden CLX 485 5.8 Digital expandable up to 10 phones (only 5 here). I found the clarity to be excellent, as important the slight echo and delay we were experiencing vanished.

Thanks for your reply. My current un-expandable Panasonic digital cordless phone is the KX-TG2248 which I totally LOVE! This is the one that I heard dial-tone clicks when hooked up to Vonage. I did not have this problem when hooked up to my POTS line. I'm hoping that once I get my new expandable Panasonic digital cordless 5.8GHz KX-TG5652M phones, this problem will go away. (Target took their sweet time sending it, and UPS is taking it's sweet time delivering it.)

The expandable GE Edge 5.8GHz analog cordless phone I have currently hooked up to Vonage, (which will be going back to Wal-Mart as soon as I get my other phone delivered) is model 25931EE2 and has no interference on it whatsoever.

I never had interference on my 2.4GHz Panasonic when hooked up to my POTS line, so hopefully it's just a problem when it's hooked up to Vonage. I still haven't received my new Panasonic digital expandable cordless phones yet, so the jury is still out. BTW... you're right, Panasonic IS the absolute best phone I have ever owned. Yes they can be expensive, but for all their features, including talking caller ID, it's so totally worth it!

Thanks for your reply. I'm hoping that'll be my experience too. It has been with the 5.8GHz analog phones I have. So hopefully the 5.8GHz digital phones will have the same success. (Whenever I get the darn things! Target and UPS are taking their sweet time. Lol )

A big thank you to all who replied to my message. I received the new Panasonic digital 5.8GHz cordless phone system w/ additional handset, and the call clarity was tremendously improved over that of my Panasonic 2.4GHz digital cordless phone.
