PostPosted: Sun Aug 28, 2005 10:10 pm    Post subject: Need cordless phone recommendation Reply with quote Back to top

Hi all,

Here's my setup which creates my dilemna. My cable is coming in on the second floor of my house and is plugged into Vonage and a wireless network. My previous phone configuration had a cordless answering system mounted in the kitchen that accepts two cordless phones.

I am in hopes of finding an cordless/answering system that has a feature that will notify of a waiting voice mail by some type of indicator on the phone handset. Years back I had a cordless system that offered this feature that would indicate of a waiting voice mail on the answering machine and I could play it back from the handset.

Do any of you have any suggestions or recommendations?

Thanks.

Ed

I assume you will be using the Vonage Voice Mail that comes with your service. If this is the case, you do not need a cordless set up with an answering machine.
You may want to consider the Uniden TRU 8860-2 or the TRU 8865-2
Both are 5.8 GHz systems and either one will support up to 10 handsets on the system. The handset has a message lamp which will light up when you receive a message on Vonage Voice Mail. You can retrieve the voice mail message from any handset by dialing the access code *123

Both of the above uniden systems comes with 2 handsets.

Hope this helps you

It's not clear to me from your message whether you're talking about the Vonage voicemail (which gives a stutter dial tone when a message is waiting), or using the built-in answer functions on your answering machine/phone.

If you want an indicator on the cordless handset for the built-in answering machine on the base station, I have a phone that does this. I'm using a Panasonic cordless system, similar to this one:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000068CNH/103-8999146-3847835?v=glance

(hope the link works)

It supports up to 8 handsets, I believe, on the same base station. I have a total of two. It's been a GREAT system. When there's a message waiting on the answering machine, the "Play" button on the handset LCD blinks right above its button, and I can play & erase the messages right on the handset on its built-in speakerphone.

That said, for the moment I'm using Vonage's built-in voicemail, and have turned the answering function off on my machine. Since I'm usually near my computer, I use the e-mail notification as my "message waiting" flag.

I don't know of a cordless system that will let you know of a system voicemail message, though, if that's what you're wondering. But by your message, I think you mean a message waiting on the home machine, and this system will do that.

Hope that helps.

The UNIDEN Cordless 5.8 System I referenced will defineltly light a MSG lamp from the Vonage Voice Mail. That is exactly how I use it. If you purchase a UNIDEN Cordless system that has it's own digital answering system, you would need to program the selection you want to use. (either the Vonage VM or the cordless answer machine)

Oh, that's VERY slick that it can do that. If this Panasonic ever dies, that may be my next phone!

I have an AT&T 2.4 GHz Telephone E2715B it has caller ID and voicemail indicator on both handsets.

Yes I am talking about Vonage voicemail,the phones do not have a built in answer machine.

Each handset has a red light that lights up and the main base station also has a red light that lights when there is a new voicemail.
