If you plan on using a wireless router, then stay away from 2.4Ghz, as all routers use that band and it could cause you trouble.

Generally speaking (and often confused) a 900Mhz phone will give you the greatest (debateable) distance for a cordless phone, while a 5.8Ghz phone will give you a clearer reception and better security but a much smaller foot print in useable distance from the base station.

I agree with Dan that you don't want a 2.4ghz phone if you are using, or have any plans to use, a wireless router - it is a source of potential interference. I have a multi-phone 5.8ghz Panasonic and am very happy with the voice quality (and complete lack of interference) that it offers. I personally wouldn't buy a new 900mhz phone if I were in the market as the 5.8ghz phones do offer better noise rejection and security overall.

I am loving my new 5.8GHz Panasonic phone.

Two people I know totally lose their WiFi when they use their 2.4MHz phone.

I would never again use a 900MHz phone after having a psycho neighbor with a highpower amateur radion station harass me ... until the cops had to take care of the situation Razz

I will put in another vote for a 5.8 ghz phone.

I have a Uniden TRU-8885 5.8 ghz digital phone and couldn't be happier. Incredible range, great clarity, and no interference, even with the microwave lol.

It even uses those good Nickel Metal Hydride batteries instead of those crappy Nickel Cadmium batteries that progressively get less and less time on a full charge. Wink

I would look at these phones if you want top quality.

The Uniden TRU8xxx 5.8Ghz series has my vote. I do have an ancient 900Mhz Panasonic phone which does get incredible range, but sound quality is lacking compared to newer cordless phones. That said, it is kind of cool to be able to go to the store on the corner and still have my cordless phone working. A friend on mine who has Vonage UK has a Senao SN-8310 cordless phone and he says he regularly gets about 20 miles out of it, but his house is up on a hill above the town below, and he has the aerial up on his roof. I don't think they're legal in the US, but next time I'm over in the UK, I'm going to try to snag one and bring it back packed amongst my dirty clothing. Smile Even a 5 mile cordless phone would be wild.

If you already have a 2.4GHz phone, and are having interference issues with your wireless base station, you might try changing it to Channel 11, which has been reported to have somewhat less interference with the cordless phones.

Also keep in mind that 802.11a uses the same band as the 5.8GHz phones, in the same way that the much more common 802.11b/g uses the same as the 2.4GHz phones. You'll prevent interference by using a different band for each.

If you haven't yet purchased the phone, I'd definitely go for a 5.8GHz phone.

I use the 900mHz type. Bought a pair of 'em at Home Depot for less than 20 bucks for the set. The footprint is hardly bigger than the handset itself, and I never have problems with radio interference (I don't use any other wireless equipment but there have been reports of hard-wired routers getting knocked out by radio interference from cordless phones)

I have to agree with Dan. I have the 5.8 gHz and it does well. The 900 Mhz will transmit further because of the lower frequency and longer wavelength but I believe you are less susceptible to noise with the 5.8 gHz. And, if you live in a municipality a lot of the short distance unlicensed transmitters used for municiple water and sewer system controls use 900 Mhz spread spectrum which could give you problems at 900 Mhz.
