    Comments about AT&T 1-Handset Landline Telephone with Large Display:

    I love the product and the wonderful features, but I was disappointed in the lack of contract on the display screen. Even with the highest contrast selected, the bright orange is too close to the value of the printing, making it harder to read. The backlighted window color should be a lot lighter and/or the print should be bolder and darker.
