DECT 6.0 PLUS

Dect Plus technology takes the superb sound quality and outstanding range of DECT 6.0 phones to a whole new level. By increasing the frequency of error correction by up to 80x, the transmission quality is improved and the phone's range is extended. Engineered to work in 1.9GHz frequency, our DECT 6.0 phones won't conflict with common wireless devices such as 2.4GHz routers, wireless keyboards and mice, microwave ovens and other household items. And because it's digital, you'll enjoy long range and clear sound while deterring eavesdropping.

Link2Cell

Link2Cell is a cordless phone system that operates together with your cell phone. Simply charge your cell phone through the USB port on the Panasonic base unit and sync the four cell phones via Bluetooth. Now you're ready to make and receive cell calls that are automatically routed through all your home phone handsets. Which means there's no need to carry your cell phone around your home.

USB Charge

No convenient electrical outlet for charging your cell phone or smart phone? No problem. The base unit features a convenient USB charging port. And because it's Link2Cell, you can answer your cell phone calls on your Panasonic home phone handsets without draining your cell phone battery.

Text Message (SMS) Alert

Never miss a text message again. The Text Message Alert feature notifies you of received text message on your cell phone through an alert on your cordless handset when your cell phone is synced to the base unit.

Advanced Answering Machine Functions

Panasonic keeps you in touch with Advanced Answering Device Functions with this model. Enjoy two answering machines so you can separate your work life from your home life. Now you can be alerted to recorded messages whether you're at home or on the road. When a caller records a message, the base unit will beep alerting those in the house. Not at home? The phone will automatically send a message to a registered cell or office phone along with playback options.

TALKING CALLER ID

Now you can hear who's calling from across the room without having to get up. Using text-to-speech technology, Panasonic phones featuring Talking Caller ID announce caller ID information in between rings. What could be more convenient?

Power Back-Up Operation (Handset)

What happens to your phone when there's a power outage? Nothing, with this model featuring Power Back-Up Operation. A powerful battery back-up system keeps you connected when the power goes out. Keep a charged handset in the base unit and you can still make and receive calls with the other cordless handsets.

      Comments about Panasonic 2-Line DECT 6.0 Link2Cell Expandable Digital Cordless Answering System with 2 Handsets:

      I bought this system and four additional handsets as a replacement to a similarly configured 5.8 GHz Panasonic phone system (base + 6 handsets) I purchased at least 12 years ago. That system was still functioning but I could no longer find replacement Ni-CD batteries for the handsets; in stores or online. Online retailers indicated they had the correct batteries but would ship a higher mAh rated battery that not only did not function, the retailers refused to accept a return. Though I was pleased with the performance of my original Panasonic system this new one is light years ahead of it. Superior sound quality, functionality, performance. Love, love, love the Call Block feature.

        Comments about Panasonic 2-Line DECT 6.0 Link2Cell Expandable Digital Cordless Answering System with 2 Handsets:

        OK so the sound quality is not excellent. What's the big deal? It's still better then most mobile phones. This system has a lot of good features. It was easy to add a third handset. The hands free base station is superb; The displays on the handsets and the base station are large, bright and easy to read. The call block feature is wonderful, especially with all of the robo calls these days. I do wish you could block more than 250 numbers though. The search feature in the phonebook is a little cumbersome but it works. We have had our system in use since May 2014 and for my money this is the best cordless two line phone system in the market.

            I don't know what everyone's problem seems to be with this unit installed and works flawlessly. The sound quality is excellent I don't know what more anyone could have expected. I read the reviews before I purchased the product and I was a bit concerned but having had Panasonic phones previously I could not imagine that poor of workmanship or quality.

                Purchased this phone for business one week ago along with 2 other phones that go with this phone. Returning to store. So dissatisfied. When a message is left, you need to enter all these numbers to retrieve message, which is 2 different numbers for each line. Ring tones, less to be desired. Would not recommend phones to anyone.

                    The sound quality is so poor that I am returning the unit. Interestingly, the sound quality is a bit better when using the cell rather than the land line, but neither is acceptable.

                          the on off buttons are incredibly small, the hand set speaker you barely can hear . unless you have the the speaker phone on in the hand set. but then ever one else can hear you. as for the base, the recorder will only work if you have it set at the minimum number of rings or the recorder wont work. also the base speaker is not very good at full volume. for the price of this phone Panasonic miss the boat.

                            I'm a longtime Panasonic advocate (20+years#. They have built solid small business phone systems at reasonable prices. I retired my old 6502 2-line system for an ATT TL86109 because of some of the new features and I couldn't wait for Panasonic to release an equivalent model. The ATT was useless - very poor software design #I develop software), and poor build quality. The Panasonic 9542 came out so I was elated and bought one- mainly because if had received good reviews on the speakerphone. Although I haven't fully ruled out carrier sound quality issues, It would appear that the Panasonic microphone and speaker is not the highest quality. When using the speakerphone people are constantly saying -"What?" until I switch back. Other than voice quality the phone has worked out great. Like cell phones, manufacturers sometimes focus too much on the bells-and-whistles and not enough on the fundamental features of the device.
