    I’m amazed by the number of people these days who own nothing but cordless phones. Now, I like cordless phones; they’re an indispensable part of modern life. But, unlike a simple phone like this Trimline, most cordless phones don’t work when the electricity goes out. This phone requires no battery or AC power, and has a lighted keypad, and a ringer on/off switch–all of which make it a nice bedroom phone for emergencies. The sound quality is good, and the volume is adjustable.

    Good phone if it’s actually working, December 18, 2005

    I have two. I was pleased with the first one for a year and a half, but now the ringer works only when it is in the mood to. I have tried reprogramming it and double-checked that the ringer is switched on. Some days it just won’t ring. The second one, I picked up a few weeks ago. It would be great if that one would allow me to dial the number nine, especially since the one number I want to be able to dial quickly from any phone is 9-1-1. I am not happy. Also, sometimes when it’s on touchtone, it will only dial via pulse, so when I tried to do telephone banking, I had to run to another phone. No amount of toggling back and forth will get it to switch over to touchtone.

    I was suspicious about the quality of this phone when I noticed the tricky marketing ploy: the phone has the AT&T logo – from the old American Telephone & Telegraph from which we could expect better quality, but AT & T has licensed its logo out to “Advanced American Telephones.” These “American” telephones are made in China likely under the sorts of working conditions that would explain the shoddiness. I miss the days of quality manufacturing.

    BTW, when I went to request a return number from DynaDirect (the company that ships this product), I was not pleased that the form that needed to be filled out was not a secure form. It asked for way too much personal info not to be an https site. I can’t return the phone since after a week I threw out the box only to then discover that I had not yet dialed a number that contained a nine in it.
