    This review is from: Jabra SP200 Bluetooth Speakerphone Car Kit [Retail Packaging] (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    This item features a simple, easy-to-use, user interface: on/off switch, almost 2 in. diameter volume wheel, 1.25 in. button, and a small LED indicator light. The key to using this user interface is to observe the state of the indicator light (e.g., flashing blue vs. solid blue light), and understand the different ways of using the button (tap, double tap, press [about 1 sec.], and press and hold [about 5 sec.]). All this is explained in the User Manual. The important thing is to understand that there is only a small subset of these actions needed for everyday use. In particular, I have found that in order to put my phone into voice-command mode, I simply hold in the Jabra SP200’s button until I hear a beep and then release it (this is equivalent to a “press” of the button), so I don’t need to try to count out one second. Before I realized this, I was not sure if I was doing a “tap” or a “press”. As you practice using the Jabra SP200, you will find the audio prompts (beep tones) very useful.

    The Jabra SP200 is a perfect match to a phone that already natively supports voice-command mode (such as my Motorola MOTO W755). You can use the SP200 to put your phone into voice-command mode without touching the phone, as discussed above. Then the phone prompts (thru the Jabra speaker), “Please say a command”. Then you can say (using the Jabra mic), “Call Pat Johnson home” and the phone will respond (thru the Jabra speaker), “Calling Pat Johnson home” and make the call. Since you are using the native voice recognition capabilities of your own cell phone, you do not need to upload your contact list to the Jabra, you do not need a phone that supports PBAP (phone book access profile) and the Jabra doesn’t need to duplicate the voice recognition functionality that already exits in your phone. My recommendation, however, is to perform your cell phone’s voice recognition training through the Jabra SP200, possibly while sitting inside your non-moving vehicle with the Jabra SP200 mounted on the visor, for best results.

    The connectivity range between your cell phone and the Jabra SP200 can be quite good. I have noticed that I can park in the parking lot and enter a store and sometimes still be connected to the Jabra SP200. Of course, if a call comes in at this time, it would go to the Jabra out in your car, and not to your cell phone on your person. To avoid this, I just use my cell phone’s menu to drop the connection to the Jabra before exiting the vehicle, and when I return, I just tap the Jabra’s big button to restore the connection while listening for the confirmatory beep sound.

    Sound quality is very good to excellent when listening to a call in a moving vehicle, and can be good to very good at the recipient’s end of the call depending on the level of background noise in the vehicle (depending on speed, road conditions, etc.). I might mention that I am hearing-impaired, yet have no trouble hearing and understanding the Jabra SP200. In fact, it sounds much better than my cell phone itself.

    If you understand the specific handsfree functionality you need, pair the Jabra SP200 with the right phone, and practice until using your phone and the Jabra SP200 together becomes second nature, you can’t go wrong. Highly recommended!

    I’m hard of hearing and I drive a noisy old diesel pickup. I tried all sorts of hands free like wireless and wired headsets and all had the same problem I couldn’t hear my calls.
    The Jabra solved this problem so simply. I only need hands free for driving so it comes with a car charger, no need to charge it in the house and forget it when you leave like so many other hands free blue tooth. Easy to attach, easy 1 big button call functon on off switch and volume control.

    “The best gift you ever got me” was what my Dad said after he had this for about a week or so. He’s in his 70’s and wanted to be able to use the cell in the car safely. This thing is simple, cheap and effective. There is really nothing else to say! One caveat, it only pairs with a single phone.

    Wonderful phone!, September 27, 2010
    By 

    This phone is terrific–very user friendly. I especially like the fact that the time and date of each call is automatically entered through caller ID whenever a call is received. No need to reset the phone after a power failure. The sound quality is excellent–the volume can be easily adjusted to each users needs. The adjustable angle of the caller ID screen makes viewing calls easy.

    This review is from: Uniden 1360BK Desktop Corded Telephone, black, one phone (Office Product)

    I purchased this phone after having two AT&T corded phones fail after only one year. Since I tried to avoid AT&T products after having such a bad experience, there were few choices with the features I was looking for (speaker phone, caller ID, large display). So far the Uniden seems pretty good, especially with the nice large display which can be tilted for best viewing angle. The only negative is you can’t speak to loudly into the receiver or there will be distortion. Seems the microphone can’t handle loud voices too well. It’s kind of a minor thing, but can be annoying at times. Other than that, it’s attractive and has some nice features.
