"Good Phone - Be sure Batteries are Fresh"3.0 starson by Wilco40
Pros: Speakerphone on Base
Voice/Audible Caller ID
Cons: Limited contacts in address book
Summary: After 2 years my phones started dropping calls. I discovered it was the rechargeable batteries which only have a life of approx. 2 years. At first I was not happy because Panasonic charged $15 for a pair which would mean $60 to replace the batteries for all the phones. However, I was able to find compatible Ni-MH 700mah batteries online at $5 a pair. Once I replaced the batteries, the phones operated fine and no longer dropped calls. Fro reference, I found the batteries at www.dinodirect.com. It's a Chinese wholesale so it took a couple of weeks to deliver but 10 new batteries for $25 as compared to $75, it was worth the extra shipping time.
