VTech's Perfect Family Phone (Win One!)

I don't know who the brilliant person was who designed our house, but one thing they failed at was the placement of phone jacks. We have a grand total of two: one upstairs, one downstairs. While this is generally OK on an everyday basis, it does make it difficult to run to the phone if you happen to be on the other side of the downstairs. And should we stay in this house, can you imagine the battle for the phone with two daughters in a few years?

I was recently sent the VTech CS6129-3 cordless phone set for review. Unlike my current cordless phone, this one has a base unit with a digital answering machine, and two remote units. These two remote units don't require a phone jack - they only need an outlet for electricity. Now instead of two phones, we have three phones, giving us one additional location. I put the third phone in our kitchen, making it easier to answer the phone when making lunch or dinner without having to drop whatever I'm doing.

This phone system also has callerID, call waiting and speakerphone available. The phones can be used simultaneously, used to transfer a call from one handset to another, or be used as an intercom between the three handset locations. The transfer calls option is extremely useful - imagine answering the phone and it's someone calling for your husband, who is upstairs. Instead of yelling for him to come down, or taking the phone up to him, just transfer the call to the other handset.

I'm impressed with the clarity of calls. My old cordless sounded nearly as bad as a cell phone in a spotty area at times, but the VTech phone produces clear audio with no interference. The volume adjustment is easy to use, too. In fact, all of the different features are easy to use, with intuitive buttons and menus.

Best of all for this family, these phones are WiFi friendly - they don't interfere with the WiFi signal in your house, and they can't be heard across the baby monitor. Should someone try to listen in to your call, the phone scrambles the signal for security.

I'm thrilled with this phone, and I think it's the perfect phone for a family who needs to stay connected.

Win One!

I actually have an old-style phone that plugs into the wall and has a cord between the receiver and the base part that rings. It isn't quite so old that it has the turn-dial thingy, it is touchtone, but it's almost that old! It's difficult to hear on, rings SO loud that it hurts my ears, and of course it isn't cordless so you have to kinda stay put when you talk on it. That's not easy to do when you have 4 kids! Anyway, thanks for the chance to win a nice phone set!

I have an older phone. Non walkabout. So I am pretty much stuck to about a one foot radius when I talk. Kids just love this and take the opportunity to go wild.

Wow; these look awesome! We just moved into a new house and we have the same problem you do - too few jacks.

I like the cordless we currently have. It has caller ID, which is really nice. But I'm always leaving it all over the house, which drives my husband nuts! lol I'd love to have one to keep in the kitchen and one to carry around.

Jamie said...

Ack, my current phone is a 2 handset cordless motorola. Both handsets are dying and don't hold a charge very long. It's hit or miss trying to use it because it normally cuts out mid-call. I hate EVERYTHING about it right now! I would love to win this! Thanks!

I presently have a Panasonic. What I like about it is that with caller ID when someone calls it announces who is calling.

The only thing I don't like about my current phone is that the buttons aren't backlit so I can't see to dial in the dark. And yes, I often have occasion to dial in the dark.

I could so use this! We recently had to replace our phone system because it interfered with our wireless internet signal, but the new one has some kind of glitch with the answering machine. For whatever reason, every message that is left is so fuzzy that there is no way to understand it! Frustrating. Thanks so much for the chance to win this!

My current phone is a hand-me-down from the neighbor who updates his electronic equipment regularly. The battery has about 25 minutes worth of life and it is shot. It has an extra handset, but your set has two.

Please. My phone is begging to be put out of misery.

Mo said...

My set is a lot like yours in that only one of the three has to be plugged into a phone jack and it has caller id, speakerphone, and an answering machine.

However, mine is so awful about being too quiet and having interference and echo, and it does not scramble the signal. I hate it, especially when I have to keep asking people to speak up when the phone is at the highest volume.

Thanks for the chance to win phones that I could actually hear people on...lol

Alibi said...

I actually own a Vtech. It's an older one we've had for about 7 years I think. What I don't like is there is no answering machine on it and the 2nd phone went missing about 2 years ago. What I like about it is it has good range so I can go outside all the way to the mailbox and still be able to talk.

The ability transfer calls would be fabulous. We don't have that on our current phones, and it is a pain to go track down the other person, and we can't call between phones when you are already on it. Thanks!

Right now we have a non cordless phone. I can't find a brand on it. I don't like it because the cord is too short, and it keeps me tethered to the couch.

I could REALLY use a new phone! My new set is similar to this set your giving, it has the 3 phones and you only need 1 jack but the company that made mine must suck! Ours is always coming up incomplete data on the caller id instead of telling us who is calling. Sometimes, you can't answer it, you just get a beeping sound...gggrrrr!

Thanks for the great giveaway!!

I hate our current home phone. You have to be very careful when trying to hand off the call to the other phone. We, have to yell out 1, 2, 3! And push the talk button simultaneously. Otherwise the call gets dropped. It is the worst!

My house is like yours. 2 jacks one upstairs and one down stairs. The one down stairs has a rotary dial it is that old. We have a cheap cordless up stairs right now.

I'd love to have a phone in my bed room, one in the family room. This product is so cool that way.

Our current phone set is old - we've had it for about 8-9 years old. The answering machine doesn't record well anymore and the battery dies quickly. Would love a new cordless phone set!

Homemaker said...

What I don't like about my phone I have now is that there is only 1. It's a cordless phone, but if I'm upstairs and forget to bring the phone upstairs and it starts ringing then I have to run and answer it before the answering maching picks it up.. There are times I don't even hear it at all. In the Summer time I am out in my garage alot doing staining on furniture or some other woodworking project and it would be great to have a phone out in the garage all the time so I don't have to remember to bring it out with me. So if I were to win then I can have a phone upstairs, downstairs and in the garage!!

My current phone is a cordless Panasonic. It seemed like a great phone at first, but now the answering machine turns off and on by itself at odd freaky times. I used to think it was my cat turning off, but the other day I saw it happen with my own eyes and kitty was no where near the phone!
I could really use a new phone, so thank you for the chance to win one.

What a fantastic giveaway! We currently have a v-tech phone which was probably the great-great-great-great-great grandfather of the neat one you reviewed. It's at least ten years old, and the keys stick now. In addition we have an old-school corded phone, old fashion styling (but with buttons, not rotary), which is RED. It's on the desk in our home office and my husband things it's hilarious. Anyway, I would love to have new phones that don't stick and don't require me to sit in the office while my children wreck the house!

Our current phone is a Uniden. It doesn't have the greatest range and has to be charged a lot. We had a V-Tech in the past and it was GREAT!!!! Thanks for the chance to win this - I think it would be great to have the 3 sets and only need one jack!!

I have a V-tech phone right now and think it's a great brand. My only problem is that my phone is through the cable and I currently am only able to use the one phone. I've been toying with the idea of getting a new phone with remotes, so if I win this, I won't have to decide whether to go buy a new set or keep the one that I have.

I have a cordless set with two handsets that do not work. The base is the answering machine so it is still plugged in but we had to plug in an old phone to actually answer. One of these days I will get around to replacing the set!

It came from the dollar store and the battery lasts around two hours and fourty five minutes. I am constantly hounding my hubby and daughter to put it back on the jack when they get done using it!! so yes I would LOVE to have this phone!!!

daisy said...

Seriously??? I've been dreaming over this set for a couple of years! I kid you not. Our phones have taken a beating. Okay, think about this. Eleven kids, two dogs. Nuff said.

We used to have a phone jack in every room in the house, INCLUDING the bathroom, but we had to buy cheap phones. Couldn't afford better...then the wiring went bad. Two of the phone jacks quit working, and four of the phones died.

The kids have mostly moved out now, and we are down to two phones. One remaining cheap one that we can't hear very well on, and one remaining cordless one. With these nice new ones, my honey could take one out in the garage with him, and if he gets into trouble out there (he's disabled), he could beep me.

I could put one of the handsets into my daughter's room so she would quit taking my cordless. Then if she runs it out of charge and can't find it--too bad. Who knew I could get so excited over a set of phones!? You'd think they were diamond rings or something. Ha!

I have a very basic GE cordless phone (with no answering machine), and I'm at the end of my rope (or cord, I might say) with it! It has almost battery life, sporadically static-ridden connection, and, perhaps worst of all, the page function doesn't work so I can never find the phone to charge it (not that it would matter!).

Thanks for the chance to win a much more worthy replacement!

our current phone is an AT&T cordless phone, it has an answering machine too. I like it fine, but it is really old; about 7 years at least. Thanks for the chance to win!!

Ebie said...

we have the same issue w/ phone jack placement. particularly annoying is there is no phone jack in the room we use for the office.

Our phone now sucks. It loses charge in an hour - even with a new battery!

Our current phone is similar to this, but only has 2 handhelds! I DON'T like that one of the handhelds' screens is messed up, so NO caller ID, plus we need a 3rd handset for our bonus room....
I DO like the "find handsets" option. I know it sounds silly, but hubby and I are ALWAYS laying them down somewhere and forgetting about them until we need it! LOL

Buki Family said...

my current phone is a cell phone. but we need a real phone because we will be moving to a new place and need a new phone. this looks like it would work!

Angela said...

Our phone is one of the first cordless phones. Really big and bulky and sounds like talking into a tin can. You have to pull the antenna out of the handset to be able to talk or hear anything. Obnoxious! Thanks for the giveaway!

CrystalGB said...

I have a two phone set from Uniden. It works ok but I don't like the fact that if a person answers in one room, then another person cannot pick up the other phone in another room.
Thank you for the giveaway.

LeeAnn said...

I don't have a home phone right now, but will need one in a few months when I start working from home some, so this would be great!

cstironkat said...

Our phone is so old is doesn't have caller id available. It plugs into the wall and the cord is so short. Thank you for the giveaway.

Angela C said...

Wow, do I need to win this! We normally use our cell phones, but we do have a land line. And the phone that is on there...ahhhh! It's corded, it doesn't have caller id, and it was so cheap, I think I paid $14.99 for it. the receptions is awful, it's so cracky it's pathetic. Needless to say, we only use it in emergency situations, which isn't much! LOL!

Sarah said...

Okay, okay, I don't need a phone. I don't even have a land line.


BUT! My dad does, and he works in the garage ALL the time and there is no phone out there and the old man refuses to get a cell phone. Plus, when he talks on his cordless phone anywhere but 3 feet from the base it's so staticy you can't hear.


YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO HELP HIM OUT!! :)

I presently do not have a cordless phone, I would love to have a cordless as it would be very convient for me to go downstairs with in my office, or to do laundry, or just while I am chasing my toddler around the house with

We don't currently have a home phone but have been wanting to start up service when we can buy one.

This would be awesome!

My current phone is an old Conair landline phone and I don't like it.It would probably be better to have a cell phone nowadays but we don't, can't really afford one so were stuck with this one. I shouldn't complain at least it's useable. I do like that the lighted touchpad still works, ok being silly but it's true. Thanks for hosting this contest.skyxsky27(at)gmail.com

nicolehrb said...

My Uniden quit working and we bought a Vtech...I love it, its so much better than the uniden

rebecca said...

I actually like our current phone, but the display doesn't work any more. :( I'd love to have a v tech!

Susie said...

we've only got one phone jack :( It's pretty difficult remembering to put the phone on the hook and not letting it die. I'd love the speaker phone option as my 19mo. old is famous for accidentally hanging up on her grandparents. She just loves pushing those buttons! :) Great giveaway!

My current phone is just one cheap cordless phone, it could certainly be loimproved on.

I have a Panasonic phone right now...I actually find that the battery lasts awhile - I tend to forget to put it back on the base at night and it lasts for days - but I do get some static sometimes. Overall, its an OK phone.

Thanks for the giveaway, would love to win.

crystal said...

I have a V-tech, but it won't let me walk out of the house without cutting out!
Thanks!

I don't have enough receivers that all come together. I have mismatched phones all over the house. lol thanks for the giveaway!

goin-crazy said...

The worst thing about my phone right now is that you cannot hear out of it. THe earpiece is broke and the mouthpiece is broke (or I am just not smart enough to figure out how to turn up the volume)

Jessica said...

I have a phone system similar to that...one just went swimming in the potty during a potty training session and now we have no phones. So, the thing I hate about my phone is it not working!

Jinxy and Me said...

My current phone is a pain because it doesn't have very good range.

We have a Uniden phone with one headset, and if you talk for very long, it long, it loses power, even faster if you aren't sitting next to the base. I would SO love to win this prize!

The caller id on our phone only works about 50% of the time. I would love a new set.

lisainkc said...

My current phone situation is the pits! I have two different systems running and only one is set up with the answering machine and they all have different sounding rings which drives me batty. The battery life on all of them just doesn't seem to be holding out even though you change the batteries... Gosh, I just need a new system badly! Thanks for the chance to win one :)

tlcfromtn said...

My current phone has issues. Sometimes it rings but when I pick it up it's dead. I have to unplug it from the wall then plug it back in. Fortunately my family knows to try calling back after a minute if I don't answer. Thanks for the giveaway!

Peggy said...

I would love to own a cordless phone. Thanks

Jay said...

We had a uniden cordless that have been excellent. The charge has kept up for 6 years and the battery is just now starting to wear down. The down is that the battery is pricey. Thanks for the opportunity!

Deb K said...

We have a cheap cordless set of phones that keeps dying right in the middle of the call...Please enter me we need new phones! Thanks!

meddlingkidd said...

Our house also has only one phone jack on each floor, but we currently have a V-tech phone with a plug in base for downstairs that only requires an outlet. The only problem is that the battery on the cordless for downstairs has died and since its so old it would be more worth it to buy a new phone than to replace the battery (we just haven't done it yet)...so this would be perfect for us! Thanks for the chance to win!

We have a Panasonic phone set. I like that it says the caller ID aloud, but I wish that we had more than one remote phone.

what bugs me about my phone is where the off button is located; whenever I hold it between my shoulder and chin (because I need my hand for something) I always seem to hang up on someone!

DEBIJOT said...

The loudness on my phone cannot be adjusted. The ring will bring you out of your seat. It's a heart attack waiting to happen! LOL

jennifer57 said...

My current phone is a Vtech and is pretty old. It has served us a good many years but the battery won't hold to long anymore so it's getting ready to die :"(

simply_unique said...

I love the Vtech Brand I have one but it don't have a answering machine so this would be perfect!
