The base station includes a built-in Telephone Answering Machine (TAM) that automatically answers and takes a message from the caller when you cannot answer the call yourself. This models digital recording system captures up to 40 minutes of messages. You can see the message count without operating the handset. Voicemail messages can pile up while you're away. Having to operate the handset just to see how many messages you have is bothersome. The handy counter is located on the base unit and makes it easy to see how many messages you have at a glance when you return home.
When a caller leaves you a message, the handset can display the caller’s details in a list. This allows you to skip to particular messages by selecting the caller’s details from the list on screen. Caller ID is a subscription service offered by many telephone service providers. When an outside call is being received, the caller information is displayed. Caller information for the last 50 callers is logged in the caller list from the most recent call to the oldest. Incoming Call Barring feature allows the unit to reject calls from specified phone numbers that you do not want to answer such as junk calls. *Requires subscription to a Caller ID service.
Announces who is calling so you don't even have to look at the LCD. The name of the caller is announced when someone calls. When you cannot reach your phone or when you're busy and can't see the screen, the name of the caller will be verbally announced. *Requires subscription to a Caller ID service.
The backlit 1.8-inch screen is easy-to-read, and helps navigate through the simple menu clearly. The TFT (thin film transistor) LCD lets you see both characters and colour images with a GSM-like clarity that wasn't possible with conventional STN (super-twisted nematic) displays.
Up to 250 names and phone numbers can be entered and stored. The phonebook allows you to make calls without having to dial manually. You simply search for the name and select the number you want to dial.
One full charge of the battery will provide about 12 hours of talking time before the battery will need re-charging. When the handset is not being used but left off the base station, the charge will be retained for up to 250 hours before requiring a recharge.
A High-precision error correction system ensures clear conversation with less sound glitches, allowing you to enjoy a smooth, error-free conversation even when you're far away from the base unit.
If you want other people in the room to join in your conversation or you want to use the phone without holding it to your ear, no problem, just press the "speakerphone" button.
Lets you know when the baby starts crying, even from another room. This can provide peace of mind for busy parents. When activated, the handset will capture the baby's crying voice and the sound will be heard on a handset in another room.
Off to bed or need to put the baby to sleep? Now its simple to set times when you don't want the phone to ring so you will never be disturbed. Instead the handset will flash silently.
The keys do not protrude far from the handset, so they require only a gentle press and have a positive feel. They also help to give the handset an attractive slim appearance.
One touch Eco modes let you lower the power consumption by one touch pressing the eco button on the handset. In eco mode, the signal output is reduced by 90%*. * Compared to the normal mode
SMS allows you to send and receive short text messages (160 characters max') between other fixed-line and mobile phones that support compatible SMS networks and features. *Requires subscription to Caller ID and / or SMS service offered by your telephone company.
If you like to keep your phone in the bedroom there is no need for a separate alarm clock. The Panasonic alarm function lets you set a different wake-up time for each day, and the Snooze function sounds the alarm every 5 minutes.
For large houses or large families you can add additional handsets. Up to six handsets (available to purchase separately) can be paired to the master base unit allowing every family member to have their own handset or allowing handsets to be placed conveniently around the home in different rooms.
