With one base handset included and the option of adding up to five additional handsets all while using only one base and one phone jack go ahead and put one in the den, the kitchen, the master bedroom and the living room so you won't have to make a run for it when the phone rings.
Great phone and great service1/25/2009
This is an excellent phone and the service/shipping was very efficient. Rate the phone a 4.5. The thing that would have made the product perfect is a callerid screen on the base. Having a base speakerphone and dial pad is nice when the kids take the phone elsewhere in the house, but having a callerid screen on the base makes viewing the call coming in easy before answering on the handset. But this is a hard feature to find and I am otherwise very satisfied with the phone.
