1. When you let the answering machine pickup an incoming phone call you don’t have to jog to the base station to monitor the message being left by the calling party. You can set up things up so that all remote handsets can monitor the message being left as well.
2. And the most important feature in a world of unwanted, unsolicited and mostly unstoppable robo calls is the BLOCK CALLS feature of this phone system. I’ve found that the “Do Not Call” list mechanisms provided by the gov’t are almost universally ignored by telecall centers. And complaining to the government agencies is even more useless. Before I dropped my Verizon Landline service I could only block 5 telephone numbers and when I switched to my cable provider’s phone service I could only block 20. Luckily this phone system allows you to block up to 250 different phone numbers. You can also set the phone to “no ring” when a blocked number is received. My home phone has been blissfully quiet. I only have to add a few new annoying numbers each week. This feature alone is worth the price of the phone.
For the past two years I have owned Panasonic’s TG-5566 5.8 Dect phone with multiple handsets. This was a powerhouse of a cordless phone system complete with a nice color screen and flashing antenna when calls and voicemail arrived.
I wanted to upgrade because the 5.8 phone just wouldn’t cover my large property. If I wanted to walk the dog and talk outside, I couldn’t because of the lack of range. I couldn’t even talk on my deck, located on the opposite end of the house from the base unit.
I was eyeing the TG7875S for a long time, but hesitated to upgrade. First, it had no color screen that I could upload a picture to (my old phone was able to accomplish that). Next, it had no flashing light antenna to indicate new voice messages. Thirdly, reading the Amazon reviews from actual owners, I got the idea that this would be sort of a downgrade to all the “bells and whistles” that Panasonic had put into their older phones.
I am so happy that I took a leap of faith and ordered the KX-TG7875S
Been using it for a week now, and I must say, I love it more than my previous phone system.
First of all, before you even buy the phone it’s a good idea to do a Google search for the manual to get an idea of all the things you can do with this phone. That being said, I was a bit fearful of all the menu codes mentioned in the manual that gave a person quick access to primary functions. How in the hell would I remember all these codes? Well, rest assured, everything is easily accessible through the phone’s handset navigation screen. Play around with it a little, and you’ll find that you can easily access any function of the phone within seconds from the navigation screen.
The best thing about the Dect 6.0 is its range. I get far more range across my property with this phone than I did with the older. However, I still can’t get a signal to the far end of the property. That problem was remedied when I purchased the TGA405B range extender. What a remarkable little unit that thing is. It almost doubled the signal and allows me to walk to the edges of my property without any signal loss. I’ll talk more about this device again in a moment.
I read complaints about Speakerphone and handset volume. I had none of these issues. Both work well, and there are controls to raise the volume on both. The base unit has a built-in answering machine, but I turned it off since I subscribe to voice mail service. For those subscribers like myself, you will obviously by dismayed by the fact there are no flashing lights to indicate a new voice message is awaiting you, however, a message is clearly displayed across the base and handset that a new voice mail message is waiting.
Link2Cell works wonderfully — much better than what I was using previously. When I had the older Panasonic phone I bought a xLINK device that would plug into the phone line and pair a cell phone. It was bluetooth based, like the new Link2Cell, but it had very limited range. I was amazed at how much better range the bluetooth coverage is on this phone. It easily linked with my iPhone 6 Plus. The base station is located on a top floor, at the opposite end of a large home. However, upon entering the front door, my iPhone automatically links with the base station. It’s incredible, because with the previous device I was using, it would only link up if I was in the adjoining room. So bravo to this unit for its bluetooth range.
So, yes, once you have your cell phone linked up, when that phone rings, so does your Panasonic phone system. Even caller ID from the cell phone is forwarded to the Panasonic display screen. Call quality is very good, but of course, dependent upon how strong your cell phone signal is. I have dead spots in my home so the quality of the calls from my cell phone vary.
What I really love is when someone sends a text message to my iPhone and I get a notification on my Panasonic phone. It’s really cool to hear the Panasonic phone ring and a voice say “Text Message.”
So, essentially, the Panasonic TG7875S allows you leave your cell phone in its charger and completely forget about it when you are home. Your cell phone calls will be forwarded to the base and handsets. If you get a text message, you will be notified of it.
I knew I didn’t need 5 handsets (I actually needed only 4), but I put a spare away just in case one ever fails. The handsets can be customized with individual names such as “Ron Office” or “Living Room.” Intercom functionality allows you to call from one handset at one end of the house to another. I also believe (though I have not tested this) that someone can pick up a handset and join someone on another handset in a single call.
Panasonic has introduced two great add-ons to this phone that I think is well worth considering. The first is something I previously mentioned in this review: the TGA405B range extender. It will literally almost double the signal strength of your cordless phone system. So, if you have a large yard and wish to have the ability to walk it and talk it, then this is a must purchase accessory. It costs just under $30. Next, is the TGA20B Key Detector. Clip it on your keychain and use your Panasonic handset to locate your keys if you have misplaced them. The device is nice and small, but my only complaint is that the “chirp” from it could be louder. Thankfully, the Panasonic handset gives you increased/decreased signal strength as you approach (or walk away from) the keys. So even if you can’t initially hear the “chirp” of the device the Panasonic phone should be able to guide you there.
I think I have covered everything. Just want to again say that this is a remarkable phone system. With the addition of the range extender and the keychain finder, it becomes an INCREDIBLE phone system. So happy I didn’t take the less than stellar reviews to heart and bought this phone system.
This phone is sleek and easy to handle. It has many different rings, some even as soft music, so as to wake me up gently. I was able to transfer my contacts from my IPhone to this phone, with very little problem. I found that, after I transferred the numbers, I disconnected the blue tooth and found it easier to use the intercom. Otherwise, you have to go through a series of buttons to get to the intercom feature. The caller id has large print. Also a huge phonebook.
I read where someone had this phone’s “CALL BLOCKING” feature but said that it first had to ring to block a call. I found after reading the instructions, that you could program the phone to not sound on the first ring, therefore any callers that are blocked will not go through. You can program the blocked callers or after you get an annoying call, you just set it up to block in the future. This helps cutting down on the annoying calls. It will even disconnect calls that come in as “NAME NOT FOUND”.
This is great for anyone trying to keep annoying ROBO CALLS from disturbing you.
