How Loud Is This Telephone System?
Both cordless handsets have been designed to provide improved control over both the ringer and receiver volume. There are six volume levels, in addition to a mute function, allowing the user to adjust the receiver volume up to 40dB and the ringer volume up to 90dB. Moreover, you can choose from 10 ringtones for optimal hearing.
How Does the Answering Machine Work?
The built-in answering machine saves messages from callers when a call is missed. This is ideal for individuals who fear they may not be able to reach the phone in time or worry that they will miss a call when away from home.
How Easy To Use Is the PowerTel 2780?
As well as providing greater audio control, the PowerTel 2780 also offers improved usability. The large back lit buttons reduce the risk of numbers being mis-dialled, while the blue back-lit display screen makes it easier to read both dialled and incoming numbers.
The visual alert provided by the LCD screen provides an additional prompt for incoming calls. This means that users, particularly individuals with reduced hearing, will be less likely to miss a call as the bright screen can catch their attention when in eyeshot.
Can I Connect More Than One Handset?
Yes, the PowerTel 2780 allows you to connect a total of four additional handsets. This means that in this case, with one extra handset already included, you can connect up to three more PowerTel 2701 Additional Cordless Handsets.
Does This Phone Feature Caller ID?
Yes, this phone can display Caller ID, providing it is included in your current package from your service provider. It will store the last 50 numbers, allowing you to scroll back through your last calls for reference.
What Is the Range of the Handset?
The exact working range of the handset from the base will depend on several factors including building materials and wall thickness. The working range can be as long as 300 meters in an open air outdoor environment, while indoors the estimated range is roughly 50 meters.
What Warranty Does This Phone Have?
For extra peace of mind, the PowerTel 2780 is supplied with a two-year manufacturer's warranty.
