    Two Great Features, June 10, 2013

    This review is from: Panasonic Link2Cell Bluetooth Enabled Phone KX-TG7875S (Electronics)
    Notwithstanding the complaints of others this phone works great out of the box. The handsets are easy to hold, easy to read, and the volume is more than adequate for those whose hearing isn’t as good as it used to be (like me). And while this phone system does have a large number of features the paper manual has a well laid out matrix for locating the features you need to set up or access. Now for the two great features I’ve never had:

    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.

    The crucial missing link when going completely wireless, July 6, 2013

    I have had this latest incarnation (2013 model) of the Panasonic wireless phone system with three handsets and link-to-cell feature for about two weeks now and am quite pleased with its overall functionality.

    After ditching my standard land line telephone and going to Vonage in 2004, I finally (June 2013) also dropped this broadband VOIP service provider since the rate plans being offered were completely unrealistic and simply did not meet my usage needs. Why spend nearly $30.00 per month for the cheapest Vonage offering which includes several hundred or even unlimited monthly minutes when my home phone line hardly got used at all? No truly low-use plans were available, so bye bye Vonage!

    I have now gone completely wireless with two different cell phone lines and this Panasonic phone system has proven to be the crucial missing link in optimizing the use of my cell phones when I am at home.

    Both my cell phones pair easily via Bluetooth with the base unit of the Panasonic system which can link up to two cell phone lines. If possible place the main base of the phone system in a location where you have the best cell phone reception to optimize your results. At least for me, cell phone pairing seems to work better when the cell phone(s) are near the base.

    Once this is done, I can essentially completely forget that I have cell phones when I am home. Everything with regard to making and receiving telephone calls is accomplished using the Panasonic phone system.

    NOTE: The link-to-cell pairing functionality (as do many other functions on this telephone system) require that non-intuitive numerical codes be entered via any handset (not via the base!) at the appropriate time (e.g., for link-to-cell Enter [MENU]#6241 or [MENU]#6242 for cell phone lines 1 or 2 respectively). Therefore, always be sure to keep the detailed Operating Instructions, which truly do cover everything you need to know, readily available. I simply keep mine near the base of the phone system. If you should lose them, have no fear. They are more than likely downloadable from the Panasonic Web Site or available elsewhere on the Internet.

    Receiving a phone call on either cell line works seamlessly; just answer the phone using any handset. When making an outgoing going call you can easily select which cell phone to use on the bright paper white display on any one of the Panasonic handsets.

    A land line of any sort is NOT needed to use this Panasonic phone system. You can use one if you like; the capability for doing so is there if you need it.

    If like me you are going completely wireless (1 or 2 cell phones only!), then be sure to select the appropriate set up menu option for doing so (see the detailed instructions provided) and not only will you get rid of the annoying constant reminder on the handset displays to check you land line when you don’t have one, but you will also activate some additional time-saving features specifically pertinent to cell phone use when pressing the various buttons on the Panasonic phones (e.g., you can directly hit the green phone button to answer instead of first having to select cell phone mode when you also happen to have a land line).

    What I especially notice and like when using my cell phones at home in combination with this Pansonic phone system is the greatly improved audio quality available through the Panasonic handsets. There is a day and night difference in clarity when using either of my cell phones directly versus first processing the pertinent audio signals via Panasonic’s DECT 6.0 technology. A noise reduction feature is also available when needed.

    It’s also pretty nifty to have what essentially amounts to spoken caller ID included with the Panasonic phone system as it not only displays the incoming number on its big, bright and clear display, but also reads out the numbers individually in an easy to understand female voice. If the incoming call/number is for an entry already found in the phone book (can hold 3,000 entries) of the phone system, the voice will also identify the caller by name, if appropriate.

    Speed dial capabilities are also available on this phone system, as is the capability of setting a time of day when you would like the Panasonic KXTG7873S not to ring/answer incoming calls such as when you are sleeping. This is definitely a feature that I am using; who needs a wrong number at 3:00 am! Ditto for the call block feature that lets you eliminate up to 250 annoying, repetitive callers permanently from your life! It also includes the ability to block all callers who do not display a phone number such as “Out of area” calls, etc.

    You can obtain very effective additional assistance in blocking telemarketing and similar unwanted phone calls by subscribing to the free Internet service called NOMOROBO which is not yet available for all telephone service providers…

    Meh, September 5, 2013

    I like the link to cell feature but it has one problem for me. The bluetooth signal causes my cell phone to still be connected all the way on the other side of my condo complex’s parking lot. When I get in my car, my phone won’t automatically connect to the vehicle because it’s still connected to my Panasonic phone. I know this is probably music to some people’s ears that the BT signal is that strong but not so much for me. When I leave my condo, I want the BT signal to my home phone to cancel.

    I hate the fact that in order to access so many features of the phone you need to have the user manual because you have to enter a bunch of different 3-4 digit codes. Whatever happened to using menus to do this? Some of the features do work with menus but many do not.

    There is NO HOLD button on the handsets only the base unit. You have to press two menu options in order to activate the hold feature on the handsets. What brilliant person designed this?

    The base station has no way to change the ring tone but you can on the handsets. So in order to not have the ring tone on my base station handset conflict with the base station’s unconfigureable ring tone, I finally had to turn off the base station’s ringer altogether.

    No backlit keys. No “message waiting” flashing light on the phone like my old model had. So you can’t tell from a distance if you have any messages waiting. I miss this feature from my old set.
