Vtech Cordless Phones Dect 6 - Lousy Phone
VTech Cordless Phone Dect 6 - Complaint
UNKNOWN -- Two or three months ago I ordered the VTech Dect 6 answer machine with two extra handsets. I ordered them from Walmart. When I was putting the phone together and before I had charged it I heard a voice on the recorder saying Oh Shoot, so I knew this was a used phone. I contacted Walmart and told them it was a used phone, they offered me a ten dollar discount or to return it, since I needed it, and I was going to have heart surgery, I told them that ten dollars was not enough for a used phone, but I took it.
That was a bad mistake, several days later, the phone in the bedroom was telling me it was too far from the base...huh! from the living room to the bedroom was too far from the base. There are still times when all three of these handsets say the same thing, now the phone is going dead during a conversation, and I never leave my phones off the hook, always put them back on the base when I am through with them.
So I went on the Walmart website yesterday and I was going to write a review of this phone, before I did, I read the other reviews, every one of them said the same thing about being too far from the base or the phone dying. So now I am left with a brand new phone that will drop calls at will. Do not buy one of these phones, they are useless, or go to the website of Walmart and read the reviews. This is a serious issue for some of us with health problems, I have had two heart surgeries in March and April, this phone is important to my health if I need help, thanks VTech and Walmart, I do not have the assurance that the phone will be at my service if I need it.
I am a senior, I cannot afford to throw these phones out, I might as well have kept my old ones, they were on the blink but at least I knew they would work as good as this piece of junk does. Like I have said, I did not have time to send them back because I had the two surgeries and was not here to take care of business, but I will never buy another one of this brand, or from online.
