5Great phone - Very satisfied with purchase
By Ray S
I purchased the Panasonic KXTGE232B system with 2 handsets at the end of April, and so far I am very happy with it. This was a replacement for my Panasonic answering system that was about 8 years old. This one has a lot of features, and after purchasing I got caller id to take advantage of them. The menu list is extensive but does provide shortcuts. It did take me quite a while and a lot of keying to setup the phones and phonebook initially, but once that was done all that was left was some fine tuning later on. The included manual does a decent job of explaining features and telling you how to move thru the menus. Settings that are shared between the handsets only have to be entered once. Some settings are unique to each handset/base unit though. To get things working like I wanted them to did take some trial and error, but I was quickly able to get things right. I have had no problems with sound/signal quality.

Things I like about this phone:

-Uses standard AAA Ni-Mh batteries for easy replacement
-Power backup function (if your electricity goes out, the base unit handset keeps phone powered on. Two days after I got the phone, lost electricity for 3 1/2 hours. I was able to make/receive calls on the remote unit and still had 2 bars left for the base unit battery)
-Lighted buttons, large display
-Call screening on handset and/or base unit, message waiting base beep (You can turn this on/off. Each handset has blinking indicators when there are messages.)
-Talking caller id (sometimes not the easiest to understand, but acceptable)
-Call blocking for 250 numbers (with caller id)
-Can assign different ringer tones for each group of callers - 15 choices (with caller id)
-Silent mode (no ringing) for each handset/base for a specific time period with group bypass
-Easily interfaces with telco voice mail if you choose to use that instead of the answering machine
-There is a volume switch on the handset so you can easily adjust the volume while on the phone
-Each phone can have it's own default ringtone (group ringtone will override)
-Small base unit for easy wall mounting
-And many more features (Alarm, speed dial, one cell phone locater, etc.)

I believe this was a good purchase.

UPDATE 1/28/15: I was having a problem blocking a range of telephone numbers. Instruction manual said to enter 2-8 digits to block. I wanted to block a prefix in an area code. Example, I wanted to block all numbers in the 310 area code that started with 325 (1 310 325-XXXX). I entered the numbers as displayed on the phone, 1310325, but they were not being blocked. I called Panasonic and they told me I could only block an area code. After some experimentation, I found out I got some bad info. The fix was to never enter the 1 preceding the phone number, even though it was displayed on the phone. Once I dropped the 1 and entered only 310325, everything worked okay. To block an entire area code, enter the area code only, do not start it with a 1.
I still love this telephone!

5Finally, my life is complete, the perfect phone.
By J LeRoy
I need a phone you can silence when you want, blocks up to 250 numbers, has the option to silence the dreaded first ring on a blocked call, talking caller id., NOISE REDUCTION/Smartfunction key, side dedicated volume button, and have a led light on top of each handset that flashes when a call comes in, and after a message is left, handy in the middle of the night when you have it in silent mode. This even has a one hundred entry phonebook (more than plenty for my needs) w/9 groups and you can select a desired group to ring thru, that wasn't on my list but is now. Large easy to see, truly backlit keys/buttons, and feels good in your hand. The last couple years they gave us the memory for up to 250 blocked numbers but took away the flashing message alert. Finally I'm happy. Have no use for the cell pairing Bluetooth and all the other bells and whistle models.

5Panasonic KX-TGE233B Dect 6.0 Expandable cordless phone
By NanAnn
After three tried, I finally found a quality Cordless phone. It has all the features we needed and is Perfect! I was about to give up on Panasonic and then I tried one more time....and here is the Perfect Cordless phone,. Works perfect, no feedback as with the last one and the keys and messages in the window are so easy to read. I can recommend this beauty to all and hope you don't have to try out so many before you buy this one.
The previous Panasonic phones were awful and I had to fight with Panasonic to return them. Still have not received a refund from the last one, which I purchased direct from Panasonic. Learned a hard lesson. Buy thru Amazon...no fuss...not problems. Panasonic customer service is awful to work with and argued with me. Also had to spend over an hour and talked to four people, to get them to agree to allow me to return the bad phones I bought from Panasonic. Amazon never does this to their customers. Rah Rah Rah for Amazon.
