Panasonic KX-TGH220 Digital Cordless Phone, my previous telephone as the volume was generally pretty poor and was I admit hesitant to replace it

Great phones huge battery standby. Have been using these for about a month and have to say are very good. The colour display is excellent as you can see caller id very clearly. For visually impaired this would be one of the best phones out there. Normal sound quality again can’t fault and hands free is also fine. Nicely compact and very comfortable to use. We were away for a week and there was still ample charge when we came back.

Could be simpler to set up… but happy with new model. Replacement panasonic phones for previous model which we have had for around ten years. Fairly easy to set up but so much info to take in. It also takes a while to find the number you want as scrolling for names/numbers is a bit slower than old phone but still happy after a few day of use.

Brilliant phones that look good with plenty of functions. Perhaps more than i realised and don’t need. If i bought again i would by the cheaper model in the same range as i have paid more for functions i don’t need and won’t use. Includes baby monitor and find your keys function. To use the key find you need to make a further purchase. For caller id you have to set this up with phone provider, easy to do and free for one year with bt after which there is a charge for this.

I do like this phone albeit with two problems. I do like this phone albeit with two problems, one of which is quite significant. Good points- plenty of options to fiddle around (although i’m sure most people won’t be that bothered with most of them but that’s true same with any phone you buy whether it be a house or mobile phone),and it’s comfortable to hold on long conversations. Bad points- navigation through the menus is a bit on the slow side but not slow enough that you wouldn’t be able to live with it. The main gripe that i have is the sound when talking to people, it’s muffled and not very loud on full volume. I’m finding myself asking people to repeat things fairly regularly. It’s not crisp like my other panasonic phone which i’ve had for around 8 years+ and i didn’t really want to replace it except it was starting to have random problems, one of which was charging, it wasn’t always charged after being on the dock all night and that was with brand new batteries. I don’t know whether it’s specifically this phone that’s muffled and i do have to say that i’ve bought panasonic equipment (tv, 5. 1 amp, mobile phones, house phones etc. ) for decades and have always been hugely satisfied with everything 100% up until i bought this.

I brought these to replace a previous panasonic telephone/answering machine. I brought these to replace a previous panasonic telephone/answering machine that after 12 years refused to accept charge even if the batteries were changed. I hope this will be as reliable and trouble free as my old unit and other panasonic products.

Panasonic KX-TGH220 Digital Cordless Phone with Colour LCD – Black : Nice, really nice, no headphones slot. This was a nice surprise (minus one thing):some things that i found out after i got it:* you can change the background of the display to one of the presets. It’s a nice personalization feature* it has polyphonic sounds. It has a decent list with both panic-style and calmer rings* it is multilingual w. Phonebook entries, meaning you can write names with non-latin characters. The latin character set has the benefit of both uppercase and lowercase letters* you assign categories to phonebook entries and you can then assign different ringtones to categories. It supports 10 categories* it has enough room on the screen to display the caller name and the number, including a second line for the number in case it overflows* you configure the base-unit from the headset, which i haven’t experienced before and it looked cool. You can turn off the ringing of the base-unit from the headset* it has a “secure” setting which i assume that somehow encrypts the communication to the base station in order to prevent others from listening to you. Note that it’s off by default* it is pretty programmable and kind of incorporates square logic. I liked the navigation as most things seemed logical. It also has codes associated to each function which you can type from the menu to go directly to a certain setting. Pretty useful when reading the manual as it uses these codes to guide you* it has some little goodies that make life easier like being able to skip the first ring in order to give you time to pickup the phone if it’s next to you without disturbing othersin short, i like it. One thing to keep in mind though (and that’s why i started writing this review) is that it doesn’t have a 2. 5mm slot for headphones (damn). I was annoyed by that since it was one of the specs i was looking for and i somehow assumed it’d have. Having said that, i’m keeping the phone as i liked its functionality and will cope with the headphones in another way, maybe with another headset.

    Cordless digital phone i had one of these before only one set so invested in another set because i needed both to connect i cant use the other one with it so its going spare but very good has a lot of different ring tones to choose from, but if you don’t have a baby “as it has a baby monitor” then you wont be using it.

    Very nice telephone, the only criticism i have is that the ring volume isn’t very loud. I love how it has an audible alert for voicemail so i don’t need to check the phone when comming home from work. Very easy to set up and use and the screen is a good size.

  8. Bought these to replace a set that were about seven years old. Worked straight out of the box and the biggest plus for us is that the contacts are shared automatically.

    Panasonic phone (kx-tgh222) very good purchase. . Phones are easy to setup, transferring contacts from old phone to new is a tiresome job but the phone(s) are performing very well so far. Very clear and volume is good.
