Just got back from Radio Shack...
Posted by: RAMd®d

...and picked up that Radio Shack/Uniden phone Newt was talkin' bout.

It was $99.95 on sale, and the $79.95 phone had no extra handset.

So I went for the upgrade, flaming Newt for the bad intel.

But at the register in rang up for $79.95, so I was a happy camper. If the Uniden branded extra handsets are indeed compatible, I'll get the little BT clamshell cellphone lookalike.

Thanks, Newt!

Rammie! I knew you wouldn't be able to stay away for long ;)

And how could you have so little faith in Deal Guru Newt. You should know better.

Really? Send owc-admin a PM.

I can't imagine why it would do that. Probably because you took so long to get here. :}

Rammie, maybe double entendre requires a double log-in.

Funny because I too just got home from Radio Shack with one. I also got the wagon of batteries (12 AA, 12 AAA) for $10.99

I am charging the handsets right now and I have just started to read the 70 page manual.

I checked the range and they are crystal clear in my house.

I am also about to buy my DVP642 from amazon.


Thanks for the posts Newt.

As I recall. . .some stores didn't have the real sales price listed but it would ring up at the register correctly.


Enjoy the phone. . .I bit too and ordered the 2 for 1 handset from Officemax also.

It was confirmed from multiple sources that the Uniden handsets work. . .will check when I can.

What IS going on with Radio Shack's price labeling? I went to pick up the $80AR DVD recorder last night, and nowhere -- not on the shelf, not in the sale flyer -- was there any mention of the $50 rebate. The salesman had to consult with the computer to see that it was there. I think they'd sell a lot more of these things if people actually knew that they could get $50 back...

For the record, the phones are pretty nice. Not quite corded quality, and even the LOW volume settings are a little too loud for my taste.

But they're well worth the money. I like the fact that I can update the phone book and check the answering machine from any phone. Custom ringers for the callers is nice, though the tones and tunes are a bit crude.

But a great deal, and I'll give the Costco Panasonic standalones to a friend whose girls need their own phones. LOL.

Mom and Dad will love me.

Gutie, protocol duly noted.

Also, no log in problems from Win98/Netscape.

WTF?

Now, to check out Newt's post about the Uniden handsets.

I hope I have *some* money left for MWSF!
