exactly what I was looking for. I saw an article in the local paper written on electronic products by a person with technology experience. I was enthused when I read about the blocking feature of this phone. The one actually featured was the one with blue tooth also. Not being interested in the blue tooth from home phone, the sales girl (Jessica) referenced me to the one I purchased which had the same blocking features. Once I received the phone I immediately programmed 15 numbers to block. I haven't been bothered since.
RE: Review from January 30, 2015. The KX-TCA430 headset does not say it is 'Bluetooth' so how can you criticize it for not being 'Bluetooth'? This is a corded headset. It connects to a 2.5mm headset jack in cordless or corded landline phones that, of course have the headset jack. The 'Bluetooth' on the KX-TGE260 phone is for connecting smartphones and 'Bluetooth' headsets. You can search for 'Bluetooth' headsets to find the right one for your phone(s).
Range extender. The extender works well. Our distant phone is now much clearer -- no more crackling and jumbled conversations. Easy to use -- just plug it in and it works. However, I would have preferred a device that plugged directly into an outlet, rather that having a cord, which makes it harder to position in our home.
Panasonic is always great. Bought these phones to replace our old Panasonic phones that we had for years. These are much brighter and easy to read. My wife and I are 70 or over and need good displays and these have them. They have call blocking and up to 150 numbers that was the main reason we got these. They have several functions that we will never use but the price was right. Better more than less. Only con is the text in the Operating Instructions is tiny and tons of codes. But with a magnifying glass and a little reading most question / problems have been solved. Love these phones. Do not hesitate to get you a set!
Great phone(s) KX-TGE234B. Upgraded from a 9 year old Panasonic set of 4 phones which have never given me a problem. I wanted something with a larger display and this phone set is the one I got. It is great, so much clearer, easier to read, and the overall features are amazing. And programming is as easy as can be. Great phone and a great buy directly from Panasonic. I looked at 4 other online stores and they averaged about $20 more for the set than I paid...and I got them shipped to me free. Great job Panasonic...keep it up.
PhonesetupWizard. I found the phone to be high quality but some operating instructions were confusing. 1 Setting customized ring tone for Home group on all phone. I set one phone but not other two 2 Setting and viewing Call Block numbers. This is one of the primary reasons I purchased this phone 3 Mixing instructions on 2 models not good I would like to see detail instructions for Items i and 2 without all the ifs and but
