Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Dual alarms! Large clock LCD. Phone works well.

Cons:The dumb zip code feature. Harder than most to master the alarm mode settings.

The Bottom Line: Overall I think this is a good alarm/cordless phone as long as you don't mind entering in zip codes often.


Southwestern Bell Freedom Phone
2.4 Ghz Clock Radio Cordless Telephone with Call Waiting Caller ID


I purchased this phone to replace a broken alarm clock/radio/phone we had in our bedroom for many years. I specifically purchased this phone because of the Southwestern Bell name & the features it offered. I will discuss the features now & my personal opinions afterwards.

FEATURES

~~ This is a fairly small and compact phone that should fit even the smallest of nightstands.

~~ 2.4 Ghz for added privacy & range.

~~ Large clock face with minimal buttons (which is good if you wake up & are as groggy & crabby as myself).

~~ Caller ID feature that shows name & number on BOTH face of the clock and the handset of the phone.

~~ Store up to 64 names in the Caller ID feature before it deletes the oldest number to make room for the newer one.

~~ Backlit of the face of the clock can be purchased in green or orange.

~~ Dual alarm times can be kept & are independent of each other. This includes separate on/off buttons and whether you prefer to be woken by the buzzer or radio.

~~ Snooze button.

~~ Speaker button, which only works for answering a phone call or you can put it on speakerphone once you’ve made you call. You CANNOT put the speakerphone on & then dial the number.

~~ Pager, in case you lose your phone a lot, like myself.

~~ LED light blinks on phone when you have missed a call.

~~ Fully programmable handset so you can program number in.

~~ Option to turn off backlight.

~~ Option to turn off ringer.

~~ Option to change tone/pulse.

~~ Battery Backup which is essential during a power failure.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX

You’ll receive the following…

Base Unit
Long Telephone Line Cord
Handset with Rechargeable Battery
Quick Installation Guide
DC Adapter with Cord
Owner’s Manual

HOW THE FEATURES WORK

With this phone/radio you’ll be able to set the area code to make it easier for the Redial Feature. (see my opinion on this below)

You’ll have the option of the following languages: English, French or Spanish.

The contrast of the handset is controllable & very easy to change. The contrast of the backlight on the radio is also very easy to change with just one button.

The phone is equipped with a Digital Security System to prevent other cordless phones from being dialed on your line.

You’ll have 40 operating Channels and the phone will automatically search and select the clearest channel when you pick up the handset and press the talk button. You can also change the channel during a call if you feel you need a cleaner channel.

The phone also has an option for a headset jack which you’d have to purchase separately.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS Southwestern Bell Freedom Phone
2.4 Ghz Clock Radio Cordless Telephone with Call Waiting Caller ID


The dual alarm clock features are unbeatable in my opinion. Once you have the alarm times set (if you & your better half get up at different times) you are set to go. No longer will you have to “wake up” enough to be able to function the alarm to reset it at a later time, only to find you’ve set it for PM instead of AM and wake up 2 hours late.

Notice I say ONCE YOU HAVE THE ALARM TIMES SET because I find it truly annoying to get the mode of the alarm changed in both times. It usually takes me about 10 minutes to get the right combination of buttons going. I think someone was asleep at the controls when they decided on how we were to set the alarm modes! Perhaps if they had a better alarm clock themselves…..

WHAT I WOULD CHANGE IF I COULD

~~ I’d forget about adding the zip code as mentioned above… when someone calls & you want to return the call and they happen to be in the same area code it will NOT dial their area code. I believe this function might work in some areas of the country, but not in ours. We have to dial the area code whether they live in another state or next door. So, this feature causes me a lot of work to add the area code every time I return a call.

~~ Make it easier for poor souls like me to change the alarm mode!
