  • Uniden DXAI5588-2 Twin Cordless Phone: The word “crappy” comes to mind

    Mar 28, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap, won't erase messages when the power goes out
    Cons: Static, illogical controls, static . . . did I mention static?

    Summary: Why, oh why? I know what you’re thinking, “Scott, you’re on epinions all the time. Why, oh why did you buy this phone despite the eleven previous reviewer’s glowing ratings?” Well, we all make mistakes sometimes. Mine was to ... read more

  • Not Fancy but takes alot of abuse

    Jul 22, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Durable..very durable..large buttons
    Cons: standard ringers. performs like a 2.4 ghz system

    Summary: We purchased this phone set several years ago from Sams wholesale for around 39.99. Though this model lacks any real modern features it is able to withstand extensive abuse. We have dropped one of the phones in the bathtub, off a balcony and ran over the ... read more

    Pros: Great features
    Cons: Backlight does not stay on long and Caller ID is hard to read

    Summary: Just a quick review on this one. I am absolutely shocked at the reviews here! I guess I was lucky and got one of the "good" ones. I have had this phone since November 2004 and used it for both home, and a home-based business. I bought it because the ... read more

    Pros: Comes with an answering machine and 2 phones
    Cons: You cant hear nothing but static no matter what you do.

    Summary: This phone started out working fairly good. but it didn't take long before it went to crap. it has lots of static. The people on the other end can not hear you and you cant hear them because the phone has so much static. it just creates a lot of ... read more

  • Bottom Dollar Means Bottom Quality

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, two handsets, built in Caller ID and answering machine. Easy interface.
    Cons: Cheap, as in quality. Static, poor outgoing voice quality/volume. Long initial charge time.

    Summary: My wife and I picked up this phone at Target when we were looking to replace our separate cordless 900MHz phone and answering machine with a new, single combo cordless phone/answering system. We figured we could also add an extra phone to her office, as ... read more

    Pros: Compact, looks good, good price
    Cons: Poor sound quality, poor range, doesnt work.

    Summary: OK, OK, I know. I should have read Epinions first before purchasing these phones at Target. It seemed like such a good deal at the time. I needed two new cordless phones and an answering machine and these fit the bill, and they were for a good price. ... read more

  • What we have here is a failure to communicate

    Feb 25, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The large buttons were a plus.
    Cons: The outside of the box should state that the phone needs special requirements for placement.

    Summary: I was warned to avoid Uniden phones by someone who is fairly electronically astute however most of the phones today have little teeny buttons and my hamfisted husband has an impossible time dialing out. The DXAI5588 has larger buttons so, wild woman ... read more

    Pros: None for me
    Cons: Not worth a crap!

    Summary: Im another should have read the reviews on this so called phone. On the plus side it does have a good voice mail system. And thats all. Bought to replace a Uniden 2.4 so we could have built in answering machine and Caller ID. I have no idea how this ... read more

    Pros: The answering machine actually works and the handsets make handy paperweights!
    Cons: Your phone conversations sound like someone is unwrapping cellophane inside your inner ear.

    Summary: I was actually on Epinions searching for a phone to replace this Uniden unit. I wish I had started by looking here before I bought the Uniden. THE STATIC IS MADDENING AND VERY LOUD! You could, of course, stand 13cm from the base and then it ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: Static, no conferencing, headset created more static.

    Summary: I've owned Uniden phones for the past twelve years and until now have always had good things to say about them. The packaging and documentation are even poor quality. Aside from the static, which rendered the phones useless, you cannot use both handsets ... read more

    Pros: 2 handsets, answering machine, call screening, and easy to function.
    Cons: Wish the backlight was orange instead of green.

    Summary: This model is an awesome phone. I can get out to my mail box and over to my neighbors house. Static free for me. This is one of the better 5.8 ghz phones I've owned. A little FYI for everyone 5.8 ghz is the frequency not the strength if you have static ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: I don't know where to start

    Summary: Not only is there more static than ever, you cannot turn the volume loud enough to hear over the static. Whenever telemarketers call and refuse to leave a message, it causes the phone to stay busy all day long, completely eliminating the point of an ... read more

    Pros: 2 handsets, no static.
    Cons: Customer service is non-existant

    Summary: Phone worked ok for a year. The base stopped working after a big storm (perhaps fried). I called customer service and they said to send it in at our expense. Did that, got a note from them saying I needed to call. I called, it's $43.00 to fix it (it ... read more

    Pros: Really cannot think of any. It's shiny silver.
    Cons: Static, static, static, static, static, static.

    Summary: Wow, this phone sucks. I bought this model because it was cheap at BJ's wholesale club. It's absolutely worthless due to the static and poor reception. I can't wait to throw it out. In fact, rather than just pitching it in the trash, I'm going to ... read more

    Pros: Price Was Right. Good looks
    Cons: Poor/ Very Poor Range Poor / no customer service.

    Summary: I bought this unit at Sams Club to replace an aging Uniden unit I had had for a couple of years. I thought going to a newer unit with the new 5.8 GHZ system would be quite the upgrade. Boy was I mistaken. I could barley use it more then 1 room away from ... read more
