  • Uniden DXI5586-2 5.8GHZ Twin 1-Line Cordless Phone Review

    Jul 21, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It was a gift, 2 handsets
    Cons: Horrible customer service, product does not work properly after a short time

    Summary: We recieved these phones as a gift for Christmas a year or 2 ago, and we probably didn't really need them.  The only reason we use a cordless phone pretty much is to use the caller ID feature, which our regular phone does not have.  Caller ID ... read more

  • Not worth the bargain price

    Dec 16, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: cheap, 2 handsets
    Cons: disconnects mid-call, interference from neighbors cordless phones, only 1 hand-set can be used at once

    Summary: I have had problems with Uniden phones before, so I should not have been so easily seduced by the low price. I have had this phone for a couple of years now and if it weren't for the fact I rarely use my house phone, it would have been replaced a long ... read more

  • Good phone for a great price

    Sep 16, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good reception at distances, in expensive, Lightweight, speed dial entry, simple setup.
    Cons: Battery heats up when left in cradle, seperate talk and end buttons.

    Summary: My old cordless phone with a second base decided to die on me one day. After fruitlessly trying to determine what the problem was, I decided that I needed to get a new phone set. I had a 2.4 ghz phone, which worked very well for the three years I owned ... read more

  • Flimsy junk

    Sep 10, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Relatively cheap.
    Cons: Cheap -- you get what you pay for.

    Summary: We were attracted to this unit because it offered a second handset & charger PLUS 5.8 GHz technology for only a little more than the price of a single unit setup. Every piece of this setup feels flimsy, like a toy. At first, both handsets charged and ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: No range, static, short battery life. Shall I go on......

    Summary: We have had this phone for about 6 months. Terrible phone. Two people can't even talk on the 2 phone provided at the same time on an outside call. Unbelievable. Get static at 20 feet away from the base.I can't even go outside and use it. Real junk. I ... read more

    Pros: cheap
    Cons: cheap

    Summary: I bought this phone about a year ago and have put up with it since. I am finally purchasing a new phone! Uniden is a company known for great products and generally that is true, unfortunately it is not true here. The second phone that came with the ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: All, No Range, Static 10 ft from base!

    Summary: My 15 yr old sanyo 900mz had better range and sound! This phone should be taken off market! Do not confuse thier greatness in Cbs with phones... it is not ... read more

    Pros: nice compact base
    Cons: no range, unexplained dropped calls, lots of static

    Summary: I bought this set of phones after not having a landline for over 3 years. After using these, I am almost ready to go back to cell phones only! Even my ancient Lucent cordless phone had a better range and better reception. These phones have lots of ... read more

  • There are better phones

    Pros: Affordable
    Cons: poor quality

    Summary: I bought this set because I thought my previous cordless phone was failing on me. I thought it was a good price for a 5.8ghz set. As soon as I charged it and used it for the first time, I hated it. I have noticed that if you don't have your ear ... read more

  • Tele Phon - NOT!

    Oct 17, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Spiffy case, good next to DSL modem and Wi-fi
    Cons: Battery heats up, only one handset works at a time, can't hear, drops calls

    Summary: The point of a Tele Phone is to be able to talk from a distance. These units miss this basic point. They do have a spiffy case, are easy to install and they do great next to a DSL modem with Wi-fi router. But only one handset can be active at once, ... read more

  • Twenty foot range

    Jul 16, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: The phone looks attractive.
    Cons: Pathetic range, 20' maximum.

    Summary: We bought this phone to replace our old Panasonic. This Uniden has been a big disappointment. When you get around 20 feet from the base you start getting a lot of static. We thought that we'd return the phone to Uniden factory direct from where it was ... read more

    Pros: easy to program and manipulate
    Cons: static calls

    Summary: I paid $50 for this phone at Walmart. I had the same static issues that other reviewers have had, with the 2nd handset. I returned this phone for the Uniden UCT758 at Costco, $70 for 3 handsets and an answering ... read more

  • Awful Range

    Pros: Good sound quality when in (close) range of the base station. Good size/feel. Small antenna.
    Cons: Range, range, range.

    Summary: I bought theses phones for my father last year. I hooked them up in his house and the signal would deteriorate in less than 50 feet. I thought there might be some interference in his house, so I tried them in my apartment and I get the same result. If I ... read more

  • Too much static!

    Pros: Multiple handsets, call-waiting caller id, single phone line requirement.
    Cons: Static during phone calls.

    Summary: I gave this phone to a friend as a gift and from the first time we got it setup, there was constant static on each call. At first it was annoying for my friend but she "learned" to ignore it. Overall, the phone is pretty cool but the constant static is ... read more

  • Not what I was hoping for.

    Pros: Inexpensive for two 5.8 mhz chordless phones.
    Cons: Static on the second phone which doesn't use a hard wired phone line.

    Summary: I purchased this item at Target for $54.00. I was concerned once I opened the box and realized that the second hand set didn't need a phone line. Setup was very simple, put in batteries, plug in cables, let charge and do a quick sync with the 2nd set and ... read more

  • Poor Reception

    Pros: Lots of features, dial handsets, good form, big display.
    Cons: Dismal reception.

    Summary: Bought this phone to replace an old 900 mHz Sony that finally died. Got it at Target for only $44 and figured "how can we go wrong?". It certainly is a cool looking phone, and it has a nice big display and many features. It is remarkably annoying that ... read more
