  • Corded & Cordless Phones both with Caller ID at a low price.

    May 1, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Package includes compatible corded AND cordless phones. Extensive easy to use Caller ID features.
    Cons: Differing features on base, handset. Corded phone angles fixed. No ring volume adjustment on cordless.

    Summary: This corded/cordless phone package has some really nice features that make it well worth the low price, but that same low price does reveal some negatives. As you can see in pictures, the package includes both a corded base unit and a 2.4GHz cordless ... read more

  • Combination corded and cordless phone set

    Aug 22, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sturdy design, numerous useful features and it performed as expected.
    Cons: The usual annoying power brick. No quick dial buttons.

    Summary: I bought this product as a replacement for an old circa 1989 telephone that finally reached its end. I decided on the dual handset phone as a way to "kill two birds with one stone" by getting the corded phone I prefer when doing business over the phone, ... read more

  • Not worth the money.

    Apr 4, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good deal if the battery lasts.
    Cons: NiCad battery doesn't last.

    Summary: I bought the phone a little over a year ago. For the price, it seemed like a good deal. I wanted a cordless phone but also needed a regular phone with a display - nothing too fancy. The sound on both the cordless and the base is good but at times ... read more

  • Lotsa bang for the buck!

    Pros: The intercom is a fantastic feature! Benefits of corded/cordless technology.
    Cons: Cannot change ringer type on base. Little customization available.

    Summary: When I received the phone after ordering it online from Canadian Tire, I was not sure what I would b ... read more

    Pros: Good-looking two-for-one bargain - corded and cordless phones with some useful features. Excellent speakerphone function.
    Cons: Confusing instruction manual complicates set-up; no date/time function on main phone.

    Summary: This VTech combo VT 2498 fitted our needs perfectly well, replacing my 12-year-old home office telep ... read more

  • Great deal for the money, unless it malfunctions...

    Mar 16, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good cordless sound, quality speakerphone function, great value
    Cons: No speed dial buttons on either phone - you must find stored numbers in directory.

    Summary: General Description: The Vtech 2498 is actually two phones in one: a speakerphone with a corded handset, and a separate 2.4ghz cordless phone. The cordless phone sits in its own charger base, which has a small footprint that fits without a problem in very ... read more

    Pros: Looks slick. Good to have cord and cordless.
    Cons: Buzz noise has developed in the cord hand set.

    Summary: When I first got the Vtech 2498 it was great. Looks nice, sounded great, and pretty easy to use. However about 2 weeks after I got the phone the corded hand set has gotten a buzz noise to it to where talking on it is not an option. The speaker option ... read more

  • Stay away from this phone!

    Rated Show
    Pros: Inexpensive and worked well for warranty period
    Cons: Cordless battery is poor quality, base LCD rapidly deteriorated.

    Summary: One month after the warranty expired and the LCD on the base is illegible due to rapidly dying pixels (started with one line of pixels 3 days ago). The cordless phone doesn't hold a charge for more than 10 minutes of talk time. Vtech customer support ... read more

  • what? what? I can't hear you!

    Rated Show
    Pros: easy to put phone numbers in the directory
    Cons: If the phone can not be used for communicating, what good is it?

    Summary: Main complaints: No one can hear me and I can not hear them. No use tuning up the volume, background noise just gets louder. The base phone is easily knocked off the hook. For me, that is enough to leave this review for people to read and ... read more

    Pros: Cheap. Base phone is OK.
    Cons: Remote phone has crummy reception, very short battery life, and no lit keys.

    Summary: I regretted buying this phone as soon as I got it home, but I was too stupid to take it back. The corded phone is actually OK. Good sound, nice display, good button layout. The cordless remote is junk. Uncomfortable to hold, no lighted buttons, ... read more
