  • AT&T 2256 is junk

    Oct 15, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Common features in most cordless phones
    Cons: Power goes out, so does phone. Flaws explained in the review.

    Summary: We purchased our AT&T 2256 system from Sam's Club. It was a packaged deal, including both phones. We paid approx. $89.00 for it just about a year and are ready to purchase a new phone. We don't typically buy home telephone systems too often because ... read more

  • Not a Good Choice

    Nov 19, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice design with compact phone and many useful features
    Cons: Impossible keypad forces you to retype your phone number several times to get it right.

    Summary: We bought the AT&T for our home business. It has an answering machine with caller ID display, three mailboxes and an extra handset. When we heard our answering message it was less than desirable. It made our business sound a little "cheap". The intercom ... read more

    Pros: Great speaker phone, screen, menu system.
    Cons: Answering machine can only be accessed via the base.

    Summary: This is a great phone. I love the great quality speaker-phone. People usually can't tell. It has various rings you can setup differently for each phone. You can also assign a custom name to each phone. The back light on the phone works also works good. ... read more

    Cons: Doesn't last long

    Pros: Good sound quality Several ring tones
    Cons: Cannot conference call Caller id hard to read No memory dialing

    Summary: I recently bought an AT&T 2256 and I wish I had not have. There are two phones, but they cannot be both used at the same time for conferencing. Calls can be transferred but not shared. Why would anybody build a phone like that? Also I do not like ... read more

    Pros: good range, good speakerphone
    Cons: numbers stick,low volume, can't set messages as not listened to

    Summary: This is the 3rd set of these phones that I have had. ATT replaced them because the keypads all stick or activate numbers twice. Each time problem occurred after just over 1 year. ATT only warranties replacements for 3 months. I have had 6 handsets, all ... read more
