  • Decent 2.4GHz dual-handset phone

    Jan 18, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good voice quality, two handset with one phone jack connection
    Cons: Slow and counterintuitive user interface, inflexible CID features

    Summary: I have been using the AT&T 2230 dual handset cordless phone for more than a year. I am generally happy with it, though it could use improvements in a few areas, especially the user interface. Basic description 2230 is a 2.4GHz ... read more

  • Perfect Expandable Cordless Phone - except for the Caller ID bug!!

    Jan 8, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Perfect, clear except for the Caller ID bug!
    Cons: Caller ID bug of not being able to add "1" to displayed number.

    Summary: In my search for a cordless phone with the following features, I thought this ATT 2322/2300/2230 was IT. - atleast two handsets - expandable to more. - NO answering system on base. - Caller ID (this was the drawback read below!) - 2.4ghz DSS ... read more

  • Decent performance, with some annoyance

    Jan 6, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Reasonable range, multiple handsets, caller ID
    Cons: Poor transmitted voice quality

    Summary: I purchased this phone set about a year and a half ago at Costco, and have been using it as the main household phone since then. The main feature guiding my decision was the brand name and the multiple-handset capability, as it prevented the need for ... read more

  • These phones are worth the money

    Mar 10, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Backlit, VERY good range, Clear reception and cool "auto hangup" feature, and battery life
    Cons: Too bad there is no answering service

    Summary: My mom bought a set of these and I just came home for spring break. They rock! The reception is excellent and at 2.4 Ghz I no longer hear the next door neighbors in a "linecross like" mixup. Also it has a feature to hangup/ kill call that makes it so the ... read more

  • Could be better

    Mar 3, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Shares Speed Dial
    Cons: Current Caller-ID disappears when you take a ringing phone off the base.

    Summary: I like the idea of 2 phones sharing a single base. I like the fact that this phone treats the 2 handsets as 1, so clearing the caller-id or adding speed dial occurs to both phones. I can't stand the fact that when the phone is ringing and ... read more

  • Clear calls whether inside or outside WOW!!!

    Feb 24, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great range, ONLY ONE JACK, Lightweight, Different Rings, Call between handsets
    Cons: Volume buttons on front of phone

    Summary: I did research a while back on getting a new phone for my house. It was desperately needed since our old Bell South cordless was getting ever so unreliable. We had it for quite a while and it may have had a little bit of time left with new battery and ... read more

  • poor quality

    Feb 17, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: inexpensive
    Cons: poorly made

    Summary: While this set is comparatively inexpensive, I'd strongly suggest staying away from them. After the first set that bought failed because people who I called could not hear anything when I spoke, I bought a second set that never ended up working together. ... read more

  • Bought last year.. looking for new relationship

    Jan 17, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Compact set, no wires for second phone, pretty clear reception, decent range.
    Cons: Display, Battery Life, Phone Features

    Summary: I'm officially divorcing my AT&T Phones. My biggest gripe is the battery time. The Panasonic I had before this purchase had a much longer battery time and it was several years old. I would have thought the battery technology would have been better. ... read more

  • Most aggravating phone ever...

    Jan 5, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Wireless!
    Cons: Broken...

    Summary: Uh, where to start? The menu system is horrible. I constantly dial out by accident, or don't dial out when I mean to. The caller ID does not show up until AFTER you answer. The "key lock" (required with small children) does not have a temporary ... read more

  • Good Phone except for the echo.

    Dec 18, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Dual hand set. Only one phone jack needed.
    Cons: Terrible echo effect.

    Summary: The dual hand set feature of the 2230 sold me. I really enjoyed the thought of not having to install another phone jack. I also liked the idea of the phones having a phone- book feature. The sound quality of the people on the line is very ... read more

  • Two Lemons for the price of One

    Nov 19, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Dual handset
    Cons: Poor sound quality, annoying intermittent screeching

    Summary: When I first bought this phone, I was quite pleased with my purchase. I got 2 handsets for the price of one. It was a relatively inexpensive phone that was made by the company that pioneered the telephone. Only after owning this phone for a ... read more

  • Don't buy this phone

    Nov 18, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice Display
    Cons: Poor battery life, mysterious noises, static, requires constant reset

    Summary: I had to double-check the model number of our phone after reading the other positive reviews, because we have had nothing but trouble with our phones. The static is terrible, the battery doesn't last for longer than a 10 minute conversation. On several ... read more

  • Took them back!

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Intercom system is great
    Cons: Terrible reception

    Summary: Very disappointed with the reception. Had a terrible echo. We bought the phones because our older cordless phones interfered with our baby monitor. The salesperson assured us we would not have that problem with these phones. The echo was so bad when ... read more

    Pros: cheap, lightweight
    Cons: poor quality, annoying sounds

    Summary: I have been disappointed with my ATT phones. The keypad is not lit, bummer at night. After 3 months they stopped working, bummer after 3 months. The memory function for speeddial is cumbersome so we did not use it. The directions were somewhat ... read more

  • Too Many Lemons

    Aug 17, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Dual handset; relatively inexpensive model
    Cons: Phones loose connection.

    Summary: This was my first purchase of a 2.4 GHZ. I liked the phone when it was working. Frequently the phone goes into "Out of Service". The manufacturer is aware of this and suggests to unplug the base model, wait a few seconds and plug it back ... read more

  • The best cordless phone(s) on the market

    Jul 30, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sound, Feels and Looks good, Nicely built
    Cons: May be a bit expensive for some people

    Summary: Few cordless phones I've owned have been as well designed and manufactured as the AT&T 2230 dual handset. I'm a little obsessive when it comes to the "touch" of consumer products, and if something doesn't feel quite right, or cheap, I don't buy it. In ... read more

  • Good quality, good price.

    Jun 24, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Dual handsets, caller id with call wtg.
    Cons: The keys are not lit.

    Summary: I recently spent twice as much on a Panasonic comparable phone that I returned because it had poor sound and both handset's broke. I was reluctant about purchasing another dual handset 2.4 GHz digital phone, but thought I would give this one a try. I'm ... read more

  • Where's the Antenna?

    Jun 7, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Clarity, Range, Headset compatible
    Cons: No features on base

    Summary: I got the AT&T phone after my Vtech 900 digital gave out. I read many reviews and information on 2.4 Mhz phones claiming their range isn't any farther than the 900 Mhz phones, under the same power and conditions. Which I believe is true but phone ... read more

  • Great Value - 2 for 1 Phones (FOR THE SHORT TERM)

    Apr 16, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good sound quality, excellent flexibility
    Cons: Caller ID implementation, menus, POOR RELIABILITY

    Summary: UPDATE - 3/17/03 Sad to say that these phones that I initially reviewed so positively would crash and burn so soon. The problem appears to be that the main cradle no longer charges the handsets, despite that the "charging" light comes on to ... read more

  • Hello, Hello?

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: clean sound
    Cons: none that I have found

    Summary: I have tried cordless phone after cordless phone, and never really been happy. The AT&T 2.4 GHZ has the cleanest, and clearest sound I have heard yet. The range is great also. I can walk all the way to my mailbox, and still carry on a ... read more
