  • Uniden TRU 8860-2 Cordless Phones ....I Can Hear You Now!

    Jan 4, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight, attractive, great sound clarity, lots of helpful features, expandable, Distinctive Ringtones!
    Cons: Nope, I just can't find any!

    Summary: Waiting for a package to arrive is crazy making, but it is also a lot of fun. When I knew that I had a gift sent to me, I could hardly contain myself. Every time I heard a truck go by I would be looking out the window. The mailman wasn’t safe on ... read more

    Pros: Sound quality rocks!
    Phonelist button!
    Longevity (5+ years)
    Voicemail inidcator LED!!!
    Cons: None that I can fault the phone itself for.

    Summary: After something like 5 years of use my relaible Uniden finally started having battery issues. The talk time was down to only 45 minutes.  I need better range in my tough environment. So I did not chose to buy new batteries. You can read my other ... read more

  • Nice Phone With Perks

    Apr 5, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sturdy, Loads of Features, Simplicity
    Cons: Flashing light

    Summary: Ordered these during a Woot! and so far I am really glad I did. They are refurbs, so I had some hesitation, but for the price I thought I'd give it a try. The two phones came in the same box with all of the pieces except for the belt clips (probably a ... read more

  • Best Phone EVAH

    Feb 12, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: easy setup, distinctive ringtones, very mobile, speakerphone
    Cons: headset purchased separately

    Summary: I received this phone as a gift and I would recommend it to anyone. The best feature of the phone is the speakerphone. At the touch of a button, you can have a mobile speakerphone at the tips of your fingers. I often set the phone down while performing ... read more

  • Uniden TRU-8860-2 Cordless Phone - pretty good for a cordless

    Aug 30, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price, Style, Ease of use, Clarity, and pretty good travel distance
    Cons: None yet

    Summary: After owning many a cordless phone I am most impressed with this one. I picked it up last week in a 3 handset pack, same model numbers, just an extra handset. My biggest concerns in a cordless phone are Clarity and Reception. This phone scores high ... read more

  • Love design but unsure of quality control

    Mar 23, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Smart design, bright display, smaller more comfortable handset
    Cons: base station maybe a bit too small (too light), no customizable ringers for base station

    Summary: I purchased this phone for my home office. I also use it with the Vonage service. It has just about every feature you will need and is nicely designed. The handsets are tight and don't "squeak". They also don't have that knobby little antenna sticking ... read more

  • Not Enough Phone Jacks? Wanna Go Broadband? These are the Phones for You!

    Feb 12, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Perfect if you are short on phone jacks or want to go Broadband. Tons of features.
    Cons: No real ones - these phones are REALLY cool!

    Summary: My husband has been looking into going to a Broadband/Internet phone provider (such as Vonage) for a little while now, but for some reason had been hesitant to make the transition. Epinions decided to give us a shove in the right direction when they ... read more

  • Uniden TRU-8860-2 an Excellent Expandable System!

    Jan 24, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Expandable without using additional phone jacks, clarity, ease of use.
    Cons: Range around appliances, needs more notice for low battery.

    Summary: New phones! Did I really need them? No, but I wasn't totally happy with my beloved Mickey Mouse cordless. Cute as can be, but not very practical. It was far too easy to accidentally hang up when my daughter tried to talk on it or when I tried ... read more

  • The Uniden TRU-8860-2 cordless phone system has excellent digital clarity.

    Jan 10, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sounds as if my family in England, are in the same room as me.
    Cons: The cost of caller I.D. to use the cute functions on these phones.

    Summary: I was really delighted to receive the Uniden Multi handset X10 cordless telephones, as a gift. It came by Fed Ex and I just had to see what was inside the package. It consisted of, 2 handsets, a base unit, a charger, 2 AC adapters, 2 ... read more

  • Excellent phone

    Sep 25, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: features and quality are excellent.
    Cons: Cons are not many and not big - see the details.

    Summary: I bought this phone set about a week ago after suffering from a couple of VTech phones for too long. The Uniden TRU8860 met almost all my expectations, all the important ones anyway. The phone comes in a variety of sets, either by itself (TRU8860) or in ... read more

  • An awesome phone

    Rated Show
    Pros: Distinctive rings, price, feel of the phone, clarity, ability to add multiple handsets
    Cons: None so far

    Summary: We've only had this phone for a couple of days, but we love it. This is the first phone we have had with distinctive rings. Now, when my father-in-law calls, we don't even have to look at the caller ID to decide to let the the answering machine pick-up ... read more

  • Buy 10 handsets - you can use 2 !!!

    Jan 6, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Apart from this unexpected defect, these phones are excellent.
    Cons: Uniden needs some serious rewording of the multi-set capability, and to learn some advertising ethics.

    Summary: The Features list (p. 2) says "10 Multi-Handset Expandability". The box says "the convenience of up to 10 handsets and charging cradles, all working in parallel with one base unit and only one phone jack". Buried on page 52 we are told "The phone ... read more

    Pros: looks good
    Cons: no range

    Summary: I bought this thing based on its sleek style. Big mistake. Sound quality is fine, but it has no range. I couldn't even walk to the other side of the house without reception breaking up. I ended up with a 2.4 ghz Panasonic for half the money (TG2420), ... read more

    Pros: Clarity, style, size.
    Cons: None found. Smallish buttons, I guess.

    Summary: I have tried other brands and always go back to Uniden. This phone is perfect. Perfect clarity, no antenna, 2 full featured handsets, etc. Very good buy. Oh...and don't forget to attach the belt clip. It helps when shouldering the phone! ... read more

    Pros: Small footprint, sound quality, intercom and baby monitor features
    Cons: Small buttons

    Summary: I was shopping for new cordless phones for both my house and my office and needed a 5.8 Ghz phone because of my wireless router. I toyed with the idea of getting a 2 line phone, but because of the reviews and the price did not go there. I found this ... read more

  • I got the 8860-2 for 69.99 at Costco

    Jun 6, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Inexpensive, easy to setup and use, great clarity, good range.
    Cons: None so far.

    Summary: That's right, both handsets already configured to the base unit for less than the price of one handset!!! I use it for my Vonage VOIP service. The clarity is amazing, better than my old 2.4 Ghz Siemens. I took out all the 2.4 Ghz stuff so as to not ... read more
