Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

        Recently, my chordless phone (Uniden Dect 6.0) telephone has been giving me some problems.  While I can hear the party on the other end and the party can hear me just fine, I am experiencing a slight echo or reverberation of my own voice whenever I speak.  Needless to say, it is a strange experience using this phone when having a conversation with someone.  Additionally, I also notice the red light for charging only blinks red when it is put back onto the dock for charging when it use to stay a steady red  Realizing it is likely a problem with the phone itself, I believe my best option at this point is to replace this chordless phone with another one.  With that said, I am interested in a chordless phone which has CallerID in addition to an Answering Machine Service that can be purchased online.

        Any submitted link or links given to this search will be greatly appreciated.  

         Thank you

         George

Make sure the base is away from other electronics - you may be getting some interference causing the echo.

I would try a new battery if you can find one.  That is the only thing I have ever had go bad with my phones.

I have three different cordless phones on my line (wife with mobility problems).  Two amplified handsets and a four station Panasonic phone.  All work good with my land line.

There are several quality phones out there.  I would make a list of addition features and look at the top brands for price and features.

I like my land line because the power comes from the telephone company.  My daughter dropped her land line using only a cell phone.  I also have a cell phone for when I am away from home.

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

              Thanks so much for the link.  The prices I am seeing for the Uniden Dect 6.0 chordless phone look to be a bit steep.   Do you have some other recommendations for chordless phones to possibly check out?

Hello

          I have been thinking more carefully about my needs and reached this conclusion.  If I can get just one handset which supports CallerID and Voice Mail, that should be sufficient.  The only reason I brought up the interest of an answering machine is because I want to make sure I get any missed messages when I am away.  

          At any rate, if everyone could look into any online purchase link or links for a telephone handset which supports CallerID and Voice Mail, it will be greatly appreciated.  

           Thank you

It sounds like you may like the model you have but the prices from the above website were a little high for one handset.
Here are the same ones which have the answering machine and callerID, etc.

These are "new" ones from trusted sellers:

$25 + $5 shipping saves you 25% from the $39 phone from the website above and I'm sure that website will charge for shipping, so you basically save at least 25% with this NEW one on Ebay.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Uniden-Digital-Answering-System-DECT-6-0-With-Caller-Announce-D3097-/261387228418?pt=US_Cordless_Telephones_Handsets&hash=item3cdbe49502#

This one is $25 with free shipping saving you 37.5% vs. factory outlet store.

Want to save 50% then this one is $19.99 and free shipping:

And down the bottom of the page for some brand new ones under $15.
