Mostly good, however whilst on current call, 2nd incoming caller cuts out 1st. Haven't received a reply to fix this problem.
Has good hard of hearing Boost button to help in that regard
Nothing but trouble
Since buying this for my business a month or so ago it's been playing up more than working. 'Out of range' and actually not allowing incoming phone calls because of it means a loss of business to me. Googling the issue to see it it is a quick fix made me realise it's a very common problem and probably a defect of the phone!? Not impressed. I'll be steering clear of this brand when I purchase another to replace this!!!
Does what it says on the box
Needed an easy to use handset for an elderly grandparent suffering from dementia and almost deaf so had to be very easy to use. Very happy with the purchase as the device is sturdy, easy to hear and notice when it rings and sound is very good. Yes it is chunky but for someone with dementia and visual impairments it is just what is needed. Happy to recommend
Its good enough to us. We are pensionaer and understand and use this phon succesful.
That phon working succesful for us. We are happy with them. Working good. Easy to handle ecspecily for older People. Phonbook easy to use to.
Das Telefon wirkt gut. Wir sind damit zufrieden. Ist gut zu bedienen speziell für aeltere menschen mit seh-und hoerproblemen. Also können wir es bestens weiter empfehlen.
Purchased sse35 after many years of happy service from a SSE27. The difference is astounding. The SSE35 declares itself "out of range" at about 15m from the base station (same location as previous base station) Basically the phone transmission range is about 1/4 of the previous model and cant be used outside the house. Really not suitable given we live on acreage. Unfortunately it has taken a couple of months to determine that it was not "user error", but the nature of the product. Unbelievable!
The phone works perfectly on outwards calls but it is impossible to receive a call or a message.
The manual is incomprehensible and it is impossible to get it to work properly, despite many attempts.
On that basis, it has to be classified as not fit for purpose and therefore junk.
How to put the ringer on
Good big letters for oder generation. Nice and loud with the booster function. Very happy with the phone.
Its good for the older generation, but they cannot unfortunately ring the phonebook selections because theres too
many steps to do that. The price was in relation to the functions of the phone ok.
Have trouble with volume, hardly hear caller. Phone rings pick up to answer goes straight to leave message. When going back to point of purchase they do not want to help, they tell you only 1 month warranty with them,Won't refund your money. Don't buy, do not buy this Product.
The positive is that the sound quality is generally good.
The main negative is that phonebook access — the most used function by me — is very poorly designed. It takes 6 key presses to bring up the stored list of numbers in the phonebook. This is unacceptable and I find it hard to believe that a company could design something so badly. The previous model, the SSE25, was much better in this respect in that it had a dedicated phonebook button. I also notice a lag during this 6 key press sequence, suggesting that Uniden have skimped on processi...ng power in order to save money. Another problem is that the phone ringer on the main base is very loud compared to the ringer on the handset. Thus if the handset is off the base, it is very hard to locate the handset by sound since all you can hear is the base.
No Speed dial
Bought the phone for elderly parent who is hearing impaired. No problems so far... is able to hear clearly without wearing hearing aids. However... to make ph calls easier to make...discovered there is NO SPEED DIAL!! The process to locate the stored ph number to make a call is so labour intensive for the elderly...you would be quicker to put the number in yourself. This process needs to be easier for the elderly...such a great ph in other aspects... but seriously needs SPEED DIALING!!

We needed to replace our Panafax UF-S2 landline phone that had served us well for many years, but was now prone to "dropping in and out " during conversations. The XDECT SSE35 was identified by the Harvey Norman salesman, as being a top seller. Not only was the phone competitively priced, it has the added benefit of being user friendly for those experiencing visual and hearing difficulties
Our first Cordless Phone we are still learning its capabilities, and have had no recharging issues to date. The Uniden takes up far less space than the ...
Agree that the phone makes an echo - it seems to be trying to minimize background noise aggressively and ends up cutting the volume to the headset to compensate for the noise and feedback being generated by the mouth piece.
Basically if you try and talk at same time as other caller - the head piece decreases in volume significantly - which defeats the purpose of this phone being for hearing impaired. Basically - you and the other caller stop talking and then start saying "what did you say?"
Menu system is also a bit iffy with too many key...presses to get to a set dial memories and some features are weird like the clear phone dial memory is in a different menu to the add entries menu. Big numbers and bright display are brilliant, pity the actual phone audio sucks.
I have a hearing impairment this is the only brand phone I can hear on. I have had this model for a while now, I have had no problems with it, I find it easy to use, its great having the announce caller feature, I no longer answer annoying overseas telemarketing calls. I find it easy to use and I would buy again if I needed to. I am in process of purchasing one for my mother as she also has hearing problems.
