I bought this system as a replacement largely because we were converting to the NBN and I had no means of providing a second phone on the first floor through NBN. I was also looking for a phone system with extended range as we have a fairly large house.Read more phones via bluetooth and they will then be answerable on the Uniden phone. This is a really good as it means you can leave your mobile phone wherever you like in the house and provided you take one of the uniden extensions wherever you are, you can answer the mobile - no more hunting for that ringing phone! And you can connect up to 4 mobile phones and the 5135 will tell you which phone is actually ringing. There are privacy features on the system too so that only certain people can answer certain phones if you want that sort of functionality.
The Bluetooth mobile function will continue to work even if there is no landline connected, so this too is a good feature. The only thing I have found - and the only thing in fact stopping me giving this phone 5 stars - is that the Bluetooth occasionally seems to not go in sync with the mobile when coming back into the house from being out somewhere and I have yet to work this one out. The only way that seems to work is for me to delete the pairing and re-pair the phone with the mobile. I consider this a minor issue.
The clarity of the sound is incredible and the hands-free function of the phones also works really well.
The extended range of the 5135 is also great - I can very easily get a signal anywhere in my property - backyard or front, around the pool etc - and even a fair way down the road. It has excellent range.
I have been very happy with this phone. Highly recommended.
I have had Uniden products before and they have never let me down so I figured another one would have to be good, and I was right!
The system was really easy to set up and it plugged into my NBN modem easily.
The 5135 features a few really nifty ideas - for example you can connect your mobile...
