Excellent extended handsfree phone system

published

Have used the R055 over four years, and highly recommend it. I have two landline numbers in my home (one personal, one business) and last week converted them to nbn service. Still running the Uniden system (two lines on each handset). R055 can only manage six repeater/chargers so my seventh sits as a "dumb" charger, not extending the radio range. The seventh handset works fine. I haven't found out how many handsets it can support but at least that many. Never had interference with wifi or garage remotes or microwave or anything.
Only negative is that LCD screen display on the handset is dim. But in ordinary use I don't look at the screen much anyway.

Handset Font

published

For those who have troubles with their vision - this phone may be a challenge for you. The Font is too condensed on the handset screen and this makes it very difficult to see/use. As I have not fully tested out the other features of the phone and handset, I am unable to comment on the performance.

useful but bad audio

published

We purchased this model because was the only one allowing 2 phone line, which we really need, it is all fine and working but the quality of the audio is really bad, almost distorted ! In the review we read on choice magazin the audio was not rated very good, but I did not aspected so bad.

Excellent in all areas

published

Read plenty of reviews for cordless phones and made decision to buy the Uniden R055. So glad I did. Goes the distance I needed for the Granny flat (100 m) plus useful intercom. No interference with WIFI , no noise, excellent clear reception and excellent recording on answering machine. Shop around for the best price. CHOICE tested a number of phones and it came as best buy.
Distance it covers with no static.
Doesn't work in a blackout.

Big One Big Reception

published

Physically a quite chunky phone in dark silver-greyish colour. Casing is all plastic but solid quality. Great reception area up to 100 meter line of sight. Working outside the house reception is still amazing. This phone provides 2 line plugs hence 2 answering machines to operate the lines independently. It's a reliable phone!
Simple to operate and always great reception. Big buttons!
Monochrome display is cheapish and hard to read in low light. Only 12h clock and answering machine got no playback volume adjust.

Uniden XDECT R055+1 as far as I know is used for land line telephone, has not much to do with NBN .

Bob_WA

Short answer is yes, nbn is no problem for the R055. I run two landlines on it.
But to explain further, the question really is whether the R055 base unit is compatible with your broadband modem. I use a Sagem Optus F@ST 3864 on hybrid fibre connection. The Sagem modem has two RJ11 telephone ports, but Optus only configure one. So my two landlines need two modems that sit side by side and work off a tee joiner to the HFC cable.
