Very poor phone system
Very low volume, only 6 rings maximum before the answer machine switches on. The most annoying thing is you can't turn off remote access code after 10 rings when a message cuts the caller off.Terrible instructions, not even a booklet just a sheet of paper

We have had the Vtech 17550 cordless phone for 7 months. It is so bad we have now thrown it away. There are five deficiencies two major and three less important ones. First, the handset volume is very low. There is a 'Volume Boost' button that makes little or no difference. I had to resort to putting it on speaker and holding the phone to my ear to hear properly. Second, the number of rings before it goes to voicemail can be adjusted; to a maximum of six. That gives you about 13 seconds to get to the phone. Otherwise, you miss the call. Ridicul...ous. Moving on to the minor defects. Third, the phone book function is incredibly slow. Fourth, the call log gives you a list of incoming calls, but not outgoing calls. Yes, you can check outgoing calls with the redial function but to me, a call log should log all calls – incoming, outgoing and missed calls. Finally, the missed call list can be checked but you cannot delete individual calls. It is either delete all or none.
Works OK but wall mounting appearance shocking.
Had to replace our wall mounted home phone due to NBN being installed and wanted the additional two hansets for around the house. Advertising does not show the wall mounted appearance (deliberately ???) as it has a base mount that extends above and below the unit and is a real shocker. Works OK so shifted the main unit to the garage and left the other two bench units in the house.
The Perfect Phone to "Block" Nusiance Telemarketers!!
Finally found the perfect phone to BLOCK those nasty pieces of work "telemarketers" !!!! So easy to use!! Just block and no more calls from them!! So pleased with this phone, even thinking of buying another one for the kitchen!! Bought mine at JB Hi-Fi... Excellent phone!! ... Love the colour of the blue screen too!!
Bought from Kmart. Lasted 4 days.
Would ring, but no answer, either in or out calls. I complained to our telco, who were most helpful.
Finally deduced the phone was faulty.
At least the Shop had the decency to refund the purchase price.
A lot of inconvenience caused, and time wasted.
Nice phone - but screen way too small
We picked this phone because it looked has all the features we needed and looked good on the website ( VTech's & BigW's ), but you can't find anywhere about the screen
Pro's - the price $68 at Big W
- easy to use
- looks good
- blue-tooth - so you can share your mobile contacts
Con's - the sceen size 1.8" ! - in this day and age when our mobile phones are 4.5" +
- because the screen is small its hard to read
- can't change the back light
Our old panasonic phone ( 7 years old ) has a 2" screen - the only reason that we where going to replace it with a phone with blue-tooth to connect with our mobiles. ...
Questions & Answers
When answering a call on my tech 7550 I can hear caller but they can’t hear me, dead air from their end. Just wondering how to fix it, does it need new batteries?
My Vtech 17550 keeps saying on screen "New Voicemail message" (which is different from when it USE TO say ' New message') I select "play messages" and I have none... so then I have to go through menu and select 'Clear voicemail'. Why does this keep happening? Seems to be after every ANSWERED incoming call now even when I have picked up immediately and there are no messages. Help?!
I have tried everything to unpair two mobile phones but one still rings when the vtech rings. Please help!!
