Our take on the Panasonic KX-TG6700B

by Ralph Graves
Panasonic

Panasonic's KX-TG6700B two-line expandable phone system gives you all the call-managing options you need for your growing household or small business. The base unit comes with a single cordless handset, and you can add up to seven more cordless handsets for additional rooms.

The handset and base both have their own keypads, as well as built-in speakerphones for added convenience. The digital answering system holds up to an hour of messages, and the 50-entry directory gives you easy access to your frequently dialed numbers. You can even do four-way conferencing between two handsets and both of the outside lines.

Should I get a 2.4 GHz or a 5.8 GHz phone?
Both 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz phones give you clear reception and plenty of wireless range for most homes and small businesses. However, if you have a Wi-Fi® computer network on the premises, then a 2.4 GHz phone can interfere with your PC's connection because it operates in the same frequency range. A 5.8 GHz phone uses a higher frequency range to avoid this interference, making it a better choice for folks with wireless networks.

Telephone Features

5.8 GHz Expandable Cordless System: The KX-TG6700B 5.8 GHz digital cordless phone operates in the frequency range between 5.76 GHz and 5.84 GHz, which provides excellent range, sound quality and security. Plus, it won't interfere with Wi-Fi home networking devices, which operate in the 2.4 GHz range. This Frequency Hopping Digital Spread Spectrum (FHSS) system randomly changes transmission frequency several times per second without causing crosstalk. FHSS technology also enhances security due to the changing of frequencies. You can add up to 7 additional KX-TGA670B cordless handsets, item number 133XTG670B.

Two Line Operation: Two phone lines can be connected to this unit. For convenience, you can connect both lines independently using two single-line telephone cords, or connect both lines using a two-line telephone cord. Both types of telephone cords are included with the phone. You can make a conference calls using the two outside lines with up to 2 handsets, or put one call on hold while you take or make a call on the other line.

Voice Enhancer: Voice Enhancer technology helps clarify and improve sound reception, creating a natural-sounding voice that is easy to hear and understand. This is accomplished by enhancing the frequency that is narrowed through the telephone line. This feature can be turned on or off.

Base Speakerphone/Keypad: The base unit includes a speakerphone with a non-illuminated keypad that allows you to place calls from the base with or without the handset in the cradle. The volume of the base speakerphone can be adjusted to one of 8 levels.

Handset Speakerphone: The cordless handset can double as a speakerphone for hands-free conversations.

5-Line LCD: The cordless handset features a backlit 5-line LCD screen. The display will show lots of information, including Caller ID info, call duration, battery strength, Caller List, Directory, plus the Function Menu table. You can adjust the contrast of the LCD from 1-6.

Soft Keys: Located below the LCD screen, the three soft keys are used to select functions displayed directly above the keys. Functions displayed above the keys will change depending upon the state of use.

Navigator Keys: The four directional navigator keys on the handset are used to navigate through menus and to select items shown on the display, by pushing it up, down, left, or right.

Caller ID: This unit is compatible with Caller ID services offered by your telephone company. If you subscribe to Caller ID, the caller's name and phone number will be displayed and recorded in the handset's Caller List.

Call Waiting Caller ID: If you subscribe to both Call Waiting and Caller ID, when talking on the phone as another call comes in, the second caller's name and phone number will be displayed.

Ringer/Message Indicator: The Ringer/Message indicator is located at the top of the handset. The indicator flashes when you receive a call or when your answering machine has received messages.

Caller List: The unit can record information for up to 50 different callers and store this information in the Caller List. The unit can show the number of calls you missed. You can call back any number in the caller list. Once a number is in the Caller List, it can be manually or automatically edited (to add or remove area codes or prefixes), saved in the Directory, or deleted.

Phone Book: You can store up to 50 names and phone numbers in the handset's Phone Book. The directory names are sorted alphabetically. You can copy directory entries (all or one-at-a-time) from one cordless handset to another handset. You can enter names up to 16 characters, and enter phone numbers up to 32 digits. A pause can be entered in the phone number if required for dialing. Each pause is stored as one digit, and the pause is approximately 3.5 seconds.

Speed Dialer: You can store 10 speed dial phone numbers in the base unit.

Chain Dial: You can dial a combination of phone book or manual keypad entries while making a call. This feature can be used, for example, to first automatically dial a calling card access number that you have stored in the phone book, then manually or automatically dial your PIN and then automatically dial the destination number from the phone book.

Redial List: You can review a list of the last five numbers dialed, then call any of those numbers.

Mute/Hold: This system features both a Mute key and a Hold feature on the cordless handset and base. If you wish to temporarily mute the conversation, you can mute the handset so the other party cannot hear you, but you can still hear the other party. You can put the call on Hold for up to 10 minutes (after 6 minutes, the handset will sound an alarm tone), after 10 minutes the call is disconnected.

Handset Locator: This feature allows you to locate a handset by paging it from the base unit.

Intercom: This feature lets you set-up a 2-way conversation between the base and the handset, or between two handsets.

Call Transfer: Calls can be transferred from the base unit to any handset, or from a handset to the base unit or another handset.

Conference Calls: The handset and base unit, or two handsets can have a conference call with an outside party. A second outside party can join the conference on the second line.

Call Share/Call Privacy: Call Share allows the base unit or the cordless handset to join an existing external call by pressing one button. Up to four parties, including outside parties, can join in a conversation (if you have extra handsets). The Call Privacy feature prevents other users from joining your conversation.

The room monitoring feature has to be turned on at the monitored location before it can be used. To prevent a handset or the base from being monitored by other extensions you can leave the room monitor feature turned off.

Any Key Talk/Auto Talk: When the cordless handset is off its charger base, the Any Key Talk feature allows you to press any key (other than Off or the Navigator Keys) to answer a call. When the handset is on the charger base, the Auto Talk feature allows you to answer a call by simply picking up the handset. Auto Talk can be turned on/off in the menu.

Volume Controls: You have the ability to adjust volume levels on the cordless handset for both the handset and the handset's speakerphone. For the handset, you can choose from 3 levels and for the handset's speakerphone you have 6 levels. The volume of the base speakerphone can be adjusted to one of 8 levels.

Ringer Options: You can select one of three ringer volume settings for the cordless handset and base unit. In addition the each has four ring tones and four ring melodies and each line is set individually.

Flash Key: If you have the Call Waiting service, you can use the flash key to put the first call on hold, allowing you to answer a second incoming call. You can adjust the length of the flash time if necessary.

Belt Clip: An optional belt clip, available from Panasonic, can be attached to the back of the cordless handset so that you can hook it onto your belt.

Clarity Booster: If you are using the cordless handset in an area with interference, you can improve the sound quality by turning on the Clarity Booster feature. During and outside call the Clarity Booster turns on automatically when needed. You can also turn it on and off manually as needed. Use of the Clarity Booster will shorten the battery operating time.

Security: A handset cannot operate unless it is registered with the base unit. This feature, combined with frequency hopping provides outstanding system security.

Battery Information: The phone comes with an HHR-P105 rechargeable Nickel-Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) battery. A Ni-MH battery doesn't develop the "memory" effect like many Nickel-Cadmium (Ni-Cad) rechargeable batteries do.

  • Initial Charge Time: 7 hours
  • Battery Talk Time: approximately 5 hours (approximately 3 hours when using the Clarity Booster feature)
  • Battery Standby Time: approximately 7 days

Wall Mounting: The base unit can be placed on a desk or table, or it can be wall mounted using an optional bracket available from Panasonic.

Answering System Features

Total Recording Time: The total time for recording is approximately 60 minutes for all messages. The unit will announce when the remaining recording time is less than 10 minutes. A maximum of 99 messages can be recorded. Messages and greetings are stored in flash memory and will not be affected by power failures. All messages are saved until you delete them. A small LCD on the base unit indicates the number of recorded messages.

Caller's Recording Time: You can select from 1 minute, 2 minutes, or 3 minutes for recording incoming messages, or Greeting Only which records no message. Each line is set independently so the times can be different for line one and line two. Individual messages can be played back and erased from the base unit or the handset.

Greetings: You can record personal greetings of up to 2 minutes. Each line can have a unique greeting, or both can share the same greeting. The unit also comes with 2 pre-recorded messages; one used when the unit is set to Greeting Only or has no available recording time, and one used when a message will be recorded.

Number of Rings: You can set the number of rings before the answering system answers the call. The settings are individual for the two line, so they can be different. Your choices are 2 to 7 rings, or Toll Saver. When set to Toll Saver, the unit will answer on the second ring when there is at least one new message, or on the fourth ring when there are no new messages. This allows you to save on toll charges when calling to check your messages by hanging up when you hear the third ring, knowing there are no messages.

Call Screening: From the base unit you can listen to incoming messages.

Voice Day/Time Stamp: With each message the unit announces the day and time the message was recorded.

Message Alert: When a new message has been received, the handset LED will flash slowly.

Voice Memo: You can use the base unit to leave a voice memo (voice message) for yourself or someone else (maximum 3 minutes). Voice memos can be played back later with the same operation used to play back answering system messages.

Remote Operation: You can operate the Answering System by calling from any touch-tone phone. The system is protected by a two-digit remote code to prevent unauthorized access. You can either use the unit's voice prompts or direct commands by pressing keys. During remote operation, you can perform the following functions:

  • Playback all messages or playback new messages only
  • Repeat or skip a message
  • Record a new greeting for each line
  • Erase currently playing message or all messages
  • Turn on the answering system for Line 1, Line 2, or both
  • Turn off the answering system
