Panasonic KX-TG680B Reviews
Average Customer Review:
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
You must own a compatible base station for this to work, but it is really awesome. Being able to screen calls from the answering machine at any phone node in the house is fantastic. The intercom is handy if your place is pretty spread out like mine is. Feature rich. Very good interface. Easy to learn.
Pros: Easy to use, good sound, cool and actually useful features.
Cons: It's a small phone and it's difficult to scrunch it between your ear and shoulder to free up your hands. They offer a headset, but for once and awhile use it's not worth it.

Add-on Handset: The KX-TGA680 cordless handset is an add-on accessory for select Panasonic cordless phone systems. It is compatible with Panasonic KX-TG6840-, KX-TG6870-, KX-TG7840-, and KX-TG7870-series Digital Cordless Answering Systems. It is not a stand-alone phone. It must first be registered to the base unit of the cordless phone system before it can be used. A total of six handsets can be registered the phone system's base unit.
DECT 6.0 Plus with Range Boost: DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) operates in the 1.9 GHz frequency range, which means the phone systems will not conflict with other wireless devices such as computer routers, wireless keyboards, microwave ovens and other common household devices. DECT 6.0 Plus with Range Boost provides an 80 times increase in signal correction resolution over conventional DECT 6.0 handsets, and better talking quality over a longer range.
1.8" Backlit LCD: The cordless handset features a backlit 1.8" Full-dot Mono LCD screen with a resolution of 103 x 65 pixels. The handset LCD displays Caller ID information, battery strength, Caller List, Directory, plus the Function Menu table. Along the bottom, the functions for the two handset soft keys are displayed.
Navigator Key: The navigator key on the handset is used to navigate through menus and to select items shown on the display by pushing it up, down, left, or right. You can easily adjust the receiver or speaker volume by pressing the navigator key up or down as you talk.
Soft Keys: Located below the LCD screen, three soft keys are provided for selecting functions displayed directly above the keys. Functions displayed above the keys will change depending upon the state of use.
Ringer Options: You can select one of six ringer volume settings or Off for the cordless handset. In addition, the handset has five ring tones and five ring melodies to choose from.
Talking 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. In addition, the phone uses text-to-speech technology to announce the caller's information between rings.
Call Waiting Caller ID: If you subscribe to Call Waiting with Caller ID, when talking on the phone as another call comes in, the second caller's name and phone number will be displayed.
Caller List: The unit records information for the last 50 callers and stores 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.
Shared Phonebook: All handsets registered to the base unit can use the unit's phonebook. Up to 100 names and phone numbers can be stored in the base unit's phonebook. You can enter names up to 16 characters, and phone numbers up to 24 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. The directory names are sorted alphabetically.
Redial List: You can review a list of the last five numbers dialed, then call any of those numbers. Each redial list entry can have a maximum of 48 digits.
Call Transfer/Intercom: If you have more than one handset registered to the phone, calls can be transferred from one handset to another handset. You can also set-up a 2-way conversation between two handsets (intercom).
Privacy Mode: You can prevent users of other handsets from joining your conversations by engaging the Privacy Mode in the Initial Setting menu. To allow other users to join your conversation (call share), you can turn the Privacy Mode off.
Any Key Talk/Auto Talk: The Any Key Talk feature allows you to press any of the numeric keys, the * key, or the # key 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.

Conference Calls: Up to 2 handsets can have a conference call with an outside party.
