I bought a pair to take wade fishing so I could keep in contact with my friends. The units were in our vest pockets no more than a few inches deep at any time. They both leaked and took in water within minutes.
This phone is cheap, however it serves its purpose. I don't use my home phone often. I just need something to use when I need to find my cell phone. Nice phone if you just want something basic.
FYI, you need batteries for caller ID to work.
What kind of person would put buttons where your hand naturally holds the receiver? It defies logic. I hang up on my friends accidentally so often that I'm afraid they will get a complex. [...] None of my other receivers will fit the body.[...] For such a simple phone, it cost a lot. What a waste of money.
