    one great feature has to be a good battery life. We lose our phones in the chair or couch or various other spots and by the time we find it ringing, it is near dead or dies shortly after an answer.

    An important feature I would look for in a landline phone is the distance the handset will carry from the base. Managing a motel often finds me out cleaning the rooms, in the laundry room, pulling weeds, etc…. Currently I transfer the motel to my cell phone b/c the cheap system that the owner has set up won’t reach far enough. I’d love to free up my cell (for personal calls) and win this V-Tech system.
