    Digital Cordless Phones

    Hi All

    I am looking for a good set of Cordless digital phones (2 handsets) which I will be using in the office, Range needs to be good, as well as quality, and the most to me important is the battery life / standby. I have purchased many phones in the past and found that after 2 - 3 months of use the batteries go flat after half a day off the base unit. I am not in need of a answer machine.

    Anyway based on the above I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations....

    Thanks in advance.

    There is a good chance these will interfere with your wireless network if you have one.

    Most phones run on 2.4Ghz and just because you don't notice doesn't necessarily mean it's not causing a problem.
    Of course it's fine if the phone is 5Ghz or vice versa.

    No I mean I did some substantial testing in my last work in these phones, I had a pedantic colleague who was like that. We used some quite nifty monitoring software and there was no recorded loss of signal strength or throughput as a result of using these phones.

    Are you seriously telling me that a 2.4GHz telephone causes absolutely no effect on a 2.4GHz wifi network ?
    Unless they are DECT, 5GHz or VoIP phones they will interfere with a 2.4GHz WiFi network.

    What happens when you have a DECT smartphone with WiFi? e.g. Panasonic KX-PRX120.
