Hi James, sorry to hear about your wife. I'm glad she's getting proper treatment now.

I remember the thread you're referring to about the phones. What I remember taking from the information that was shared was that the better way to go was with a 900 MHz. A couple of folks shared (myself included) having used both the 900 MHz, and more recently a 2.4 GHz, and finding the latter having much poorer range. I think it was mentioned that the 2.4 GHz is in the range used by microwaves, and that the signal is much more easily disrupted or blocked. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong. I, personally, bought the 2.4 GHz thinking the higher number meant more range capability. I have been very disappointed. It does poorly sometimes even in my house, and terrible anywhere in my yard. (Mine is a Conairphone.) My previous one (a 900 MHz) picked up some, even at my neighbors property, but overall seemed to max out for clear reception at about 250 - 300'.

No.1-I haven't had that problem. No.2-I have a cordless phone and I can't wait until someone invents a phone with a cord on it so you don't have to remember where you left it last.

About coreless phones. Sears has a heavy duty Craftsman cordless phone that is built for use in sheds, barns etc. The model no. is 27413 and the charge base has an extra slot to keep a spare battery charged. I bought one a few months ago and so far have been very pleased with it.

James, prayers are on the way. Hope she gets well real soon.

Thanks Donna, and Kat. Kat thankyou so much for asking about Jenny, she is coughing every breath worse than she has been, She was up all night long last night coughing, and can't get a appointment with a doctor until in the morning, and I bet he puts her in the hospital. So everyone prayers is needed.Thanks all James(Ga)

first, your wife's bad cold could, if it hasn't already, turn into pneumonia which at any age is dangerous.Glad she is finally going to doc. About a cordless phone, I tried three of them and decided the Panasonic gave me better and longer reception than the others. It also seemed to be clearer then the others and I can hear it ring, That is really a plus for me, as I have a problem with hearing phones . This was 5 years ago, they ought to be better now. It was not a cheap one
Good luck with your wife

James, I have not had any problem posting but I do have problems with using a "back" button and being able to see all the replies after refreshing the page. Hope Jenny (wife?) improves.

We bought the 2.4 ghz that has the 2 handsets. I have one in the garage that is away from the house. The wife can page me from the house with it which is handy. You can buy as many handsets as you want. It comes with the charger and stand for each phone. It has a phone book memory in it that you can put all your numbers in it to call. Any mart has them.
