When a friend of mine came over, she was super excited to see my retro cordless phone, it's very stylish and sleek. I love that the handset charges facing facedown on the base, so while charging and resting it maintains its look. 
The rotary style keypad is very cool too, and I like that you can use the buttons on the base of the phone! 
A few days ago, I barely missed a call from my sister, and when I got to where the base was, to see who called, I could hear the voicemail and the icon on the base said "Screening Call" as I listened, I could hear her leaving me a message! That was very cool! I liked being able to screen my call and just pick it up during the conversation if I wanted to talk..it's one of the features I miss by not having an old school answering system, and I was able to tell my phone company to take my voicemail off my phone which was $7.00 a month!
