VTech’s Cordless Phone w/Answering System + Big Giveaway!

June 11, 2013

Not too many people these days have the home phone systems – But I still enjoy having mine.  I love that I have a backup phone to use should my cell phone die, or if my cell phone gets lost I can call it from the home phone.  So the last time I was looking at new phones, I wrote a post explaining why I chose the VTech Cordless Phone with answering system.

I was just informed though that VTech has come out with a newer model, the VTech CS6529-16 in Red, white and blue.  Just in time for the 4th of July! I would probably never have a specific phone color JUST for the 4th, but having a red phone any other day is kinda nice, too.  The only thing missing on this phone vs. my VTech phone is that there is no wireless headset on this phone.

VTech Phones

It might seem strange in this day and age to need an answering system built into your phone.  But the secret to that is that it is SO much cheaper to have a home phone without all the features.  Really, who needs them?  I use CenturyLink and pay about $14/month for my home line.  I don’t have long distance (but my cell phone has free LD), or voicemail (which my VTech phone covers), or call waiting.  If someone who knows me wants to get in touch with me – and my line is busy – they’ll call my cell.

The VTech CS6529-16 has a handset speakerphone – so with the touch of a button you can be on speaker phone. This feature is great for my kids to talk to grandparents (love it!). It also has Quiet Mode which silences the ringer on the phone and base so you’re not bothered when you don’t want to be.

The ECO Mode is a power-conserving technology that manages the consumption of the battery for optimal performance.

Some of the other great qualities of the VTech CS6529-16 are shown below.

This VTech CS6529-16 is priced very well at $29.95 and can be found at Target.  I’d also draw your attention to the $44 version of this phone, which includes an extra handset that you can place somewhere else in the house; and the $19 version which does not include the voicemail feature.


Win It!!!

(so sometimes we can’t even answer cause the button won’t mash down to connect) I would love to win this phone!

  104. Lorelei casts love spells during readings, done at Crow Haven Corner
    in Salem MA or over the phone. Just like pea gravel, cobblestones work best on walkways, as well as retaining walls.
    And these new energies are a higher, sweeter, gentler energy than what we’ve lived in the last 5,
    125 years.

  105. The Inuit, for example, thrived on a diet largely consisting of seal meat and whale blubber
    (very few vegetables grow in the freezing cold) while the Bantu of South Africa thrived on a diet very
    high in carbohydrates and the Masai did quite
    well on a diet rich with cow’s blood. By using a growing tent, you
    can easily provide the seeds with exactly what they need for optimal germination to occur.

    If you are a commercial greenhouse owner, you understand the need for a steady supply of seedlings.

  106. Light this time is reflected on inclusions positioned parallel with each other.

    Ametrine is a very durable gemstone suited for everyday wear.
    Now that you have picked a healing stone for yourself you need to know how to cleanse and program it for optimal healing benefits, and how to use the healing stone.

  107. Something to cool off in handily might be a great addition to the garden plan. Leave them
    out for longer periods of time until the night-time temperatures are above 50 degrees.
    However, it is difficult for people to perceive that there is a need for these tents.

  108. Above: Found In custom projects by Henrybuilt, one-of our
    favorite kitchen- Finnish, design costumes -built Durat can be a cotton-based stable

    preservation than other styles of countertop darkens

    The secondary nutrients include calcium, magnesium,
    iron, and the like. Although colder weather shuts down and destroys tender vegetable plants, you do
    have an alternative for growing your own succulent vegetables,
    and that is to utilize a grow closet and garden indoors.

  110. They are safe to operate and require no additional cooling equipment as they are only warm to the
    touch, regardless of how long they have been on. In areas where there is
    lack of sunlight, these lights can be a boon for growing indoor plants, since they assist in the process of photosynthesis.

    UFO LED lights use less power than other common grow lights, and
    UFO LED lighting creates less pollution as well.

  111. I like reading a post that can make men and women think.
    Also, thank you for allowing me to comment!
