Announcer: No tiny call and hang up buttons. No virtual keyboard on the screen. Just pick up the receiver, listen for a dial tone and dial your party’s number. It couldn’t be easier.

No more repeating yourself because of bad telephone audio. And when you’re done with your call, merely replace the handset on the base and your call is disconnected.
