The only thing I didn't realize is you have to put each phone on the base. That registers the phone and charges it. Then move to the small base and repeat with all 3 phones before they all work together.
I got this to replace a two handset phone I had. My only complaint,that this doesn’t have a blinking light on the handset to let me know when I have a message. Other than that it’s great. It was also cheaper to buy this than purchase a separate extra handset.
The first set of three phones that I bought was much better than this set I struggle with this set,, but I need a house phone so it is what it is I just need a plane phone that's I can pick up messages not one with all the bells and whistles. To bad you don't have one.
