My old cordless is kaput. It was 2.4 GHz and got static near the microwave, so I won't really miss it. We are thinking about a wireless computer network in near future, and should buy the new phone (with answering machine) with that in mind too.
I had assumed that 5.8 GHz would be the natural/only choice. However, some research showed up a new technology called DECT that operates at1.9 GHz.
I would greatly appreciate hearing your opinion on which one, 5.8 GHz or 1.9 GHz, is more likely to coexist peacefully with the wireless and the microwave?
Non-computer question: I was thinking of a Panasonic, just habit and positive experience but not necessary. However, Panasonic's answering machine doesn't *seem to* tell you how many messages you have in the inbox. At least the pictures I looked at didn't show any obvious LCD for that purpose. Can anybody recommend a good phone, any brand, which will show how many messages there are in the box? Thanks.
