This is definitely one of the best phones provided by Panasonic suitable for home and small office use. As you will see on this page, there really is very little that this phone does not provide and it utilizes the best and most advanced technologies to fully integrate with your cell phones as well. The Panasonic KX-TG7642M has a 4.3 star rating at Amazon from over 2,000 customer reviews. That is truly a great reflection of the quality of this phone system.
This particular model comes with 2 handsets in the box, but you can also choose to buy additional devices, with Amazon allowing for up to 5 handsets. In total you can have up to 6 handsets connected at the same time which makes this a very good system for large households or a small business. Expandability is also very flexible as you do not have to buy all handsets up front. You can simply buy additional devices as your needs for them increase.
A phone of this caliber would not go far without a built-in answering machine. But Panasonic have definitely taken functionality to another level when it comes to accessing voice messages. While the answering machine is built into the base unit, you do not have to go to the base in order to listen to messages. You can either access them from any connected handset or for added convenience you can also dial in from a remote location to listen to voice messages.
With a total of 18 minutes of recording time you do not have to worry too much about your message box filling up too quickly, especially at times when you are away from your home or business for an extended period of time. But because you can access your messages from anywhere in the world you are able to keep recording time under control.
1) Connect to your cell phone: Once you pair this cordless phone to your Bluetooth enabled cell phone you can make and receive calls from the Panasonic handset using your cell phone connection. Essentially you wired and cell phone systems become one integrated solution.
2) Copy phone book from cell phone: This is a really convenient feature as it will save you the time and effort to enter all your phone numbers from your cell phone. Simply pair the two systems and copy over your phone numbers.
If you have a large house or business premises then range could become an issue. While DECT 6.0 technology’s standard range is more than enough for the average property you will get an additional 20% range with the built in range boost technology.
This is a very convenient function for busy people. While most cordless phones these days will come with caller ID, this Panasonic takes it one step further. Not only does it display the name or number of the calling person, but you can set up the phone to use text to voice technology and speak out the name of the person calling. So, while you are busy doing other things, you don’t have to go to the handset to check who’s calling and decide whether you want to answer it or not.
The Panasonic KX-TG7642M is an ideal device for home use and small businesses due to its wide range of advanced functionality. The answering machine really allows a small business person to stay ontop of missed calls even when on the road for longer periods. And with the built-in Bluetooth functionality you end up with a fully integrated voice communications system that leaves very little to wish for.
