VTech LS5145 Review

 

5145_lgThis is a LOADED phone. The VTech LS5145 (priced at $149.95) has all the bells and whistles you could ever need! It even has the ability to sync with your cell phone using bluetooth connectivity! 

I am very impressed with this phone. The design is very sleek. The handset is very lightweight but not flimsy. You have many ringtones to choose from and you can also assign a ringtone to a certain caller much like you can on a cell phone. There is a speakerphone on the base which can come in handy if your handset is low on batteries or you like to talk on speakerphone.

Another cool thing is that there is an intercom system built into the phone. My husband loves this because he can be upstairs with babies and the handset and select the intercom feature so that I hear him on the base from downstairs. This might not be a promising feature considering my husband might become very lazy and use the intercom when it’s unecessary! (haha)
