VTech LS6217 Review

 

Last year we did a review on the VTech Ls5145, a loaded phone with tons of great features.. it even looked pretty fancy.This year, we’ve been sent a VTech LS6217 to check out and review.

Retailing for only $34.95 the LS6217 is packed full of cool features including:

  • DECT 6.0 digital technology provides the best sound quality, security and range in cordless phones
  • Protects you from identity theft with digital security
  • Interference-free
  • Ability to change out graphics on the back of the handset using one of the three designs included
  • Ability to create your own graphics using an online tool
  • Changeable handset and base plates (blue, green, orange)
  • Caller ID/call waiting – stores 50 calls
  • 50-name and number phonebook directory
  • Voicemail waiting indicator
  • Large reverse LCD with blue backlighting
  • Orange backlit keypad
  • Handset volume control
  • Trilingual prompts – choose between English, Spanish or French
  • Page/handset locator
  • Selectable ring tones
  • Slim handset size

We’ve been using this new LS6217 for a little over a week and have had absolutely no problems with it. The sound is clear, no problems with static and the range on this phone is very good. We’ve been able to walk a good 50 feet or more and still use the phone with no problems.

Setup was extremely easy, literally 5 minutes or less and after you let the phone charge overnight, you’re good to go and can start enjoying your new toy. Also, a plus on this phone is that it includes a Pager button so if something happens (like for instance one of your kids takes off with the phone and you can’t find it or they don’t remember where they put it) you can hit the Page button and your handset will beep until you find the phone. I don’t know how many times our twins have found the phone laying on a table or something and have taken off with it.. then when we need it, it’s no where to be found!

I’m really loving the interchangeable designs for both the base and the handset.. if one day we feel like changing the phone up, we simply change the design and it’s like having a brand new phone which is pretty cool. The designs that come with the phone aren’t boring either.. they are fun and colorful. You can also create and print your own graphics using the free tool at www.vtechphones.com!

Even though this LS6217 is not as fancy looking as the LS5145, it is a great find for anyone. To me, this would even make a great gift for any student or teen. Not only does it look cool and funky but with the option of being able to add your own personality to the phone, it’s makes for great phone at an affordable price. (Since back-to-school season is already here.. why not make it a Christmas gift!)
