I'm looking for a cordless phone set with at least two handsets that is either 900 MHz or 5.8 GHz. 2.4 GHz is no good, interferes with our wireless network.

Hi mugs, What is your budget and do you have a CostCo/Sam's Club near you?

Budget is as cheap as possible while still functional. :) I'd say under $100, $60 would be ideal (I've found some that cheap, but only 2.4GHz). I have a Costco membership, and I know someone who has a Sam's Club membership.

Hey mugs,

Here are some options:

900MHz Uniden @ Amazon for $34.99 shipped (no answering machine):
http://www.amazon.co...il/-/B0000WZWXI

5.8GHz VTech @ Amazon for $89.99 shipped:
http://www.amazon.co...il/-/B0001MR140

I think most of the bundles at Sam's and Costco will be in the $130-150 range for 5.8GHz.

The 5.8GHz model at Amazon that I linked above got a few nice reviews. Positives were that the 2 phones use a shared address book, and they use standard AAA NiMH batteries, so no fancy proprietary batteries that you can't find. One negative someone mentioned is that it only supports these 2 phones, so if you need to add more later, you're out of luck. Still seems like a nice deal in your price range. I think I am going to post it on the main site in case anyone else is looking for a similar deal.

That is a great deal on a good cordless phone. Our trusty 3 year old Panasonic 900MHz is crystal clear and doesn't interfere with our 802.11b WiFi network which is an added plus :)
