No Sidetone on cordless phone :-(
My old Uniden cordless phone developed a hum and crackle. I just replaced it with a Panasonic kx-tg832sk. The new phone has more features than I need and I was very happy with it until I made my first call and found it didn't have sidetone. How can you make a phone and not provide sidetone? It feels like I'm talking to the wall instead of having a conversation. Sidetone has been a phone feature since the 19th century. It's amazing that it was left out. I don't even know what to do. If I returned it, how would I know if what I replaced it with had sidetone. I'm sure a store clerk wouldn't even know what I was talking about, and I've never seen it listed as a feature for any phone, it's just always been there. I'm very disappointed!
Jeff, I'm sorry: this Panasonic Industrial Devices forum is for design and production engineers that have questions about adding Panasonic Bluetooth and/or Panasonic Wi-Fi modules to a product.
