    Does anyone use this phone? I jsut bought (unfortunately off of Ebay and thus can't return it). Anyway, the reception on it is horrible. It is a 2.4 Ghz (or whaterver tht is) phone. It is so staticy (even if you are within 2 feet of the base). My old phone (a 900 Mhz ATT) was crystal clear. Is there anything I can do to fix the problem? Is this inherent in this model or did I get a lemon?

    thanks

    Sounds like you got a lemon. Note that Vtech phones are crappy in general. I had a Sony 900MHz phone made by Vtech and the thing was a piece of junk. It never worked right.

    I've had a Casio 900 mhz DSS phone for the past 3 years and it's been great. I'd avoid Vtech and Sony like the plague for phones.

    Staples was clearing out 2431s about 2 months ago for $39.99. I picked up 3 of them. They all work great.
