I still am not happy about all the manufacturers dumping models on the US market with built in answering machines. Most models that only come in the built in answering machine version in the US, come in a version without it in other countries and instead have a flashing light for voicemail on the base. Most if not all current cordless systems will at least show an indication on the LCD that there is voicemail.
I don't believe that is the case as I had inquired about my DECT Plus phone from Panasonic. Here is what their email reply was:Davesworld wrote:As far as Panasonic goes and HD voice, the only possibility is with the DECT Plus from Panasonic. The main difference would be that it (supposedly) uses the g.722 codec between the base and handset rather than g.726 of most DECT 6.
Thank you for contacting Panasonic. We truly apologize for the delay in
responding to your inquiry and we hope that this has not caused you any
Regarding your Question:
Is Panasonic model number: KX-TG6583T cat-IQ compliant? I need to know as
my ooma.com VoIP service offers high definition voice calls but requires
an hd-compatible (cat-IQ) phone.?
Answer: Only IP based cordless phones would be compliant to cat-IQ.
Panasonic SIP phones such as KX-TGP500 and KX-TGP550 has wide band codec
(G.722), unfortunately it is not compatible with the Ooma VOIP service.
