Poor visibility on handset screen.

General Comments
As the previous reviewer said, its not worth buying the Philips Onis 300 Vox TU5351 just for the SMS feature. You have to sign up to get a "big number". Friends then send their text to this big number, first making reference to your home number, then typing the message. Long winded, and big number doesn't tell you the price of the texts!



The handset screens are difficult to read at times. The text appears to float, and the shadow can become confusing.



The rotating menu selector at the side takes some getting used to.



The answer machine has no audible message alert, but the base unit light flashes, and each handset displays the answer machine icon. This is ok if the first thing you do is check the base unit or handset for messages.



The outgoing message is played each time you turn the answer machine on. Why would I want to hear my own message each time?



In conclusion, there are some bad points to this phone, and I don't think the SMS element is easy enough to use. Day to day use, however, is great once you've mastered the menu system. A good solid phone.
