I recently bought the Casio PhoneMate (Model SI-460). It’s got almost all the bells and whistles you could ask for: 4 lines, 6 mailboxes (each with its own message), Caller ID, speakersphone, headset compatible, and it’s expandable so you can link up a whole office of similar phones (each of which can have its own 6 messages). One big plus is that the manual is well designed and easy to follow. It’s all digital and can store up to about 25 minutes of sound. I bought it at Staples for about $200 and it’s worked great.
I have it set up with one mailbox for buyers, one for sellers, one for renters, and one for all other messages.
The only problem that I’ve run into is that each message, other than the initial greeting, is accessed by pressing *0x (star, zero, x= numbers 1-6). I’ve found that some people are confused by having to remember and press this type of combination. It’s a very small minority but I’m certain that I’ve missed a few potential buyers or sellers because of this.
Full disclosure: I don’t have any financial interest in Casio or Staples.
Feel free to e-mail me with any specific questions.
