a cheap phone

Recently, I bought a cheap telephone (not mobile phone) with a single handset. This phone was to replace my secondary telephone (currently used for receiving fax messages). The 9-year-old telephone does not hold the battery long, and I have to be extremely carefully when putting it back to the cradle for charging, otherwise it won't get charged.

One main feature that interests me was, without a doubt, the "wireless network friendly". As mentioned in previous entry, I've been experience some interference on telephone with WiFi.

Best of all, it's a cheap and good looking phone. (to Don: Antony is poor.)

At home, we have a 900MHz cordless phone with keys that stick. It replaced a 46MHz (actually 46.670MHz, I could even pick it up with my AM scanner before I sold it) cordless phone with keys that also stuck.

To super-security concerned people like you, you should use a digital cordless phone, not an analogue phone running at frequency can be easily picked up.
What do you mean by keys that stick?
Posted by Antony on 11 March 2010 5:17 PM.
"Keys that stick" as in, let's say you press the 6 key while dialing. For the first few presses, maybe nothing will happen, then finally one of the presses will register, except it dials "6" two or three times. Hence the solution is typically to do the dialing on another phone or on the base station, then pick up the handset and hang up the other phone.

Don't you think that "keys that stick" is a good indication for you to upgrade your telephone to a new high tech and super-secure version?

For how much we use it, no.

Well, as I mentioned in the blog entry, this new cheap phone was for the secondary telephone line, which is hooked up to a fax machine. In other words, I don't answer the phone call on this phone line, and only uses it as a backup phone or not to engage the main line for hours.
The battery did not last long, and hard to charge it, hence the said cheap handset.
It is digital, but not the super-secure which suits you. Since I can replace the not-often used phone, so should you.

What's with you and "super-secure" all of a sudden? Up until 2008 I was using an analog cellphone, you can pick up one of those with a scanner too.
Posted by Don_HH2K on 13 March 2010 1:57 PM.
Didn't you start that your telephone conversation was not secure enough? And I kindly suggested you to obtain a secure telephone system which is easily obtainable these days.
Posted by Antony on 13 March 2010 2:25 PM.
No, that was just a quick comparison to show how much better off you are.

Let's not forget you live in advanced United States of America, and you have access to lots more products than here.
Posted by Antony on 13 March 2010 11:28 PM.
This "advanced United States of America" is something you just started last night. What's with all the buzz words inserted into the irrelevant arguments lately?
Posted by Don_HH2K on 14 March 2010 4:23 AM.
It was used correctly. United States of America is a very advanced country, in almost every single aspect.
Posted by Antony on 14 March 2010 7:22 AM.
Our healthcare system is backwards, our average broadband speeds are slower than even some post-Communist countries, our educational programs are severely lacking on a global scale... On the other hand, our huge multi-trillion-dollar national debt is indeed quite advanced!
Posted by Don_HH2K on 14 March 2010 11:33 AM.
Do you have to be so negative about your advanced United States of America?
Millions of people wanting to migrate to USA each year. Or at least, having their kids educated in the world famous American Education...
For those who aren't accepted by the United States of America Government, they still try to get in by other means.
In short, it must be so good to be so attractive.

In regards to that last part, there are news stories circulating about illegal/undocumented immigrants leaving the country, not because they are being arrested, but because they can't find work and giving up; in other words, not what they expected.
Posted by Don_HH2K on 14 March 2010 4:49 PM.
It might be just one side effect of the Global Financial Crisis. Well, it keeps your United States of America whiter, as we all know that most of those illegal/undocumented immigrants are dark skinned.
Posted by Antony on 14 March 2010 4:54 PM.
You say that as it's a good thing, how racist of you.
Posted by Don_HH2K on 15 March 2010 2:10 AM.
And you want the streets full of illegal immigrants/workers? Reducing illegal immigrants is without a doubt a good thing.
Posted by Antony on 15 March 2010 10:49 AM.
You did not initially phrase it that way. You phrased it as if it was some sort of racial purification, "keeping [the country] whiter" and such.
Posted by Don_HH2K on 15 March 2010 11:17 AM.
That was just a more direct way of saying, as I don't worry about the political correctness as you Americans.
Posted by Antony on 15 March 2010 11:29 AM.
Your "more direct way of saying" also implies that the country should be white, or would be better white, which is clearly racist.
Posted by Don_HH2K on 15 March 2010 12:39 PM.
In case you were too busy studying, during the 2008 Election, it has been made clear to the world that many WHITE Americans do not want a dark-skinned President, nor a President's name is not an average American name.
Posted by Antony on 15 March 2010 12:47 PM.
And apparently there are a majority of non-racists compared to racists.
Posted by Don_HH2K on 15 March 2010 12:52 PM.
A lot of things can really be done with phones. No wonder it boomed the market through outsource telemarketing and telemarketing outsource industries.
