Still not sure what happened, but the phone just suddenly quit working. We've used this phone daily for several months and noticed that it hadn't rang in a few days. Thought maybe it was just dead, but it turns out it won't power on at all. It's been plugged in the whole time right where we usually leave it.
Not very good, seeing as this is our only phone in the house. If we had an emergency, we would've been in a lot of trouble. Trying to get it replaced now and stumbled on these reviews. Figured I'd let others know, in-case it happened to anyone else.
