Panasonic kx tge433b Review: Range
Panasonic kx-tge433b has a call range of 1.92 GHz. You can make and hear calls clearly when the phones are 200 yards apart.
Obviously, the range will vary slightly depending on the environment you are in. Environments with many thick obstacles or other magnetic waves will reduce the range and clarity of communication.
For a basic home, you will have no problem. Users have reported using this phone perfectly well on a three storey building with one handset on each floor.
Panasonic KX-TGE433B Cordless Phone: Calls
Panasonic kx tge433b cordless phone allows you to block up to 250 contacts. This phone also has caller ID, which reads out the names of people who are calling you.
It will read out to you even the names of people you have blocked, which may be annoying to some people.
The good news is you can turn off caller ID completely. The caller ID speaks in English and Spanish though it sounds robotic.
Panasonic kx tge433b comes with an answering machine. The answering machine allows you to pick a call that it was currently answering.
You can also record your own message on the answering machine and not depend on the generic messages.
During a conversation on the Panasonic kx-tge433b cordless phone, you have the option to hold a call.
However, there is no call forwarding on this phone. Like many other phones, this Panasonic also connects to voicemail and uses your normal mobile airtime.
In case you are asking if two people can use this phone to call different people at the same time, then know that is not possible.
However, you can do intercom and voice paging; talking on two handsets but allowing the person on the other handsets to hear you.
Some users complained of hearing small echoes while talking using this Panasonic kx-tge433b cordless phone.
When you have a missed call, a missed call light indicator blinks on top of the phone. The screen also shows how many missed calls you have.
There are 9-speed dial buttons on Panasonic kx tge433b. You can set a maximum of 6 rings before the answering machine picks up.
However, some users complained about the phone resetting to 2 rings often. If you want 3 way calling on this phone, contact your service provider.
Panasonic KX-TGE433B Review: Sound
The volume of this Panasonic kx-tge433b cordless phone is a bit low even when you use the speakerphone.
It may work for people with partial hearing loss, but those with severe hearing loss will have to consider the Clarity XLC 2+ amplified cordless phone.
There is no audio signal to notify you of a message left on the phone. If you fail to hear the initial message notification, you will have to use the message indicator light.
There is a silent mode on this Panasonic kx tge433b. Actually, you can set specific handsets to be silent while others are on normal mode.
You can also set a specific time when your handset goes to silent automatically and then goes back to normal after that period is over. There is also an option to set specific callers to override the silent mode.
There is a headphone jack on the side of this phone beside number 7 on the keypad. This makes it hard to hold the phone while talking with headphones plugged in.
Also, note the headphone jack is 2.5 mm and don’t confuse it with the normal 3.5 mm.
You can assign specific ringtones for specific callers or group of people.
The clarity of the sound is good enough but cannot compare to that of phones like Clarity XLC 3.4.
There is also no option to slow down the speed of fast-talking callers like on the Panasonic KX-TGM450S.
On the base of the phone, you will see a phone locator button, which when you press all the handsets beep once.

The phone is easy to set up and use. However, it will take you some time to get to know how to use all the features on this phone.
The keypad on this Panasonic kx tge433b cordless phone has light and is made of soft plastic.
Although soft plastic tends to wear out more easily than hard plastic, Panasonic chose to use it. The buttons are big just like on other Panasonic phones.

Due to poor design, this handset easily falls from its charging cradle.
