CONSUMERS DIAL-IN TO CONVENIENCE WITH TAD/CORDLESS 'DYNAMIC DUO'

 TORRANCE, Calif., May 25 /PRNewswire/ -- For consumers bent on keeping in touch, one of the most convenient products available today -- the cordless telephone -- is now a "TAD" better.
 Cordless telephones with integrated telephone answering devices (TADs) are becoming the telecommunications product of choice as consumers realize the benefits of combining both products in one compact unit.
 "With cordless telephones and answering machines in approximately half of all households, they're quickly becoming household staples," says Jim Oblak, vice president of marketing at PhoneMate, a leading manufacturer of telephone answering machines and cordless phones. "Combination units are the new `dynamic duo' because they combine the mobility of a cordless telephone with the efficiency of an answering machine."
 To get the most out of an integrated TAD/cordless telephone, PhoneMate recommends that consumers look for the following features:
 -- Voice Time/Day Stamp: This feature helps prioritize callbacks by announcing the time and day each message was received.
 -- Handset Message Retrieval and Call Screening: Those who want privacy can use this function to play back messages and screen calls through the cordless telephone handset.
 -- Voice Assisted Operation: This function verbally instructs users on how to remotely operate their TAD and also confirms commands, such as "I will replay messages."
 -- Auto Extension Disconnect: Busy households will find this function useful, as it automatically stops the answering machine when a call is answered from an extension phone.
 -- Ultra Clear Noise Reduction Circuit: This exclusive PhoneMate feature provides clear cordless telephone reception by minimizing the background noise inherent with radio airwaves.
 -- Optimum Channel Memory: While many cordless telephones spend several seconds searching for an open line before a call can be placed or received, those with features such as PhoneMate's trademarked Optimum Channel Memory constantly scan channels to provide almost immediate dial tone access.
 -- Automatic Digital Security Coding: This feature automatically prevents false ringing and dialing, as well as unauthorized use of the phone line -- common problems for some cordless telephones.
 -- Quick Charge Circuitry: This feature recharges the cordless telephone handset batteries four times faster than conventional methods and keeps the phone charged for up to three weeks.
 All of the features listed above are available on PhoneMate's Model 2750, which can be found along with other PhoneMate products in consumer electronics and department stores nationwide.
