I like the sleek looking phones. But few are cool enough for the teens rooms. I was offered the VTech LS6217 cordless phone with DECT 6.0 digital technology to try and when it arrived, I knew it had the right “cool” factor for either me or my kids.

No only does it come with interchangeable graphics for the back of the phone, but you can switch the cradle support from blue to orange to green. Very cool. You can even go to vtechphones.com to make your own plate design for free!

Of course the DECT 6.0 digital technology provides the best sound quality, security and range in cordless phones. And what I love, it minimizes the interference with wireless networks and other electronic devices.

Isn’t it cool looking? Looking for the perfect grad gift? Father’s day? Want to personalize the phone to fit the room?

I’m giving away one VTech phone to my readers.

    Thanks for the email! I had to come back and try my hand at this one!

    We need new phones, seems the lightning has gotten the best of our current V-Tech phones! Lots of static! (I’m not sure the model number and am too lazy to get off my buttox and get one!) But the features I love, is 3 handsets, one phone jack, and an answering machine!

    I also like the DS6121-5 –
    Five handset cordless phone system with digital answering device and caller ID
    since I think I would prefer silver. I love the extensive features like remote message retrieval and the blue back light.
    I had a Vtech phone system in the past and I loved it. I have another brand right now that is okay but I would love to go back to VTech.
