About - Clarity XL45

The Clarity XL45 is a cordless phone available from Clarity. The XL45 typically costs between $106.89 - $239.95.

Consumer Reports recommends that you match the features on a model to the needs you have. Here's our take on some of the specifications and features that are commonly available on cordless phone models like the XL45.

Caller ID:
Caller ID with a three-line display shows the name and phone number of a caller and the date and time of the call, provided you subscribe to caller ID services. Some phones have an additional display line that shows which line, say line 1 or line 2, the call came in on, or indicators such as a battery strength or voice mail. If you have Caller ID with Call Waiting, the phone displays the name and number of the second caller if you're already on the phone. The display is usually on the handset; some phones also have one on the base. Phones with Call Waiting Deluxe provide you with more choices on how to handle a second call when you are already on the phone assuming you subscribe to the service, but not all features may be available in all areas. Some of the choices that the service supports; facilitates conferencing with two outside parties, or a prerecorded message states that you will be available shortly, and the caller is put on hold, or prerecorded message indicates you are busy, and the waiting call is disconnected, or the caller is sent to your voice mail.

Lacks Features
Not Durable
Poor Sound Quality
Best Uses
The volume of the phone is just above average when at its maximum. Then when you hit the boost button, it is too loud to listen to. The boost setting is not saved so everytime you use the phone you have to manually adjust the volume. The phone only stores three numbers in memory. After about 1.5 years of use it no longer functions - nothing lights up.
