About - Panasonic KX-TG4733B

The Panasonic KX-TG4733B is a cordless phone available from Panasonic. The KX-TG4733B typically costs between $57.99 - $241.98.

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 KX-TG4733B.

Talk time (hrs.):
Talk time, displayed to the nearest hour, is the manufacturer's claim of how long you can converse on the handset when it is fully charged. "NS" indicates that the manufacturer did not provide a value. Typically, these are stated as "up to X hours talk time."

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.

Maximum no. of cordless handsets:
The manufacturer stated maximum number of cordless handsets that can be registered to a multiple handset capable phone. A phone that can support up to eight handsets, for example, can have eight handsets registered to the base, but you may only be able to use four at once, say two using handset to handset intercom, while two others conference with an outside party. Others may just allow one handset to be used at a time, so can't be used like an additional (extension) phone you have connected to the same phone line. NA represents not applicable. See Buying Advice for more information.

Im 49 yrs old and this model phone has lasted the longest without any issues - have had many brands of cordless phones and none have come close. I have had this model for at least 7 years.( which is WAY longer than ive gotten out of any other cordless phone.) I have a stay at home wife + 3 kids who can wear out a phone with the best of them !! :) I am just now to the point that i had to replace one of the batteries. They work great , feel sturdy in your hand, sound quality is great , all the range that i need. I am just now starting to even think about replacing these phones , thinking that there may be ones that are even better now - since its been so long , i figured mine is out of date now. But to my suprise im finding the same model is still one of the top ranked available .
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
