I just bought an Emerson Corded Caller ID Phone from Walmart for $9. OK, it is pretty cheap but.. um.. it is still pretty disappointing. The phone requires 4 AA batteries to operate the caller id lcd that shows you the number that is calling you. OK, first of all 4 batteries is a lot and amazingly the display is still pathetic. The display is just plain bad. The phone lays flat and that with the display make it useless in terms of identifying the caller. It is going back. I should have been tipped off by the fact that almost all of the boxes on the shelf appeared to have been opened and returned to the store.
