   I got one a while back and I don't like it.  The range is poor and the 
sound quality is not all that great.

   A novice newby can't break it but anyone with experience can.  I've seen 
posts on how it works but can't remember.

   AT&T has some kind of security feature on their 900Mhz phone but I 
haven't looked into it.
