    Hello All,

    The old ones fell apart so now we have new cordless phones. DECT6.0
    types from Panasonic, Model # KX-TG6413. Besides ringers that aren't
    loud enough they work fine, except for a huge bummer: The intercom function.

    You have to press some menu button, then key in a 4-key (four!) code
    sequence just to get into intercom mode, then select which handset you
    want to call. Totally pathetic. The old phone was easier, one button.

    So, does anyone know whether these phones can be hacked into doing a
    much simpler one-button intercom? Couldn't find anything on the web.

    It was the smallest common denominator phone. It ain't easy to find a
    phone type where they've done everything right. Probably doesn't exist.
    But this bug blew me away, how can SW folks be so far out?

    Oh yeah :)

    Not that easy. This is one of a few lines that doesn't operate on
    2.45GHz, has good range and uses regular AAA NiMH cells.

    Not that cool if you have to holler across the yard early in the morning
    when some neighbors are still in bed. I was hoping there is a secret
    service mode hack to reassign function keys or something, just like the
    backdoors in some DVD players to get around the stupid region code blocks.
