I have a 3-handset cordless phone that allows up to 10 handsets. I looked on
the internet for extra handsets and they cost so much I was better off buying
another system (and that comes with an extra base, too).

I think the reasoning is that:
- not many people (relatively speaking) want extra bases (so, quantities
are lower, shelf space gets wasted on products with low turnover, etc.)
- people who want more, can *afford* to pay more (for the convenience
of having interchangeable handsets)

Be careful running multiple bases concurrently. Some may not like this.

You also want to be careful what frequency they are on. One of my
neighbors is on 900mz and I get them on my wireless headset. I had to
move my audio to another channel.
