Yes, I still live in the dark ages of needing an actual land line at my home. We have our cell phones, but we are at the very edge of the range and so during the summer months our phones don’t always work in the house. Well, they work, but only in certain areas. Or if you stand on one foot, with your hand touching a window and your tongue sticking out. LOL! Seriously, I don’t know to many of my friends who still have to have a land line and really it is a pain. A pain because I never know what number to give someone. If I give them my home number and I am gone and on my cell they can’t reach me. But, if I give my cell number and they call the house I generally can’t talk to them on my cell so I have to call them back from the land line. A huge pain!! Not to mention that we have a very old and outdated phone in our home.
Well, I just have to tell you about my new land line love! I just got the VTech Connect to Cell Phone system and am in love. I wasn’t sure when I got it if I would like it, and I am terrible when it comes to reading directions so I was like.. dang.. how do you… umm… I gotta do what? Well after taking a few minutes and reading I figured it out no problem and now.. well I am in love! (I think I have said that a few times now).
This phone is awesome for many reasons.
1 ~ It is a home phone/land line phone. So you use it as you would use any home phone.
2 ~ It uses Bluetooth to connect to 2 cell phones in the home. So, when your cell phone rings, the home phone rings and you can answer your cell phone with the home phone. I love that!! I set my cell phone on my desk all day where my reception is the best and then when I get a call on it I answer my VTech and talk away. Cool huh ? YUP!
3 ~ You can download your whole contact list, to the VTech phone. That makes for easy calling from home. No more grabbing the cell phone and searching for a contact.
4 ~ You can set up different rings for each phone, or have it play your cell phone ring tone for your cell phone. I about jumped off the couch the other night when hubby got a call on his cell phone, and his ringer is a loud horn. Yikes! Scared me!
5 ~ You can go hands free. It comes with cordless headset. This is the only thing I am not crazy about. It comes with different size ear piece things and non of them hold the headset in place right and when I use the headband piece it isn’t very tight so if I move it flops around. But, I guess 4 our of 5 isn’t bad, right.
