There are not many products in this vast world that I get totally excited, but this is one of them. First off let me set the scene. I live in a very rural area in the Western North Carolina Mountains. When I say I have spotty cell phone service I literally I have to stand at one spot with my tongue out, just to receive a call. This one area is a small corner in my house. It gets to be a pain to try to answer calls on my cell throughout the day, but this is the number that I give out for my blog. This is where the new V-Tech 2 Handset Connect to Cell™ Phone with Caller ID/Call Waiting comes in.
I have used this phone now for about two weeks and have fallen madly in love with it. Not only is it easy to connect any Bluetooth enabled cellphone, but the sound on the calls are crystal clear. Here are a couple of facts about the Connect to Cell phone.
Make and receive landline and cellular callsConnect to BLUETOOTH®-enabled cellular phones to make and receive cellular calls with the ease and comfort of a home phone system. Avoid the mad dash to catch your cellular call before it goes to voicemail.
Take advantage of your home’s strongest cellular signalJust place the base unit where cellular reception is best, then enjoy the freedom to make and receive cell calls using your cordless handsets anywhere in your home.
Download and store your cell phone directoryStore 1000 records from up to two different cell phones; no need to input names and numbers into your cordless phone system.
Mobile NotificationsKnow when your Android mobile phone receives a text, e-mail or social media update. Each handset beeps and displays which kind of message was received. You can also receive calendar reminders through the system.
Virtual Multi-Line OperationEnjoy the freedom to make and receive a landline and cellular call—at the same time.
Digital answering systemWith up to 25 minutes of recording time, the digital answering system grabs calls when you can
Features ever, there are more. Once you have connected your phone to the V-Tech you also can be informed when you receive a text message or email. To use this system you must have an Android phone and download the app via Google Play (free Connect to Cell app). I did not test this feature out, because I have an iPhone, but I can imagine how well it works.
In a few short minutes you can have your new V-Tech phone up and running. I placed the main base in that one spot where I do have just a tad bit of cell service and keep the cellphone (iphone) near the base. The second phone is in the kitchen, which makes it nice when cooking. Since receiving this phone, I have had no dropped calls, nor do I have to stick my tongue out just right to get a call. Connecting the cellphone to the V-Tech base is really simple. Just hit the cellphone button on the base and connect!
I highly recommend checking out this phone if you have spotty cell service at the home. Heck, even if you have service at your house, I would recommend checking this phone out. It also comes with a cordless headset. I did not think this would really come in handy for me, but it has. I connected my iphone in no time and with little hassle. You can purchase the V-Tech 2 Handset Connect to Cell™ Phone with Caller ID/Call Waiting for $59.95 on their site. This has to be about my favorite phone ever.
