There has always been something about technology that draws me in. I love all kinds of gadgets and gizmos. My husband picks on me because I own too many. One thing that I have waited to try is a VTech Connect to Cell Phone. You basically have a home phone that connects to cell phone. Sounds pretty awesome, right?!?
I am excited to share my new VTech Connect to Cell Phone with you. For some odd reason we have two places in our house where we lose cell phone coverage. It never fails, I’m walking around chatting on my cell phone – BAM my call gets dropped! It gets irritating. My new VTech Connect to Cell phone as eliminated that problem. I say home phone because it’s my home phone that works with my cell phone to help make my life less stressful, and more comfortable. Not to mention I can get more done with the hands free headset.
The VTech Connect to Cell™ phone- 2 Handset Connect to Cell™ Answering System with Cordless Headset is an awesome creation. In today’s world so many people have ditched their landline phones, and started using cell phones. I am one of them, but there are things I miss about my land-line. I tend to lose my cell phone, my daughter sets it down somewhere, and I miss calls left and right. It is stressful missing a work related because your two-year old daughter decided to sneak off with your cell phone.
We set the VTech phone up two days ago. When I first opened the box I have to admit I was a little overwhelmed by all the pieces, but once we started putting everything together I calmed down. The VTech Connect to Cell phone comes with easy to read. We had everything set up in working in about 15 minutes. It comes with two handsets, one headset, three ear hooks, an ear pad, 4 ear buds, telephone line cord, head band, power adapter, batteries, handset charger, and telephone base.
We placed the main telephone base in my office, and the other in the living room. Which means no more searching for the phone, or missing important business calls. I am able to easily make and receive calls without making a mad dash to find my cell phone.
Thanks to my VTech Connect to Cell™ phone- 2 Handset Connect to Cell™ Answering System with Cordless Headset I don’t have to worry about dead spots anymore. I can connect not one, but two cell phones and a landline, download contacts for both phones, and store up to 2000 records from two different cell phones. Then you are ready to make and receive calls on all three lines.
The VTech Connect to Cell phone allows me to fold laundry, do dishes, play with the kids, or anything else that requires the use of both hands, thanks to the hands-free headset. I spend some of the day using the hands-free headset, sound was crisp and clear, easy to use, comfortable, and works perfectly.
Another fun perk is the Ringtone Share feature. This allows you to set your cordless phone to play your iPhone (iOS4.1 or later) ringtone. We connect my cell phone and my husband’s cell phone, and assigned them each a unique ringtone. Which makes it easy to tell if the phone call is for me, or Shawn.
You can also enjoy great features such as:
- HD Audio Power Conserving Technology
- Up to 14 minutes of digital recording time
- Call screening remote access
- Digital answering system
- Time and date stamp when you check your messages
- Any key answer
- Last 10 number redial
- English, Spanish, or French
- Message retrieval from handset
- Call waiting
All you need to connect your Connect to Cell™ phone- 2 Handset Connect to Cell™ Answering System with Cordless Headset is cellular service on a compatible Bluetooth technology-enable cell phone. The Connect to Cell phone uses Bluetooth technology to connect to your cell phone, which enables users to make and receive phone calls with the VTech device.
Another fun feature is push-to-talk. You can directly broadcast messages from one handset to the speakerphone of one or multiples handsets. I scared my daughter using the feature the first time, lol. I really didn’t know what it did, until I heard a knock at my bedroom door. It’s was my oldest daughter, Catie. She was a little freaked out because someone was talking in the living room, lol. I forgot to tell her we had these new super cool phones.
Oh, and the intercom is also an awesome feature. You can use the intercom feature for conversations between two handsets. While I’m in my bedroom folding laundry, I can use the intercom, and ask my kids to let the dog out. Okay, that and pick on them. I called into the living room today, and asked my daughter if she had seen the goat… That’s exactly what she said… Nothing, she thinks mom is going crazy because we don’t own a goat, and if we did it better not be in the house, lol. I love technology, don’t you!
