Like most families, we own a few cell phones in our home and we rely on them quite a bit. I know that, personally, I need to be able to count on my cell phone whether I am at home or away. I seems as though when I am out, I am typically talking, texting, tweeting, posting to Facebook, or uploading pictures to Instagram. All of this eventually drains my battery. So, when I am home, my cell phone needs to be plugged into a wall charging. The VTech Connect to Cell System allows me take a make calls from my cell phone… without actually having it in my hand or even near me.
The VTech Connect to Cell™ system is loaded with plenty of benefits for your family as well as mine. I have the VTech DS6511-2 that comes with two hand sets and includes Caller ID/Call Waiting. Connecting my cell phone to my VTech System is incredibly easy. Your phone simply needs to have Bluetooth capabilities. Connecting the devices allows you to share your contacts from your cellular device to the VTech Connect to Cell System. Not to mention, you can even connect two mobile devices to the Connect to Cell System so that it funnels two cell phone numbers into one system.

Hi friends! It's another installment of Technology Tuesday and today we're talking about the VTech Connect-To-Cell Phone System! So I have a confession – or maybe it's more of a triumphant yell? But I have ONLY owned a cell phone for years. That's right – no landline. For years. In fact I think since I bought my own place back in 2004, how crazy is that? So all these years I have just gotten by with my cell phone. We're good friends. But I have to admit – there are things I miss about ‘ole mister landline. Shhh! Don't tell my cell phone, she's finicky and I don't want her to start acting up. But I have found the most perfect solution – one that doesn't replace my cell phone, but instead becomes its BFF – the VTech Connect-To-Cell Phone System!
With this amazing VTech technology you can now PAIR your cell phone to the system for optimal signal and convenience with two handsets! The system can work through your cell carrier (without a landline service) or in conjunction with the service. Now you can enjoy the ease and functionality of your cell phone with the quality and security of a landline! Woop woop! And seriously, since I telecommute a number of days for my day job this phone really is the most amazing solution.

Thank goodness for the Vtech Connect to Cell phone system. Instead of dropped calls, I can grab the phone and talk to her. I can hear her clear as day and be there for her when she needs me. Vtech Connect to Cell is a hand held set that uses Bluetooth technology to connect to my cell phone.
It looks just like a landline phone, except for the awesome extras. The Vtech phone I received has 2 handsets, a lighted keypad (for those late night calls), answering machine, speakerphone, and caller ID among other extras. With the two handsets I can connect two cell phones (my husband’s and mine).
The Vtech Connect to Cell system saves battery life on our cell phones, can be used as an intercom between the 2 handsets and stores my contacts from my cell.

I see a couple of major advantages after testing out the VTech Connect to Cell system. First, many of us have given up our landlines in favor of our smartphone. Who needs that additional telephone bill for a service you’re not really using. We always had a VTech cordless phone for our land line, now the VTech Connect to Cell system now gives us multiple handsets just like we had before. My wife and I can talk with our family together without hovering over one cell phone speaker. Second, I can transfer all my cell phone contacts into this VTech Connect to Cell phone. At the touch of a button, I can call anyone on my cell phone contact list. Very convenient.
The VTech Connect to Cell two handset system is reasonably priced for a home phone (starting around $50), enhance the cell phone experience in the home, and is a great option for those without a landline. Two different models both connect with up to two cellphones and store up to 200 cellphone directory entries, so mobile calls are accessible from the comfort of a cordless handset. Users can add up to five handsets on both models, effectively ending the mad dash to find the cellphone, because the call can be answered from any of the handsets. An added benefit for those who like a central home answering machine for landline calls, one model comes with a digital answering system with up to 14 minutes of recording time.

Whether you live in the city or the sticks one thing’s for sure – you’re not guaranteed good cell service. Sure you can stand in one spot for an entire phone call but I prefer not to. Instead I find myself twisting and contorting and doing my best to stay in that perfect position long enough to complete a phone call. Long gone are the days of landlines in my home, so cell phones are our only option.
This is where I tell you about that awesome chic geek gadget that has saved my life. Well, at least my sanity. It’s the VTech Connect to Cell phone system and it frees me up to move around. I don’t have to play master contortionists to talk on the phone anymore. I don’t have to sit by my cell day in and day out to hear it ring. The VTech Connect to Cell phone system allows me to use my cell service with the convenience of a cordless phone.
If you can activate the bluetooth on your phone you can set up the VTech Connect to Cell phone system without any problems. If you need help there’s easy to follow, step-by-step directions included as well as tech support being just a phone call away.

You connect your cell phone to Bluetooth and you have the ease and comfort of a home phone system! I just place the base in the area where I get the best service (kitchen) and then use the phone's cordless handset anywhere in the house! preferably away from noisy kids.
I also love that you can download to it your cell phone directory.
Right now we only have two handsets..but you can add up to five! That way you can avoid the mad dash to pick up the cell when it rings... and have a handset in a few of the rooms! I'm always running trying to find my cell...only to miss the call.

VTech’s newest phone, Connect to Cell, has brought us the solutions we need to combine the traditional feel of a land line with the freedom of our cell phones.
The new Connect to Cell phone allows up to two cell phones to connect to a base via blue tooth. When you pick up the handset of the base, you can choose which cell line you’d like to use to make a call. And, when a call comes in on one of the cell phone lines, the display area on the handset tells you which line.
It’s very handy. Now, no matter what the situation, we’ll be able to have a phone. We can use the handset of the VTech phone or we can simply use our cell phones. It’s a perfect marriage of two types of phones.

Now you don’t have to worry about cell phone dead spots in the home, dropped calls, or even a missed call because you can’t locate your mobile. This has happened to me too many times and glad that we have this new VTech system in the house so this won’t happen anymore. Unless of course, I want it to go to voicemail after seeing who is calling. Isn’t it nice to see who is calling through!

When I was able to check out the VTech 2 Handset Connect To Cell Answering System with Cordless Headset, I was very excited!! Could this mean I could now not worry about cell reception where we live??
My absolute favorite feature (besides not having dropped calls anymore or bad reception) is the hands free headset it comes with. With a fussy baby and two busy kids, this mama has NO time to sit and talk on the phone, let alone hold one in my hand while trying to get everything else done. So the cordless headset is my favorite feature!!! LOVE.
