The boost in call quality is one of the biggest reasons why I liked using the phone. I was able to leave my cell phone in the kitchen where the signal strength is strongest. But I was able to make calls using the VTech phone from my home office on the other side of the house. The VTech system comes with two wireless handsets, which makes it convenient to find a phone if you have a larger home.
I also liked that my cell phone battery got a break while I used the VTech phone. I just left my cell phone connected to a charger and used the VTech phone for all my calls. That way, my cell phone battery was still at the max when I needed to leave the house. Before I had the VTech phone, I would usually drain my cell phone’s battery after a few conference calls.

You can use the handsets as an intercom. If my husband is in the back of the house, out of earshot, I can ring him on the other handset and we can chat back and forth.
If one of us is on a call and the other needs to make a call, the other handset is set for the other cell phone and CAN be used even though one is already in use. I can either make my call using the Cell 2 button or I can join in on his call and talk to the person on the other end too. That is really cool.
I keep my cell phone in my purse most of the time and I either don’t hear it when it rings or I don’t get to it in time. So by having these handsets that are connected to my smartphone, I can keep my phone in my purse and still answer or make calls using the handsets. They are the same size as a regular cordless phone and are fairly comfortable to hold. If I need hands free conversation, there are 2 options for that too! I can either set the base to use as a speakerphone or I can simply put on the included Bluetooth headset and talk away. I LOVE VTECH CONNECT TO CELL™ PHONE!!!!

VTech CS6419-2 are pretty neat, in my opinion. They're DECT 6.0 technology, which means they operate at the 1.9 GHz spectrum band, meaning they won't be interfering with (or be interfered by) your other wireless devices. They have the ability to transfer calls between each other, which is useful if one phone's battery is getting low and you want to switch to the other handheld without dropping your call. (This can also be useful when you have one phone located downstairs in the living room and another other upstairs in the bedroom. When you answer the living room phone only to find out it's your in-laws asking to speak with your wife, you can transfer the call to your bedroom phone, where your wife has been reading and watching her favorite TV series.
Harold tells me the digital phone he's using has far superior sound quality to any cell phone he's used thus far. He plugs his digital phone into a box he purchased from Skype, which enables him to use his Skype account to call any cell phone or landline phone (or to receive calls from either). This solution didn't work so well with a cheap digital phone he had, though, so he recommends buying one that rates well on sound quality. "It's not worth buying the cheapest digital phones available only to find that you'd be better off using a straight string tied to two cans," he says. (I seem to have a vague memory of what he's referring to with the cans, but when it comes to Harold, one never knows.)

The 2 Handset Connect to Cell™ Answering System with Cordless Headset is awesome! This system has nearly anything that you can imagine on a phone. It comes with a main docking station with a cordless handset and an answering machine, as well as a place to store and charge the cordless headset! It comes with an extra base that does not need to be plugged into a telephone jack, just a power outlet. This phone has the added feature of allowing cell phone calls to be received to the system. I have used this phone and it works so well. All phone calls have been clear on both the handsets and the headset. We have used our cell phones through the system as well without problem! If you are looking for a very affordable system with great functionality… then this is the system you need!

I like this product! It is so nice to be able to talk hands free while making dinner or doing chores, and not have to scramble to find my cell phone! Let's face it, no one calls when you are sitting there ready to answer, it always rings when you're engrossed in something!

The VTech Connect to Cell home phone system is loaded with great features and the biggest feature that caught my attention is that it is BLUETOOTH enabled so that I can use the home phone system to make calls through my cell phone. No more worrying about dropped calls from being in the middle of the woods! I've been using the system for a couple of weeks now and I haven't had a single dropped call.
Another cool feature of the VTech Connect to Cell home phone system is that I can program the home phone to ring with my iPhone ringtone - how fun! My husband and I can import our phonebooks from our cell phones to the VTech Connect to Cell so we can have all of our important numbers programmed right into our home phone for convenience. My husband does some of his work from home and having his important numbers right on the home phone makes working at home so much easier for him – especially if his cell phone is out of juice.

With the VTech system, I can answer my cell phone through the handset so I will never lose a call. It is almost impossible to lose the call since my cell phone is charging where the reception is the best! Plus, I can still receive calls from my home number as well.
It is a plus to be able to use two cell phones through Bluetooth and one land line on the VTech system. Since we have two cell phones and a land line, it works perfectly for us. It also come with two bases so one lives in our living room and one in our back room. With a land line in the bedroom, we have great coverage all over the house.

Well I have a solution to the call drops and bad cell reception. VTech Connect to Cell cordless phone system. This has been a life saver in our house! It's really simple to use. You place the base unit of your VTech cordless phone in an area of the home that has the best cell reception. From there you can program your new VTech cordless phone to your cell phone so that your cordless phone rings every time your cell phone rings.

There is nothing worse than having a great conversation and then losing the call because you hit a dead spot in your house that has bad cell service. This has happened to me countless times at my house and it is the most annoying thing ever.
I have been on important conference calls only to have them disconnected. VTech has eliminated this problem by creating the Connect to Cell™ phone system.

I missed the convenience of a land line when people called us on our cells. Usually I would forget to charge my phone or miss the call because it was lying in the bottom of my purse. That's when I heard about the Vtech Connect to Cell that allows me to hook my cell phone to my landline phone.
