It has usually been left wherever the last person placed it instead of on the receiver. If one of the kids used my cell phone, then all bets are off. It could be anywhere in the house. Another favorite (note the sarcasm) is when I am taking an important call and begin pacing through the house. Who knew there were cell phone dead spots in our home? I&rsquo;ll be listening intently when suddenly there&rsquo;s no one on the line.</p> <p border-box; margin: 0px 0px 2.6rem; padding: 0px; color: rgb(65, 65, 65); font-family: Arial, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20.4375px;">I was recently given the opportunity to try the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.vtechphones.com/vtechphones/index.cfm/product-detail/?event=ehCatalog.productDetail&ProductID=1947" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">V-Tech 2 Handset Connect to Cell Phone System&nbsp;</a>equipped with caller id and call waiting. What&rsquo;s different about this phone than my previous land line? I can use it with Bluetooth enabled cell phones to receive calls from my cell phone in addition to using it for my regular land line calls. My husband did warn me that no matter how many phones we have, the kids will continue to misplace them. &nbsp;Little does he know this system is expandable&ndash;I can have up to five handsets with only one wall jack. &nbsp;I&rsquo;ll probably need them all.</p> <div border-box; color: rgb(65, 65, 65); font-family: Arial, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20.4375px;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-SyT6OUy94g8/UCWXO4xagyI/AAAAAAAAP7Q/6gi0Ucyl6tU/s1600/set1.jpg" imageanchor="1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img src="http://cdn-media.vtechphones.com/in-the-news/logos/2012/Aug/back-to-school-with-vtech-connect-to-cell-phone/cell1.jpg" /></a></div> <p border-box; margin: 0px 0px 2.6rem; padding: 0px; color: rgb(65, 65, 65); font-family: Arial, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20.4375px;">Like most moms, I multitask. When I am talking on the phone, I make beds, unload the dishwasher, fold towels and run through a gamut of other chores. It&rsquo;s difficult to maneuver with the phone. I&rsquo;m constantly dropping the phone. One of my friends is so used to this she asks me, &ldquo;Did you drop me again?&rdquo; The answer is usually yes. The V-Tech has a one touch speaker button on the handsets, automatically turning them into speaker phones.</p> <div border-box; color: rgb(65, 65, 65); font-family: Arial, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20.4375px;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-ID5Ie3cxba0/UCWYn8RBzlI/AAAAAAAAP7Y/IoDGjW-ErIE/s1600/set2.jpg" imageanchor="1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img src="http://cdn-media.vtechphones.com/in-the-news/logos/2012/Aug/back-to-school-with-vtech-connect-to-cell-phone/cell2.jpg" /></a></div> <p border-box; margin: 0px 0px 2.6rem; padding: 0px; color: rgb(65, 65, 65); font-family: Arial, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20.4375px;">The V-Tech Connect to Cell is a time saver too. It&rsquo;s capable of storing 200 records from 2 different cell phones. No more having to look up names and numbers. There are plenty of other neat features, like the 50 name and number phonebook directory, the trilingual prompts allow you to choose between English, Spanish or French and the power-conserving technology for optimal battery performance, but I&rsquo;m mainly concerned with how it makes my life easier by connecting my phone systems together. Anything that works to simplify my life is a hit in my book.</p> <p border-box; margin: 0px 0px 2.6rem; padding: 0px; color: rgb(65, 65, 65); font-family: Arial, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20.4375px;">V-Tech phones can be purchased&nbsp;<a href="http://www.vtechphones.com/vtechphones/index.cfm/shop/shop-by-price/30-60/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">online</a>. Right now they are donating $2.00 from each qualifying purchase to the Make A Wish foundation.</p> <p border-box; margin: 0px 0px 2.6rem; padding: 0px; color: rgb(65, 65, 65); font-family: Arial, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20.4375px;"><strong>Pam</strong><br border-box;" /> <span border-box;">I received the above mentioned free product(s) for review purposes.
