All opinions are my own.</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;"><a href="http://thethriftythings.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/DSC04089.jpg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img alt="DSC04089" class="alignnone wp-image-8376" height="702" src="http://thethriftythings.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/DSC04089-1024x1003.jpg" width="717" /></a><br border-box;" /> My family members are true cell phone junkies.&nbsp; If their phone is not glued to their hand, sending texts, tweeting or holding a conversation, they are running around the house yelling, &ldquo;Has anyone seen my phone? It&rsquo;s (pick one) ringing and I can&rsquo;t find it, on vibrate and I am afraid I am going to miss a call, or was just placed right here and now it&rsquo;s gone.</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;"><a href="http://thethriftythings.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/DSC04090.jpg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img alt="DSC04090" class="alignnone wp-image-8377" height="620" src="http://thethriftythings.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/DSC04090-1024x886.jpg" width="717" /></a></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;">While we haven&rsquo;t joined the revolution of people who have dropped their land line and gone completely to cell phone service, mainly because my elderly father would never figure out how to get in touch with us again,&nbsp; our cell phones get a lot more use than the land line.&nbsp; Truthfully, I missed the convenience of a land line when people called us on our cells.&nbsp; Usually I would forget to charge my phone or miss the call because it was lying in the bottom of my purse.&nbsp; That&rsquo;s when I heard about the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.vtechphones.com/products/product_detail/2353" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Vtech Connect to Cell&nbsp;</a>that allows me to hook my cell phone to my landline phone.&nbsp; (For those of you who have made the switch to total cell service, it works with just cell phones as well.)</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;"><span border-box; font-weight: 700;">Here are my favorite features:</span></p> <ul border-box; margin: 0px 0px 2.6rem 4rem; padding-right: 0px; padding-left: 0px; color: rgb(65, 65, 65); font-family: Arial, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20.4375px;"> <li border-box; list-style-type: disc;"><em border-box;">The Connect to Cell eliminates dead spots.&nbsp; Whenever I use my cell at home I have one spot that drops the call.&nbsp; I always forget this, walk down the hall and find myself talking to myself.&nbsp; By placing the base unit where cellular service is best in my house, I no longer have dropped calls.</em></li> <li border-box; list-style-type: disc;"><em border-box;">Virtual Multiple Line Operation&mdash;We can pair two cell phones and one land line onto one device.&nbsp; Now I never have to miss a call again because I can&rsquo;t find my phone or it&rsquo;s dead.</em></li> <li border-box; list-style-type: disc;"><em border-box;">Hands free Conversations&mdash;I am not a big phone conversationalist, but when I do find a few moments to talk to a friend, it usually stretches to an hour of conversation.&nbsp; While I am talking I am busily doing chores around my house while juggling the headset.&nbsp; Even my most patient friends get annoyed after I drop the phone into the dishwater and cut off our conversation. (This has only happened once, but I do drop the phone into loads of towels I&rsquo;m folding quite often.)</em></li> <li border-box; list-style-type: disc;"><em border-box;">Contact Sharing&mdash;We can chose contacts from our mobile phones to store on the device.</em></li> <li border-box; list-style-type: disc;"><em border-box;">Digital Answering System&mdash;so the kids can leave me messages asking me to run errands or pick something up for them.&nbsp; (Ok, that might not be the best use of the digital answering system.)</em></li> </ul> <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;"><a href="http://thethriftythings.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/DSC04091.jpg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img alt="DSC04091" class="alignnone wp-image-8378" height="570" src="http://thethriftythings.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/DSC04091-1024x814.jpg" width="717" /></a></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;">Have you made the switch from land line to cell? Could you use help finding your phone? What features of the Vtech Connect to Cell appeal to you?</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;">Connect with Vtech on&nbsp;<a href="https://www.facebook.com/VtechPhones" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Facebook</a>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<a href="https://twitter.com/VTechPhones" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Twitter</a>.</p>
