Saving You From The Phone Dash – VTech Connect to Cell

August 01, 2013

Ring, ring.

Oh no, I’m expecting a call. And I’m upstairs. And my phone is downstairs.

Quick. Set the toddler down. Close the gate so she stays upstairs. Grab the handrail and sprint down the stairs hoping not to trip on anything sitting on the stairs.

Blaloop.

And missed the call.

Darn it.

Not anymore. We are now using the VTech Connect to Cell. We can have one upstairs and one downstairs. It easily connected to 2 cell phones via bluetooth in record time (seriously, push a button on he main phone base, and turn the bluetooth on our your cell phone). Then they connect. You can see on the phone they are connected because you’ll see the bluetooth symbol and the 1 and/or 2 depending on which phone is connected.

We don’t have any dead zones in our house, but I know a lot people near me do. So you can set your cell phone in a place where you are certain to get service, and then connect it to the  VTech Connect to Cell and you now have the same response as having a landline, but without one. If you do have a landline, you can also set it up to the phone as well. (We don’t have one, so it says “no line.”

When you receive a call on your cell phone, the   VTech Connect to Cell also rings and tells you which phone the call is coming from. You can also sync your contacts so their name shows up as well (only 200). Thus ending your mad dash to find and answer your phone.

To recap, some of the great features:

  • Make and Receive Landline and Cellular Calls Connect to BLUETOOTH® wireless technology-enabled cellular phones to make and receive cellular calls with the ease and comfort of a home phone system. Avoid the mad dash to catch a cellular call before it goes to voicemail.
  • Eliminate Cell Phone Dead Spots at Home Just place the base unit where cellular reception is best. Then enjoy the freedom to make and receive cell calls using your cordless handsets anywhere in your home.
  • Download and Store Your Cell Phone Directory Store 200 directories from up to two different cell phones; no need to input names and numbers into your phone.

Check out the Connect to Cell website to see if it might be a good solution for you.

How often do you do the mad dash to find your phone and answer it, only to miss the call?
