The Best Bluetooth Home Phone
The Bluetooth home phone is about to become as ubiquitous as the Bluetooth cell phone. They naturally compliment one another both in terms of convenience and reducing the cost of telephone services. Before too long every cordless phone will be a Bluetooth cordless phone that automatically pairs with our cell phones and Smartphones as soon as we walk in the front door. Vtech lead the pack with a sleek Bluetooth phone that reliably and consistantly pairs with the broadest range of cell phones, but Panasonic has now released a serious competitor that is achieving impressive reviews.
The Case for the Bluetooth Cordless Phone
On arriving home cell phones automatically pair with a cordless phone system. They can be left on a desktop or plugged into a charger as long as they are within Bluetooth range i.e. 25-30 feet from the base station. Once they are paired, it becomes possible to make or answer cell phone calls using cordless handsets.
The pick of the crop are Panasonic's Link-to-Cell Bluetooth Phones.
The benefits of this technology include:
1. Calls to cell phones can be answered from any one of several cordless handsets located throughout a house or apartment.
2. Cordless handsets are typically more comfortable to use than cell phones. When at home most of us like to relax and enjoy leisurely phone conversations rather than juggle with a cell phone.
3. As there is no need to handle a cell phone once it has paired with a Bluetooth home phone, it can sit in its charging cradle even while cell phone calls are being made. It will remain fully charged and ready to go at any time.
4. They are usually either 5.8 phones or DECT Bluetooth phones. DECT 6.0 phones are immune to interference from WiFi, they provide excellent handset range and extended talk-time. They also emit far less electromagnetic radiation than cell phones.
5. By enabling cell phone calls to be made from a regular cordless handset, it becomes more convenient to use free cell phone minutes. In fact many users elect to have their landlines disconnected and make all of their calls over cellular networks. In so doing they can achieve a return on investment within a few months.
Are there any catches?
1. While nearly all Bluetooth home phones allow two cell phones to be paired, it's usually the case that only one outgoing line can be used at a time. It's a limitation, but usually not a show stopper.
2. Most of the available options allow at least two active Bluetooth phones to be paired, but there are some that will only pair with one cell phone at a time.
