5 Reasons Home Phones Are Still a Necessity

Cutting the cord for landline phones and opting to use only a mobile phone might make sense for some people but here’s the thing – it’s a good idea to still have a traditional, landline phone or at least a home phone that helps maximize your cell phone. Here are five reasons why.

1. No More Dead Zones

Many people work from home these days, and we need a reliable phone for conference calls and other business calls. You don’t want to be THAT person who walks into a dead zone and drops a call in the middle of an important team discussion and has to hop back in later to see what you’ve missed. EEK. Now when I take cell phone calls from home I use my VTech DS6521-2 Connect to Cell™ cordless phone, which connects to my mobile phone allowing me to maximize call quality and reception throughout every room in the house.

2. Cutting Costs but Not Quality

Let’s face it, we’re still climbing out of a recession and cutting costs wherever possible to save money. One of the best things about VTech’s DS6521-2 phone system is that you can cut back on landline costs without skimping on landline convenience. You don’t even need a landline number to use the phone so it’s perfect for cellular only households. You can simply pair it wirelessly with your cell phone via Bluetooth and then use your mobile account for making and receiving calls on the VTech handset at home, while still taking advantage of the awesome benefits of a home phone. This way your cell stays where it has the best reception and you won’t have to worry about any more dropped calls, dead zones or draining cell batteries – holler!

3. Organization, Organization, Organization!

I don’t know about you, but my contacts are my lifeblood. Unfortunately, I’m not the most organized, so I keep different contact lists saved in different places. I know, this is not super efficient (we’re all a work in progress). One of the things I can appreciate most about the VTech DS6521-2 phone system is its ability to easily pair and store up to 200 contacts from two different cell phones. No more digging for my cell phone or phone lists when I need to make a quick business call at home.

4. Speakerphone Capability and Intercom Between Handsets

Top quality audio features, such as DECT 6.0 digital technology, puts VTech phones ahead of cell phones when it comes to placing calls on speakerphone. Some voices get muffled on speakerphone, almost to a Charlie-Brown-teacher degree, but not VTech’s.

This model even has an intercom feature between handsets!

5. They Make Great Holiday Gifts

Bonus – these phones are budget-friendly and a great way to stay connected to friends and family throughout the holiday season and long after. With the VTech DS6521-2 phone system you can give the gift of staying connected, since we all know what it’s like not wanting to miss those important family calls on Christmas!

We need to stay as connected as possible these days, so it only makes sense to improve your communication by considering a home phone that can optimize your cell phone and expand its overall coverage and benefits.
