Alternatives to Connect Your Home Phone
Keep your home or small business connected for less. And you can keep your number!

Landline
The simplest way to make and receive calls at home is to use your cell phone.  You could just carry it around the house in your pocket, unless you lose it in the couch.  Or you can make your cell phone perform as a convenient "home" phone with an adapter that connects to handsets throughout your home...no pocket needed! Prices for the cell phone base unit range from $29 to $150 and the monthly fee is already included in your cell phone. Some models work even if your cell phone is lost, broken or dead.

Wireless Home Phone
You get a box that connects wirelessly to a nearby cellular site. You then plug a regular corded telephone into the box, or connect it to your household wiring through any nearby phone jack, or into a cordless phone base that connects to one or more cordless handsets throughout the house.  Prices for a wireless home phone range from $20 to $100 and monthly service varies from $10 to $30 per month.

The landline has had decades of improvements to make this connection to your home phone rock solid.  Prices for a basic landline range from $10 to $100 per month but most features cost extra.

Wireless Home Phone
Unless you live in a one-room apartment, there are several advantages of maintaining multi-room access to phone service: safety, security and convenience top the list.  Nearly every home in the US is wired for such service, but with multiple cordless phone sets even that isn't necessary.

For the simplest Home Phone, cell phones by themselves are woefully inconvenient because they're almost never nearby when a call comes in.  They also run out of battery at the worst possible time, and they're notorious for dropping calls in rooms where signal strength is poor.  We found ways to make your cell phone work as your home phone work without paying more than necessary.
