Verizon Home Phone Connect Overview (New Version)

Most American homes still have a traditional wired land-line phone, and most of these households also have cell phone accounts. If you’d like to cut the cost of the wired home phone, last year Verizon Wireless introduced the Home Phone Connect that lets you do just that. Now Verizon has a new version of the Home Phone Connect that delivers the same features in a much smaller package.

Once you understand what it does and how it works, the Verizon Home Phone Connect is easy to connect and use. Since it uses Verizon’s wireless network, it has certain advantages that you can’t get in a wired phone line.

The Verizon Wireless Home Phone Connect has two connectors on the back that are compatible with standard desk/wall phones. The keys to solving the reliability puzzle include a high-gain antenna and an upgraded cellular transmitter, which is much more powerful than a typical cell phone’s transmitter. With the higher-performance antenna and more powerful internals, the Verizon Wireless Home Phone Connect can punch through when a typical cell phone might drop the call.

With the Verizon Wireless Home Phone Connect, you use your home phone as you always have: Pick it up and get a dial tone, then dial the call and hear the standard Touch-Tone beeps. You receive calls just as you always have, and your desk phone will ring in the same way that it’s done for years. You can even connect the Verizon Wireless Home Phone Connect to your home’s internal phone wiring, as long as you disconnect your home’s internal wiring from the land-line wire now leading to your home.

One other interesting capability of the Verizon Wireless Home Phone Connect is that you can travel with it. If you take two weeks at the beach every year, you can pack the Verizon Wireless Home Phone Connect with you and have your home phone number at the beach cottage. Likewise, you can use it at a second home or any other location where you get Verizon Wireless reception – where ever the Verizon Wireless Home Phone Connect is, that’s where your home phone is. This “home phone” flexibility will definitely appeal to some people. Take a look at the video to the above-right to see the Verizon Wireless Home Phone Connect and how it operates.

    My mom has the wireless home phone connect. We have had nothing but trouble with it from the start. Has had horrible tin can sound and have talked to Verizon reps more times than I can count. The last conversation they told me they would call in three days and months later I have still not received my call. The sound of this phone is better, but nowhere near perfect. My major question is how do I adjust the ring…when calling her the phone rings anywhere between two and four times before it rings in her home…many of her callers have asked her what took her so long to answer (thinking she wasn’t home some have hung up). Is there a way to adjust this so she can live with this until her two year contract is up and she can go back to a land line?
