Using the cell phone as a handset for a cordless phone system?
Hi- I am not sure where to post this question, but I figure if anybody can answer this question, it will most likely be a SDer in this forum. I was wondering if there is such a cordless (home) phone system that would allow you to use your cell phone as an additional handset, i.e., when people call your homephone number, you would be able to pick up and answer through your cell phone (without consuming your cell phone minutes, that is). I was about to buy one of those link-to-cell phone system such as the Panasonic KX-TG7643M, but I think they actually have it the other way around; when people call your cell phone number, you can answer through your cordless phone handset (so that your nasty roommate can answer the all the private calls intended for your cell phone).
Maybe I am the only person in the world who is more likely to be closer to my cellphone than my homephone when I am at home, and find it sometimes more convenient to use my cellphone as a landline phone. Can someone please enlighten me (or give me the number for a good psychiatrist if that is the case)? Thank you very much!
Port home phone to Google Voice, set up both home phone and cell phone for simultaneous ring. You are done.
Additional advantage, a call to Google voice rings both Home phone and cell phone, pick up cell, move close to home phone, press '*' , home phone will ring, pick up home phone, hang up cell, continue the conversation, Save cell minutes.
PS: I dont know if Google Voice will be free in 2013, so would recommend that you wait for some time till the announcement is made.
