Why to own a Home Phone Connect 3 ? Why do you want a landline? I can think of a few reasons. Reliable 911, for one. A line that works during power outages. Something with a consistent location that you can’t lose. Better voice quality than cellular. A line for faxing, medical devices, point-of-sale, or home security systems.
Lets you use landline phones without a landline.
Phone Connect 3 fixed wireless voice terminal uses Bluetooth to connect up to two mobile phones and allow inbound cell phone calls to ring on a customer's home or office phone handset simultaneously along with the cell phone. This spares the user from having to search for their mobile phone when a call comes in because the call can be answered on a landline phone, which is often attached to the wall, sitting on a desk or located somewhere else that is easily accessible.
Physical Design and Setup
The Phone Connect 3 is a silver box, designed by Huawei, that measures 5.4 by 5.4 by 1.2 inches (HWD) and weighs 14.1 ounces with all of its parts on. It has a 1.8-inch LCD on the front with some slightly confusing navigation buttons below; the interface lets you do things like turn on the device's Bluetooth (more on that below), update the software, and check the phone number. There's a USB port, but it's for diagnostics only. Setup is easy. Screw on the large antenna, pop in the battery, plug it in, and you're ready to go. There are two standard RJ-11 phone jacks in the back (although the Connect only supports one number). I plugged a VTech cordless phone in and had a dial tone within seconds.
Performance and Features
Why do you want a landline? I can think of a few reasons. Reliable 911, for one. A line that works during power outages. Something with a consistent location that you can't lose. Better voice quality than cellular. A line for faxing, medical devices, point-of-sale, or home security systems.The Phone Connect 3 succeeds on a few of those points. You'll always know where it is, it has a 911 address attached to it, and the 36-hour backup battery will help in short power outages.
It's a useful device to have
There are circumstances where the Phone Connect 3 could be very useful. For instance, if your office is under construction, and you have no access to a landline phone or Internet, and you still need to make a lot of business calls, you can port your number over to one of these boxes.
