VTech Better Cell Coverage Giveaway

in Cordless Phones, Giveaways, Phones and Mobile, Cell Phones, Blog :: 219 comments

VTech DS6671-3How frustrating is it when you can't get decent cell phone coverage in your own home? The phone works fine in the kitchen, but not your bedroom – you end up with dropped calls and poor sound…grrr.

For the conversations that count, you need reliable reception.

VTech’s DS6671-3 Connect to Cell™ phone system ($99.95 from vtech.com) enables you to make and receive mobile phone calls with your home phone for better sound quality and clarity. And, you get the added benefit of using a comfortable handset or headset for mobile calls.

Connect to Cell takes advantage of the zone in the house with the best cellular coverage, ensuring you don't have to worry about dropped calls anymore. Through a simple one-button Bluetooth pairing process, you'll be able to conduct all your calls through the VTech handset or headset, while your cell phone remains connected and charging. These systems work with or without a landline, so they're great for cellular-only households.

Use up to two cellular lines and one landline with your cordless system. Then, enjoy the freedom to make and receive calls on all three lines – all at once.

Enter through August 22nd, 2014 for your chance to win one of your own!

Official Rules

We will randomly select one (1) winners from the entries. No purchase is necessary to win. One entry per person. The giveaway will end at 11:59pm on August 22nd, 2014. Void where prohibited. U.S. residents only. Click here for the full rules.

Reception

From John Hanson on August 07, 2014 :: 1:00 pm

This would be the greatest thing ever for phone calls at my home!
Currently, I have to walk outside, at least to the driveway, sometimes to the road, to be able to make a phone call without having a dropped call or having to ask the person I’m on call with to repeat themselves multiple times.
With this setup from VTECH, i could actually stay inside the comfort of my own home and make a complete phone call!
This is truly amazing!

Great Idea, but pricey

From Killian Lori on August 07, 2014 :: 1:04 pm

I always check Amazon & Ebay to price compare, and check reviews.  I think this is a great idea…but the price from the vendor is $100 and at Amazon is about $70 for new, and $40 used.

Bad Cell Reception

From Norma Compton on August 07, 2014 :: 1:28 pm

I live a rural area and cell towers are few. Only one carrier that works decent around us. I am tired of the dropped & missed calls. We must move around the house to get reception and it is hard to send or receive text messages. We need help.

From Jeff on August 07, 2014 :: 2:40 pm

It would be nice to come home, plug my cell in and not play with it the rest of the day. Only use this phone if someone calls and leave the cell alone so our family interacts with eachother more.
