VTech Better Cell Coverage Giveaway

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.

This would be a Godsend!

From LAGraham on August 07, 2014 :: 5:19 pm

My home is made of cinderblocks and has an aluminum roof. The combination makes cell phone reception horrible.  This would be a Godsend, particularly when my arthritis is acting up and it’s difficult to get around to a spot with better reception near a window - which has its own disadvantages:  hotter in summer, colder in winter.

If Only!

From Micki S on August 07, 2014 :: 6:36 pm

I even got a cell signal booster from my cellular company since I couldn’t walk from the living room to the bathroom without losing service!  (And my place is tiny.)  And I *still* have problems even with the booster.  Drives me crazy.  Crazy, I tell you!!!!  A V-Tech Connect to Cell system would solve that problem as well as the fact that my old cordless home phone system is so old that even the new set of re-chargeable batteries I purchased a few years ago are dying ... along with the phones.

Searching for Signal

Boonies Problem

From Robin Bullock on August 07, 2014 :: 8:09 pm

We live in a very remote and rural area in Colorado with erratic cell coverage. The VTech ‘Connect to Cell’ phone system would help stop us from experiencing dropped calls. It happens with fustrating regularity.

From Dawn Waggoner on August 07, 2014 :: 8:44 pm

I live 10 miles from town and I have to drive 7 of those miles to get service (sometimes I can text from home, but not reliably). How exciting it would be for me to actually get what I’m paying AT&T for every month!!

From Julie on August 07, 2014 :: 11:11 pm

They live in the country and their cell reception is poor. If this can help, it would be awesome, since the landline there is faulty and if something goes wrong, they could be days without a phone.

From Shawna on August 08, 2014 :: 6:29 am

I love this idea! I live in the mountains and there isn’t much coverage there. I have to stand in front of a bay window, facing east, holding my mouth right and I can talk on my cell. If it truly works, this would be an amazing find!

Love this.  I have so much problems with coverage at my home.  I have to stand near the back windows of my house with my cell.  If I walk to far in the center of my home the call drops.
Thanks Techlicious for always giving us great tech advice.

We didn’t get a landline when we moved and sometimes it’s hard to sprint across the house when we hear our cell phones ring to answer a call. Having a few more handsets would be so helpful.

My current phone is awful.  It cuts us off about 50% of the time.  This new V-tech phone will help me stay in contact with callers and not have to waste time calling them back.
