Cell Home

Use your cellphone connection via your existing home phones

For all those people who'd like to ditch their home telephone service, but don't like having to use that tiny cellphone all the time comes this "device". The device would serve to power-up the phones in your house and use the cell connection to talk over. It would enable you to use the comfortable phones that you are used to being able to hold up to your head with your shoulder while multitasking around the house. The interface could be either a cradle for an existing phone, or a stand alone box with its own cellphone circuitry built in.

       Nokia had a device where you plug a cellphone into it and then can use the home phone. I think it's baked.   

       I use the device in the link for a handsfree -- and it also plugs into a regular cordless handset.

       I love it [+].   

       I'd like an oldfashioned, black hard rubber, faux rotary dial cell phone for the den.

       like that theircompetitor but it would plug into a phone jack and do the signaling that way instead of using adaptors and special phones

       two devices, Cell Socket and Dock-n-Talk, do this. I had the same idea and, unfortunately, found these.
