For a long time home cordless phones that hook up to “old fashioned” telephone lines had not changed in any significant way. They haven’t become much smaller, battery life is probably as good as it is going to get and in most instances the range is more than enough for even large households. On the other hand, there has been an ever faster advance in mobile cell phone devices with a whole range of smartphones available now. But there has been some recent development in that you can now get a Bluetooth cordless phone, which does give you some pretty cool new features.
The first great advantage is that you can use pretty much any standard Bluetooth hands free headset with your home phone system as well. If you tend to use a hands free system in your car in the form of a small in ear headset, then it makes perfect sense to use the very same device with your home telephone system as well. Having the ability to use a cordless phone hands free is very convenient especially when you are busy at your computer, with kids or just simply doing some other household tasks.
With the majority of standard cordless handsets you will only be able to use a wired headset and then you have to also make sure that you have a cordless phone with a headset jack. While this is better than trying to pin the headset between your ear and shoulder causing you to get a pain in your neck, having the ability to go completely wireless is definitely a plus.
By far the best advantage of a cordless phone with Bluetooth technology is that it will allow you to synchronize your smartphone with your home telephone system. You might wonder why this would be of benefit, but there are some really great ways that this becomes convenient.
If you are like me, you will arrive home and put your cellphone and keys down and get on with every day household tasks. It happens very often that I don’t return to my iPhone until an hour or so later to see that I have missed a call. By integrating the iPhone with the home telephone system, the cordless headset will pick up any incoming cell calls so that all calls come to one device.
This is especially convenient if you tend to plug in your smartphone once you get home to get a full charge ready for the next day. You then do not need keep your cellphone charging close to where you are, as all incoming cell calls will cause your home telephone to ring. The cordless telephone will also indicate that the call is coming over Bluetooth so that you know exactly what connection you are answering.
A Bluetooth cordless phone can give you some really great new technology set up that really integrates your smartphone with your home phone system. If you still have the need for the reliable quality of a wired phone line then it makes perfect sense for you to integrate your cell phones into that system. By simply synchronizing through Bluetooth technology in your smartphone and cordless home phone and then make and receive calls on your cordless phone through your cell phone connection.
