Thanks to Verizon Home Phone Connect, you can connect your home phone to Verizons CDMA network without having to change your phone number. The even better part Home Phone Connect allows you to make and receive calls like you would on a traditional land line, and it even works during a dreaded power outage. Just like with a landline, you'll continue to have caller ID, call forwarding, three-way calling, and call waiting. GPS allows you to have the same 911 support you'd have on a traditional landline phone. Home phone transfer has never been easier with Verizon Home Phone Connect.
LED indicators for signal strength and when a message is waiting (view larger).
Easy to set up and does not require additional software or internet services (view larger).
Two RJ-11 interface jacks for telephone connection and removable antenna
What is Home Phone Connect?
Home Phone Connect (HPC) uses a wireless solution that provides a convenient and cost-efficient alternative to the traditional landline phone service. Tired of having multiple phone bills? With HPC, you will receive one bill for all Verizon Wireless services. The device provides two telephone ports and uses the same number, so you can keep your existing home phone. To get started, plug one end of a telephone cable (RJ11) into a port and the other end into the back of a home phone or base unit.
How It Works
Customers porting in their home number will not be able to receive calls until the porting process is completed (2 -10 business days). To make and receive calls, the home telephone should be connected directly to the telephone jack until the porting process is complete.
To Make Calls
To Receive Calls
Caller ID, call waiting, call forwarding, 3-way calling, voicemail, access to 411 / 611 / 911, last number callback, and international calling available.
Certain home security systems may not be compatible with HPC because they require landline telephone connectivity. Make sure you tell customers that many home security providers offer options for a wireless communication feature that bypasses landline telephone connectivity. Customers should check with their home security provider for compatibility requirements of their specific system. Below is a list of other incompatibilities.
This device weighs 11.6 ounces, measures (H) 1.4 x (W) 5.4 x (D) 4.2 inches, and has an AC-to-DC switching power supply (voltage: 90-300 VAC). The HPC also has a backup battery (Ni-MH 150 mAH) that supports up to 3+ hours of talk time, or up to 43 hours of standby time. It operates on the high quality Verizon Wireless 1x CDMA Network.

I thought it would be a cost effective way to have another phone number independent of our main telephone service that we have through our cable provider. If the cable ever went out due to weather or whatever, we would still have Verizon Home Phone Connect. I also intended to use it as my work phone for my home office and for conference calls.
The Verizon Home Phone Connect relies on their cellular network, which is usually very good in my area, but the audio quality was often worse than my Verizon cellphone. It was noticeably worse than our old telephone company landline and our phone service through our cable provider. The audio quality was especially bad on conference calls if I was even able to dial-in to a conference call at all. The Verizon Home Phone Connect would often mess up the touch tones necessary to enter the conference call ID, passcode, etc. forcing me to redial the touch tones just to get in. It was a joke for business use.
I made adjustments to the system per their tech instructions and even called Verizon a couple times to see if they could improve the audio quality but they couldn't.
The worse part was being forced to pay the early termination penalty to drop their service. Don't get locked into this piece of junk unless it's your only choice for phone service. I'm generally very pleased with my Verizon cellphone service but this Home Phone Connect system is really bad.
I see that AT&T has something similar probably with similar cell service limitations and the usual early termination fees.
Finally, I called my Amazon and they took care of it with ease / like corporate pros. A few days later, a man called me saying he worked for Fortune 50 companies and took care of customer complaints (read : please remove your negative feedback.) After listening to him go on for 5 minutes I'd had enough. This (recellular too and Mobile Karma) company is a nuisance and will do nothing but waste your precious resources.
Please Amazon, do your due diligence and make sure these schlok operators can't resurface under new names, they are bad for your reputation.
There have been no problems with the connection and or the quality of the line.
We do live in an area that does have good cell reception - so make sure before you purchase this, that you know what the cell reception is like first.
We will miss getting voicemail in our email and free voice to text transcription. For a savings of $15 we can handle it. One other missing feature is CID name. We only get the phone number and not the name. That service is $3. The work around is to put folks' name in the Uniden phone directory. Not optimum but it's something.
It's portable, so we can take it on vacation and not max out our cellular minutes.
We were told up front that the device will not work with fax machines or with all alarm devices. The online description and manual also explain that.
The device has a backup battery and in a power outage will work as long as the cellular towers are working.

Should have done this much sooner. The cost of our basic landline service has become ridiculous, and long-distance was extra - WAY extra. Read morePublished 1 month ago by John K.

An excellent value--it just needs to be activated by Verizon; they send you a start-up kit with simple instructions, and you are in
business in about 2-3 days. Read more
