Product Description

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.

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
  • Before making a call, make sure at least one of the signal strength indicators are lit up.
  • Place a call by entering the desired telephone number. The number will be dialed automatically.
  • When your call is complete, hang up or return the phone to the receiver to ensure that you can receive calls.
To Receive Calls
  • For customers with new telephone number, simply share your new number with friends & family. When they call, answer the phone connected to your Home Phone Connect device.
  • For customers that are porting their existing home number to the Home Phone Connect, do not disconnect your existing home phone.
  • Incoming calls will continue to ring on your existing home phone until port is complete.
  • You will receive an email (to the email address provided) when the port process is finished.

Features

Caller ID, call waiting, call forwarding, 3-way calling, voicemail, access to 411 / 611 / 911, last number callback, and international calling available.

  • Take it with you and have your home phone number at your vacation beach cottage.
  • No additional software or internet services needed to operate this device.

Incompatibilities

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.

  • Sending or receiving collect calls.
  • Most DSL or dial up internet services
  • DVR, Dish Network, and DirecTV
  • Medical or life alert dependencies
  • Fax and credit card machines

Additional Info

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 had one of these Verizon Home Phone Connect devices and service about a year ago and it was horrible!

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.

Never again!

The phone connect has worked perfectly so far. You must check your reception with a verizon cell phone before buying as the device will not work well without at least 2 bars. I tried a Magic Jack 1st and returned it after being on the phone with someone in another country for 3 hours. This device does not need an internet connection.I highly suggest you purchase the home phone connect on line ($30-40). That way you do not need to have a commitment with verizon if you don't like it. Verizon charges $140 for the device or free with a two year contract.

Received the item. It did not work with my current home phone. Purchased 2 add'l phones to make sure the item sent by Mobile Karma aka Recellular too (2) did not work. The packaging/box had no return name on it but, it did have a phone number in its place. (Save your outer wrap kids !) I called the phone number 3 times before I got through. When finally reaching a person, I was put on hold then disconnected. I tried to call back 3 additional times ---and the calls were ignored (most likely they have phone caller ID eh'?)

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.

I bought the "Like New" unit for my mom. Physical condition was great but almost continuous complaints from those talking to her (cutting in an out, etc). Didn't think you could have so many problems with such a simple device. In an event. Verizon was wonderful and patient and in the long run replaced the unit with a new one. Voila! Fairly consistent operation from then on. Highly recommend going this route to replace a land line, but like anything, may not work the first time.

We have been using this for about 2 years now after replacing our AT&T line, saved us a lot of money.

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.

I just replaced our Vonage service with this Verizon device. The voice quality is excellent. Initially we had poor quality voice so I relocated the device and it's great now. All three signal LEDs are lit. I connected our Uniden cordless master station to the unit and when a call comes in, ALL the paired phones will ring. If all your phones don't ring, it has absolutely NOTHING to do with the Verizon device. You may need to pair all system phones to the master station. We just used the same setup as we did with Vonage and everything just worked.

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.
