Hitting the Highway with Home Phone Connect + Giveaway Ends 9/23 #VZWHomePhone

This past week, my family and I were in southern California to review local attractions and lodging. Instead of using our cell minutes or draining the batteries, we brought the Home Phone Connect with us and set up our mobile office.

Using Verizon Wireless Home Phone Connect in Hotel Room While Traveling Using Verizon Wireless Home Phone Connect in Hotel Room While Traveling

We got full reception and had the convenience of calling/receiving calls while away from home. It was so nice being able to just pick up the phone and talk away, without worrying about any extra costs. While there, a friend of mine received some great news and wanted to share it with me. We were able to talk at length and I didn’t get a neck cramp dealing with my cell phone or deal with spotty connectivity asking, “Can you hear me now?” every few minutes or so.

You’ve already read my FAQ on the service but I haven’t told you what I think of it yet. Since the device’s external antenna boosts any signal in range, even we get two out of three bars of reception (our apartment building itself is basically a dead zone). Our phone calls have been mostly clear with no drops. I also really like the fact that Home Phone Connect has a battery backup and GPS for emergency situations, not like the VOIP systems we’ve relied on in the past.

Verdict: I would recommend this service if you want the benefits of a landline for only $20 per month.

Now it’s your turn. As an Ambassador for Verizon Wireless Home Phone Connect, I have the privilege of hosting a special giveaway. One of my readers will win a Home Phone Connect device ($129.99 value). You will also get a full month of service, including unlimited local and long distance calls, to try it before committing to a contract. Enter below!

I was provided a device, cordless phone, complimentary service for three months, and compensation by Verizon Wireless to participate in this program. This, however, will not affect me in providing my 100% honest opinion in this or subsequent posts I write regarding the sponsoring company.
