Your Home Phone + Our Great Service

For most of us these days, family budgets are getting tighter, not looser. So it’s a perfect time to look for ways to consolidate monthly bills. I’m pleased to report now you can combine your home phone and cell phone service into one easy and affordable monthly bill thanks to our new product, the Wireless Home Phone Base.

Simply put, the Wireless Home Phone Base enables you to use your traditional home telephone with our wireless network. It’s truly a cost-effective solution and is just like adding a second cell phone line to your account. Once you purchase the device, using your traditional home phone only adds $10 per month to your current cell phone plan. Just like any shared line, it will use minutes from your plan.

Here’s how it works: You plug your traditional home phone into our Wireless Home Phone Base and a standard electrical outlet. Voilà! You get voice service through our wireless network. You don’t even need a telephone wall jack. In fact, all you need is a strong cellular signal and an electrical outlet. This means it can be set up in just about any room of your house or you can take it with you on the road, making it the very definition of “mobile.”

Plus, you may keep both your existing number and telephone. For more details about Wireless Home Phone Base, please watch the brief video below or call our Contact Center at 1-888-345-5509.

  5. Jerry says

    Can I plug the base unit of a six cordless phone system into this and have all six phones receive and send the calls? Also, if the base unit includes an answering machine, will the answering machine get the unanswered call messages or will I have to fetch them from voicemail as I do now? Also (number 2)l if the base unit includes bluetooth capability, can I link my cell phones to the six portable phones when I am home and receive a call on my cell phone?

    reply to Jerry

    • Dominic at Consumer Cellular says

      Thanks for the questions, Jerry. You can check Voicemail using this device – similar to the way you check Voicemail on a cell phone. However, the device only works in conjunction with two phones. If you”re interested in learning more about this product, please feel free to contact us at 888-345-5509 and we”ll be more than happy to assist you.

  7. John Wandrey says

    I currently receive my internet service thru the phone company…what would I do for internet service?

    reply to John

    • Dominic at Consumer Cellular says

      Thanks for the question, John. You”re free to determine the best solution for your internet needs however, we don”t offer any internet solutions for the home. Thank you.

      reply to Dominic

      • Bill says

        With regards to internet solutions for the home, I understand that you don”t provide any, I would really like to see Consumer Cellular provide a high-speed wireless internet service in the near future. I would love to get rid of my Verizon DSL and my landline phone, not that DSL is bad, it”s GREAT!, however the cost of maintaining the landline phone and the DSL service, and especially all the numerous charges, fees and surcharges are taxing me financially. Hope you folks at Consumer Cellular might consider providing such a wireless internet service.

  8. Ken Ridge says

    Looks interesting. How does this work if I have multiple phones in my home? Are additional minutes included with the $10 charge? Thanks.

    reply to Ken

    • Dominic at Consumer Cellular says

      Hi Ken. Thanks for the questions. You plug two phones in to this device. The $10 charge allows you to share the minutes on your current plan with this device. If you need additional minutes, you”re free to move to a different plan. If you need any additional information, please feel free to contact us at 888-345-5509. Thank you.

    Will the device interfere with my wireless Internet ?

    reply to Karen

  10. linda helm says

    We have caller I”D on the landline…would this service be included ?

    reply to linda

  11. David says

    Sounded very interesting and I had several questions until I read you could only connect 2 phones to it. That kind’a makes it useless in a family setting where 3 bedrooms are about minimum. From a technical point of view I can”t see why you can not plug your cordless phone 6 units in to it and it would work. It only supplies an interface to the cellular system.

    reply to David

    • Dominic at Consumer Cellular says

      Hi David. Here”s some further clarification for you. There are two telephone ports on the Wireless Home Phone Base. If you have a home phone system that connects to one wall jack and branches out into several telephones – you can use that set up with this device. It”ll just use one of the two available ports. If you need any additional assistance, please feel free to contact us at 888-345-5509.

    Do you see getting home internet service in the near furture

    reply to kay

    • Dominic at Consumer Cellular says

      Thanks for the question, Kay. To be honest, it”s very unlikely that Consumer Cellular will expand into the market that provides home internet service. Thank you.

  15. Sandi B says

    1) You mentioned in your videos that calls have to be made using 10 digit phone numbers….
    What about calling emergency 911 ????
    2) Our DSL internet service is connected via phone line in another room….. Will this
    interfere with that at all ??? Thanks

    reply to Sandi

    • Dominic at Consumer Cellular says

      Hi Sandi. Dialing 911 can be accomplished the same way you dial on a regular home phone, simply dial 911. This device won”t interfere with your DSL service however, if you need any additional information, please feel free to contact us at 888-345-5509. Thank you.

  19. Billy Williams says

    I have ATT landline and wireless internet. If i change to your home phone wireless service how do I keep the wireless internet. Do I call and let them know I still want internet or will you take care of it for me?

    reply to Billy

    • Ashley at Consumer Cellular says

      Thank you for commenting, Billy. When you move your phone service to us, we will port your number and take care of the number transfer. We won’t be able to do anything with the cable portion of our service with AT&T, so it is probably a good idea to contact them and let them know you will be keeping the internet service. When you are ready to start the transfer, just give us a call at 888-345-5509, and we can get that taken care of for you. Thank you again for the comment, and have a wonderful day!

    I used to have CC cell phone – but could not get calls where we live. That was about 3 years ago. Has the ‘broadcast power’ increased since then? We would love to go back to CC.

    I am currently using another VoiP service but am thinking of combining your home VoiP with my current wireless account. What is the cost of the base unit and is the additional $10 a flat fee for the service or is taxes and additional charges added to that figure. I am currently paying $13.25/mo with my VoiP service.
