vTech Launches LS6245

Although the vTech LS6245 is not a cellphone it does solve the problem of dropped calls and poor call quality when using your mobile phone within the home.  The DECT 6.0 Digital based expandable cordless phone system uses Bluetooth technology to sync up to two devices at a time while saving connection profiles for another two.


When a mobile phone is connected to the phone system all incoming calls from the cellphone are automatically forwarded to the system handsets.  This features allows you to centrally locate the base station an area with good coverage but make and receive calls using the handsets throughout your home, even if you do not normally have cell coverage there.

The LS6245 is currently available from the vTech website and at BestBuy USA stores for $79.99.  Addition handsets can be purchased for $39.99.
