PORTLAND, OR – June 10, 2013 — Consumer Cellular, the number one rated cellphone service for the third consecutive year and exclusive wireless provider for AARP members, has added a Wireless Home Phone Device to the company’s product portfolio. The Wireless Home Phone Device allows users to receive home phone service through Consumer Cellular’s wireless network instead of through a traditional landline, reducing costs while increasing call mobility at home and on the road.
The Wireless Home Phone Device is designed to work with a household’s current home phone. Customers can assign their existing landline number to the device, and any incoming and outgoing calls will be carried over Consumer Cellular’s wireless network. This eliminates the need for landline service while providing the flexibility and signal strength of Consumer Cellular’s wireless phone service throughout the home.
“Consumers will always look for three qualities from their wireless provider: simplicity, value and service,” said Consumer Cellular CEO John Marick. “These priorities are what drive our team here at Consumer Cellular, and it’s why we’re excited to offer the Wireless Home Phone Device to our customers. In addition to the option of cutting out the costs of a traditional landline service, customers can expect the same convenience of a landline with the added benefits of Consumer Cellular’s service.”
To use the Wireless Home Phone Device, customers need only an electrical source and a Consumer Cellular wireless signal. This allows customers the added flexibility to take the device with them and use it while traveling, whether they are in an RV or in a hotel room. It also has a battery that lasts for 3.5 hours when on a call, or up to 36 hours if not in use.
The Wireless Home Base Device is available for $35, and service cost is $10 a month if added as an additional line to an existing Consumer Cellular account. For more information please visit www.consumercellular.com or call 1-888-345-5509.
