Over the last several months, I've been using Verizon's Home Phone Connect. I've told you a little about the features; why, in this day of cell phones, I still need a home phone; and that it's going to be my cost-effective lifeline to my daughter in Mexico. Now, I can tell you why I'm going to be keeping the Huaweii device and Verizon HPC service.
Battery Back Up
Last year, we had a major black out throughout the county of San Diego. Thankfully, we had a solar powered generator that kept us going, but once the power was back on, we started looking around the Sugar Shack for ways that we could better be prepared for another outage. The Huaweii device has a battery back up in the event of power outages, whereas we would be unable to use our previous device on our cable phone service.
Take It or Leave It
In the event that we decide to move, we can take our service and number with us. And if we go on an extended road trip, we would be able to take our home phone with us. I know what you're going to ask. "Why not use your cell phone?" Well, as I mentioned before, not everyone in my life gets my cell phone number any more, but there are calls that I have to take while I'm away. Taking my home phone with me would simplify things.
Finally, there's the phone quality. Calls on our Verizon Home Phone Connect service are so clear! I've even done test calls with friends to make sure it wasn't just me. They mentioned that the tone of the calls were better on the HPC line.
Verizon Home Phone Connect Contest
So now, I get to give you the chance to win a Verizon Home Phone Connect system and trial service! The Huaweii base is a $129.99 value. Winner will not have to sign up for any term contract. You can just try it for a month and see if they like the service and savings.
