We are deeply emerged in the world of cell phones. I can’t knock them, they certainly provide a great convenience and the technology just seems to increase daily, but what about the good old landline?
I still have my landline and don’t plan on losing it any time soon. Yes, one of those reason is simply because It would cost me more to lose it as part of my cable/internet package then it will to keep it, but the main reason is, I just find it so much simpler. My cell service is horrible in my home, I’m always dropping calls, breaking-up etc. With my home phone I never have to play the can you hear me now game while on an important conference call, or speaking with one of my children’s teachers.
However, this doesn’t mean I was using any phone for more then necessity, in fact, I hated talking on the phone period. With the kids running around, dogs barking, dishes to be washed, butts to be wiped, juggling the phone on my ear became just an added hassle. It never fails, that important call comes in right in the middle of a disaster - The floor is covered in a sticky mess, fingers are being pointed as to who created the mess and there I am, doing the ear to shoulder juggle, when suddenly the phone slips out and crashes to the ground right in to the puddle of sticky goo! Yes, this is a true story. Things like this happen so frequently that at times I simply shut the ringer off. I do miss though, the simple interaction of actually physically speaking to someone on the phone. I just need it to be easier, I have too much on my plate on a daily bases to take even 15 minutes to sit down and talk. I LOVE being a Mom, but it sometimes seems that even the simplest task becomes a chore as a Mother.
So what do you get the Multi-tasking Mom that has it all this Mother’s Day? How about the Vtech LS6475-3 Multitasking phone system?
I have been so wrapped up in what the latest cell phone can do, I haven’t thought about upgrading my home phone or what features a new home phone could possibly have to make a busy Moms life easier.
The Vtech LS6475-3 Multitasking phone system is packed with features like digital security; Your call is digitized and encrypted, making it nearly impossible for someone to eavesdrop; remote access, digital answering, expandable bases, speaker phone, HD audio, a 500ft radius and more.
The features that really sold me on this system however were the extras not typically found with a cordless set up. The cordless headset means no more ear to shoulder juggling for me, or racing to find the phone. With a touch of the button on the ear piece I can answer a call, chat away, and still tend to the house, computer work, kids etc.
Now typically, I would be worried that I might pick up the phone and not want to speak with the person on the other end. I assumed that even the headset I would have to race to find out who is calling - which for me means, digging the base phone out from the couch cushions ultimately missing the call anyways! Not true with the Vtech LS6475-3 Multitasking phone system as it has Voice Announce Caller ID, which audibly announces the name and number of the caller on all of the handsets and base unit. I LOVE this. You know me, the simpler a product makes my life, the more I love it.
I also have to make mention of the push to talk system. This unit comes equipped with two bases, two phones and headset - all chargeable. You can use the phones as walkie talkies, which my kids think is the absolute coolest thing. So now when my husbands in the garage and I am in the house, instead of screaming for each other, we can have a simple and free two-way conversation.
If your looking from style, function, ease of use and convenience, then the Vtech LS6475-3 Multitasking phone system is for you. It would make for a wonderful gift, for the busy Mom in your life as well!
