Never Lose A Call With The Panasonic Link2Cell System

February 27th, 2014 by Christen

“Oh, I’m sorry – the call dropped…” 


We’ve seen it before- spotty cell phone coverage in our homes, resulting in the dreaded dropped call. For those of us who have turned cell phones into our “all-the-time” phones, Panasonic has got your whole house covered with the Link2Cell cordless phone system.


Panasonic Link2Cell System

Panasonic Link2Cell KX-TG7874S, MSRP $149.95


The idea is simple: connect your cellphone to the Panasonic Link2Cell phone (which you can also use to make/receive landline calls) and never miss a cell phone call (unless of course you want to), never drop a call and get the best reception your home has to offer.


What is Panasonic’s Link2Cell?  Link2Cell uses bluetooth to combine the freedom of your cell phone with the convenience of a home phone. Panasonic Link2Cell is a cordless phone system that operates together with your cell phone, allowing you to make and receive cell phone calls though the multi-handset home phone with Panasonic’s unique bluetooth-powered Panasonic Link-to-Cell.


Panasonic Link2Cell System

I keep the Panasonic Link2Cell base at my desk and keep the others around the house.


The Panasonic Link2Cell base unit features a convenient USB charging port to charge your smartphone while talking on the Link2Cell handset. Worried about missing a text message?  The text message (SMS) alert notifies a user of received text message on your cell phone through an alert on your cordless handset.

Make and receive cell phone calls through the Panasonic Link2Cell handset– with or without a landline. Place your cellphone in the area of your home where you get the best reception then sync it up via Bluetooth with the Link2Cell handset and talk for hours without dropping your call. You can even link up to two cellphones to the Panasonic Link2Cell system for households with multiple family members to enjoy.


Panasonic Link2Cell System

You can store the remaining handsets anywhere in your home with a nearby outlet.


The Talking Caller ID feature uses text-to-speech technology, announcing the caller’s information in between rings – so you can hear who is calling from across the room without getting up.  The Panasonic Link 2 Cell comes complete with four handsets so you won’t miss a call, no matter where you are in your home.


Panasonic Link2Cell System

Keep your kitchen germ free with a dedicate phone instead of using your smartphone.


Panasonic Link2Cell System

Panasonic’s Link2Cell comes with four handsets to use throughout your entire home. Never lose a phone call again.


Want to win a Panasonic Link2Cell system of your own?  

Tell us where you’re always dropping calls and enter our Panasonic Link2Cell #SavedCall Giveaway below for your chance to win today!
