We have a 2-phone cordless now - buy another & a Y-adapter

I just hate the idea of scrapping these gadgets every 5 years !

SWMBO *prefers* the cordless phones as they have a speakerphone
option. She'd much rather hold the phone in her lap and talk normally
than have to hold it up to her ear.

I keep a (genuine) "trimline" phone hanging in the closet
as a fallback. And, the "long range" cordless base there
as well.

but still tethered to a land-line service! The magic of PSTN
gateways! : ]
