Beware January 23, 2013
Reviewer: Customer "Customer"
If they try to sell it to you, run, don't walk from the store. Land line phones trying to call you get a "phone disconnected" message. You can call out but voice quality is poor and there is a constant beep. Only cell phones and long distance could get through. We quickly cancelled. It took 9 days to get DSL back and a whopping 14 days to get internet turned back on. (They have to turn it off to switch to wireless). At least 10 frustrating hours with customer support. No one seems to know what they are doing.
Buyer Beware!!. Lacks Fully Functional Caller ID and Has 2 Year Commitmant March 8, 2013
Reviewer: Lawrence C. Bieber "lbieber" (Bay Area) -
This was pushed by ATT when I tried to sign up for Uverse as a way to save money. First, I asked if it had caller ID and was told it did. However, caller ID only lists the caller's phone number on the phone. It does not list the caller's name. Further, it does not show any information on the TV. If I had known this, I would not have purchased it. Second, there is a two year commitment with an expensive early termination charge after 14 days. (Uverse has 30 days.) Again, ATT did not tell me this. If they had, I would not have purchased it. ATT presented this product in a deceptive and dishonest manner. I regret buying it and wish I could get out of this and go with a regular land line with Uverse or better yet with another provider.
Up and running within 2 hours including home phone porting April 3, 2013
Reviewer: bird with one leg
I read many good/bad reviews ... mostly bad.
I arrived at my local AT&T store within 45 minutes of closing and picked up the AT&T Wireless Home Phone and had my home phone ported from Comcast.
I hooked up the equipment and disconnected Comcast phone cable from our home phone connections and plugged in the AT&T Wireless Home Phone.
Worked the first time without any issue.
I like the fact we can pack the phone and use it at our destination OR just plug it in our van (with 110 outlets) for long trips up and down California.
Easy way to cut the cord March 4, 2013
Reviewer: Marcus Zahn
I used this to cut the cord on my home phone service. I just added a line to my cell phone package for 9.99 and used this device to port my home phone (that I was paying $40 a month for) over to my cell phone bill. It uses my unlimited cell phone calling plan and also allows me to take it with me if I ever move. Easiest way to save money I've come up with for a while. I have a good signal at my house -- you need that -- but presuming you have that then all it takes is a power outlet and a plug into your existing cordless phones (or if you want, an old-fashioned wired phone).
I really wanted this to work February 27, 2013
Reviewer: C. Carmichael "Chris92071" (Santee, CA USA) -
I wanted to port a land line to this service as I was told "simple" and have it in three days. I ordered and after two weeks of waiting, I cancelled from AT&T. The main issue was porting the number from copper to wireless on the same company. Plus, after a five days I called and only found that the shipping would happen 'soon'. It didn't. Even promised overnight shipping -- didn't happen. So, in theory, the device should work great. The in-store demo seemed to prove that. But the AT&T shipping never happened.
