Still missing cell phone calls and texts while at home? Like most people, you probably dont like carrying your cell phone with you around the house. Now you can have the functionality of your cell or smartphone and the convenience of a multi-handset cordless phone system. With Panasonic Link2Cell1, you can simply park your cell phone in its charger and forget it. Link2Cell is a home phone that syncs with your cell phone via Bluetooth so you can make or receive cell phone calls using any of the cordless hand- sets throughout your home. Select Link2Cell models include a USB port for charging your cell phone and will even tell you when youve received a text.

And of course, Link2Cell functions as a normal home phone and in- cludes all the convenient features youd expect from Panasonic.
