We use this with link-to-cell feature only no landline. Were using an older LG 290 series (cheesy) cell with it from Straight Talk.
Most features work with the older phone except for the cell phone ringers won't go through to the home phone no biggy though. Sometimes the caller ID will just show which cell the call is comming from, for example, "Dave's Phone" (my cell# will appear instead of name and number. Thats the phone the call is comming from. That number will still be on the caller ID when you check it after the call so you can label it in the KX phone from there to defeat it. There might be another way but I haven't found it yet.
Bluetooth registering and connecting via bluetooth is easy. Setup from there is a little cumbersome but there are 5 handsets and a base to set up so thats expected. Not to difficult just alot of reading and fiddling to figure out.
Answering machine on the KX is for landline only although you can still dial out to your voice mail on cell from there.
I imagine gadget #smart# phones will have no issues at all with this product.
Great Range, clear sound, easy to read, connecting bluetooth is simple, contacts list transfer is simple as well.
The power backup is for landline use ONLY.
The KX-xxxx phones will not search for a device, the device #cell# must search for it in order to connect.
If no landline feature is needed then turn off that feature and set to cell only. Also I recommend a lower priced one without that feature if its not needed.
Great thing to have around. Phones all over the place now with no need to babysit a cell phone at all.
