Consumer Cellular now offering in-home phone service

The traditional landline is all but obsolete, and now even modern VoIP home phone lines are being challenged. While they still present the best option for many families, others simply don’t use the home phone enough to justify the monthly cost of VoIP service. For them, home phone service from a cellular provider might make sense. Last year Straight Talk announced and then launched a home phone service that costs $15 per month. Yesterday Consumer Cellular announced its own in-home phone service. It includes a phone device, dubbed Wireless Home Phone Device, which costs $35. It works anywhere you have an electrical outlet and Consumer Cellular service. The service itself costs $10 per month when added to a Consumer Cellular account. And yes, you can use your current home phone number with it. You can sign up for the service at Consumer Cellular’s website.
