Cabin and lake home owners can directly connect their cell phones to existing phone lines, making local phone service unnecessary.   With many cell phone plans offering free long distance and extra evening and weekend minutes, hundreds of dollars can be saved by avoiding phone company hook up and service costs.   It is as easy as putting your phone on a charger.   Even better, by adding one of our antenna boosters, you can have a reliable connection, even where cell phone coverage is spotty.

CellSocket Q&A

What is it?

An interface device between a cellular phone and landline hardware. Your customer can use their landline home phone hardware to make calls through their cellular phone.

Why would I want it?

  1. You can use: · Unused cellular phone minutes · Unused night and weekend minutes · Unused long distance minutes all with the comfort and convenience of your home phones.
  2. You have the option to shut your home phone service off!
  3. You can use your standard wired phones, as before, but the calls run through your cell phone.

Scenario 1 (Simple Cordless Home Phone)
Plug one or more cordless telephones into cellsocket use anywhere in the house.
Scenario 2 (Single Person)
Shut off home phone service; plug the RJ11 into one phone jack on the wall. All calls from any home phone are made using cell phone.
Scenario 3 (Family)
If home has dual RJ11 Jacks already on the wall, make sure one line is not used (dead line). Plug the RJ11 into the unused set of jacks. Use either 2 line phones or separate phones for each line.(If home does not have dual RJ11 wall plates, see below*)

Specialty uses:

bulletTemporary housing units
bulletBusiness backup phone systems
bulletAutomatic dialers for Alarm systems

What is the output connector?

Standard modular RJ11 plug.

Can I plug it in existing home phone jacks?

ONLY if you have a dead line (no dial tone)
If your do not have a dead line… Use cordless or regular home phones plugged directly into the Cellsocket OR *(Professional installer recommended) Install dual RJ11 jack plates… wire with remaining black and yellow wires. Use 2 line phones or insert a separate phone in each jack.

Can I make outgoing calls?

Yes. Just pick up the phone and dial.
