Compared to other gadgets around the home, we don’t really think much about the humble home phone. As you long as you can make and receive phone calls on it, it doesn’t need to really do much else, right?
The thing is, there are many different brands and models of home phone on the market these days, and one of the most popular types of home phone are cordless phones. They were first offered to the general public back in 1994 (yes, that is over 19 years ago!) and one of the most important selling points of these phones is that you can take them anywhere within wireless signal range of the base or receiver.
This marvellous invention is a bit like the introduction of the wireless remote control for televisions; we all use them, but no-one has really given them a second thought as they are considered a ‘standard’ part of our lives in the 21st century!
If your existing phone has seen better days, or you have one of those “old fashioned” corded phones and want to upgrade to 20th century technology, then here are some really popular cordless phones for you to feast your eyes on!
