Looking for a headset for a home phone.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My wife's job is going to let her work from home. She is going to need a land line to perform her job. We haven't ever had a home phone so I'm not sure what people are using. Any suggestions, experiences or other information would be greatly appreciated.

She needs a light mobile headset to answer calls from anywhere in the home. (single ear clip style is preferred)

We do not have a phone so if a phone is required to use the set then please recommend one.

Thanks

Well you could always just get a basic cordless phone.... that has a headphone jack (personally, I use a Panasonic DECT 6.0 phone..)

You could get one like this....

Then you add a light headset to it so she can walk around with it with the phone clipped to her waist/beltline.

The cost of the landline is probably recackulous. Why not buy a GSM dumbphone or inexpensive smartphone, and get a straighttalk sim card and for 45$/mo you have unlimited everything.

Or, just thought of this. If you have the interweb at your home, which I would think so considering the @home business. IF you already have a smartphone, Get a google voice number, and use an App something like spare phone (costs 3$ but worth it). THe app only uses interweb connection (mobile data or wifi) for talk/text. Basically VoIP.

Her job required a "home phone" land line. They accepted a Time Warner phone. So we went that route. Took me about 2 hours of negotiating, but, I got TWC to give me their "new customer" promotion. I have had TWC for close to 10 years now.

So basically I am getting phone / tv / internet for $99/month. Works out to be less than I was originally paying without a phone.
