XLink combines your landline and cell phones via Bluetooth


I’m fortunate enough not to work in a large office. Generally speaking, large offices usually mean boring cubicles and annoying phone systems. The only phone lines that I worry about are my cell phone and my fax line. However, if you have an office phone, here’s a device that might make things a little easier for you.

The Xlink Cellular Gateway will let you “use your cellular phone as your home phone” and “use your home phone as your cell phone.” Essentially what it does is take your existing office phone (or home phone, doesn’t really matter what you call it) and integrate it with up to three Bluetooth mobile phones. This allows you to answer landline calls from your cell phone, and cell phone calls on your landline (when the phones are in range).

If I had a larger house or office I might consider something like this. I don’t know how many times I’ve had to run upstairs to grab my cell phone when it would be just as easy to grab one of the cordless phones downstairs. You can pick one up for $169.99.

  1. Not bad, but Uniden has had a system that has done something similar for quite some time (Uniden ELBT 595). The base station has bluetooth which uses the handsfree profile of your cell phone to connect. When the cell phone rings, it connects to the base to make your home phone ring. You can’t use your cell to make calls on your home line like this system though.

    I have the Uniden system and it’s quite handy. As I use Comcast’s VOIP service, I connect the base station to the router and only have this one unit to connect. I have 5 “handsets” throughout the rest of the house that connect to that one base station. I can answer or make calls from the land line or cell line from any handset in the house. The link to this Uniden system is here:

  2. This would be great in my house. I have cell phone dead spots and I would be able to use my portable house phone and not be stuck in one spot on my cell phone.
