Link2Cell

Link2Cell is a cordless phone system that operates together with your cell phone. Simply charge your cell phone through the USB port on the Panasonic base unit and synch the two via Bluetooth. Now you’re ready to make and receive cell calls that are automatically routed through all your home phone handsets. Which means there’s no need to carry your cell phone around your home.

USB Charge

No convenient electrical outlet for charging your cell phone or smart phone? No problem. The base unit features a convenient USB charging port. And because it’s Link2Cell, you can answer your cell phone calls on your Panasonic home phone handsets without draining your cell phone battery.

Text Message (SMS) Alert

Never miss a text message again. The Text Message Alert feature notifies you of received text message on your cell phone through an alert on your cordless handset when your cell phone is synced to the base unit.

Enhanced Noise Reduction

Enhanced Noise Reduction (available on select 2013 models) not only suppresses background noise but also enhances your voice at the same time. Which means the next time your teenager calls you from a concert, you’ll actually be able to hear him.

DECT 6.0 Plus Technology

If you’re looking for superb sound quality and long range, look no further than the DECT 6.0 Plus technology in Panasonic cordless phones. Thanks to error correction up to 80x, you get clear transmission even with extended range. Engineered to work in 1.9GHz frequency, our DECT 6.0 Plus phones won't interfere with wireless devices such as routers, wireless keyboards and microwave ovens. Whether you use them in the basement or the backyard, our phones truly go the distance.

Answering Machine with Message Forwarding

Thanks to advanced answering machine functions (available on select 2013 models), you can get messages wherever, whenever. At home, the base unit will beep to alert you to a message. And on the road, the phone will send a message to your registered cell or work phone.

Talking Caller ID

Hear who’s calling from across the room. The Talking Caller ID feature uses text-to-speech technology, announcing the caller’s information in between rings.

Intelligent Eco Mode

With the Intelligent Eco Mode, when you use the handset closest to the base unit, you’ll automatically lower power consumption. This not only extends available talk time but also prolongs battery life. Which means less frequent charging and in the end, fewer batteries in landfills.

          Awesome phone

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Panasonic Link2Cell Bluetooth Cordless Phone with 3 Handsets - Silver:

          I love this phone. The only issue I have had is when I connected 2 cell phones the text message alert quit. I think it could be due to 1 of the cell phones was older, but I am not sure. Once I disconnected that cell phone the text message alert came back. So I don't know if that is an issue with the phone or if the cell phone caused it.

            Comments about Panasonic Link2Cell Bluetooth Cordless Phone with 3 Handsets - Silver:

            This is the best home phone I've had. The audio quality and wireless range are terrific. The speaker phone feature of the remotes is excellent, first speaker phones that I do not have to scream at. Normal speech tone and volume works fine. The speaker phone feature of the base is not as good, the sound from the speaker is a little distorted and lower in tone.

                We replaced a very old Panasonic cordless with this model. The sound quality is excellent and the features are clever and easy to use. An excellent value for the money. I did finf the range to be a bit limited for a modern phone but I purchased the range extender and now I have good coverage throughout my property.

                  Comments about Panasonic Link2Cell Bluetooth Cordless Phone with 3 Handsets - Silver:

                  I purchased the KX-TG7873 about a month ago and I must admit that it is one of the best investments I ever made. This phone is excellent in all respects and includes every feature anyone could want in a cordless phone. I use it only as a landline phone without pairing it to my cell phone so I can't comment on that feature. To me, the most valuable feature of this phone is the ability to not only call block up to 250 numbers but this phone allows you to suppress the first ring of a previously blocked call. Before purchasing this phone, I owned a Pansonic KX-TG4733 which does not feature the first ring suppression feature and even though it was functioning flawlessly, I upgraded to the KX-TG7873 just for the first ring feature.

                            Comments about Panasonic Link2Cell Bluetooth Cordless Phone with 3 Handsets - Silver:

                            First of all, I never even knew that you can have a house phone that connects to your cell phone. What an added bonus! I don't have to run around the apartment trying to find my cell phone. For the most part, the quality of the phone calls coming in from my cell phone to the house phone were very good. They sound a little bit "further" away, similar to using Bluetooth in your car, but I didn't have any serious issues with it. Linking the phone to your cell phone was really easy...didn't take me more than 2 minutes to figure it out and successfully link them. I'm still getting comfortable with all the other features and switching between cell phone calls and land-line calls, but everything seems to be pretty straight forward. I really love the shape and design of the phone...it takes much less room than my previous cordless and base, but it's also very comfortable to hold. I tend to drop my phones a lot and so far this one is holding up well. The only complaint I have is that I cannot stand when the phone starts to announce who is calling. I cannot seem to turn that feature off myself so I may have to call customer service and see if they can help me with that. If it cannot be turned off, then I may just go crazy one day! It's really an annoyance, especially at early hours on the weekends, so that's the only reason I have to give this product GOOD instead of Excellent for ease of use and features. Regardless, I would definitely recommend the product.

                              Comments about Panasonic Link2Cell Bluetooth Cordless Phone with 3 Handsets - Silver:

                              Upon opening the box, I was pleasantly surprised with the packaging and care taken to make certain these phones were in perfect condition. After assembling the phones, installing the batteries (belt clips would not go on), etc, I headed straight for the directions. I was sure this phone was going to be a completely new experience when I discovered that the instruction manual was 93 pages long. However, most of the instructions, such as installing the phone, assembling the handsets, were straight forward. If you use DSL internet service, make sure your connect the base to proper line filter or else you will hear nothing but static. The handsets themselves are light and comfortable. They have a rather large LCD that makes the display very easy to read. The backlit keypad is a nice touch also. Scrolling through the menus is very easy on this phone. Voice quality is excellent as well. I have had no problem hearing people, and no one has complained about be able to hear me either. The base unit is smaller than our previous one (this set is replacing a Panasonic KX-2730 that served us well for years). Outside of the normal features it's a cordless phone right? Panasonic did add another other nice feature including Caller ID that talks to you, no more racing to the phone to find out who called. I also appreciate the ability to store up to 3,000 entries in the Phonebook, a welcome improvement over the 50 we could have on the old phone. At the heart of this phone is the Link2Cell feature. I must admit that I had some difficulty setting this up, though the issues were with me, not Panasonic. I began by testing the USB charger where you can connect your phone to the base unit to let it charge. Then I started working on the Bluetooth connection. Not mentioned in the directions is that you have to have your cell phone searching for the base unit in order for them to "see" each other. Once they are paired, everything works perfectly. With link to cell, you can answer both your cell phone, or your landline phone with the handsets. This is a very nice feature to have as I can now take a handset to a swimming pool and answer both phones, without have to carry 2 phones, or worry about my cell phone falling in the pool. You can also choose which handset can and cannot answer your cell. The handset can also be used to make cellular calls. This feature doesn't do much for me, but I'm sure anyone without a land line would appreciate this. I also think it's great that you can transfer cell calls to the handset and vice versa. Also very interesting is the ability to accept a cell phone call and a land line call at the same time as well as make a cell phone and landline phone call at the same time. The only feature I have not had a chance to play with is the shared phonebook. I look forward to adding my cell phone contacts to the "house" phone. All-in-all, I am really enjoying this phone. It is truly feature laden with much, much more that I ever expected from a cordless phone. Please note that I picked difficult to use. It really isn't, one must jest read some of the instructions thoroughly.
