Mobile phone to land line phone converter

    I saw or read somewhere of a device where you connect your regular land line
    phone to your cell phone, so you can use your land line phone and your cell
    phone acts as a conduit. Has anyone heard of this and if so, where can I
    purchase one?

    There were many at one time, but they seem to have gone away. You "plug"
    your cell phone into a docking station, and it provided talk/battery to your
    down-line connected POTs (Plain Old Telephones).

    Here is a link to something called cellsocket (I have not tried it myself),
    can't say I know of any new tri-mode ones being available, although the site
    alludes to a Motorola version in October, and it is now November. There
    used to be on that used the startac. You see, boaters were using these for
    quite a while, it was just not talked about much, but for no particular
    reason. Hope this helps...

    I just got an ad for such a device from SBC/Cingular. I also saw an ad in
    the paper this week for such a device for an ATT phone. I did not pay too
    much attention to either since I am a V. user. However, thy appear to work
    as you state.

    The ones I have seen for home use, use a land line for local calls and can
    use the cell phone for long distance. The ones I seen/used for boats and
    RV's, use the cell phone UNLESS there is a land line hooked up in which case
    that takes precedence, or you can dial a number to force the cell use.
    (Handy for boats and RV's that only have land-lines once in a while)

    Check out http://boatantenna.com/cellular/cds.html for a "Cellsocket" (only
    works with certain phones, mainly Nokia)
    and what I have in my RV http://boatantenna.com/cellular/cpbs.html "Base
    Station" (has a cell phone built in and uses regular phones/answering
    machines/fax machines etc)
