A useful device for sure, dont you have a landline at home though?

where can you get them from ??

Michael Loughlin says:

That’s really good. ….

mike x says:

would of been useful if they had of included landine connectors on gsm deskphones also so you could use it for both sim card and landline use

Andrew MOTLS says:

Interesting idea for a GSM network, Lebara in the UK runs on Vodafone.

i like this video so much! it is the best review of this phone.

Dan Adamson says:

The problem with your not getting a good signal while at home is because you are so close to the mast believe it or not. I had the same problem years ago when I was with 02. There was a mast on top of the Highrise I lived in and because I was on the 19th floor I couldn’t get a signal as I was too close. As soon as I came out the building it was fine.

Also try this trick it works for me. I’m with Vodafone and get a crap signal in the house. Cut your mobile network down to 2g when at home and turn your Mobile data off and your bars will magically re-appear.

Interesting device, Lewis.

Related to this, in my first job of many years they had a device called a ‘Premicell’. It is essentially a keyboard-less and screen-less phone that integrates into a PBX phone system. You could dial ‘9’ for an outside line, or ‘8’ to route the call through the Premicall. The idea of this was to stop expensive landline<>mobile calls. We had two of these and the display would say ‘Premicell 1’ or ‘Premicell 2’ , specific numbers that the engineers could dial back to.

So, there’s a bit of bonus info you may not have known about. 73.

Lewis, great video! when you called your new phone from your I phone it sounds like the pink Floyd song where the person makes a call. You guys have a way different ring tone and dial tone in the UK

These seem to be around 50 quid on eBay now 🙁

Michael Loughlin says:

I’ve looked it up it says something about commands that can be activated by the user if that makes sense. …..

When you are in the house switch your iphone GSM settings to 2G/3G instead of 4G.
