I'm planning on switching my parents from bell landline where they're paying over $80/mth to wireless home phone, but there concerned that their phones won't all work. They have 2 corded phones 1 cordless phone base with 2 handsets and are concerned that they will not be able to use all the phones, will they be limited to the cordless phones? Or will all phones ring at once if I connect them to the hub?

Hi mark,

Only two phones can be plugged into the WHP. However, I'm sure there is a way to connect the WHP to the house's existing wiring.

The wireless hub should have a couple of ports for multiple handsets but I'm not sure how many. Obviously your cordless base will connect to it for 1 port, but I don't know how many more it has.

EDIT: Mathieu beat me to it.

Honestly I'm never going to get a home phone but we have one for my mom as well... she's old school.

Two ports on the hub indicates that there should be enough power to run both conventional phones. Run a jumper from the hub to any phone outlet in the house and that should feed the 2 corded phones. Your connection to Bell or other landline service should be disconnected at the point of entry.

Cordless base stations normally supply their own power, so having that plugged in as well should not be an issue.
