Hello Nancy,

WHP doesn't work with wifi but with carrier signal so if internet goes down, it should work. As for the power, I don't know. I think the WHP has a battery that would mean it would still work but not 100% sure about that.

The home phone uses the same connection as your cellphone so in the odd instance the cellular service goes down then yes the home phone unit wouldn't get a connection.

The home phone unit has battery backup so it's good for 12 hours or so without ac power

Keep in mind, though, that cordless phones won't work without power even though the home phone base unit will. You'll need an old fashioned corded phone to use it during a power outage.

Annnnnd.... there were some units shipped without a battery because the factory was short, and shipped the device anyway. Check to be sure your unit has a battery installed.
