The ideal means of communicating with family and friends

By Randy Collins Subscribe to RSS | March 23rd 2012 | Views:

Staying in touch with friends and family constantly is very important. The world has shrunk due to technological advances and we are able to communicate with any person in any corner of the earth by various means like telephone, internet etc. However, speaking to a loved one cannot be replaced by any other mode however ever fast and efficient it may be. That is why the humble telephone can never be replaced in spite of any advancements science and technology may bring us.

Though there are many types of phones available today like cellular phones, satellite phones, smart phones etc. however, it is the regular home phone that is now available with several user-friendly features that are really convenient that are very popular. What"��s more, besides the fantastic calling features, there are some great calling plans to suit every need and budget.

One of the most important features that anyone could wish for is Voicemail. It is like having your own, personalized answering service. This intelligent feature can take messages (actually record messages) either when you are not at home or even if you are not in the mood to receive a call and speak. However, it is quite different from an answering machine that can only record messages. Voicemail on the other hand can even take a message while you are busy on another call. There is no need to spend further on costly equipment as this feature is built into the home phone, though there is a small extra price to pay.

These days, technology has advanced to an extent where features are interchangeable with other devices. For instance, the feature called Caller ID on TV allows you to detect the identity of the caller on your TV screen itself before deciding whether you wish to take the call or not. This feature dispenses the need to get up and reach for your telephone every time it rings. Unwanted calls and crank calls can be eliminated at source itself. Another great feature that has proved its worth is 3-way Calling. This feature allows you to bring in a third person into a phone conversation if need be. You can speak to 2 different people who can be at 2 different locations. This amazing feature can be used for personal conversations and for discussing any serious business strategies with 2 of your colleagues at work.

There are several other features that make the home phone an indispensable device to have around at home or at work. Take the feature called "��call waiting"��. This feature lets you know with a discreet beep (that only you can hear) that there is another call waiting while you are already on a call. You can put the current call on a brief hold and check the importance of the waiting call and revert back to the previous call "�" all by simply pushing a couple of buttons. The same feature with an additional function is Call waiting Call ID, as the name signifies, it is a combination of call waiting and Caller ID and allows you to not only detect a waiting call, but also lets you know the identity of the caller. It is up to you to either take the call or simply ignore it. It is quite easy and user friendly. Another feature that respects your privacy and gives you the freedom to either take a call or simply ignore it is Caller ID. The number of the person calling is flashed on the screen, giving you the opportunity to take it or leave it. The several other useful features are Anonymous call reject that allows you to reject anonymous calls that do not display the number, Speed dial that allows you to store most frequently dialed numbers that can be called by dialing just one number and call forwarding that allows you to have calls forwarded to any number of your choice. All these features are available with Time Warner Phone
