By Annphilip Subscribe to RSS | March 1st 2012 | Views:

More than necessity, home phones become a show piece in many of our houses. Today home phones are available in various shapes and colors. People become choosy, so they look for phones that will add more beauty to their home. Nowadays they are keeping home phones along with their show pieces. Will you buy a home phone that has a flunky look? Is that the only parameter to judge the quality of a home phone?

As lots of elegantly designed home phones are available in the market, you can choose one. But, you should also consider the features incorporated in the home phone. Then only it becomes an effective communication tool. Some of the features commonly available in home phones of different companies are as follows –

Caller ID- This acts like an electronic peephole. This allows a person receiving the call to see who is calling before answering the call. The caller’s telephone number or name will be displayed on the display screen of the phone. In most traditional phones, the number or name will appear after the first ring.

Caller ID on TV- By connecting home phone called ID with TV, the name and number of the calling person will appear on the TV screen. If someone is watching an interesting program on the TV, they can decide whether to answer the phone call or not. Caller ID also helps in tracing out anonymous calls.

Call waiting- This option will prioritize calls. When you are talking to a friend for a time pass, and there comes an urgent call, you can place your first caller on hold and answer the second call. With Call waiting option, you can answer a call, even if you are already on another call.

Call waiting ID – Call waiting ID is similar to Caller ID. Here you will hear a special tone and see the name and number of the calling person on your Caller ID screen, when you are on another call. You will get the option to decide whether to continue with the first caller or switch to the second caller.

Enhanced 911- By enabling this option, the emergency dispatcher automatically identifies the phone number, name and address of the person by dialing the 911.

Call blocking – This option gives you the choice of blocking and unblocking phone numbers. The blocking options are Per-call blocking and Per-line blocking. Per-call blocking option will block your phone number or name from appearing on a recipient’s Caller ID. Meanwhile, Per-line blocking option available in some states allows customers to block an entire phone line. This will block their phone number for every call they make on a specific line.

Free online Directory Search - Some home phone companies give the Dictionary search option. This free online search tool can help you to get phone numbers of specific people or business. You can also determine who owns a business or residential number by using the reverse number lookup.

Voice mail- Voice mail records the message of the caller and stores it for few hours in your home phone. The means, it helps you to know about the callers who call you in your absence. Using this facility, your callers can leave a voicemail message for you which you can receive once you reach the home.

Most of these features are available with home phones of different companies, like FiOS Digital Voice. Without any doubt, telephones have become an inevitable part of our life. We are using it for various business transactions, urgent phone calls and other things that make everything so convenient and fast. The demand for home phones was reduced with the introduction of mobile phones in the market. But, the different models and types of home phones available in the market is again making it a favorite choice among the masses.
