US Cellular launching Home Phone service soon

US Cellular is apparently getting ready to launch a home phone service, which is something other carriers like Verizon and Sprint are already offering. According to Engadget‘s information, US Cellular will provide customers with a PCD-made base station that will allow users to plug in a regular cordless or corded phone to make calls that will be routed through US Cellular’s wireless network.

The mentioned base station, model number FT2260, comes with dual-band support (800/1900 MHz CDMA), a QSC6055 chipset, two phone jacks and a USB port which is used for diagnostics. Also included in the package are a charger, an antenna and a 1500 mAh NiMH battery that is good for up to two hours of talk or 36 hours of standby time.

It is said that the carrier will offer unlimited voice calls for only $19.99 a month, and that money also gets you voicemail, caller ID, call waiting, call forwarding, three-way calling and E911 service. The exact launch date of the new service is still unknown but we’re betting this won’t be a long wait…

    I don’t see this as something that’s financially prudent. If your going to have a home phone line make it a LAN connection not wireless.
