What Is a Cordless Telephone System, and How Does it Work?
A cordless telephone system is a type of phone where the handset is portable: It’s not tethered to the base by a cord. Unlike traditional landline phones for sale, cordless models use radio waves to transmit sounds from the base to the receiver and vice versa.
Is a Cordless Phone Considered a Landline?
Yes: A cordless phone set must be connected to a landline to function.
Are Cordless Landline Phones Safe?
Yes. Cordless landline phones are no more dangerous than a radio.
What Is the Best Cordless Phone for Home Use?
The best cordless phone for your home will depend on your needs. While you might just want a simple base with one handset for a small apartment, you may find that a cordless phone system with multiple handsets and wider range is better for a large house. You might also want to consider a model with talking caller ID and/or one that allows you to use voice commands to make calls.
What Is the Best Cordless Phone for Seniors?
The best cordless phones for seniors are ones that have the accessibility features they need. For those with arthritis, this might mean a phone with extra-large buttons and/or voice dialing.

How Do You Set Up a Landline Phone That’s Cordless?
- Plug one end of the telephone cable into the port on the phone’s base and the other end into your phone jack, just like with a traditional phone.
- Insert the round plug at the end of your cordless phone’s DC power adapter into the appropriate port at the base of your phone and the other end into an electrical outlet.
- Let the handset charge according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Press the "talk" button and listen for the dial tone to make sure the phone works.

Are Corded Phones Better Than Cordless?

What Is the Maximum Range of a Cordless Phone?

What Is the Loudest Cordless Phone?

Why Should You Keep a Landline Phone?
According to a 2017 U.S. government survey about 44% of households still use a landline phone in their home, and there’s a good reason why: Landlines are reliable. A landline phone offers consistently good audio quality and a stable connection you can count on in an emergency, when cell phone networks can get overloaded and fail. You also don’t have to worry about spotty reception or needing to recharge the battery constantly.
Can I Get a Landline Phone Without Internet?
Yes. Some providers bundle cable, Internet, and phone service in one package, which can be cheaper if you want all three services anyway, but you should be able to request only landline phone service and nothing else.
