If you are in a Verizon dead zone, you will not be able to get services for this system because it uses Verizon towers. (You can go to straight talk online to see if it is available in your area just to be sure.) I do not know if AT&T have the same system for home phones but you can check the website.

Nobody seems to remember that although it advertises you don't need a PC or internet connection...the only way to order/receive service is by the use of EMAIL SERVICE. The only way to have an email is to have a PC and internet service therefore this description is very deceiving. You DO need internet, if you want to start and continue service. I feel the description is just double talk, and if you purchase this....how are you going to get service without a PC????????? The description leaves me quite disturbed since the average person probably wouldn't even give this aspect a thought!!!! Buyer Beware

It is not a Home Phone. It is a Home Phone device that you pay a $15.00 per month service fee for Local & Long Distance calling.
You plug a regular home phone into the device.

Actually, this is the wireless device that you hook up your home phone to. It may be a bit expensive, but for what you pay in phone bills, you will get your $$ back in no time.

Haven't seen that anywhere. This phone service does not operate via isp, dsl, or cable.
It is basically a cellphone base that your regular telephone plugs into. Then you can use a regular phone handset and it will call over the Verizon wireless network. It is basically a wireless cellular telephone that requires access to the Verizon wireless network.

I have lots of screeching on my end. Do I need to use another phone?

Has anyone else experienced this? Could it be my phone. The person I'm speaking to says they can hear fine and the line is clear, but I have so much screeching I have a hard time hearing them

In my 1st Answer, I mentioned a "wired jack" to test in another room. Obviously, no wired jack is needed... I was thinking of a wired telephone (or wireless) to plug into the ST Home Phone box... in any room or location.

You don't even need power if you've got the battery in the box.

I'm really not sure, but sometimes I hear an echo of my voice on mine, which I also sometimes heard with the straight talk cell phone I had.

I can't tell if that is coming from the service or the phones, but it could very well be the service since they are two totally different phones.

Also I don't hear it all of the time, but I noticed it more when standing in some areas of the house versus other areas. So, it may also depend on your service area.

You could buy another phone brand to see if it's actually the phone. Whatever the results, you can either keep it or return it. Hope this helps.

You've probably got some interference in your home. Mine had some weird noises until I changed the channel on my internet router, which was right under the ST Home Phone box. (Best to manually set routers to ch. 1, 6 or 11 rather than "auto" set.) I also put one of my DSL filter in the phone line from my wireless tel. base unit and the ST box.

Could also be other devices nearby... try it in another room, like a bedroom (if you're using a wireless phone with it or you have a wired jack there).

You might have to exchange it if you can't find a source in your home.
