A device to adapt an existing
home telephone system to use a cell phone network.
This invention is an adapter that provides access to a
cell phone network from a consumers existing telephone wiring and existing
Owning a cell phone often means two telephone bills, one
from the cell phone provider and one from the land line provider. Government
mandated telephone bill surcharges are then paid twice because the consumer
receives two separate telephone bills. It would benefit the consumer to receive
one bill for multiple phones that included cell phone usage.
This invention is an adapter that allows the existing
telephones within a consumer’s home to use a cell phone network. The land line
connection is not used and all telephone service is provided through the
cellular telephone network. The device may also include a display to indicate
antenna signal strength or other useful information.
This invention should be developed as a means to allow the
customer to consolidate their phone service through their wireless provider.
This invention could also be packaged into other products
that connect to the telephone wiring in the home. The antenna may not be mounted
directly on the device so it can be placed outside the home or in a location
that gets good reception.
