Sprint Phone Connect System 1 is a fixed wireless voice terminal that provides high-quality home and office phone service using the Sprint voice network instead of a landline or broadband connection. This sleek all-in-one device includes two Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunication (DECT) phones and can be used with up to four handsets, making it scalable to a family or small business. It does not need to be plugged in a wall jack or other devices in order to make a phone call. Therefore, it eliminates the need for additional devices or equipment. It also allows business and consumer users to replace their landline service and maintain the features they are accustomed to from a landline phone provider.
The Sprint Phone Connect plan offers unlimited local and long-distance calling while on the Sprint network for one low price and allows the user to consolidate phone services into one bill.

Sprint Phone Connect System is a fixed wireless voice terminal that provides high-quality home and office phone service using the Sprint voice network instead of a landline or broadband connection for their home or desk phone. This all-in-one device eliminates the need for additional devices or equipment. It allows business and consumer users to replace their landline service and maintain the features they are accustomed to from a landline phone provider, such as voicemail, call waiting, caller ID (phone number only unless contact is in device address book), call forwarding (additional charges may apply), three-way calling and call restriction.
“Sprint Phone Connect System offers a high-quality and reliable landline replacement option for families or businesses looking to save some money on their monthly phone bill,” said David Owens, vice president-Product Development, Sprint. “Sprint Phone Connect System includes everything a customer needs to activate service and makes it easy for them to take their home or office phone to a new location or set up a temporary office without losing valuable time waiting for the local telephone provider installation.”
Although preliminary results from the July–December 2012 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) indicate that approximately 40 percent of American homes had only wireless telephones, there are still a significant number of people who want or need the security of a home or office phone in addition to their wireless phone.
Sprint Phone Connect System offers homeowners an opportunity to save over expensive traditional phone service and eliminates installation charges. Businesses, home offices or small offices can reduce costs with savings on their expensive monthly fees for their landline phone. Additionally, businesses with frequent moves, including temporary office locations for construction, retail operations or events companies will appreciate the simple self-installation with Sprint Phone Connect System and easy plug-and-play redeployment instead of waiting for wireline installation.
This easy-to-use system includes two Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunication (DECT) phones and can support up to four handsets (additional handsets sold separately), making it scalable for a family or small business. Sprint Phone Connect System does not need to be plugged into a wall jack or other devices in order to make a phone call.
For those who already own conventional corded or cordless phones, Sprint also offers Sprint Phone Connect 2. This plug-and-play device lets users plug their current office or home landline phone into the Sprint Phone Connect terminal and use the features they are accustomed to from a landline phone provider. It is compatible with most conventional corded and cordless phones.
