Many people find it convenient to be able to move freely about their home while talking on a wireless phone, instead of having to stay tethered to a landline. A wireless, or cordless phone is also handy for taking outside when you're doing gardening or relaxing by the pool. It can be useful for adding a phone extension in a room without having to install a new wall jack, if you get a multiple-handset model whose receivers connect to a single base station. The base station plugs into the wall and transmits to the wireless phone receivers. You can easily connect a wireless phone in just a few steps.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Plug the power cord into the wireless phone's base station and into a wall socket.

  2. 2

    Plug one end of a telephone cord into your telephone line's wall jack, and the other end into the phone jack of the wireless phone's base station.

  3. 3

    Insert the battery into the wireless phone receiver, if necessary, and place the receiver on the base station to charge for an initial period as instructed by the manufacturer.

Tips and warnings

  • Try to place your wireless phone's base station as high up as possible, such as on top of a filing cabinet, as this often helps improve the range of reception.
