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.
