Cell Phone and Home Phone Become One

Teach Your Old Phone New Tricks

Cancel your landline, but keep your home phone working.

Xtreme Technology Corporation Reinvents the Home Phone System by Integrating the Cell Phone with the Home Phone

The new XLink simultaneously integrates up to three cell phones into your landline phone system, allowing consumers to make cell calls conveniently through the home phone

Calgary, Alberta—– Xtreme Technology Corporation is proud to announce the reinvention of the home phone system with the revolutionary new XLink, the world’s first multiple cell phone Bluetooth gateway. The new XLink BT & BTTN models seamlessly pass cell phone calls through the regular telephones throughout your house and come equipped with a new long distance solution, eliminating costly service charges and saving consumers money.

The XLink family comes at a time when people have begun to rely heavily, if not exclusively on their cell phones. With a tight economy, consumers have been cutting corners where they can, and landline phone service has been one of the first things to go. The BT & BTTN route cell phone calls through the regular phone systems in the house even when you have decided to abandon landline service.

The XLink products allow people to make and receive cell phone calls through their landline while cell phones can sit charging in a convenient location where service is good. Simply plug in the Xlink, and the cell phone’s Bluetooth connects wirelessly to the XLink. Each cell phone line has a distinct ring throughout the house, making the line easy to identify. When making a call, users can choose which cellular line, or the landline to make a call from.

*Neilson reports that seventeen percent of U.S. households — 20 million homes —about 17% have already ditched their home landlines, relying instead on mobile phones. “With one in five U.S. households expected to be without a landline phone by the end of 2008, we see the XLink as an ideal solution for consumers ready to make that step,” remarked CEO Chris Becker. “The XLink family has arrived to make cutting the cord less traumatic.”

Cutting the cord isn’t for everyone. According to Neilson, about 10% of the people who experimented with wireless only in their homes returned to add a landline service. The XLink BTTN supports your regular landline service while simultaneously routing up to three cell phones through your home phone system, effectively making your home phone the carrier of all four lines. With advanced upgradeability, the XLink can ensure compatibility with new cell phones and download features such as Skype support (available in 2009).

The new XLink comes ready to save consumers even more money by including a cost effective long distance call service solution, unlimited long distance calling for only $25/month. The Xlink BT & BTTN have an MSRP of $69.99 and $99.99 respectively. Since the average “cord-cutters” are saving $33 a month, the BT pays for itself in about two months.
