I have recently added a home phone to our Consumer Cellular lineup. I added our cell phones late last year. It works great and I am very pleased with it. I do have a question though - when we get a voicemail left on our Panasonic cordless system it is followed by 4 or 5 loud beeps. This never happened with our Spectrum service and I wondered if there is something about this cell based setup that is causing that or if it is the ZTE base unit. I find nothing in the booklet that says anything about this. Not a show stopper but it is annoying.
