Best cordless phone plus Bluetooth

This is one of the best phones I’ve ever owned.  Crystal clear, doesn’t cause interference on the WiFi network using DECT, and all the usual features plus one REALLY cool feature. You can connect your cell phone to this system via Bluetooth so when someone calls you at home on your cell phone, you don’t have to make a mad dash to find the cell phone to answer it. You can receive and make calls on your cell phone using the house phone handset. Very Cool.
