Home Phone and headset
« on: October 03, 2014, 12:57:21 PM »
I have a co-worker who is quitting and going to a new job.  She will be working from home.  She has centrex service with a wall phone.  She wants a newer phone with a wireless headset.  Plus now she wants an answering machine with the phone.

I had picked out the following:
Aastra 480e 1-Line phone (has a headset jack)
Jabra Pro 9450 wireless headset

But now she wants an answering machine on the phone.  She doesn't want to subscribe to the CO voicemail. 

I cannot seem to find a set up.  Any ideas for work at home set ups?

Thanks, Rhonda

Look at them as two separate devices . pick the headset phone then a stand alone answering machine. Or better yet get a google voice number and use that vm

You can buy a used stand alone answering machine from salvation army thrift store for a couple of bucks.

I've sold a few key systems to customers with only one line.  :003:

A used A C S with a small VM card comes to mind.

I'll second that - for the lowest cost alternative

I noticed about a week ago, the number one selling cordless phone on Amazon is about $13, and around $23 with an answering machine.

Thanks for your input.  She went with the phone and headset I suggested and ended up getting voicemail from the CO. 

Don't you just hate it when the "good ones" leave for other jobs and leave you behind with the ...?  :016:

Thanks again!
