Straddling Wireless Carriers II

Filed under: Cordless Phones

Features that, more often than not, have been disabled by a number of wireless carriers include call timers on several digital telephones. While this particular function may not amount to much in the grand scheme of things, its exclusion from a communication unit’s user options, whether it be from a corded digital telephone or cordless phone, still means that the device the user has been saddled with is already one feature less from what that user should have. It’s not quite ideal for any consumer to feel that he or she is missing out on anything, particularly if the user in question should have been entitled to such an option in the first place. And we’re still on call timers. We haven’t touched on Wi Fi yet.

Indeed, with the growing popularity of gadgets the likes of cordless phones, headsets and others that are equipped with Wi Fi technology, one would think that nearly all wireless carriers are already scrambling in over themselves in their feverish attempts to provide consumers with this service. However, a considerable portion of cordless phones in both the mobile cordless phone and landline communication industries launch gadgets with crippled Wi Fi capacities.

This has also been the case with Bluetooth services. The lack of reliable Bluetooth services in many cordless phones is a constant source of aggravation for tech users who have quite a professional and personal attachment to the said technology.

GPS services too often get the cut from other cordless telephones in the market as well. So for those who wish to use theirs would only meet with grave disappointment.

The next question that begs to be asked is: what is being done about this? Are we getting anywhere in our objections at all?
