  •  I don't mind calls from real people (7+ / 0-)

    who are volunteers. I go out of my way to be nice. It's the robocalls that really irritate, in part because my phone is downstairs and I am upstairs. Obviously, long past time for me to get more phones, but I digress.

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!

    •  More Phones (5+ / 0-)

      In the family house where I grew up we had two phones, one upstairs and one downstairs, and that was fine.  Now, however, my mother, who is 87, is living alone in the house and it takes awhile for her to get from one end to the other.  

      We solved the problem by buying a base phone (that plugs into the phone box) with 4 wireless extentions that just need an electric plug.  Now she has one phone downstairs and five upstairs; in the kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom, and computer room.

      The system I found was in one of the big box stores.  Hope this helps.
