Tech Talk: Multi-tasking Made Easy with VTech

“Tech Talk: Multi-tasking Made Easy with VTech”

My kindergartener and her class recently had to learn their phone numbers and to make sure they remembered them, the teacher would have them write the numbers down, over and over again.

My daughter, a social butterfly, decided it would be best to pass her number out to all her friends in the class. Only problem, her number was actually my number and her friends would call me constantly, sometimes 5-6 times within 30 minutes.

I always put the call on speakerphone to help aid in the conversation because at 5 years old, there is only so far “soooo… what are you doing…. soooo hi….” can get you.

While I didn’t mind the first week, by the second week, I was a little tired of the calls. Oh what I would have gave to have a home phone that she could use to talk to her friends.

I couldn’t help but think that it would just make life easier and would allow myself the opportunity to multi-task as little miss chatty cathy would talk away with her little gal friends.


Enter in the VTech CS6859 Cordless Phone:


With full duplex speakerphones on both the handset and base, the whole family can speak and be heard at the same time when using this VTech Phone.

VTech brings innovative and affordable technology to consumers with this break-through product at a great price point — the “hub of the home” phone, featuring a dial-in base and multi-handset bundles.

Base speakerphone eliminates the hassle of trying to find the handset when the phone rings. Mom is free to multitask with both hands while holding a conversation through the base speaker, which acts as a second phone unit.
