Panasonic KX-TH1212B Cordless Phone


The KX-TH1212B works exactly as advertised for me. I was able to link my wife's old Moto Razr and my Palm Treo 680 with a simple push of the button and scan with the phone. The phones link up when moved into range and stay linked reliably. I can...

Panasonic KX-TH1212B Cordless Phone


We love this phone - almost. Let me explain. Build quality seems to be good. Volume is great and very clear. Automatically connects via Bluetooth. It also has some really nice unique features. It's got a nice bright white LED screen. Our only beef with...

Being able to receive cell phone calls on your regular home phone is great. It automatically connects via Bluetooth whenever you're near

Being able to use it on your regular home phone line is spotty. Panasonic has non-existent customer service, they just expect you to mail them the unit

Bluetooth Home Base Station


Allows answering your cell from your home handsets.

Problems dialing out, sound quality, frequent reconnects.

Panasonic KX-TH1212B Cordless Phone


I have been waiting for a decent home phone system with Bluetooth for a long time. The other phone companies could never get it right, according to reviews, and the first generation Panasonic was 2.4GHz. With Bluetooth using 2.4GHz and streaming video...

Bluetooth to connect to 2 cell phones at a time, different ring tones for the landline and each cell phone, DECT 6.0 (1.9GHz), central phone book in the base, talking caller ID

Dropped calls on the landline (on my second set of phones hoping this set does not drop calls), only one line or cell phone can be used at a time, dialing tones are way to loud

KX-TH1212B is solid


The KX-TH1212B doesn't have an answering machine built in, but that's good for me as I already have an answering machine, or I can rely on my cellular voicemail. Also, the KX-TH1212B cannot access any of your cell phone features, other than making and...

Links up readily via Bluetooth to my Samsung U960 Rogue, which lets me place my phone where the cellular reception is good and keep a handset where the cellular signal is unacceptable. Solves a difficult problem. I've owned Panasonic landlines for...

There is a slight delay between answering the phone and when the other party can start hearing you ("Hello, hello?"). Annoying at first but manageable after you get used to delaying your greeting for a beat. The advantages far outweigh this shortcoming

Good Product


Brought for home usage and it works great ! I havent tested the bluetooth feature completely, but the voice quaility and signal strength is very good. Very light weight comparing to other phones like uniden. I would refer to my friend

It should have 110- 240volts charging adapter

Works...then stops working.


I still use the handsets for this system to expand a compatible Panasonic expandable system. There are only cosmetic differences with this particular handset generation across products.

Handsets and recharger bases can be used with other Panasonic systems

Linking your land-line handset to your mobile phones with Bluetooth is a wonderful idea, and a few manufacturers have tried to implement it, but I haven't found a single one that will stay working for longer than the warranty. I couldn't get this...

Innovative Design, Good Features


Bluetooth works flawlessly. I had been concerned with echo and delay, but the sound quality is excellent. The phone allows for smart editing incoming phone numbers for use in the phonebook. I use this with a landline and two cell phones and it works...

Works for me w/multiple cellphones


- We don't use the landline feature. - It would've been nice if it was possible to import the phone books from the M1 and Bberry to the Cell-link... - Incoming caller ID generally shows only the caller #, not name, but if you the incoming # is in the...

I got the Panasonic Cell-link because we have really terrible cell coverage in our house, to the point that we could barely use any cellphones ; So far, it's been great ; I've partnered this unit successfully with both my Sanyo M1 (Sprint PCS), and my...

None, really

Product Specifications

Your cell phone is your "lifeline". It keeps you connected at work, on the road, even at home. And now, there's a better way to make and receive calls at home with ultimate comfort and convenience. Panasonic Link-to-Cell uses Bluetooth technology to connect your cell calls to your home handset extensions. No more running for your cell, walking around for good reception, or cradling that little phone on your shoulder. Better yet, you get to tap into your free cell minutes for talk time and you can charge your cell while using the home handsets. Now, that's convenience! Just link any Bluetooth-enabled cell phone to your Link-to-Cell base unit and you're good to go. It's that easy. Set up takes only seconds, and you can link up to two phones at once. Talking Caller ID3, 4 lets you know who's calling and custom ring tones tell you which cell phone is ringing.
