Although cell phones are the most popular devices for communication, land lines still do have their place in households and offices. They also have the advantage of being a lot cheaper to purchase than a cell phone. Land lines tend to come in two different forms. There are the wired telephones, which allows you to lift the receiver off the base for only a small distance and there are also cordless phones. Cordless phones offer portability to land lines as the phone can be lifted off the base and used without the need for any wires connecting it. The main disadvantage is that it does require an external power source so will not run when there is a power cut. The receive itself has its own battery so you will need to charge it. Here are some of the best cordless phones that we were able to find.
