Fame or Shame:"Dock-N-Talk™"

By Tom Martino
FOX31 News

(04.18.05) HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT SWAPPING YOUR HOME PHONE SERVICE WITH A CELL PHONE. BUT WHAT IF YOU COULD HAVE BOTH WITHOUT DOUBLING THE PRICE?

TROUBLESHOOTER TOM MARTINO PUTS THE "DOCK N TALK" TO THE TEST...

ROB PHILLIPS IS DISCONNECTING HIS HOME PHONE LINE.

YOU SEE, HE WON'T NEED IT.. IF.. THE NEW DOCK-N-TALK DOES ITS JOB.

THIS 140-DOLLAR UNIT IS SUPPOSE TO MAKE YOUR CELL PHONE POWER UP ALL YOUR HOME PHONES.

"it would be excellent because I wouldn't be chasing around looking for my cell phone wondering where my child hid it and I could dock it and pick up any phone in the house."

BUT WILL IT BE THAT EASY? OF COURSE THE WIFE READS THE DIRECTIONS... AND LIKE ANY GOOD COUPLE -- ERIN AND ROB LOVE DOING PROJECTS TOGETHER.

erin: "do you want me to point to where it goes or can you figure that out."

robb: "I'm going to go with right there...alrighty."

UNFORTUNATELY, ROB AND ERIN'S CELL PHONES ARE NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THE DOCK-N-TALK, BUT WE FOUND ONE AT THAT SHOULD WORK.

"hello? hi honey, yep it's working."

"there is a little echo here go in the bedroom...kicking me out again...can you hear me now?"

THEY BOTH SAY IT SOUNDS FINE. SOMETHING TO KEEP IN MIND -- WHILE YOU'RE TALKING ON YOUR HOME PHONE, YOU'RE ALSO BURNING CELL MINUTES.

WE GIVE THE DOCK-N-TALK -- FAME. BUT REMEMBER, YOU'LL NEED TO HAVE ONE OF FOUR-HUNDRED COMPATIBLE CELL PHONES TO USE THE DEVICE.
