Even on vacation, I am working to bring you some of the really great new products out there! While staying at my sister-in-law's we were able to try out the GoodCall Bluetooth Handset. This is one of those great Father's Day present for the dads in your life that have everything. The product will be available online and in stores at a cost of $80.
Now, I know you are wondering my thoughts. First of all, set up was soooo easy. I set up both my iphone and my sister-in-law tried her iphone today on it. It took both of us about a minute to pair our phones to the dock. The directions are fairly easy and simple. Next, this dock actually charges your phone. I am beyond impressed on its phone charging capabilities. We currently were charging our phones on a PowerMat. Compared to that, this is 100 times better! It charged my phone very, very, very quickly! This handset is so easy to use that my kids can use it:
They liked using it, and mom liked not having to worry about them dropping my phone!!! Making calls is super easy too:
You just click that green phone looking call button. That's it! If you have Siri on your iphone, it works with that also to make calls! You just hold the call button for about a second. You will then hear a beep and then say your command. You can also lift the handset from the base to answer calls too. Another awesomely cool function is that you will have the same ringtone on this bluetooth headset (aff) as you do on your phone!
Now, a couple of the cons. When my sister-in-law tried it out today, she had two issues. First, there was a range issue. It didn't work in her upstairs or in the room that was the furthest from the dock. For me at home (aff), this shouldn't be an issue, because I plan on using the Good Call Bluetooth Handset in the room I am in the most (the living room). I currently have to run from one side of the house to the other if anyone calls. (That goes for my husband too!). The other con was that she could hear fine, but the person she was talking to had some issues hearing her. However, I tried calling my husband's iPhone with the bluetooth handset and was able to hear him perfectly fine (We originally had tried this on Tuesday with no issues. We tried again tonight, and I still could hear him fine. However, we were in the same house for this test.) I am not sure if they just had a bad connection, or if it was the handset itself. (I did want to pass along her feedback, so you could make the best decision for your family regarding this bluetooth handset.)
Overall, I love this Bluetooth Handset. I know that it will make a welcome addition in our home (aff), and I am pretty sure it will in yours too! Best of all, this bluetooth handset gives you 4 hours of talk time! If you want this Good Call Bluetooth Headset (aff), I highly recommend ordering one on June 19!!! However, I am also giving one away to one lucky reader of mine!
