I recently installed a Wireless Home Phone base station in my home. I need to use it with 2.4 GHz wireless home phones. It seems like the sound is not as good using the wireless phone as opposed to one connected to the base station directly.
I know that cellular service uses compression and am wondering if that is interacting with the wireless handsets.
Does anyone have any information on this?

If 2.4GHz phones are not performing well with the base, try 5.8GHz models. If a friend has one that can be borrowed, you can see how well it works before buying.
VTech/at&t makes several models to choose from.
Thanks for your quick response. I did a little more investigating. The Wireless Home Phones (WHP) are 3G. My network extender is 4G-LTE and the WHP won’t connect to it; so the signal strength to the WHP is a little weak (1 solid blue light). I think that is what I am seeing in the sketchy transmission quality. I am replacing the WHP with a Verizon LTE Internet and Home Phone that should be able to use the network extender.
Do you have broadband service to your home? Have you thought about a VoIP service instead of wireless thru Verizon? I switched from WHP to VoIP first thru Verizon Fios when Verizon doubled the line access fee from $10/month to $20/month. Now I use OOMA. Much less expensive than WHP if you already have a broadband connection in your home.
I do have broadband and own an base unit. I wasn’t happy with the voice quality over Ooma and abandoned it several years ago. $20/mo. is still half what Century Link was charging me for POTS w/o Long Distance.
