Default Can we use Bluetooth head set with Landline Phones ?

I am using my cordless very extensively for telecommunication (by land line) due to poor mobile reception in this area. But during conversation my hand (at least one) get engaged and i can't continue doing other things like surfing, or other chores.

Is there a way to use mobile bluetooth head set with landline phone ?

T-Bhp mates / Gurus please help

cheers

Amazon.com: AT&T EP5632 5.8 GHz Digital BlueTooth Enabled Cordless Phone with Answering System: Electronics

Amazon.com: Uniden CellLink ELBT595 5.8 GHz Digital Expandable Cordless Flip Phone with Color LCD, Answering System, and Bluetooth Capability (Titanium): Electronics

Just a couple I had run across when I was looking for something similar...

Never seen any landline/cordless phones with Bluetooth connectivity in India though and it may be difficult to procure offline.

Also, take into consideration A.S.S.

Try this Siemens unit:

Buy Siemens Gigaset SL785 Digital Cordless Telephone and Answer Machine, Twin DECT online at JohnLewis.com

I have it and it works brilliantly with a bluetooth handset.

Alternative is if your cordless handset is RCA jack compatible. You can then plug in a wired handsfree from a mobile phone & clip the handset to your belt.

The cordless handset of my Panasonic cordless phone had a stereo jack which was compatible with my Nokia handsfree. So used to plug in the Nokia handsfree kit to the cordless handset, and work while I also spoke on the phone.

I have always wondered why it's called "do it yourself" and why not "do it myself" LOL.

just kidding @snagg1. Hacking a landline phone should be easy but I doubt if it will look good. I suggest you buy a cheap phone with headphone connectivity.

Slightly OT I suppose, but does anyone know where I can get a 2-line phone (landline) either cordless or "wired" in Bangalore? I currently have two separate phones one for PSTN and the other for intercom and it's a nuisance.

Got this phone last year VTech LS6245 | Expandable cordless phone system with Bluetooth® wireless technology and touch controls on the handset and base

Although I never use it with bluetooth, it does connect. Got it because of it's sleekness.
Looks great in the living room and office desk.
