Thanks to the amazing work of our BETA Testers, Experts, and Ambassadors, the Extend Home feature is now out of BETA and ready for all of our My Choice members to use.
What is Extend Home
Extend Home is a feature for the My Choice plan that extends a line of service to a regular home telephone. This feature makes it simple to answer or make calls from either the cellular phone or a home phone independently.
Extend Home is designed to help families who want to have a home phone without the added cost of home phone service, those who prefer the tactile feel and audio quality of a larger/louder dedicated phone. Extend Home is ideal for those working at home who prefer a dedicated phone for making and receiving business calls.
