If it is a verizon product can it also be used on the go? How would that work as a cell phone. I would like to make this device a home phone plus cell phone for when I travel. Is that something that is possible for the $15 a month charge?

Comment: 

If you want to use it on the go, just put it in your car. The device needs 12 volt power at 1/2 an amp or less. Your car will power this for weeks without running the main battery down significantly. You can also add an external antenna for improved transmission in fringe areas.

Comment: 

Huawei will not divulge any information about using an external antenna - not even the impedience - 50 or 75 ohm. Does anyone have any specific information?

Comment: 

I bought the home phone from the local Wal-Mart in Virginia and took a trip down to Florida in my RV. I wired the home phone into the RV's house battery and had service through out the entire trip without any problems. I even had service where other Verizon cell phone users had only marginal service. The home phone works very well in a mobile environment as well as at home in Virginia.

Comment: 

Yes, this should work. You just need a compatible power source, which, if it is twelve volts as in most cars, it should work. An AC converter for using in hotels would be useful. I'd not like hauling it and a handset around, but to each their own. Also, if it is Verizon, then you should have Verizon service where you travel, otherwise, it likely won't work. No Verizon yet in Alaska and other places in U.S. Nonetheless, Verizon's signal is probably the best in the nation. And I'm not a Verizon subscriber.
