Whidbey Telecom News - Importance of a Landline Phone

With so many choices and methods to communicate, we sometimes get asked how important it is to keep an active landline phone. While cutting expenses may be a priority in your household, here are some vital and compelling reasons why keeping your landline is more important than you might think.

  • Our 100% buried local lines allow for continued service during power outages.
  • Children and grandchildren always know where to find the phone in an emergency.
  • Cell phone reception is spotty in some areas. Cell phone voice quality is often poor and battery life on cell phones can be much shorter.
  • A home phone is connected to your address, not GPS, so the 911 operator knows exactly where to send help, even if you can't talk.
  • Voice quality is much higher when conferencing through a landline than a cell phone.
  • Your number is available for fellow community members to find in our local directory.
  • Support and repair from Whidbey Telecom is same or next day. Issues with cell phones require you to take a trip to the nearest store or Kiosk.

With a Whidbey Telecom Premium Voice landline you also get unlimited Local and Long Distance calling. Call anywhere, anytime including Canada, Alaska, and more.*

We're here to talk about your options and help you find the right plan and set of services that best fit your needs. Don't hesitate to Contact Us. And don't forget our Tech Support Center is available to assist you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

*Premium Voice unlimited long distance applis to the continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Short Tutorial – How Can I Search More Efficiently For Something On Pinterest?

Question: I like to use Pinterest to look for home decorating and craft ideas, but sometimes it takes a long time to find what I want. How can I search more efficiently for something on Pinterest?

Answer: To find things more easily on Pinterest, you can use the site's Guided Search feature. It's a great way to sift through Pinterest's 750 million boards and 30 billion pins to find just the right ideas.

Pinterest's Guided Search works like this:

  1. Type your search term into Pinterest's search bar and you'll see "Guides" pop up, which help find keywords to add to your search. Guides are scrollable -- just click on the arrow at the far right of your display to see additional options.

  2. When you click a Guide, you'll automatically add it to your original search query. Then a fresh set of Guides will appear under the search bar, and you can continue selecting more keywords to narrow your focus.

  3. Guided Search is especially valuable as a visual search engine for inspiration.
