Can you use cell phones on landline connections?

Aug 24, 2019
Hello all,

I was just talking to someone on discord, that lived in a very rural area. They mentioned how most people don't have cell phones, or smart devices, because they don't have cable or cell coverage. But they do have landlines. My first thought was, 'can you use a land line connection with a cell phone?'

After some googling, I wasn't able to find anything. So I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of this being done. Like a cell signal send/receive device, just connected to a land line for the call. Is this even possible?


No you can't, land line needs a cable connected to it. They make wireless phones for home use where the base is connected to a telephone company line. There are devices that will route your house phone number to your cell number, that is called call forwarding.
