Default Louder

My neighbor asked me a very interesting question yesterday. He cut the
landline last year. When in his woodshop, he wanted to know if anyone made a
device to connect to his cell phone to make the ringer louder so he could
hear it when he was in the wood shop. I told him I never heard of a device.
Anyone hear of such a thing?

There are various docking stations that let you connect your cell phone to
your home phone wiring and let all your regular phones talk to your cell
phone as if it were a POTS line. With something like that, whatever
ultra-loud ringer he had connected to his landline phone would work as
before. I would expect that there must be some sort of solution involving
BlueTooth. It probably was designed into my V3M and then disabled by
Verizon.

why doesn't he just put it on vibrate and clip it to his belt?

In a wood shop, with saws and planers running, you don't want to do anything
that might provoke you to involuntary motion of your hands or head.

I'd imagine, that when it comes down to dollars and cents, the cheapest, most
reliable solution is going to be a no-frills landline.

And a phone suddenly ringing load enough to hear over the noise of saws and
planers isn't likely to "provoke you to involuntary motion of your hands or
head"? That's what voice mail is for - answer the phone when you aren't
able to do so.

Look, I don't mean to start an argument; I was just going by my own
experience. I've been known to jump when a vibrating phone went off in my
pocket, but never (or almost never) when all the phone did was ring. YMMV,
obviously.

And what has voicemail got to do with it? If you don't answer the call, it
goes to voicemail. It has nothing to do with whether you were startled by the
ring. Right?

I know what you mean. I'll jump when my phone vibrates even when just
sitting watching TV. But that's my point entirely - that if I'm doing
something that involves my uninterrupted attention, such as operating power
tools, then I'd eliminate the possibility of the distraction entirely and
let the call go to VM.
