    Recommendations for Android VoLTE (Business) Desk Phone

    Good day!

    Would like to purchase a top of the line Android VoLTE desk phone that
    is not a toy.

    So far, the best one I found on the Internet is the TecDesk Model 6 here:
    https://tecdesk.com/model-6

    As luck would have, it appears that this phone is not sold in the US.

    Does any Forum Member know of a US (or Canadian?) re-seller?

    If not, can anyone recommend a phone with similar (or better) features
    that is currently available in the US?

    Thank you.

    Unless someone else can confirm otherwise, I seriously doubt it would be compatible with any US carrier.
    Just another day in paradise.....

    Such things seem to exist. Do a web search on "cellular desk phone".

    An alternative would be a cellular Analog Telephone Adapter. The adapter gives you cellular service and had an RJ jack to plug in whatever POTS analog phone you want to.

    Straight Talk sells one. ~$50 for the ATA and $15 a month for unlimited talk service. Uses the Verizon network. It does not do SMS text and doesn't work for fax. I tried one. It works well. Verizon also has a device and service.

    Thank you for your comment.

    However, if the phone is unlocked, chances are that it would work.

    Anyways, I inquired of TecDesk about US availability.

    We'll see.

    Thank you, Bob!

    "Cellular Desk Phone" was on of the word combinations I searched.

    Regrettably, most of the results were for outdated 2G phones.

    I'm familiar with the ST ATA -- in fact, years ago, I bought one for
    ten bucks (and threw it out). I'm sure that they are better made
    nowadays.

    However, with the exception of an OBi200 ATA used as a poor man's
    SIP proxy for a couple of GV numbers, I've upgraded to IP phones.

    Since I no longer use (or own) analog phones, I wouldn't want to
    taint my cellular desk phone evaluation with an analog phone.

    In fact, I tried Blue Tooth to cellular with IP phones, but it's not
    100%.

    As I posted originally, I'm looking for a top of the line Android
    VoLTE desk phone. We know they exist, hopefully, we'll soon know
    whether or not at least one of them is available in the US.
