    Bluewave mobile

    We use it in conjunction with our land line. It is set up to dial out using the mobile first. and we choose the land line if a slightly better quality line for a long conversation is needed. All mobile calls are made using the mobile, saving money.
    It would be great if this device could be programmed to select a particular line based on the prefix for the number being dialed. Therefore, automating the way we are using it.

    Great piece of kit

    From what it says in the manual if I didn't have a good signal anywhere it wouldn't work - but thankfully I do have just one spot where I get a signal and so it works just great!

    Useful home phone accessory.

    When connected, but switched off, it passes landline calls okay including CLI.

    Nifty gadget, which will save you a bob or two

    To get the most out of your Bluewave, you need to put in speed-dial numbers on your normal house phones to select a mobile phone to dial out with, and thus make the most of your bundled minutes - it should save a packet!

    The LiGo bluewave is a rebadged xlink bttn (usa) but it is no longer supported by xlink

    Despite ordering this item in 2016, the unit I received was made in 2012! This is a rebadged Xlink BTTN from the USA with a UK 9 volt power supply. It is easy enough to setup as long as you\'re not using it with a BT branded phone (corded or cordless), in which case the supplied RJ11 cable will not work. You can buy the correct one for around £2 but it should be included. The 5m range on the Bluetooth is very optimistic, I\'d say 2.5m was more realistic or you will experience poor audio quality. It supports Caller ID on a mobile call, but not on a landline call. You can switch the line you make an outgoing call on by pressing (R)ecall on your phone, unfortunately the Bluewave is set to 90ms but we use 100ms in the UK. Therefore it is very hit and miss unless you change the setting for your phone or the Bluewave to match. You can change the Bluewave to 100ms but you will have to connect it to a Windows PC with a USB cable and download the firmware update tool from Xlink. The tool on the Ligo website is out of date and does not work at all, neither does downloading the manual. The Xlink tool will allow you to configure the Bluewave, but not update the firmware because it is no longer supported (Ligo also confirmed this to me by phone). The firmware in the Bluewave is very old and out of date, apparently a later update fixes the Caller ID problem, shame you can\'t download it. Basically the Ligo Bluewave is obsolete so I don\'t recommend you buy it. You can import the latest Xlink BTTN from some sellers on Amazon.com or direct from Xlink in the USA, but they are significantly more than the Ligo Bluewave here, and be aware you will most likely need to source your own 9 volt UK Power supply.

    Got it for my dad.

    Where my father lives in a building with poor mobile phone reception apart from if you're near a window this device was the perfect solution so he doesn't have to go outside and make phone calls I'm so pleased that the product I'm getting one for myself.

    Excellent product!

    I had read that there would be problems with it being an older piece of equipment in need of updating and some other issues. I did receive with it some German notes on how to use it but I downloaded the English manual from Ligo and had the unit up and running in just a few minutes. I was also very pleasantly surprised by the range of the Bluetooth link. Really handy unit. Prefer taking calls on my landline system of 4 wireless VOIP Gigaset handsets connected to a VOIP hub, connected to a Three mobile router (100GB data for £30 per month). Completely wireless system, completed by getting my incoming mobile calls over the house system. I can also dial out via my mobile from the house phone system if desired. Very versatile.

    Great for vintage phone fans!

    I bought this little unit for two reasons. Firstly, having taken the decision to stop paying for a landline telephone line that I almost never use, I wanted a way to continue to use the DECT cordless phones I bought less than a year ago, and this device links them to one or more mobile phone lines really well (including the caller ID which displays on the DECT handsets).

    Secondly (and more excitingly for a retro vintage techno-geek!) this phone hub allows connection of an old GPO rotary pulse dial phone with real bells in.... so I can now actually use the old rotary dial to call out via my mobile phone! Incoming calls ring the bells in the vintage phone, albeit a little more weakly than BT line used to, and you may of course answer the call on the old phone too.

    All in all, a very useful product and a great techno-bridge between the past and the present that means anyone can use not just recent landline phones, but also those lovely old 300 and 700 series GPO phones, even if they don't have any land line at all.

    Lacking vital feature

    Unfortunately this device would be a great product but for the fact that it lacks one major feature. The item doesn't forward the incoming caller i.d.. Having either a call screening device either as a separate unit built in to the cordless phones, as many now have, means that the facility is rendered useless. Also many phones have photo i.d when it receives an incoming call which also will not work without the unit forwarding the info.
    So sad that only 2 stars for features as it has one great feature forwarding mobile calls but lacks caller i.d which means many other phone features are disabled
