Why we're here
We wanted a phone company where customers were treated as we’d treat our own family, where everyone—young and old—would feel welcome and understood, and where prices were fair. More than fair. A phone company that didn’t nickel and dime you with hidden fees, that didn’t tie you up in inscrutable contracts, or fine you for cancelling them, and that didn’t make you feel like just another row in a database.
That’s why we started Community Phone.
Home is where your landline is
At Community Phone, we offer simple, reliable landline phone service for homes and businesses. Our phone service does not require internet, and works during power outages. It’s powered by our landline base, a device that connects your landline phone to cell towers in your area. Simply plug the device into an outlet, plug your phone into the base, and enjoy unlimited local and long distance calls in the US.
We also give you full control over how you use your phone. Transfer your landline number onto a cell phone, or forward calls from a landline and get rid of your existing service completely. Have calls ring on multiple phones at the same time, or route calls to different phones based on a custom dial menu. Send voicemail recordings to your inbox. All with helpful, accessible customer support.
Our founder, James, started Community Phone in 2018 after his grandmother walked into a big carrier's store with an email problem. Rather than helping her learn about her email, the salesman pushed her into purchasing a $1,000 cell phone she could neither afford nor understand. James decided that enough was enough and launched himself on a quest to create a better phone company.
