I have one myself. the only thing I have against it, is that the volume of 
the person you are talking to is a bit on the low side.
apart from that, it is a good idea.
there is also a call preferences option in settings on the alexa app, and if 
you want to use the echo connect for out going calls, you can change that 
option to use it.
hope this helps.

Subject: [BCAB] Echo Connect anyone?


As I understand it,
Echo connect is a gadget which connects via a cable to one's landline
and wirelessly to an echo.
Once connected, it means that incoming calls on one's landline can be
answered using echo.
(not sure about making outgoing calls).
On the face of it this seems like a neat idea but the reviews on
Amazon are not encouraging.

I was wondering if anyone on this list has any experience of Echo Connect
and what did they think?

Many thanks,
