Hi, I'm Pete. Welcome to JustAnswer! I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question

The Echo Connect allows you to connect to your home phone to call any phone number using just your voice.

It basically turns your home phone into a hands-free, voice-dialled phone.

You don't need to have the Connect to use the Show - you can use the Show without having the Connect.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
