Community Phone

Remote First and Always

At Community Phone, we believe that everyone deserves access to reliable and affordable communication services. We’re a mission-driven company, committed to providing exceptional landline service that keeps our customers connected to what matters most- starting with our seniors who deserve a landline service that doesn’t just connect them, but protects them. We’re also revolutionizing the business landscape by keeping them in constant contact with their customers. No more missed opportunities or frustrating interactions with automated systems. We’re not just providing a service; we’re fostering relationships.

If youve ever felt the frustration of dealing with mega corporations that nickel and dime you, we get it. No robots, no scams, and definitely no hidden fees. Imagine a world where your call is answered by a human, scams are a thing of the past, and you’re not constantly watching your wallet. We prioritize transparency and trust, offering simple contracts that are free from hidden fees.

Our innovative technology enables any traditional landline phone to connect over the cellular network through a SIM card inside of our landline base, ensuring uninterrupted service (with power back-up) without the need for Wi-Fi, while offering best in class software features like robust spam call blocking.

As a venture-backed, Y-Combinator graduate, we’ve evolved from a small team in 2018 to now over 80 fully remote team members spread across 15 countries and even more time zones. We proudly serve over 15,000 customers and clients, ranging from seniors to small businesses to franchises across the United States. As we continue to grow, we’re looking for folks who share our passion for improving the lives of our customers through both technology and human connection.

Join us in redefining the narrative, where communication is personal, secure, and built on trust. Let’s connect the dots one call at a time.
