one phone jack and instant second line

Post by dpsaunders » Thu Apr 23, 2009 5:44 am

I got a question:

I have a small business where I am using the hub and it's working great. I don't have a landline at all. I am in need of the instant second line and using the scout due to demand and calls picking up.

The problem is I only have one phone jack in the office. Is it feasible to have this set up at all? Is there anyway to get this to work?

any comments would be appreciated.

Set the Scout next to the hub and connect the WALL port of the hub to the WALL port of the Scout. Instant second line!

Really? Without premier service? Hmm,... So when my wife is on a marathon call to her mother, I would be able to call outbound? No incoming calls though since there is not a second phone number?
Hmm...

WITH Premier.
If my wife is on a call, I can pick up the phone on the Scout and dial out.
I have the hub and scout next to each other.
Yes, without a second number.

Same with incoming calls. If the wife is on a marathon call, another call comes in, I can answer it on line 2 (on the scout) and carry on my own marathon call.
