I'm strugging with the same thing. I wish they planned to preserve the two line concept in the TELO. Even if it was in the hub.

They do as far as everything I've read. The instant second line will be able to be accessed from any Telo handset just like it can be accessed from any connected scout (with a connected phone) now.

I wasn't clear. You don't get two lines to plug telephones into. At least that is what I believe but I could be wrong.

You plug your own phone into the telo hub and the telo phone is the second line phone.
If you look close at the hub picture you can see a 1 2 at the top.

I could be wrong, but that's the way it looks to me.

What picture are you referring to? If the Hub provides both lines, that would be awesome. It would take care of all of the Scout issues that seem to happen.

Well, actually, the hub provides only one line like the present one. You would still have to answer the second line either by flashing over or picking up the telo phone. Not sure how the telo phone would handle line one and line two, but I guess we'll have to wait and see.

I did a google search for telo images and found one with a good view of the front of the telo. Now to find a good view of the phone.

This is the best view I can come up with

It's fairly large, so I will not embed

That is what I thought.

It isn't what I and the other person were talking about. We felt not having two physical lines to plug standard phones into was a loss compared to the current hardware.

You're correct, it doesn't look like you would be able to have 2 lines as you can now - one connected to a hub and the other connected to a scout.
