I see, so what you are saying is if you have a 2 line phone you can't use it.
Right. I was looking at the fact that you have one phone connected to the base and one phone connected to the telo "scout". That works for me but...

If you have a 2 line phone, you're out of luck I guess.

I wonder if there is still a possibility of two distinct wired lines even though the new Telo doesn't use a scout. The phone jack on the Telo might actually support two lines so you could use a two line phone or even wire the system into your house to use either line as you wished. Of course, this is pure speculation, but if the hardware supports it, great!

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
