Currently my hub and scout are shared devices. I have two lines and like how they both ring on all the phones in my house, the distinctive ring tones are nice. I would like to set things up so that when calls go to voicemail, each number has its own distinct greeting. Basically one line is personal and one is business. Is there any way to do this? If I assign each number to a hub and a scout won't they just ring on the phones connected to them? I want all phones to ring both numbers.

Get a two line multi-handset cordless phone system.
Assign one of your numbers to a scout.
Connect the hub to line 1 of the cordless phone system
Connect the scout to line 2 of the cordless phone system.
Sit the hub and scout side by side.
Connect their wall jacks together and no place else.

Both lines ring on all handsets.
Each line has it's own mailbox.
You can place calls from either line.

Hm. I took for granted that with a second Premiere line I would be able to set up a second outgoing message. A little disappointing, but I still love this system.
