3 numbers?

Post by msfendt » Mon Oct 12, 2009 4:17 pm

Does anyone know what the configuration would be for 3 numbers? What equipment would be needed. Would I have to subscribe to premier? I currently have 2 lines through vonage and 1 line through time warner ( digital phone ). Any info would be appreciated.

each additional number is $4.99 per month
the hub/scout combo can only handle 2 active calls at the same time
if you need 3 active calls you need at least 2 hubs + premier

Thanks for your response. I don't need 3 active calls at one time, would I still need premiere and could I do it with 1 hub?

yes, 1 hub + scout +premier gives you 2 independent lines, extra number gives you third number

Just so there is no confusion, you will need premiere and that entitles you to the second number as part of the cost. A single hub with scout or Telo with an extra handset will allow two concurrent, independent calls. A hub or Telo with premiere may have up to 10 numbers assigned to it, but each additional number beyond the second has a $4.99/mth additional charge.

The other number(s) may be in other areas of the country, allowing you to appear to have a local number in other places. Therefore, callers from that area may call you without incurring long distance because they are making what to them is a local call.

Each phone number can be given its own ring pattern and be shared so that all phones or Telo handsets will ring, or a scout or Telo handset can be assigned a specific number so that other devices do not ring at the same time.

You don't even need a scout if you just want all phones attached to the phone jack of the hub to ring when any of the 3 numbers are called. You can still have distinctive rings. What you can't do without a scout are two concurrent calls.

I don't think you need to subscribe to Premier service to get additional numbers. Without it, each number after the first would be $4.99 per month.
