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.msfendt wrote: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?
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.
