Any Option other than Telo Handset for 2nd Line

Post by WGAS » Fri Jul 15, 2011 1:12 pm

Goal is to assign a desktop / conference phone in a home office to a second line (premier). There is a dedicated 2nd line through a Premier subscription. I want clients to see the 2nd line as my outgoing caller ID.

I do not want to use a Telo Handset in the home office, or use multiple Telo handsets to cover the house on the "home" line.

Maybe missing something but I haven't figure this out. Right now, I change the outgoing number under "Privacy" to switch between outgoing caller IDs, but am tired of doing this manually.

Thanks,

murphy

Precede your call with **1 to use the caller ID of the second number.

Interestingly - that does not seem to work correctly. Any idea whether GoogleVoice extension messes that up? Do use the extension & it seems that setting the privacy setting is the only reliable approach.

If you have tied your second number to GVE, it is not to be used as a normal phone number. It's sole purpose is to communicate with Google. If you need two numbers and also want to use GVE you need a third number at $4.99 per month.
