Go to https://www.ooma.com/products to see new Ooma HD2 handset and New Linx DECT Wireless Phone Port Extender.

The Ooma Office can be plugged into and power source that has the following specifications:
Input 100 to 240 VAC, 0.1 A, 50 to 60 Hz

The new Linx DECT Wireless Phone Port Extender allows you to remotely connect a corded phone, corded fax machine, or other phone line connected device, to your Ooma Telo; without having to run phone cables through-out your home or business.

Does this configuration work with Linx (I have Premier service):
1. Assign phone number 1 to the telo box. Plug a regular corded phone to the telo box.
2. Assign phone number 2 to Linx. Connect the Linx's phone jack to one of the home phone jacks to distribute Ooma signal to all other phone jacks (I'm already distributing Ooma signal throughout my house). There are both DECT 6.0 and non-DECT 6.0 cordless phones plugged in to the other phone jacks. Note: These are just regular cordless phones, not HD2 or old HD handsets.
3. An incoming call to phone number 1 should only ring the corded phone (that is plugged to the telo box). Similarly, an incoming call to phone number 2 should only ring other phones (behind the Linx device.)
4. Outgoing calls made from the corded phone (which is plugged to the telo box) would use line/phone number 1. Similarly, outgoing calls made from the other phones (behind Linx) would use line/phone number 2.
5. Two simultaneous incoming/outgoing calls can be received/placed.
Bottom line: Does Linx make two "virtual" phone lines work just like 2 separate "physical" lines WITHOUT HD2/HD handsets?

Yes to all except there is no correlation between phone numbers and lines.
The first call, no matter where it is placed from, always uses line 1.
A second call, while line 1 is in use, uses line 2.

But I can use **0/1 to pick a line, right?

No. They pick the number that will be used.
The Telo has two pipes to the server. If neither pipe is in use pipe 1 is always used.
Pipe 2 is only used when pipe 1 is already busy.

Yes but so would a phone line from the Telo phone port.
