Telco and a multi-line handset

Post by grecni » Thu Oct 07, 2010 11:41 am

I tried searching for this in the forums but did not find anything.

I currently have a Hub/Scout setup with 2 phone numbers and connecting to a multi-line handset. I have one line connected to the hub and the second line connected to the scout. This allows me to have the phone numbers on separate lines. I'm thinking of upgrading to a Telco but I'm not sure how I would use a 2 line phone with the Telco.

Anyone have any information on this?

Thank you.

Ooma Telo doesn't have a partner device that can provide a dialtone via phone port like the Scout.

The only way to drive two physical phone lines with the Telo is to buy two Telos.
The simultaneous second line with a Telo can only be used with a Telo handset.
