Reading up on Vonage, I see this:

"Up to 5 standard phones can be supported per line when using your home wiring. In some cases, more can be added depending on the phones’ Ringer Equivalence Number (REN)." (this from

Is there an equivalent page for an ooma hub?

Does it take one of these guys or the 10NT$ ones? Do you have to keep feeding it while a call is going on?

I've seen many of these phones (in pink, red, 50's frige green) in Korea and Taiwan. Some Korean restaurants in the US even have them to this date; works with quarters.

Actually it takes these (about 27 to the US dollar when I was first there):

It's a pretty funny phone.

1. You lift the receiver and make sure there is dial-tone (a red LED also lights up).
2. Insert coin (you can't dial until you do, and I think it blocks calls that start with 1 or 0)
3. Dial number. If your party answers, you press the button (green in my case - and the only button I have) and now you can talk (you can't be heard until you press the button, which also takes your coin). If your party does not answer, you just hang up and your coin is returned.

As I recall the LED flashes (maybe there is a tone too) when you are almost out of time... So you can feed another coin in (and press the button).

There is a key-switch on the back that turns off the need for coins.
