So with my Ooma Office install, I have to get new phones for the office because the system we have now is all digital. We currently have 4 lines, we’re going to downsize to 3 lines (one of our existing lines gets at least 25 Telemarketer calls a day)
Currently, all of our phones are 4 line phones, and I can access line 1,2,3 or 4 from any phone…I can put someone on hold at one place and have the other person in the office pick it up without a transfer. It’s a small office, so transfers aren’t really necessary.
What I’m looking for is a set of phones that will still work this way because I don’t want to have to deal with transfers to someone that sits five feet away from me. I’m technically proficient, but not so much with phone systems, so I’m not entirely sure how everything is handled with them, but I will be learning as I go.
For this to work, can I just purchase 4 analog 4-line phones, or will I need some kind of phone system like the AT&T 1070 as a base station with 1040s as the other phones? The AT&T 1040s are something I’ve found locally that I could purchase, but I don’t know if they’ll work by themselves. Any other phones people might have recommendations on are welcome to. Thank you.
