So I have an amzing Uniden 6145bt +1 That allows me to connect two mobiles on bluetooth and 1 landline

I am now in a situation where I have got a second landline.

I am trying to discover if they have a unit that will take two landlines as well as the bluetooth.

But is there a simpler solution that I am missing ? other than the obvious of getting a second handset!

Sorry to all I didn't know which forum to place in

Multi line cordless phones were a thing a while ago, not seen one recently.

A thing that will make 2 landlines go to one phone is called a PABX - there are some cheap ones around now, but not all will pass caller ID thru to the connected phones.

VOIP




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Just saying that for the price and being turn-key solution these are great value - see here

There is a single line model available which is a little cheaper, but defeats the purpose of getting one if you have 2 lines.

There ya go...

Cordless phone at Harvey Norman.

TBH though, is there really a need for landlines?....
Port both numbers to VoIP and register them up a Yealink IP phone (or their W52 cordless phones).

Also what situation in this era could possibly require a second landline into the same place?

Sending a fax on one line and talking to family overseas on the other. Geez Skype and email haven't been invented yet!
