Hi - can't seem to get a straight answer for this question so thought I'd ask here.

My set current set up:
1 x open VFX line with a Gigaset C610 and 1 standard Telecom landline

So - my VFX line is for my home studio but I want to dump the Telecom line and switch my current home number over to VFX. What I want to be able to do though is buy an extra C610 handset to use as the house phone BUT have the two separate lines - 1 for each handset.

Ideally the studio phone would also receive the house calls but with a different ringtone.

In the gigaset set up panes and manual it looks like this is all possible but I've had conflicting answers from Xnet and others.

Is anyone able to confirm this is possible? Or talk me into another solution as I don't want 2 base stations if I can get away with one.

So you want2 lines in total, the VfX line is for your studio and is already in place, the 2nd Telecom line you want to move to VfX and run on your Gigaset on a second line.

If your gigaset can run 2 lines then yes this should be possible,the advanced feature set on the home line would enable you to do sim ring, ie ring the home and studio lines at the same time, only issue will be a different ring tone as the call can't be differentiated between a normal call.

There are also options for sequential ringing where the house would ring then after a few rings ring the studio,

Hope that helps,

Hey Maverick - thanks for that. The literature for the Gigaset says I can do 3 parallel calls so, as far as I can tell that's 2 IP and then 1 on a standard line. The sequential ring thing could work as I can hear the house phone from the studio. So it sounds like I can do it with Xnet from what you're saying so shall go ahead and get the line switched over.
