I have a 2talk personal line on trial but am looking at swapping to the 5 line business account once the service proves reliable (currently on 2 x VFX lines).

I am using a Grandstream 2000 and looking to add more.  I am hoping, using the "2talk One Number" service I can have multiple sip logins using the -- etc suffix for multiple extensions.  This works fine with the soft phone testing I have been trying.

My goal is not to have an exchange in the office but to use 2talk.  Am I able to transfer calls from say 123-4567 to 123-4567-1 (ie another phone on the same 2talk one number login)?

Cheers
Andy

Would an SPA9000 do the job interfacing 2talk and Grandstream 2000's?

I wouldnt give up that easily.. there are lots of other options with 2talk that might give you a better solution.. Hunt groups .. call diverts .. and auto attentant .. may solve whatever you are trying to achieve .. but in a different way to what you may be thinking.

Thanks for the encouragement.  What I want to do is have 2-3 ip grandstream phones on the same phone number using 2talk one number and be able to put a call on hold and get another phone to be able to pick up the call.  Small office so we can yell at each other to pick it up.

At the moment if I answer a call on one of the phones there does not appear to be away to take over or join in the call on another phone on the same line using one number.

Hope that makes sense.

Raspberry pi and freepbx looks a good option but if I can fo it more simply all the better.

Make each line a DDI with it's own free 028 number. Use this as your hunt group. Set CID for 028 lines to your local number.

NB: don't do this with too many lines or things will start to get glitchy.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

And of course give them each a short extension number.

Yip, that's the answer with the trial service.

With the $35 dollar business pack you can have up to 5 local call number iirc.

You just assign each one an extension number.

I had it working well with the standard set up for a while, but when I moved the customer to 2Talk+ it broke and I haven't been able to fix it.

As CB says, just use the pilot to ring on to the other numbers using the locate me menu.

And if you're doing that, make sure the phone knows about your short numbers in its dial plan or there's a delay while the phone figures out what you're wanting it to do.

Thanks don and CB. I just wanted to make sure this was possible once I change to the business plan from the trial personal plan.

I can honestly say without a doubt that the SPA9000 is the one of the biggest pieces of junk I've ever come across. It even makes Grandstream products stand out as quality!

Do not get one under any circumstances, you will regret it!

The UC320 on the other hand isn't a bad wee unit, has it's flaws but is a vastly superior product.

Thanks for the advice. If I go the pbx way the raspberry and freepbx seems a good option. Configurable, inexpensive and tiny.
