I cannot find anyone in New Zealand who sells a 2-line analog corded phone.

I have two lines coming into my house. One is personal the other is business and I want one handset to deal with them.

Surely I can't be the only person who has two phone lines coming into their home, am I?

Where can I find such a phone???

Try ringing the TelstraClear store in Wellington. They've been trying to get rid of ~$400 Aastra dual line phones for around $25 for the past year.

Seems they have not a single dual line telephone in Wellington. I asked about the Aastra and they said they weren't aware of any dual-line aastra phones that they carry

"We are only able to source 2 Lines phones as a cordless. There are no 2 Line Corded Phones available in NZ."

I used to have the predecessor to these:

... which worked well.

Well...I guess this explains why I'm having a hard time.

Does nobody in New Zealand have a need for dual-line phones other than me?

I have a need for two line phones in my shop but we use the uniden cordless one has worked really well but the belt clips are rubbish.


Great thing is 2 phones can be used at the sametime .


I realise that you wanted a corded one but may have to cut the wire


good Luck Alan

They had a stack of them in the corner of the shop and the window that they've been trying to get rid of for ages, I saw they still had a few left a month or ago ago but they've obviously sold them all.

I have three inbound numbers at home, but use VoIP so each has a different ringtone, so I know who is calling from where.

If you can't find an analogue dual line phone, maybe swapping to VoIP would be an option?

Thanks but that appears to be two handsets not dual-line. Also, really need it to be a corded phone.

Um, its basically the phone I cited above. Multiple handsets is irrelevant. All the handsets can pick up all the lines it supports.

good reading....
"The XDECT R is a 2 Line Capable Cordless Phone, ideal for people wanting one phone line for Home and one phone line for Business."

Also look at the display on the base unit.

Yes. I asked this question last year and apart from TelstraClear shop having them I came up empty. When I called their shop the guy who I spoke to had no idea what a two line fone was. There's plenty on Amazon but they won't ship them to you here in NZ..
