Question about AT&T 1738 Digital Answering Machine
I need to connect to a single line on a multi line business phone. Answering machine is plugged into both the phone and wall outlet. I get nothing. Please advise. Thank you.
Out of box, the AT&T 1738 is designed to operate on a single telephone line. I don't know of any device on the market today that could automatically switch it between multiple telephone lines.
Some options include (in no particular order):
1) Purchasing additional 1738s to cover the other telephone lines.
2) Some cordless telephones on the market are designed to handle 2 telephone lines. Their answering machines will cover both lines. AT&T and Panasonic offer such phones.
3) Check out AT&T's line of NoKSU small office telephone sets. The phones will handle up to 4 telephone lines and 1 model features a built in answering machine. In order for the telephones to function 100% all phones would have to be replaced with the models within the AT&T NoKSU family.
4) If this is strictly a business application, consider purchasing a true business telephone system for the office.
