I am still in need of a solution. It is not a 2 phone (cordless) it is 1 and know I have not solved the problem, I was hoping you would be able to help. I am not interested in purchasing anything other than what I already have.
Please help me resolve my problem, it doesn't sound like anyone has looked at or reviewed it. 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.
