We had multi-line (4) land-line (copper wire) residential account with AT&T before our home burned down in Santa Rosa fires. We learned having more than one line is about $10 per line...so we are thinking of having a three line phone, maybe 4 to include our fax.
QUESTION: Can our residential account have "call hunting"? I.e., if we are on line 1 and a call comes into line 1, will the signal then move to line 2? On 1/14/14, on a locked post, the answer was that a business account is required...5 years later, I am hoping we can have this "hunting" service on a residential account? Is this so? I presume a business account is expensive!
You can use Advanced Call Forwarding to ring every line simultaneously (up to 5 telephone numbers) which could function as a poor man's hunt group. Just make sure none of the lines includes Call Forward Busy to Voicemail.
