Vonage Currently, there are 6 sets of wires (2 for each of the 3 phones). Again, each phone

Currently, there are 6 sets of wires (2 for each of the 3 phones). Again, each phone accepts 2 wires & each of these wires is carrying 2 lines so there's a total of 4 lines per phone. I've been reading & it seems apparent that most 4-line telephones are like this, having only 2 ports to accept 2 telephone cords.

Yes, the ideal way is to get into the building's phone wiring so you don't have to use the modular couplings & phone splitters & just use the existing jacks. But I think the most difficult task will be finding someone with the knowledge to do it. When I called Vonage customer support & started talking about 4-line telephones & jacks which support 2 lines, they thought I was from outer space. They thought I was some mad scientist experimenting with the phone lines with my own telephone inventions. I asked some of them if they even knew what a 4-line telephone was & rather than be honest & say no, they quickly tried changing topics (probably thinking the call might be recorded in which their lack of knowledge would perhaps affect their job security). Some of the calls were routed to India & the Philippines & it was obvious that the people I was talking to had never seen a 4-line telephone before. They simply told me (incorrectly) that it was not possible to use a 4-line telephone with Vonage. The calls that were routed within the U.S. or Canada at least knew what a 4-line telephone was but were unfamiliar about its exact method of operation - most people even in the U.S. & Canada who've never owned a 4-line telephone do not know that 2 phone lines can be carried by a single telephone cord coming out of a single jack. So if the Vonage customer support have no idea how to set this up with couplers & splitters, what are the chances that they would know how to do it with hardwiring? And if Vonage doesn't know, what are the chances that an outside company would? My guess is that you'd have a hard time finding someone with the know-how. And the search could cost you. Some contractors charge you a ridiculous flat rate for a visit, regardless if they solve the problem or not.

Another huge barrier is the building manager. If you use Vonage in an apartment or office building, chances are your manager will not let you touch the main wiring. That's why in the Vonage website they refer to this process as "home wiring". By the way, a way around this is to get the installation guy to wear a uniform (if he's not already wearing one) & just tell the manager he is with the phone company trying to fix your phone or add a line. You might just get away with it...

Again, it'd be great to have this hardwired so you don't have to deal with couplers & splitters but I'm only trying to be realistic.

Another aspect I didn't think about is how would the call quality be with 4 lines in use? Does anyone have any experience with multiple lines? How do the calls sound when lines are in use simultaneously?
