I am a potential new user and have several issues:
I live in a 4-story apartment building and have no way of getting to the telephone wiring. Is it true that I cannot keep my old telephones and if so, what do I buy? At the moment I have 3 corded phones and 2 cordless phones (not expandable). Thanks.

Hi! I have the same problem. So I bought a pair of 5.8ghz Uniden wireless expandable phones. The base unit is mounted to the wall next to my gear and the extension is in another room. It works for me.

Your old corded phones will work just fine. Lol

I was led to believe that because I live in an apartment building that I couldn't use corded phones. The cordless that I have near my computer is a Uniden 5.8 and when I phone Vonage I get to speak to people who really don't answer my questions. Therefore, my confusion.

Beware, however, that you may not be able to use the _wiring_ in the apartment if you can't disconnect it from the phone company. That may be what the person who indicated that you can't use a wired phone in the apartment had in mind.

Another issue is the number of phones that you can hook to the adapter without overloading the ringer capacity of the adapter. I have the RTP300. With two phones and a fax machine all connected, things work all right. If I add another phone, none of the phones ring correctly. Adding one more after that causes none of the phones to ring at all.

There is no way for me to disconnect the wiring from the phone company - so perhaps the only solution is to get the expandable phones

Next time you see the phone repair guy, slip him $20 and have him(her) isolate your line.....

You should still be able to isolate your phone line, it will just take a little more work.

The main phone line should come into one of your phone jacks, then out to your other jacks. If you just find the first one in the chain and disconnect the outside line from that jack, you should be ok. Finding the first jack is the trick. From there all other lines in your apartment should be isolated from the outside line.

If you need further help, let me know.
