I was wondering if there was someone out there who knew about office phones? My wifes doctors office has an old “Starplus” system that has a 2 bad ports on it which need to be repaired. Rather than fix the existing system which is limited to only 6 lines and 15 extensions/stations they want me to install a new system that would enable them to have call forwarding,auto attendant and personal voice message boxes. They want to be a little conservative in the purchase price (as they don’t want to break the bank on a phone system when their office still runs on a Dos based computer which will also need to be upgraded) I wondered if you guys knew of any system that is under 2000.00 that I could install myself. I do have moderate experience with smaller phone systems but wonder if I can install a larger one (6-10 lines 10-25 stations) myself? The old system has 14-16 pair wiring running throughout the whole building which I don’t believe the new system will need. Thank you for any input!!!
While I’m on the subject of updating, my wife was wondeirng if there is a device that allows 2 line modem use. My wife dials in from home to do medical billing and to update financial records saving her time and cutting her extra weekend work in half but ties up the modem when calling in from my computer. but while shes on the system from home needs to transmit information to a third party via a dial up connection, but being that she has the line tied up she is unable to do so. Thanks guys!!!
