I am currently using phone jacks and extensions in other rooms. You can use it on up to 1,000 feet of installed home phone wiring. However, if you have DSL internet service, you still want to use the filters for each phone. You plug a phone cord from the Basic Talk device into one of your home phone jacks, and the signal should route through all of your home phone lines into the other jacks.
Important Note: If you have a dedicated DSL internet line coming from the phone company box on the outside of your home and into your house, when you hook your basic talk device into a phone jack in your home, remove all of the filters for the phones, and be sure to DISCONNENT the regular phone line going into your home if it's connected to the outside phone company box. This is simple to do. Open the box and look to see if the modular plug is plugged in. If it is, then disconnect it. This is usually located to the left of where your phone line is connected. Each dedicated phone line has its own modular jack and plug. I used to have two phone lines in my home, but no more. I made use of the secondary line for my DSL connection. My Basic Talk is routed through my home phone wiring, but remember, that line is connected at the phone company box on the outside of my home. This way, there is absolutely NO interference to the DSL service, and I do NOT have to use the DSL filters for each phone. Works great and the phone service is CRYSTAL CLEAR. Also, by disconnecting your regular phone line at the phone company box on the outside of your home, it prevents the Basic Talk phone line from picking up any interference in the phone line going to the phone company's switching station, as well as keeping your Basic Talk phone signal on a line that is 1,000 feet or less. Hope this helps and can be understood.
While you can only use one phone line with your BasicTalk account, you can use multiple phones with the service, although not more than 5. For more information please see the Support section on our website, https://support.basictalk.com/app/center/technical/
Yes, I bought this for my son. He has 2 other phones in the back rooms. Works great
Yes, you just plug this device into your household wiring (f you want to do it that way), then every phone in your house will become active.
