How to transfer calls across two wired phones?
Need help solving a phone problem, please!
A small primary school has a single phone line. It has two buildings which are in a sort of 'L' shape with the playground in between.
One end of the building has the BT master socket and has a phone. We have wired in another phone socket around the 'L' shape so that the other end of the building can also get to a phone. We did this as we couldn't get any sort of good reception with a cordless phone. Excellent we thought both ends of the school are happy! Well they aint! :(
The problem is, now when one end of the school gets a call, they cannot transfer to the other end of the school, as the two phones are not cordless and cannot therefore transfer calls. Both sides are complaining about fielding calls for the other office and the inability to transfer the call on.
So I have been given a deadline of until the end of half-term to try and sort out, except I haven't got the foggiest as to how to do this. I've asked and someone has said you need to get a PBX(???) or sommat similar. I've looked on the internet and am even more confused.
So, how do I get each side to able to transfer calls to the other without breaking the bank?
Thanks in advance.
