How many digital phones are supported in basic edition

How many digital phones are supported in basic edition?

RE: How many digital phones are supported in basic edition

4 x DS8 = 32

RE: How many digital phones are supported in basic edition

You can only have 3 DS8's in the control unit so 3xDS8 + 1xCombo(6DS) = 30. That would be the limit in 2 digit numbering mode.

However, switch it to 3-digit numbering and you can add external DS modules. My maths got me to 100 (by adding 2 DS30 and 1 DS16) but that does mean you have 6 non-functional ports on one of the modules.

Asking that question means it should be essential edition though smile

OK so this company has basic plus 2 combos and a DS8. They want to add another DS8. That will give them 28 extensions. Will there be any issues. I of course could not sell them on the Essential upgrade.

RE: How many digital phones are supported in basic edition

He is 100% right though. You asked a question with 0 additional information, got answers, and then provided the information needed to give you a correct answer. You were not actually inquiring about the max number of extensions possible on muppet mode and you waste people's time before providing the information needed to get the answer you want.... and to boot you asked this question in the wrong forum.

There is so much wrong with this thread it is not even funny... except Sizbut's response that I laughed and starred.

The truth is just an excuse for lack of imagination.

RE: How many digital phones are supported in basic edition

If only there was a forum specifically for basic/partner mode... oh wait there is! Try posting in the CORRECT forum and giving the CORRECT information and maybe you will get the correct answer and not waste people's time.

Sorry... about the UPPERCASE that is. That was an unspoken side rant about the sudden outcrop of ALL UPPERCASE SUBJECT TITLES this week, because shouting your question always gets you read first not.

If you'd posted your question straight out first time you would have had an answer within the first two or three posts and we would all have been happy (or at least our usual steady state of grumbling discontent with life the universe and everything). It's simple logic - so help yourself and everyone in future by asking the question you actually want answered.

Meanwhile, if the stats are right, you've only ever given one star in the last six years. So I suspect that even for the most stellar answer you were never going to give one. [Steady state grumble resumed...]
