Here is one for you. I contacted Bell Alantic and asked questions
about the same thing. Here is what I have set up. I had to have
another line put in my house, costs are about $8.00/month extra.
This is set up with "answer call" or something like that. Here is
how it works. this is basically an answering machine, however I
don't use it for that. When someone calls it rings once in my
house and then goes directly to the system. There is an opening
anouncement, general pack info, etc. Each group has their own
line. Tigers -> 1, wolves -> 2, bears -> 3, Webelos 1 -> 4,
Webelos 2 -> 5, and leaders -> 6. This takes away all of the
routine calls. It is used for reminders only, not as every
thing that is needed to be known. There are a total of 8
boxes that can be used. The only down side to this is that
you cannot go to a different box once you are in one. You must
hang up and call again. Remember, this is an answering maching
and I am using the greeting feature to give information. I do
not take messages on this, and I have told my Pack that no
messages will be listened to. I have had this since Sept. 94
and it has taken away all of the reminder calls that needed to be
made. You just have to get everyone used to calling the newsline.
If you would like to try it, here is the number - 908-477-8698.
