The Take 2 works on up to two telephone lines at a time. The phone
cords from the wall jack plug into the Take 2. Our message on hold
unit, which plays your personalized recording, plugs into the Take
2. Your telephone also plugs into the take 2. A diagram is below.
Installation instructions are also included with the unit.
The Take 2 works only on one telephone – the reason it is well
suited for a very small office, but not an office with numerous
phones on desks. If you answer the phone that Take 2 is connected
to, then wish to place the caller on hold so they hear the recorded
message – you push the button on the Take 2 – not the “hold” button
on your phone. If the caller is on phone line 1, you press the “1”
button on the Take 2 to put them on hold. If the caller is on phone
line 2, you press the “2” button on the Take 2 to put them on hold.
They hear your on hold recording while they wait. To take the caller
off hold so you can speak to them again, press the button on the
Note that if you have two or more phones on desks in your office –
you can’t place a caller on hold using the Take 2 at one phone, then
pick up the line at another phone. The caller must be taken off hold
by pressing the button on the Take 2 – not a button on your phone
