    Saw an Emerson box advertised on tv the other night that will take one phone line & turn it into two phone lines so you don't tie up your phone or have to buy 2 lines. It sells for around $40 & I was wondering if it is any good? The Emerson can be found at www.greatbuyusa.com it's right at the top of the page. A neighbor thought it might be good for his kids line? Any ideas? Thanks.

    Your ISP has to be compatible with this product. You also have to have the "call waiting" feature from your phone company. It basicly puts your ISP "on hold", and let's you talk on the phone. Most ISP's limit the time they are "on hold". Usually less than 2 minutes. A lot of new modems have this feature. Some cost less than $40. Hope this helps.
