So please provide detail on how your Hunt Group is setup...
If the person is calling the pilot #, and the individual is a member of the group, as long as there are other phones in the group, it should work.
Please provide a sample call flow scenario... thanks.

Define "groups set up"... do you have everyone in a pickup group?
Based on the info provided thus far, you should consider a Hunt Group.  If you can provide more detail like a call flow scenario, we can probably help you a little further.

ok. i have 4 phones set up with a group on button number 2. when someone calls in to the group and 1 of the 3 phones picks up it works fine but if that person is still on the phone and another person calls into that group they get a busy signal. none of the other 3 phones ring for that group. i hope this is what you need. thanks for you support.

Ok, so which setup sounded like it fit your business needs from the guide?  Can you provide some type of visual call flow to help me help you program this?
