Vitelity (or other provider) VoIP question

Last Modified: 2012-05-10

We're looking to implement a trixbox server and I wanted to get all the facts first.  We've done a great deal of research and seem to like the Vitelity service offering.  We've bought to DID's and I have the hardware and downloaded trixbox.  We haven't installed anything yet, so any advice is helpful!

The question that we have is if we've bought a phone number, and we're running trix box, does that mean we can only have one conversation at a time for each phone number we've bought (DID)?

If that's true, and we've bought two phone numbers (DIDs), does that mean we can have two concurrent phone calls?

Also, what happens if someone calls the number and we're on the phone at that time?  Is there a way that one line can forward on busy?  (Research on this topic has lead us to both a "yes" and a "no" answer, so I'm interested if anyone has this working).

Lastly, what if we only wanted one phone number, but 3-4 concurrent calls, is that possible?  If not, I am interested in the config files anyone has for a setup such as this one.

Thanks again to anyone who can help!
