Excel - Static cell mapping from another tab issue

I was trying to make life easier on the helpdesk team with a new phone template and had an idea that so far I've been unable to make work.

If you take a look at the attached phone template I think you'll be able to see what I want to do. I essentially want to make the Phone Extensions tab automatically update based on the data on the MasterList tab. The problem seems to be if I used formulas like =MasterList!A2 or =MasterList!$A$2 it creates a link between the data so if I insert a new row in the middle of the MasterList tab the formulas on the Phone Extensions tab change so the the link is maintained. For example, if I insert a row between between row 2 & 3 on on the MasterList the formulas that reference rows 3-5 all increment row reference so the cells stays linked.

The whole reason for wanting to do something like this is that the actual spreadsheet has more than one page and two columns of phone extension data. That means trying to move data between all of the columns, not messing up the formatting, etc. is quite a pain, so if it's possible to make is so that I could add or delete rows from the MasterList and have the phone extensions spreadsheet update (via macro or some kind of lookup formula on the cells that would be ideal. If anything is unclear please let me know.

Try attached, where you can add, delete or sort the master list.
The formulas are adapted to the actual layout with 2 pages.
