So does anyone know if the Grandstream handytone-286 sends this "busy" answer 
I'm guessing it doesn't. In that case, what other ways are there of connecting 
my dect phones to a voip * system ? - can I just connect them into the 
x100p's phone socket (how do I send calls to that port) or do I need to get a 
fxs card and run wire's everywhere  - not an option :(
How does everyone else connect up DECT phones to a * based system.

Surely * should know if a phone is in use ? After all it initiated/took part 
in the call in the first place ;)
