In a million ways, look at:

- built-in pickup with *8 (only for ringing calls, not established calls)
- meetme (put every call into a conference, and then join 3rd party if 
- SLA as in Asterisk 1.4.4 (shared line appearance)
- related dialplan example: Asterisk voicemail live (search the wiki)
- manager API (aka "AMI"): redirect command

Then there are additional methods that don't come with Asterisk right 
away, search for:

- app_bridge (Asterisk bug tracker, and possibly also from backports)
- app_changrab (available from FreePBX)
- app_steal (bristuff, available from junghanns.net)

Cheers, Philipp
