Hi,

I didn't catch you, Mr. Mecawber?

Is it under repair or it might mean the outside calls will be answered by one main line and from there, the receiver can put him on the wanted internal line.

I guess that called "PBX system" ... though!

No, no, it is just a simple telephone, but it hasn't been connected to the world telephone system yet.

Hi,

You mean a telephone device has been installed say 'at home' but still not in service.

Yes, but the normal process is that the phone company brings the device and installs it and puts it into service all at one time.
