You can get a "combine-a-line" to join the pstn and voip to a single point
for ease of use. No power supply and the hum, and all lines surge protected
to save your equipment. Low cost, new and very reliable.

And if you are on one line and someone calls the other line while you have a
combine-a-line connected, the second caller gets dumped and you don't even
know they called. The device doesn't conference the lines, it just switches
from one to the other. Then, the last incoming call determines the default
line, which is a problem if it is connected to your phone system in a remote
area.
