    I am suscribed to a VOIP provider which allows me to make free calls to the
    48 states. I have however kept my POTS system intact. I would like however,
    to find a way through which I can patch an established incoming call in the
    POTS line to an established call on the VOIP line (or vice-versa). Is this
    possible? What additional equipment do I need? Where can I get such
    equipment? Any help and guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    If one of the two calls weren't established and your voip/pstn gateway
    provider allowed you to use your own equipment then you could use
    something like the Sipura SPA-3000 to answer the PSTN call, and allow
    the caller to dial another number via your VOIP-to-PSTN service.

    If you really want to bridge two established phone calls then the only
    way I can think of is to set up a conference bridge and transfer both
    calls to that. The open-source program "asterisk" does that, but it
    seems like an awful lot of tinkering just to allow established calls
    to be bridged. It would be simpler if you could get one of the party
    on the voip leg to hang up and wait for a call back.

    Sounds like you want to be able to make free calls from any phone by
    patching through your POTS:VoiP connection.

    The Sipura 3000 should fulfill the requirement. Here is a link to the
    product page:

    Do you mean allow a caller on one line to dial out on another, or do you
    mean conference two established calls together..? A device like the Sipura
    3000 will do the former, while pretty much any PBX system will do the
    latter. If you don't have or don't need/want a PBX then a 2-line phone
    such as the BT Converse 2025 will do the job. It's a UK product but I'm
    sure someone in the US produces something similar.

    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.
