Default VoIP - POTS Patch

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.

I am suscribed to a VOIP provider which allows me to make free calls to

48 states. I have however kept my POTS system intact. I would like

to find a way through which I can patch an established incoming call in

POTS line to an established call on the VOIP line (or vice-versa). Is

possible? What additional equipment do I need? Where can I get such
equipment? Any help and guidance would be greatly appreciated.

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
