Does the cascading happen only on single line ("Industry Standard") phones or also on the proprietary multi-line Panasonic phones?

I don't know if I am reading you right, but my prop phone (7130) is on 21, another phone is on 27, and a Dictograph on 36, the only three numbers I programmed to ring on incoming calls, and they all cascade.

David W. mentioned dialing ? for a specific outside line, instead of dialing 9 to get the first available outside line.  On my 616, and I assume the same on the 308, you dial 81 to get outside line 1, 82 for outside line 2 and so forth.

21 would ring first (21, 25, 29, and 33 ring together)
                              (22, 26, 30 and 34 ring together next)
27 next                  (23, 27, 31 and 35 ring together)
36 last                   (24, 28, 32, 36 ring together)

Other than ebay, what are some good sources (re:cheap) for the 616?
