Can I purchase this online? or does it have to be in store?
You can purchase it online or in the store. It's even better with a coupon - got mine on eBay. Instantly delivered. Our old cordless phone is slowly dying - I've been shopping around for one. Was going to purchase on Amazon a lower end version of this phone. Best price I've seen on a panasonic cordless phone with 5 handsets and blue tooth. Awesome deal, especially if you like having extra phones around the house (or store them as a back up when one handset breaks down)
A quick question for whoever owns this phone... can you switch a call from one handset to the other without going through conferencing process? TIA
This might help. I was curious too. From the owner's manual, it looks like others can join the conversation (or get another handset) by just by hitting talk (answer button) on another receiver. Both phones can hear the conversation then. You can also block call sharing between receivers.
"To join the conversation, press (answer button).Note: A maximum of 3 parties (including 1 outside party) can join a conversation using 2 extensions. (3-way conference)
To prevent other users from joining your conversations with outside callers, turn call sharing mode off (page 38)."
Some of the features on the 77 series that the OP linked to are not present compared to my 76 review, but they're similar enough that the review might come in handy to someone. Refer to santy83's link for differences between the new 77 and the old 76.
