Philips SE6554B cordless phones

We are shopping for new home phones, and like the look of this one. The question I can't find an answer for is...does this phone allow more than one handset to be in use on a call at the same time? Our current phone doesn't, which is annoying in the extreme when we are talking to our families in other places!
Any information, and opinions of the phone generally, are welcome. Thank you!

Do you want to be able to have 2 or more people in your home to be able to talk to the other party or to be able to have 2 or more people be capable of talking to different parties at the same time?

I might be wrong, but I haven't seen a system that lets you use two handsets at once for a phone call; only when using them as an intercom with each other.

my AT&T 9100 (old) does let you talk to the caller with more than one handset.

It's nice when someone calls, and it's for another person in the house,
and you holler to that person to pick up the other phone....

I don't believe that any of those newer multi-phone DECT 6.0 packages allow multiple phones to be used at the same time. The remote units all talk to the base unit to get their connectivity.
