Could someone walk me through the inner details of Shared Lines?

We have a 3 phone system (paying for 3 lines). We want to use these in a Shared Line setup (i.e. keep each line open on all phones as calls come in).

My question - if more than 3 people call in, what happens? Busy signal? Voicemail?

Here is a brief summary of the differences between using the Call Queues and Shared Lines

You may want to look at setting up a Call Queue instead of shared lines since you are already paying for the 3 lines, if you choose to expand past 3 lines, this would make it easier to not have to start over from scratch with setup for how this is accomplished. Not sure what level of account you are paying for - if queues are included or not.
