Dealing with Office Telephones Jabra A7010 Bluetooth Hub and JX10 Hub Oticon EPOQ Streamer You can keep your Streamer paired to both the office phone and the cell phone at the same time. You just cannot turn off the Streamer. As long as it is kept on, it will automatically switch back and forth between the two as they come into range. You do have to turn off the BT on the cell so that the hub knows to find the office phone, but you dont have to re-pair. Photo courtesy of BeyondHearingAids.com
