Not Directly

You can't do this directly. The common practice for this is to create two extensions. Their numbers would be outside the regular extension sequence.

You'd create a ring group numbered inside the regular extension sequence.

You place both the new phones inside the the new ring group and use the ring group extension as the published number.

Being on one phone would not busy the second line.

I believe you can also use

I believe you can also use device & user mode. Then you can have multiple devices with the same user (extension).
