The VTech CS6229 is an ENERGY STAR cordless handset base unit featuring a digital answering machine and Caller ID. It is expandable by up to 12 CS6209 accessory handsets. It functions as the base and in fact requires only one phone-jack connection. It’s based off of DECT 6.0 technology, which delivers a superior frequency (versus 2.4/5.4GHz) for enhanced sound, range, and security. Plus, the set boasts a bevy of convenience features: conference with an outside call between handsets; intercom between handsets; and even the ability to transfer calls between handsets. Additional features of the VTech CS6229 include digital security, Wi-Fi compliance (no interference), and a pager/handset-locator.

I am trying to use two separate phones with two separate phone numbers in the same household. I already had a a two extension phone (CS6229-2) with a particular phone number. I got another land line phone number and want to use ANOTHER set of vtech (VTech CS6229-4). Will this work or would they interfere with each other?

This is useless to me. The old model can take a handset and this one HAS NO HANDSET JACK. Am returning it and getting something else and am annoyed that they removed a feature of the older model that I liked.
