I've recently purchase a Telo and 2 Telo handsets. My port is now complete and my ported number is my "main number" and my assigned Ooma number is my second line. I've been trying to configure the lines to ring devices a certain way but I can't seem to find the right way to accomplish it, if it is even possible. Here is what I want...
1) MAIN number - Rings both Telo handsets (plus any future ones) and is used by both for outgoing calls. Same applies to home wired network devices.
2) SECOND number - Rings only Telo handset #1. Second number only displayed on *called* line either never or when I would somehow manually tell it to do so.
Can some or all of this be configured?
Thanks! - KEM
Currently, your account shows both numbers as being shared. The main number has default ring pattern & the 2nd number has Ring5 set. Did you want to assign the 2nd number to the telo handset?
If so, in My Ooma>Preferences> Phone Numbers>click on the 2nd number, a pop up will come up, and you can change by going to "Associate to Device" & click Save.
Hello lbmofo,lbmofo wrote:ntoy, do you recall if KEM is able to login to the 2nd number's my.ooma.com and set default outgoing callerid to the main number?
I don't have a way to tell if he can log in using the 2nd number -it should work, though. Once the private number is assigned to a handset, the 2nd vmail acct will be built.
Anyway, I will do some more experimenting as soon as I can and report back. It may be a few days as I'm traveling now. If you come up with anything in your experiments please let me know.

Go ahead and assign your 2nd number to 1 handset.
Sign up to a Google Voice number and then have that Google voice number forward calls to your 2nd number.
Have your main number multi-ring your Google Voice number.
After you do this, when main number is called, your 2nd number rings as well. But when 2nd number called, only 1 handset rings.

KEM, once a number is assigned to the Telo handset, the main account gives the main/shared number as the only choice for outgoing callerid and the 2nd number my.ooma.com also gives the 2nd number as the only choice.lbmofo wrote:Thanks. I'll do some testing to see if 2nd my.ooma.com will allow choosing default outgoing callerid to be main #.
Unless KEM gets to it first.
So, no can do. The personal device can't have the main number as the default outgoing callerid. If you don't want people to see your 2nd number, you can always block the outgoing callerid on the personal device.
Or everytime you dial out on the personal device, pre dial **0 to reflect main number as your callerid instead of the default 2nd number.
