But I found the calls comming to the OOMA from my landline were not finding their way to my cell phone. Only the calls made directly to the OOMA also rang on the cell. So if you really need the landline calls to come to your cell, I think you'll have to forward then directly to the cell.

Now that my old landline # has been ported, the multi-ring works as expected.

Hope this helps.

The main reason we have the above restriction in place is to protect against call forwarding loops. There's a bit of development work and testing that needs to be added to ooma's Multi-Ring feature to protect against these types of call loops.

That being said, we should support Multi-Ring when a forwarded call from a 3rd party is received in the future. We've seen a few requests for this functionality when people are in the process of porting their number and they want to call forward from their landline or VoIP service to their ooma temporary number AND they want to use the Multi-Ring feature.
