Is it possible to call through my Google Voice number?
Say Ooma's number is: 111-1111, and my Google Voice number is 222-2222.
Google Voice is set up so that if someone calls 222-2222, it forwards to my cell phone, as well as my Ooma's number (111-1111). My cell phone is set up (using Google Voice app) to call anyone while showing the 222-2222 number (for example, if I call my friends with my cell phone, they will see 222-2222 instead of my real cell phone number).
Is it possible to do this with Ooma/home phones? I want to be able to hide my number (111-1111), and let the caller ID show 222-2222 to whomever I call.
There is a workaround. Since your ooma number is set up in your GV account, from your ooma phone, call your GV number. It will answer with an announcement regarding new messages and have you press 2 if you want to make a call. Press the 2, then dial the 10 digit number followed by the # button. That will ring the persons phone and display your GV number. The CNAM will be unavailable, but your ooma number will be hidden. You could set up a speed dial to call the GV number but the rest will be manual. Hope this helps.
