Old phonebook

Post by kenepp1 » Thu May 19, 2011 11:15 am

Do I need to write down all my names and phone numbers in my current AT&T Contact List before porting completes or will OOMA Telo retain that? I have a base station with voice message recorder. I'd rather not have to reenter all those names/phone numbers if possible.

Currently, my phone is plugged into the OOMA Telo and I have that info, but it may be coming through my AT&T DSL line. I have not cancelled the AT&T landline, but it is not connected to my phone.

I think your contact list is entered into your phone; not in a remote place. Should work even if you bring your phone and plug into your neighbors' house.

I yanked the cat5 cable from the incoming ethernet port on my Telo, and the handset still has Address Book entries.

I think kenepp1 added contacts to his cordless phone base.
