I followed the instructions. I listened to my "welcome to Ooma" voice mail.

But I can't call anyone. When I pick up my phone, I hear a couple of musical tones, then a soft dial tone kind of sound. I dial a number. Then I hear what may be a dial tone, maybe a busy signal -- every time. When I use my land line, no problem.

I see from some posts here that it's ok if all the blue lights are lit. So what is wrong? I've checked all my connections, restarted the router . . . Please help. Thanks.

Have you tried removing power from your modem, Ooma device and router. Then repower the modem, when the modem is done repowering (booting), repower the Ooma device or what ever device is next in line. When that device is done booting, repower the last device in line. Then test.

Yes, I did that. No change.

Are all the blue lights really supposed to be on? The quick start guide made it sound like only the Ooma icon should be lit.

Also, is it strange to anyone else that I could get my welcome voice mail message even though I can't call anyone?

Thanks again . . .

Your Ooma profile might not be setup correctly.

You could contact Ooma Customer Support, maybe they can see something from their end.

In the meantime, one other thing you can try is to power off ooma for at least 20 minutes so that when you power backup, connectivity build up can start from scratch.

Tried repowering . . . no difference.

But I can receive calls, I've discovered . . . so I am connected . . . just can't call out.

I emailed customer support.

From the logs it appears like no dialed digits are being detected by the Telo. Do you have the phone connected directly to the Telo PHONE port (and not through your home wiring)?

As a test, try having someone place an inbound call to your Telo and pick up the phone. Try pressing digits on your phone and ask the person you're talking to if they hear the DTMF tones on their end.

What happens if you try a different phone or a different phone cable - do you experience the same results?
