call waiting

Post by bukzin » Sun Sep 04, 2011 10:50 pm

I have Premier but can't seem to get call waiting to work.

I ported over 2 landlines.


What am I missing?
Ooma Telo
box part # 110-0102-310
Premier service

no Telo handset (yet)

Is the Ooma branded cordless handset the only phone
that will make call waiting work?

My question is about regular old fashioned call waiting, not 'enhanced'.

When I hit the flash button on my older Uniden 5.8 cordless phone
it disconnects (hangs up on) the 2nd call.


More likely the cordless phone or something with my Telo?
Also, my ATT DSL is slow and a bit flakey. Could that be a factor?

Thanks

I did a test.

I can only tell you how mine works.

I use a Panasonic DECT 6 Plus cordless phone set connected to my Ooma Telo. I called our Ooma number with a cell phone and established voice conversation between the two phones. Then I called the same Ooma number with another cell phone. I heard the call waiting beep in the Panasonic phone handset. I pressed flash and could communicate with the second cell phone, to the Ooma connected Panasonic phone.

I just purchased new phones. the Panasonic Dect 6.0 and now when I get a second call the phone hangs up my first line and goes dead. I have to press the call waiting button to get the second line. There is no beep or tone or anything telling me I have a second call. Call waiting worked perfect on my old line.
How can i fix it so the Panasonic Dect 6.0 phone works with call waiting?
Thank you!! :)
