1. Calling to Canada (where my daughter will be attending university later this year) and,
2. Migrating my wife's business line over to Premier's free second line.
My question is: how is that second line accessed? Do I physically connect her business phone to the Ooma Telo in some manner? (BTW - her business line is currently connected to a wall jack with service by Verizon)
Unfortunately, the Ooma Quick Start Guide that I have makes no mention of the connection method, so I'm hoping someone here can point me in the right direction.
If you leave both numbers in the shared pool you can assign them unique ring tones.
Both numbers would ring on all phones.
With a Telo handset the handset can be configured as a personal device and then the second number can be assigned to the Telo handset. The second number would only ring on the Telo handset. The first number would not ring on the Telo handset.
The second number would have its own voice mail. Only one handset can be assigned to the second number so if its battery died the number would be out of service until the battery was recharged.
Telo with 2 Handsets, a Linx, and a Safety Phone
Telo2 with 2 Handsets and a Linx
Instead of making a Telo handset a personal device (1 number would be restricted to that 1 handset only), make the Telo itself a personal device.
This way, the "phone" port of the Telo would be restricted to 1 number (you can plug in a multi-handset DECT 6.0 phone system into the "phone" port).
For the other number, you can have up to 4 Telo handsets share that number.
I like this option because you have multiple handsets per number.
