I wish for...

Post by Bob K » Tue Dec 04, 2012 7:06 pm

I wish for a user configurable dial tone.

A little deeper. A little more reverb.
Maybe a 1/4 Hz. harmonic to make it
a bit richer sounding. Oh, and volume control.

Maybe for Christmas? :)

In my Christmas stocking, I would like the option of no music, just the dial tone.

Easy solution. I have mine routed through a TC Helicon VoiceLive 2 Extreme Edition. Allows me to add some awesome effects including automatic harmony, reverb, chorusing, etc. Only problem is with my bride. She doesn't like how I can sit for hours listening to the "sweetened" dial tone.

A good friend of my on the forum has the solution here as well. He's a little older that I am (if that is possible) and moves more slowly than many. When he picks up the handset, it takes long enough that by the time it reaches his ear, it is the normal A-440 that has been the telco standard since dial phones were made popular.

Actually, just a little bit of levity and certainly no disrespect for the suggestions.
I just consider the musical dial tone to be a reminder of how much money I am saving with ooma. :P

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.

Undoubtedly, much better sounding than the Verizon Bong and AT&T Bong because these weren't free.
