I bought this phone about 5 years ago:

and wonder if it can be used with my Ooma Telo?
I plugged the USB end of the GE into the Telo, but no joy.
Thanks for any help.
Where it says to connect to landline, connect to Ooma's "phone" port.
The USB needs to be connected to your computer to use Skype.
I got it working with those suggestions, but it's not a final solution for my needs.
My plan is to get used to using the Ooma Telo system before dumping my Bell Canada landline. I want to see how reliable it is, audio quality, etc. before porting my phone number over to the Ooma system, likely in a couple of months. Being 70-years old, I'm going to take my time at this.
Is there a way to incorporate my Panasonic cordless phone system (a base station, plus 3 wireless remote phones throughout the house) into the Ooma system, and still have access to the landline phone number for now?
Thanks again for your knowledge!
You can only do it if your cordless phone system is a 2 line system.inhaliburton wrote:Is there a way to incorporate my Panasonic cordless phone system (a base station, plus 3 wireless remote phones throughout the house) into the Ooma system, and still have access to the landline phone number for now?
If just a single line phone system, forward your landline phone (if your landline account has the feature) to your Ooma number so you'd receive all the calls on Ooma. Dialing out would show your Ooma number as outgoing callerid though. To connect the Panasonic as well as the GE phone to the Ooma, you can get one of these duplex splitters.
I don't know if it's a 2-line system. Originally when we moved in here, we were given 3 numbers. We eventually told ma Bell to cancel the extra 2 because they had been previously used by a resort. Hence, we had many late night calls...
If it's a 2-liner, you mentioned that the Panasonic wireless system could be used with the Telo.
Thank you again.
You would plug in 1 port to your landline and another port to your Ooma's "phone" port.
Mine is a KX-TG6431CT, a single line.
Do you think plugging a duplex splitter into the Panasonic with one cord going to the Ooma Telo and the other into the landline wall socket might possibly work?
