I don't understand why it took the phn companys signal to give me the Ooma tone? Took away verizon signal and Ooma's gone also :(

By any chance did you have ooma integrated with the landline? If so all you need to do is call 888-711-6662 and tell them to make the ooma standalone. The problem is that your hub is looking for the landline because in the "integrated" mode it uses the landline for incoming and local/911 outgoing. Simple fix that should only take a minute. Don't rely on email, do it by phone.

Edit: Nothing connected to either the phone or wall ports for this test
Edit2: Hold down the ooma tab for a few seconds to reset it.


Nothing changed, After reboot all the lights as the last time came on.

Look at Southsound's post above, if you had your POTS service provisioned to your ooma hub when you first activated, you will need tech support to change it back to ooma stand alone service to accomplish what you want with your home wiring and port your number over.

Don't exactly remember what I did, but I "think" I said, leave my number "as is". Will be porting...

I'll give tech support a call anyway. Hey listen, very cool of you to go this far to give me a hand. I appreciate it :)

See page 40 of the ooma User Guide:

> >>| are solid red
When using the ooma system with a landline, the ooma Hub is unable to detect if a phone line is plugged in. Confirm that the ooma Hub WALL port is connected to a working phone jack.
