I assume this would work, but there just seems like something wrong with running VoIP calls through another VoIP box -- like it might rip a hole in the fabric of time and space.
I have always worried about that same issue. I'm not aware of how thick the fabric is, but I'm sure duct tape would not fix it.randyth wrote:I assume this would work, but there just seems like something wrong with running VoIP calls through another VoIP box -- like it might rip a hole in the fabric of time and space.
I would recommend keeping the two systems separate. You could get her using the ooma right away by plugging her cordless phone base or other phone into the phone port on the ooma hub. Then forward her existing Comcast number to the temporary ooma number. Things will be very clean that way and she will get used to the ooma dialtone and features. I'm sure she will love the ooma experience - but if you can make it transparent in this way I think there is less chance of having a problem. Congratulations on doing the right thing for Mom! If she's anything like my Mom (now with the Lord in Glory), I'll bet she makes great sticky buns. If so, I could forward my mailing address!

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