No dsl that's a good thing.
Also, if you do not have a landline anymore and you know where your telco box is, usually on the outside of the house, open it up and disconnect the house wiring from the main telco connection. Usually this just requires unplugging a phone jack. Voltage from the old telco line some times interferes with the phone signals on ooma.

Yah I messed with it for awhile and no go on the ringing. Then I decide, well I'll go outside and unhook the wires from the telco box since I planned on doing that and BINGO then all the phones started ringing. I wonder why just by unhooking those wires it made the phones start ringing. Really wierd.

Not weird at all. I had to unhook my telco or my Scout wouldn't work. Even after a disconnect there is voltage and even noise present on the lines. (it's never really disconnected totally)

Removing the voltage on the line allowed ooma to ring all phones.
