BellSouth DSL

Post by t4feb » Thu Aug 27, 2009 2:31 am

I was ask a question concerning Bell South DSL and ooma. The people have DSL without phone. They live in there camper because of there job status and go home every other week. They were asking me if they could hook up the ooma system in there camper just having the DSL modem. I thought maybe they could but was not 100% sure and I told them I would post it on the forum for the right answer. Any help on this matter? Thanks in advance

Yes. DSL/No-Phone is reffered to as Dry-Looped DSL, and it is a common use for other ooma users such as myself (Why pay for a landline when you got a fully functional phone for free?)

That will only work if the hub is provisioned to work without a landline.
If they have a phone connected while at home, then no phone in the camper it will not work

Make sure they unplug the phone line before they drive off anywhere! :-)

They live in the camper while here on there work site and only had DSL Internet line run to the camper. So they can not integrate with a land line because they don't have one in the camper they use there cell phones in which case runs them more money then they care to spend I guess. Anyway thanks for the info as I will let them know.

right,

what I am saying is that if the ooma at home is set up to work with a landline, then it will not work in the camper if there is no landline.

as long as they don't use a landline phone at home with the ooma, then they can use the hub in either location with no problem
