Second Number on Scout

Post by epete » Sat Oct 24, 2009 5:38 am

I set uop a second number and it ended up tied to the Hub with the first number. Is theer any way to associate that second number with the scout so it only rings on line two? I would also like the voicemail to be sepperate. Not sure if that is possible. Any ideas?

Convert the scout to a private device.
Assign the second number to the scout.
Wait 10 minutes and/or power cycle the hub and the scout.
Take the phone connected to the scout off hook and press the play button the scout.
Set up the voice mail for the second number.
Log into My Ooma using the second phone number and configure it the way that you want it to work.

murphy, thanks. I have had this system for a while now and never figured this out. I am going to give it a try. Will this allow sepperate multi-ring options for each number? Currently since both numbers are tied to teh hub, both numbers multiring the same number. I would like the Hub to multiring on my wifes cell and the scout to multiring on my cell.

Yes, you will be able to control all features, including mutiring, separately.
