Is there a setting or change to be made to allow these incoming distinctive ring numbers to work - and pass through the distinctive rings? (else there is no point in having them)
<Note: My first day with Telo and handset have been VERY disappointing...>
Why not do this - call support and have them issue you a new ooma number. Then, after trying it for a bit, you can add two additional numbers with distictive ring patterns. The first extra number will be free for the period of your Premier trial. The second additional number with cost $5 a month and may not be available until your Premier actually becomes a paid subscription - but you will at least be able to try ooma with the two numbers before you have to pay for Premier.
- If you have the Telo handsets (or even just one) you can be on the phone and when another call comes in, it will beep like normal call waiting - but your Telo handset (or your phone plugged into the Telo if you are not on it) will ring with the appropriate pattern. This effectively gives you a rollover (if the call is to the same number you are talking on) or a true second line - much better than a simple one-line with distinctive ring setup.
- You will be able to make or take two simultaneous calls (as described above).
- You will be able to use ALL of the features of Premier on all numbers with only a single Premier subscription (and the cost of the third number).
- You will have to change the numbers people call you on. If your main number is the important one, you could still port this for free with a paid annual Premier subscription. If that number is not the important one, I imagine that your telco could switch them around to make the important one your main number - then you could port it.
