I am new to ooma, installed today. I am using a landline. I can not get call forwarding/multi-ring to work. I would like for my cell to ring when a call comes in. Is this possible?
The base and scout are both blue, and most other features seem to work. I am on my 60 day trial.
I have ooma connection tone set to disable, but it doesn't work when enabled.
Is this related to 'provisioning'? If so, how do I start the process?
Telo with 2 Handsets, a Linx, and a Safety Phone

Is this why multi-ring doesn't work?
Is provisioning something that is suggested if I intend to keep my landline? I have a security system and the company warns against VoIP systems.
Rough idea on the cost?
Again, thanks for the response.
I think it's about $5 per month from most landline phone companies.
You must contact Ooma customer support and have your landline provisioned to add call forward busy to your landline. This is an additional monthly charge and allows you to accept a second call when the landline is in use. They also remove voicemail, call waiting and call forwarding. See here:

Most of us here recommend not integrating your landline, whether you're just testing the Ooma service and will eventually port your number or even if you want to keep your landline for a backup service. The reason is that all incoming calls and local outgoing and 911 calls will be through your landline service. Only long distance calls will be through the Ooma service. Also, you give up much of the included functionality like caller id and call waiting from Ooma.
