I just received my Ooma Hub/Scout and began the porting process for my primary number. And now the questions begin...
I would like to be able to call out and receive on line 1 for my primary number ***7790 and send and receive faxes on line 2 ***7780.

Or is it possible to somehow dedicate one line to the scout, and the fax line to the hub?

Do I need premiere for both of these methods (if either is possible)

If the first is possible and line one is primary, and line two is fax. Is it possible to keep the fax from picking up for line 1 and only pick up for line two? (thinking something to do with voicemail/fax answer timing.)

Thanks for any answers going thru the forums Im learning alot and I am kinda excited to use the new system!

The lines are used interchangeably with our Ooma devices.

-In order to have 2 lines, you must have premiere services active.
-In using your physical fax machine, it MUST be connected to the Hub.

Based on your information, I would recommend this configuration:

1. Connect your physical fax machine to the Hub - this would be used for fax
2. Assign the 2nd number to the scout - (Done in My Ooma) - this would be your used as your regular phone line.

Thanks so much thats the main thing I could not figure out! I have premier and am now waiting on the lines to be ported (Estimated in 10 days) and I think Ill be very happy with that set up.
