Set Ooma's voicemail to pick up much later than the ring count for your answering machine. For example: if the answering machine picks up after 4 rings, set Ooma's voicemail to pick up after 8 rings.

That way the answering machine will get the first priority on unanswered calls and Ooma's voicemail will serve as a backup to catch the calls when either the answering machine or your home network is down. :cool:

I interpreted your question different. You indicate that you have the Ooma number forwarded to a landline? A forwarded call I believe requires the answering party to press 1 toaccept the call, your answering machine obviously can not do this so the forwarded call will have to go to ooma voice mail.
