Upgrade to OOMA Tele

Post by wablackwell » Tue May 25, 2010 12:48 pm

Currently I have the old OOMA Hub And Scout and I am thinking about upgrading to the OOMA Tele. My question about the OOMA Tele is if I plug the OOMA Tele system into a phone Jack in myb house will it energize the rest of my phone jacks in my house. I currently can do this with my OOMA hub as long as I have an OOMA Scout at each phone jack that I want to energize. Thanks

It's a Telo, not a Tele. :)

Yes, you can distribute dial tone to all your phone jacks: https://www.ooma.com/support/knowledgeb ... hone-jacks

It works the same as a Hub if you are connecting the phone port on the Hub to a wall jack. However, it sounds like you're connecting the wall port on the hub to a wall jack and then using Scouts at other wall jacks. This gives you access to voicemail, call screening and the instant second line at other locations. With the Telo, you can only access that functionality using a Telo handset.
