Scout shared with another dedicated scout

Post by jmassimilla » Sat Feb 28, 2009 6:43 pm

Can a scout be shared with another scout that has been assigned for personal use so that I can have 2 phones hooked to my second number in different locations?

I asked ooma support this once, or something similar. I was told no, a dedicated number gets dedicated to a single scout. Of course that may have changed as the service is constantly improving.

We currently do not support having multiple Scouts share the same number. One workaround that you can try - unassign the Scouts so that they become "shared devices" (since you can have multiple devices in the shared pool) and assign a number to the Hub instead.
