I got my Ooma Hub and went through the installation process. I was able to the welcome voice mail from Ooma and also did set up my voicemail account.

However, i cannot make outgoing calls or can't see the phone ringing for any incoming that i try from my mobile.

When I dial a call from the Ooma connected phone (landline), i hear the engage tone after entering 6 digits of the 10 numbers. I tried calling from my work numer and also my mobile and cannot receive any calls on the Ooma phone or even reach the voice mail. It has been nearly 10 hrs that the equipment was setup. I did a restart of the hub as well. Please advice..

even better update:

Outgoing works as well.. have to use the prefix 1 for non-local

and for local number ()-xxx-xxxx, dialing without the area code works...

glad its working...but the cust. service had a message that they are experiencing some outage..

You can disable the dial 1 first in your preferences. Look for "system". Why anyone would want to dial 1 first is beyond me.

If you like, you can also turn on 10-digit dialing in the Preferences / System area. When enabled, the system only requires the area code and number - you can also dial just 7 digits for local calls. After about 10 seconds, the system realizes you are only dialing 7 digits and connects the call. If you want to shorten the wait, just press # after the 7 digits.

May I be one of the first to welcome you to ooma and to the forum? We're glad you're here! :cool:
