Hi there- I got my Ooma today and hooked it up- after an hour and a half, I still have a flashing red flower and 4 blue lights (1 / 2 / trash / mail)... I am still waiting on the phone for support to answer the phone... what do I need to do?

Thanks in advance!

Hi there and thanks for the fast reply...

I have the Ooma Telco and have it attached to a AT&T 2Wire modem / router... also hooked up to the AT&T is my computer and a xbox360... my phone attached is a Panasonic KX-TG6541 and I have the wall connected as well... on the back of the Ooma I have the cat5 cable connected through the router at the Home Network connection...

While I was waiting, I moved the Home Network cable over to the Internet one and after about 15 minutes I got a blue light...

Now I am not receiving calls on my regular line that is currently connected... only on my new number... and the flashing blue lights keep coming up and disconnecting the calls we are trying...

Do I just need to leave it alone for a while?

... and how do I get it to ring through my regular number until I port it?

If ooma assigned a new/temp number, you shouldn't have anything connected to the wall port of the ooma. Plug your home phone to the phone port and you should have service via the new/temp number. Your regular line should not be impacted by your ooma setup.

You got phones connected to your regular line?

do I need to run a split at the back of my cordless to have both the Ooma and the line from the wall connected?

If you got a new number or a temp number from ooma, you don't want to connect the wall port to your wall jack.

Phone connected to your ooma device will ring if someone calls your new/temp number and phone connected to your wall jack will ring if someone calls your regular number.

If you want to just use the phone connected to ooma, you can forward your regular number to your new/temp number.

Given you have this feature with your regular line, call fowarding usually works like this: *72 + your temp number including the area code.
