Private voicemail for second number with shared devices?

Post by jrandeck » Mon Dec 13, 2010 8:51 am

Prior to switching to Ooma I had two physical phone lines and used phones that could access both lines so that any phone could be used for either line, but the two lines had separate voice mail.

Is it possible to configure Ooma such that both of my numbers get different voice mail boxes without dedicating a device to one number (which as I read it will make it not ring on the other phones, only the dedicated handset)?

Hello,

In order to have separate voicemail boxes, the 2nd number would need to be assigned to a device.

So my choices are:

1. Leave all devices shared and deal with mixed voice mail messages in one inbox

2. Dedicate a handset to the second number so that calls to that number can only be answered on that handset and that handset can't be used to answer calls on the other number.

Do I understand that correctly?

In addition, you can log into your 2nd number in My Ooma to listen or call remotely & enter a pin to access.
