pickup voicemail from cell

Post by tkc9789 » Sun Apr 17, 2011 8:49 am

What's the correct configuration so I can listen to v-mail from my cell? The notification said to dial my Ooma number, then *.
When I called my Ooma number, home phone starts ringing. Not sure when the "*" key should be entered. Thanks.

When ooma lady vm greeting starts, you can press *.
You can set Ooma to reject anonymous calls (send to VM), use your cell phone to call home blocking callerid (*67 prefix) then you'll get into your VM immediately so you can press * right away.

Very few prisons allow voicemail (or other telephone services) in individual cells.

Is their a way if you have basic Ooma to get the voicemail directly from your cell rather than waiting for the phone to ring and go to vm?

Don't know of any. Also, don't know of any direct Ooma VM access number.

I haven't had the chance to try this yet, but, you may be able to access ooma's website on your cell phone and listen to the messages that way.
