Multi-ring during power outage

Post by chiefjim » Sun Apr 05, 2009 6:22 am

I have multi-ring set to call my cellphone. If during a power outage the hub is offline will this feature still work? In other words does multi-ring require an online hub to function?

I don't know.
Why don't you test it and let everyone know what you find.

Disconnect power from your ooma hub.
Wait 5 minutes.
Have someone else call your ooma number.
Did your cell phone ring?

When you set this up as a multi ring does it always ring the cell, or just when the power is out?

Thanks Wayne, it would be nice to have a feature to ring your cell only during a power outage.

I agree, that would be a good feature.
