Post by kaufmja » Thu Nov 24, 2011 7:51 am

I can configure my iphone 4 and ooma telo to have my iphone 4 pick up calls to my ooma phone number. The phones both ring
and if i due not answer and let it go to voice mail ,the ooma voice mail does not register, and it rolls over to my cell phone voice mail.
how due i get the ooma telo to answer and not the iphone?

In your my.ooma.com Call Forwarding Preferences, enable "Require key press before answering forwarded calls" and save.

That way, if you don't answer, your Ooma voicemail will pick up.

For this setup, I found the best "Voicemail pick-up time" in the Voicemail Preference to be 30 seconds (5 rings) so you have a chance to answer using cell as well if not at home.

"Require key press before answering forwarded calls" is especially helpful when your cell phone is off; when cell is off, calls will go immediately to your cell phone VM (you won't even have enough time to answer the call at home).
