I called home today and it went to voicemail, but I never got the voicemail message and no option to leave a VM. I wasn't sure if my wife answered but dropped the phone, or if Ooma is on the fritz. I called back again and the same thing. A couple of minutes later and I got my voicemail greeting.

Does this happen to anyone else?

No. It is not on. Even if it were on, I would expect to hear the voice mail greeting rather than nothing.

Cheers,

I think I had the same thing happen about a half hour ago. I wasn't able to pick up the phone in time, and screened the voicemail being left. The voice quality of the inbound call was clear and from a cell phone if that matters. The message light never blinked afterwards and I have no message stored on the website. The inbound call time and length did register on the call log.

I'm getting concerned about reliability...

I'll need the number of that cell phone that called you to investigate why the call wasn't recorded. I'll send you an email.

Thanks,
Bobby

I've got the same thing going on. It seems that about 50% of the time the voicemail picks up after the 4th ring, as it should, but there is no greeting and no way to leave a message. The other half of the time it works correctly.

I checked my call log, and the times VM fails the call shows as a missed call, but when VM picks up properly it shows as a completed incoming call.

Let us know if you find a resolution!

I just had the same thing happen minutes ago. Call came in and I decided to let it go to VM. Ooma picked up, but the message did not play (I use the system message with my name.) Caller was left sitting there saying "hello?" thinking that I had picked it up.

Rather than waiting to hear what solution others might have found I encourage any of you that are having the issue to call Customer Service with details on what your issue is. The more that call the faster ooma will sit up and take notice and the more information ooma will have to fix it.
