Both of my lines are same area code and same prefix.

Groundhound... sorry for asking the obvious... have you tried 10 digits + the #? (I wasn't sure if you tried that from your previous post.)

Yep, tried that too but the # made no difference with 10 digits.

We have a similar 2 line/2 number situation. This is a great "feature." (Dial just 7 digits plus #)

Ooma, it ain't broke -- so don't fix it.

(Now if they could figure out a way to do three way calling with the scout and hub set up in this "independent" mode I'd be all set).

This is weird. When I first set up the 2nd line and assigned it to the hub, and tried calling between the two lines, it only worked one way. Now when I try, it works both ways. Key is you only can put in 7 numbers and then you have to hit the # sign quickly. It was good people said it was working for them, because then I tried again.

Yeah, same here. I noticed once in awhile it didn't work and now I see why, I was slow at the trigger. Thanks.

Still only works the one way for me, no matter how fast I am on the # key. Probably because of the different area codes. I wonder why the different area codes don't matter when I call line-1 from line-2 using 7 digits plus #?

I'd like to be able to call one line from the other, however, I ported my number for one line and used an Ooma assigned number in a different area code for the second line.

Bottom line, the area codes are different and 7-digits+# doesn't work, and 10-digits+# goes to voicemail and doesn't ring the line. *sigh*

There is another thread on this here:

I wish OOMA would give us the ability to call between the Hub and Scout. How hard can it be? It shouldn't even require a phone line.

I have the same issue. I can't call the Linx secondary number from my primary Telo number and I can't call my primary Telo number from my secondary number. I don't see it anywhere in the Ooma documentation or any online FAQ. Is this a feature or a bug? If it's working as designed, why isn't it mentioned anywhere in the documentation?

Ooma is trying to make it so numbers attached to the same main device can call each other.
