How to Turn Off OOMA Voice Mail

Post by vloher » Thu Dec 04, 2014 1:26 pm

I would like to completely turn off the voice mail feature in OOMA. I see where I could set it to pick up after 59 secs, but would prefer to turn it off completely. Is there a way to do this?

Thank you for your responses.

Ooma voicemail now completely turned off, i.e. mailbox disabled and voicemail pickup time ignored on the telo.

Is there a way for me to turn off my own voicemail.. I think I want the ooma voicemail turned off, so that calls roll to my traditional answering machine. But I would like the ability to do this on my own, or to be able to turn it back on if desired.

No, but I just set the voice mail pick up time for longer than it takes my machine to answer. It works fine for me.

Agree, have answering machine pick up in 4 rings. If I am on the phone, Ooma picks up in 5 rings. works perfect.

I also use a cordless answering system and have it set for 4 rings and ooma vm set for 5 rings, ooma voicemail acts like callwaiting voicemail if you're on the phone and don't wish to answer call waiting. It's also nice if you're using the ooma app and turn off the telo completely and recieve calls on your mobile. So versatile. However it would also be nice if ooma would put the option to turn vm completely off for the folks that have answering systems at home and don't wish to use ooma vm.
