Caller ID

Post by pajer » Thu Aug 13, 2009 7:43 am

I have kept my landline through windstream but have changed it to the greenstreak service which is just there high speed dsl service with a dial tone. Incoming calls are free but it does not have caller id. I have the landline hoked up to the ooma hub will that allow the ooma caller id to work on the landline number? Thanks for any help.

No, in that case, your landline must supply the caller id.

If your landline is not provisioned to work WITH ooma, an incoming call will not ring ooma. You would have to have a separate phone plugged into your wall jack to hear it ring in.

the greenstreak service does not provide caller id, i would need to go back to a regular phone plan which does provide caller id, however, it is 20.00 more per month which kind of defeats the purpose. What if i were to port the number over to ooma or what actually is provisioning or dsl dry loop mean? Thanks

Provsioning - How the ooma hub is configured to interact with the PSTN - either integrated with POTS line or a standalone line

Dry loop DSL - DSL service for internet access only , no telephone service
