I am porting my existing landline and I am temporarily connecting ooma to my landline, as opposed to having a temporary number. My current landline has very basic service - no voicemail, no call waiting, nothing. I tried testing the call waiting by placing an outgoing call, while also placing an incoming call from my cell phone. I just got a busy signal. Is that because I'm hooked in to my current landline and I can expect that until I cut service?
The sound quality seemed good, from what little I experienced it last night. I can't tell the differenceBut now I'm also wondering if this is hooked through my landline, do the calls get routed over the landline and am I going to see a difference once my landline service is disconnected?

...and in fact NEED to have Ooma reconfigure either now or once your landline goes dead, otherwise you may have problems with your Ooma device. If it is configured WITH a landline it needs to be UN-configured by Ooma when the landline is disconnected.murphy wrote: You can still do that by calling support and asking them to configure the unit to work without a land line.
maybe you still need some "tweaking" if there are some noticeable affects. take a look through the "Call Quality" forum for some ideas. make sure you have the QOS set properly on the Telo and, if you have the Telo connected after the router, make sure the QOS settings on the router are set to give high priority over the phone traffic.darag2358 wrote:For the person I'm talking to, it's just a little noticeable but very acceptable.
