caller id on received cell phone calls

Post by Belosh » Mon Oct 12, 2009 2:21 pm

i am getting "unknown" for callers from cell phones. also, i am getting unknown caller on call waiting calls. any suggestions?

i currently have integrated setup but plan to switch to unintegrated when my phone number ports and i cancel my landline.

I don't have a technical answer for you but I can tell you that I had similar things going on but once my port went through it was like magic where everything was as it should be.

Do you have caller id on the landline ooma is integrated with?
If you do not, incoming calls will say "unknown".

yes i do. it is only cell phone calls and call waiting calls that dont give me the info i seek. i do plan to un-integrate after the port.

my problem in waiting is if i cant solve the issues, my wife wont want to keep it. i have to make a decision prior to my port, because if i return it, i need to have kept my old number.
