Might be a regional problem or maybe just a particular routing table. I was able to reach Tell me (the first number) and Papa John's (the second one) with no problem. Well, maybe just a little one. I was tempted to order a pizza but just had a late lunch and thought it might spoil my dinner. Calls went through fine though.

I guess its only in my area then?


Do u think this is a temporary problem then?

What is a routing table?

I would think it is probably a temporary problem, but if it persists into tomorrow I would call support with the times and numbers that were unsuccessful and see if they could research.

The routing tables are basically "maps" of how a carrier connects your ooma VOIP call to the required called party. ooma has the capability of checking to see what pathway was used in the failed attempt to connect your call.

For me, when I call a 800 number, it says "the number you are dialing is temporarily unavailable". It has been happening over a month...

I get the "temporarily unavailable" message when I call that number from my Ooma phone. If I call that number from my cell phone I get a fast busy. Sounds like something wrong on the other end. Other 800 numbers work fine for me.
