can you or someone please try calling 18003834600 and see what kind of message do you hear?

thanks...
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.

thank you for calling it for me. I just tried calling that number from my another house phone and cell phone and they went through. no busy signal.

very weird

if you dial * * 1 then the 800 number it works

if I dial the 1-800 without the **1 , it wont work.

Hopefully OOMA fixes this.

not that number but just calling out any 800 number.

by the way that 800 number is for LA USC health care network. I usually have to call that number to make appointment for my mom. and usually I will be put on hold for good 15 mins before someone answer the call. so it's not a good idea to use cell phone to call that number and waste my mins. It's very bothersome that the number doesn't work with ooma.

i believe for that number in particular, its on their end.

however, i am having system wide problems calling any toll free number.

Is there a direct number you can reach that hospital?


hope your mom gets better.

i try using ** but it won't work. it gives me fast busy signal. n if i use just 1800, it gives me temporarily unavailable. i guess i will file a report with ooma tech support.

"The number you are calling is temporary unavailable" is what I got when I tried that number (800-383-4600) just now.

I get the same for this number aswell. ATT cellular says this is not a working number.

A WhitePages.com search for that phone number yielded:
800-383-4600.png
Dr. Hudson's clinic
800-383-4600.png (127.4 KiB) Viewed 4203 times
Note that the WhitePages reply didn't mention the California city, so the map's reference point is probably just the geo-center of the state.

My guess is that the Hudson clinic, like so many other challenged businesses these days, has gone bupkes :o
