Shouldn't it just go to VM with no ringing?
Another peculiarity--when I check voicemail on "my ooma" page, all voice mails show "from" my home number. Is this normal? I would think that the "from" field would show the number from which the call was placed. In other words, if Cousin It calls me from 555-1212 and leaves a VM, shouldn't the "from" field in the VM page show 555-1212?
Additionally, I set up message forwarding (I think that's what it's called) to alert my cell phone to text me when I get a voice mail. It does that much. But the text message gives me two options: one is to "listen to VM" with what appears to be a link to an mp3 file; or the other is to "Listen via phone: which rings my home phone, with instructions to then press *. Well, you get the circular scenario here. . . .
If I choose to listen to the mp3, it rings my home phone, and for the reason outlined above, I can't retrieve VM this way. If I choose the "listen via phone" with the "then press *" option, the same thing happens.
So my issue is that I'm only able to retrieve VM by either pressing "play" on the blinking red play button on my Telo when I'm home, or by calling my own home number FROM my home phone.
I should add that I'm in the process of porting my phone number, which should be another 20 days till completion.
Has anyone experienced similar issues?

Thanks for the reply, Murphy. Yes. I've confirmed this by calling my wife's iPhone with the *67 prefix and it shows "blocked," or "private" (I don't recall) on her display.murphy wrote:Does your cell phone provider support *67 to turn off sending caller ID?
