With multiring, what happens if you call the ooma number FROM the other (multiring) number? For example, if I set up multiring to also call my cell phone, what happens when I call home (ooma number) from my cell phone? Does it try to also ring my cell phone?
With Vonage, I couldn't use their "Simulring" service because of this. When I called home from my cell phone, it would also ring my cell phone. My cell phone carrier then would see a call from my cell phone to my cell phone, and send me right to voicemail to check new messages. (That is one way to check VM from a cell phone - call yourself!)
What does ooma do? Is it smart enough to see that I'm actually calling FROM the multiring number and NOT try to call the multiring number?
