Let me set my Ooma callerid to my cell # like Skype does

Post by kbern » Sat May 02, 2009 9:23 am

After verification (by sending a text message verification code to my phone), Skype allows me to make my "Skype Out" calls use my cell phone's callerid. This is great since I don't want people I call to see all kinds of strange phone numbers for me, I just want them to see and remember my cell phone.

I want the same feature with Ooma, and if Skype can do it, I don't see why Ooma couldn't. It's a pretty important feature for me, since the only reason I have my Ooma landline is for call quality (I get bad cell reception) but I don't want people jotting down my Ooma landline number and calling me back on it.

good sugesstion. but in the mean time what you could do is enable multiring to your cell phone.

so when people call your ooma number it will on your cell phone as well.

(remember to check the box that says to call your ooma phone as well)
