Call Forward if Ooma is Offline

Post by scoutconnor » Sun Dec 14, 2008 3:55 pm

A feature to forward a call to another phone if and only if the Ooma device is not connected to the network, such as during a power outage

I would also like to see this feature, please. It could be set up by Ooma as a "no answer call forward" (after X rings), or "unreachable call forward".

My original intent was that if someone lost internet that they would still be reachable. your ideas are great but most likely ooma would classify them as "Premier" features and I do not want to pay $99 a year for that one feature. I hope that my original idea would just be a "Core" feature

I would love to see the "call forward if offline" feature as well. Ooma is the first VoIP service I've ever used that doesn't have this feature. I think it's an awesome feature, so you can still receive calls even if your power or internet goes out. I always had mine forward to my cell phone with my previous VoIP providers.

Agreed! VERY important, so that if we're out and about, or out of the area, and there's any kind of problem which would knock our Hubs offline, that we receive phone calls.

I definitely agree with this feature. Our ooma service has been off-and-on tonight, December 24. We still have our land line now, but won't after the porting is complete. I don't want to not be able to receive a call. Reliability of service is probably the most critical feature of any phone service. This feature would provide an added layer of reliability to the overall ooma seervice.

very good idea, but I dont know that its technically feasible depends on if they can gen the forward at their central location, would be nice tho to predefine the number for your cell, set the Inactivity timeout for it to auto forward... 15 minutes? 30 minutes? Then remove the forward when your Hub is back online.

Would also be nice if the system sent an email when it auto-forwarded or auto-reversed.
