I agree this is a feature that most other VOIP providers offer and it needs to be added to OOMA.

I have been with vonage for a few years and took it for granted there was a "network availability" feature. I do have it set so when I get a voice mail it sends a SMS to my cell, but that's not as straight forward as just automatically forwarding the calls.
So far.... I like OOMA. Now if Comcast can stay up... I'll be a happy camper!!

After today's outage, this is a must! I'm switching over from Vonage and this is one of several features that I miss. I just don't miss paying $50 a month for Vonage business service!

Looks like another outage today. Call forward when offline is an absolutely essential feature for a VOIP.

So this would be a feature to the basic service. I assume this already works with the Premier service using Multi-Ring.

As a premier customer, I would also like this implimented on Basic as it fills the gap that is left when converting from Land Line reliability to a service that relies on a 3rd party ISP's service.

You'd assume this would work with the multi-ring premier feature, as I also assumed, but we'd both be wrong.

If the system if offline (ie power failure etc) multiring doesn't function. However voicemail does pick up, so I suppose it's not a total loss.

Having used this feature in the past via VoicePulse, it's a lifesaver. You'd think this would be easy enough to implement.

I'd also consider this a core feature, but if this was added to premier's options it would probably attract a lot of attention (and money). I know I'd subscribe.

Multi-ring worked for me when I tested it with the ooma hub unplugged. It won't ring the number you have set if you're calling from that number.

Crucial feature. Just switched from CallVantage and thought this type of feature would be provided by ooma. Need to look at Vonage now....
