Only affiliated as a satisfied customer. The Ooma Premier feature you are interested in is called "Back-up Number".

A complete list of Ooma Premier features is available here.

Just to be clear Vonage calls it " Network Availability Number:" and as a courier I'm out often and need to know that customers that don't have my(ever changing) cell number can reach me. My income depends on it.

The Back-up Number feature of Ooma Premier is conceptually the same as Vonage's "Network Availability Number".

Great, thanks! If you want a Google Voice invite, or a Google Wave invite email me.

Now all I need is "Google Voice Extensions (GVE) " to be active, but that's not a deal breaker so as soon as the Ooma handset is available I'll get Ooma.

Here is a screenshot of the Call Forwarding page for Premier, which includes Call Forwarding on Network Outage:

So it looks like I can do call forwarding on network outage and concurrent ringing?

I just talked with Ooma CS and forgot to ask if I can do both.

Btw, the handset will be out on Thursday and the Google Voice extension(I think that's what it's called) will follow sometime in January 2010.

Multi ring would be in place of CFNO. But the net effect is the same, when your network is down only the call-forwarded phone is going to ring.

CFNO? I need to have concurrent ringing on normally, but in case of network outage I need my call to go to my cell phone without any intervention by me, I won't be home during the day.

CFNO= Call Forward Network Outage.

If you have multi-ring enabled to your cell and your network is up, both your cell and Ooma number will ring. If your network is down only your cell will ring.

If you have CFNO enabled with your cell as the backup number your cell will only ring if your network is down.

With both options, your cell rings when your network is down.

Thanks, sorry for the trouble, but I have a handle on it now. I'm going to buy Thursday.
