Distinctive Ring (for fax)

Post by MadCityGuy » Mon Mar 09, 2009 1:14 pm

With my land line I have two phone numbers. The first has a standard ring (and caller-id and voicemail, etc). The second number has none of these features but it has a distinctive ring (double-ring) which is recognized by my fax machine. I would REALLY like it if Ooma would provide this same kind of second-number-on-the-same-line service that I can get from the phone company. Obviously I think this should be either included with the basic service or available for a one-time fee since this does not involve any extra equipment or other recurring service costs for Ooma; this should require some fairly straightforward programming.

This functionality is available in the premier package, which new users get as a 60-day complimentary trial. I installed my Ooma system yesterday, and set up a 2nd line in the Lounge Preferences/Phone Numbers section. I configured that number for a double ring, and my fax picked it up on the first ring. Bingo!
