Outgoing Caller ID Number

Post by ptaylor874 » Tue Apr 28, 2009 1:47 pm

I know that if you have multiple Ooma lines you can select one of them as your outbound caller ID number... But, what if you want to select another number as your outbound caller ID number?

I'm asking for this because I use Google Voice, and I'd rather have my google voice number be the one that gets used for outbound caller ID instead of my Ooma number. I know there are concerns about people putting in fake caller ID numbers, but if you use a similar web interface to the one that Google Voice uses when you add an additional number, that concern is pretty much gone. When adding a new number in Google Voice, it gives you a code and calls that number. After you answer that phone, you enter the code the website gave you, and viola, it knows that is your number. A similar thing could be done on the Ooma website.

Anyone else looking for this functionality?
