My primary land line has two phone numbers. One is the main number and the other is an "ALTERNATE RING" number. So I have only one phone line that is rung from two separate numbers. Can I port both these numbers to Ooma and ring just the hub or would one number have to be ported to the hub and one to the scout? (I don't care about maintaining the alternate ring, but some people have my home number and others have my "office" alternate ring number)

What I want to do is have a new number for the scout (for my roommate) and use the 2 current numbers ring only the Hub. This would allow me to get rid of 2 land lines instead of just one.

Yep, you can port both your numbers to Ooma - you'll just need to initiate one port at a time, and it's better to initiate the port on your "secondary" landline number first.

With a Premier subscription, you can configure phone numbers to ring separate devices of your Ooma system. You can configure these numbers to ring as you would like above - with one number ringing the Scout and the other ringing the Hub. If you want your system to support more than 2 numbers, you can purchase an additional virtual number for $4.99/mo

Thanks for the explanation and please correct me if I got this wrong:

I should port my "alternate ring" number to my Ooma hub fist and after that is complete, initiate porting my landline's primary number to my Ooma with the instruction to also port this number to my Ooma hub, I am assuming there will be an additional ($39.99) porting fee. And there will be an additional $4.99/mo fee. My scout can be activated with a newly assigned number.

Or, I guess I could have my first number ported to the hub and my alternate ring number ported to my scout and pay one $39.99 fee and no additional monthly fee. My roomate could buy his own Ooma and get his own number with no additional ongoing fees unless he wants premium features. Is there any issue with having 2 Ooma hubs connected to one 5Mbs cable internet connection?
