Call Waiting Caller ID

Post by cclauset » Mon Dec 14, 2009 10:43 pm

It appears that Ooma (or is it just the Telo?) does NOT support Call Waiting Caller ID (CWCID)? I've never seen it… when I'm on an existing call and another call comes in via Call Waiting, my handsets (which displayed CWCID before I installed my Ooma Telo) would display the Caller ID of the incoming (second) call so I would know whether to flash over to pick up the second line and place the original call on hold.

It never worked when I was within the 60 day trial for Premier, so it doesn't appear to be Basic vs Premier feature. And while I thought that maybe it had something to do with my landline not being ported yet, even after the port was completed this feature was still broken.

Call Waiting without Caller ID is pretty annoying. The luster of Ooma has worn off… while I appreciate the cost savings, the lack of progress in implementing basic functions is frustrating. And while I'm interested in some of the announced new features, I'd honestly rather they fix the existing features first... :x

I have the same problem. My phone just beeps when the second call comes in. No caller ID for the second caller.

I used call waiting last night and when I switched back to the original call the person couldn't hear me. Anyone else have this issue?

Can we get a status update on whether we should hope for this to be fixed in the next 1, 3, 6 or 9 months? The last statement I've seen was an acknowledgment of this being a known issue 3+ months ago...

Not a peep from Ooma on this. Either its a quality hardware limitation, it would not be so far feteched, or its been put off for other things such as contacts, google voice extension, purevoice etc.

Hello,

Looks like this was fixed, but now is broken. Bug 5984

It's been broken for 3+ months now (from Fri Nov 13, 2009):

Pardon my skepticism, but has there been any progress toward resolving bug 5984 in the last 3+ months?
