You probably accidentally pressed the brightness button on the Telo and if the brightness was set to the highest level it will then be set to off. Press the brightness button again.fahdandemily wrote:After rebooting everything (my combined DSL modem/router and ooma telo) a few times then searching around the setup.ooma.com page on the Telo, the outgoing calls have spontaneously started working (for now), but now for some reason all the lights on the Telo are off. The only thing I actually changed in the setup website was increasing the upload bandwith from the default too 600kbps, but why that should affect the lights or the inherent ability to even MAKE a call I don't understand.
Is there some hidden option in the Telo that allows it to turn off the lights? I know I did not actually change ANYTHING except the upload/outgoing bandwith. The only other thing I noticed is that after rebooting my router and telo the dsl router told me it found another device on the network trying to act as a router and that it could cause a conflict. I told the DSL router to resolve it on its own and that allowed the internet to start working (it had stopped when I rebooted everything ) and perhaps enabled the outbound calls, but I don't really get what is going on here. Any ideas?
The light dimmer is the center button on the top row, next to the speaker volume button.fahdandemily wrote: Is there some hidden option in the Telo that allows it to turn off the lights?
Oh,..I got a bad feeling about this, every time something happens I lose my forwards translating into income.
Sounds like you're putting a lot of faith in a service - both VoIP and Ooma itself - that's cutting edge and not known for 6 sigma reliability. You probably need a back up if you're that reliant.VicMatson wrote: Oh,..I got a bad feeling about this, every time something happens I lose my forwards translating into income.
When I got Ooma, I went out and got 2 prepaid cell phones that also work in the house - just in case.
I want to have another option for communication in an emergency or just because of need.
As soon as Google Voice does porting I will. I've also had an account with them and they seem to be better. Ooma is supposed to be doing Google extensions next week(yes I do except a few delays) so that may be of some help.
Check out Google Voice call widgets. They're a great way of making it possible for people to call you based on a website widget without giving out your number.VicMatson wrote:Oh, make no mistake I have cell phones, I just don't want to give the number out.

I love the Google Voice call widgets. As a recovery pastor I DO want people to be able to reach me 24/7. But I don't want phone spammers that would be attracted by a posting full number like 800-555-7355. So I have the call widget on our web page and people can call easily and for free from anywhere in the US. Since it is a GV number, it rings me where ever I am. Google Voice and ooma are great together. I can't wait to have them roll out the GV Extensions that were previewed at CES.Groundhound wrote:Check out Google Voice call widgets.
