No, only the Ooma branded BT adapter will work.


Why limit it to only the ooma branded adapter? A guy earlier in the thread had a generic bluetooth adapter working. Why disable those? I have one in a drawer and would love to use it. I see no point in buying what I already have sitting here. Open it up to use any bluetooth adapter!

Do you expect them to put a driver in their firmware for every BT adapter available on the planet?
They don't all work the same way.

No, but it was stated that the generic hub that was working before would stop working. I'll end up buying the ooma branded adapter just because I want the functionality, but it would be nice to use the one I already have. Hopefully our purchases of the ooma branded one help to support the service, as I want ooma to succeed. That is a big reason I am a premier subscriber.

I've followed all the steps and still can't get my LG 600G phone to recognize the Ooma bluetooth device, even though it's only a foot away. I've dialed the *"*"501 over and over and set my phone to VISIBLE and had it search for new devices, but no device is ever found.

Does anyone with this model phone have any advice on how they got it to work?

Yep, following those instructions to the letter, but nothing seems to happen with either my LG cellphone OR my Samsung WEP-250 headset. Maybe I got a bad bluetooth adapter.

Is the blue light on and blinking on the BT adapter?

No, I've never seen a blue light! (I didn't even realize it HAD one!) Does that mean this adapter is defective?

If you have a USB extender cable available, plug it into the Telo and then plug the BT adapter into the extender cable. That is the only way I could get mine to work.
