OomaPhone Phone Settings: Auto Answer/Auto Hangup?

Post by robcohen » Sat Jun 26, 2010 3:30 pm

Hi,
Since there is no user guide, either on line or in the box, for the Ooma handsets (or for the main unit, for that matter), it's a bit difficult to guess what these settings on the handset actually do. Can someone explain please? I'd rather not guess and have unintended effects on my callers.

Menu/Phone Setting:
Auto Answer
Auto Hangup
Voicemail Spkr
Screen if Ring
Show User

Thanks!

Rob

Thank you - I did see those after I posted. My option for Call Screening is different than the one shown here. Think I've figured it out but it sure would be nice if Ooma would document these things - somewhere!

It's Call Screening /On/OFF or it changes to "Screen if ring on". I guess the last option screens calls on that handset only if its ringer is enabled.

Any idea what Show User /On/Off is about?

Thanks!

Rob
