They have apparently disabled it permanently.
The tune you hear when you take your phone off hook is not the connection tone. That is the Ooma dial tone.

They should update the help column and info (?) pages if it is a permanent change otherwise it gets even more confusing than the dial/connect tone already is.

I got to agree. They need to update the help column and remove the reference to the options that aren't there. As a new ooma customer, I was pretty confused and kept loading and reloading the page and logging in and out thinking the preference wasn't loading for some reason.

Forgive a dumb question, but what is an "Ooma connection tone"?

It is something they disabled now.

A. Added a "system preferences" page. This page includes the ability to control two things:

1. 10-digit dialing: Ability to dial area code + phone number without the leading 1. This makes it easier to call back a missed call from you phone.
2. Connection tone: The connection tone is the chime played to the caller when a phone call connects. You can choose from some new tones or disable the feature.

B. Added "export to excel" function to call logs.

C. The dialog box shown when saving preferences now dismisses itself after a few seconds instead of requiring you to hit OK.
