I am thinking of getting one of these, but have a few questions.
I am planning on pairing this with my Viewsonic G Tablet running a custom rom so that it appears to be a phone.

If I pair these 2 devices, will be able to answer incoming calls on my gtab that are coming in on my ooma number?

Is this only for devices that already have a phone number?

How car from the bluetooth adapter can my tablet be?

The 2 kinds of devices this feature is meant for are cellphones and bluetooth headsets. Only 1 can be used at a time (be on a call).

  • Cellphones: Ooma Telo would act as a bluetooth headset so you can answer your cell phone calls using Telo (via phones or handsets connected to your Telo).
  • Bluetooth headsets: Bluetooth headsets are used to answer Telo calls as if Telo is a cellphone.
Unless your tablet can act as either a cellphone (able to receive incoming calls and able to pair with a bluetooth headset) or a bluetooth headset (be able to pair with a cellphone or other devices using bluetooth headset protocol), it won't work.

As far as bluetooth range, I think it is roughly 30 feet.
