I have OOMA configured with 2 numbers. In the Preferences, one of the 2 has to be selected as the default. Each of the numbers has different text for OB call identification.

Is there any way, other than a change in Preferences default, to change the OB call number?

Maybe from the handset?

Before starting a call, dial **1 to show the 1st number or **2 to show the 2nd number

Actually, the correct codes are **0 for the first number and **1 for the second one.

Not to be overly technical here, but... unless caller ID is blocked, wouldn't the number selected in Preferences be shown by default as the outgoing number? If so, would it be necessary to press **0 (except when the secondary number has been selected for the outgoing caller ID #)?

Hmm - good point, Ill try tonight - I have the second number as the preference for OB calls, no block.

O.K. Just completed a comprehensive test. My primary # listed as caller ID #: Direct dialing showed my primary number on the caller ID. Pressing **1 showed my secondary number on caller ID.

Then I switched my preferences so that my secondary number as the default caller ID #. Direct dialing showed my secondary [default] number on the caller ID. Pressing **0 showed my primary number on caller ID. Pressing **1 also showed my secondary number on caller ID.

I think that should cover it.

Great - makes sense

Pressing **0 showed my primary secondary number on caller ID. Pressing **1 also showed my secondary number on caller ID.

So with secondary number as default in preferences, direct dialing shows the default, **0 shows default and **1 shows default as well? - or do I misread this

No... I miswrote it. I have edited to correct. Thanks.
