Ring Pattern

Post by eljnlm » Thu Apr 21, 2011 3:22 pm

I know it is possible to have different ring patterns on incoming calls. Is it possible to have an ooma telo handset have a different ring tone for one individual incoming phone number and have the default ring pattern for all other incoming numbers?

I could not figure out a way with 1 single number on OOMA setup page. I set up a second number with different default ring. To keep the same number with different ring tones for a few callers, I bought a set of Dect 6 phones, Uniden and they have this capability built in.

EA PA - you have a telo handset don't you? Does it allow you to assign a ring tone to a specific caller like the Uniden. I think this what the OP is wanting to do with his telo handset.

BTW - The Panasonics also do this.

Yes I have handset, and no I cannot find this option. I just went over every menu item and I cannot see any way from handset.
