When I'm calling my daughter (Road Runner VOIP) I hear two rings, observe a disconnect, then get a busy signal at my end.

I've had my Ooma system installed and running over two years now. This is a new item I'm dealing with. She's been on her sane system almost as long.

What gives?

Are you having problems calling anyone else?

Is your daughter having problems calling you or anyone else?

I'd have my daughter call Road Runner VoIP and complain that you can't reach her.

I'd call Ooma Customer Service and complain that you can't reach your Daughter.

Another forum member sent me this story tonight. It may not be related to your situation but does deal with a ringing issue.
A Kansas farm wife called the local phone company to report her telephone failed to ring when her friends called - and that on the few occasions, when it did ring, her dog always moaned right before the phone rang.

The telephone repairman proceeded to the scene, curious to see this psychic dog or senile lady. He climbed a telephone pole, hooked in his test set, and dialed the subscriber's house. The phone didn't ring right away, but then the dog moaned and the telephone began to ring.

Climbing down from the pole, the telephone repairman found:
1. The dog was tied to the telephone system's ground wire with a steel chain and collar.
2. The wire connection to the ground rod was loose.
3. The dog was receiving 90 volts of signaling current when the number was called.
4. After a couple of jolts, the dog would start moaning and then urinate.
5. The wet ground would complete the circuit, thus causing the phone to ring.

Which demonstrates that some problems
CAN be fixed by pissing and moaning.

Thought you'd like to know.
