Scenario; I answer a call on my Ooma Handset. The call is for my wife who is upstairs. I want her to be able to pick up the extension and answer the call but she gets another dial tone. What's the procedure for accomplishing this?

In that situation, I just use the flash function on the phone that is being picked up. The call will be joined and then you can hang up the Ooma. Or at least, that's the way my system works with my Panasonic handsets.

I have the opposite situation. If my wife makes an outgoing call using the primary number, how can I make a concurrent outbound call on the second line? The '**1' doesn't seem to work although, I'm only on day two of this adventure.

If Telo, you'd need a Telo handset. If Hub, you'd need a Scout.

Good suggestion. Thanks. I'll try that. And here I thought a second line was pretty cool. :o
