I'm unable to call certain friends--my # "unknown"??

Post by Lord Vader » Sun Sep 04, 2011 5:15 pm

I just activated my service, and while I wait for my number to be ported, I tried calling someone--dial tone and all are fine--but because the persons I attempted to call have Anonymous Call Block, I can't complete my call because my Ooma number is apparently not transmitting Caller ID; it's being transmitted as "unknown" or "out of area."

Is there a way to fix this?

So it appears that I'm basically screwed for a while, because my name & number won't be provisioned for some time.
