You aren't alone. There is a "bug" that Ooma is attempting to fix.baddiver wrote:I have an older ooma and almost everytime I make a call there is a long delay, then it rings and hangs up really quick multiple times. this has been going on a couple weeks. ooma also goes directly to answering machine most of the time. I have dsl with a Westell 7500 modem that i am connected to. Any ideas?
The Ooma work around for calling outbound is to use a *99 prefix before dialing the number for Ooma Telos and Hubs. (Note: *99 can cause echo).
For Ooma Telos you can also use *98 or *96 (no echo) before dialing the number. Example: *98-1-xxx-xxx-xxxx
Doing a 20 minute power off, then repowering has helped some people. It doesn't last but a few hours, but...
Most important is to report this problem to Ooma Customer Support so that they know about your problem:

Also try this: Dial *#*#298 - Force configuration sync with Ooma servers.
