Disabling answering machine

Post by Zsolt » Sun Feb 19, 2012 12:43 pm

How do I disable Ooma's answering system on the device? I'd like to use the answering machine on my home phone
Thanks Zsolt

The best way is to go into My Ooma and set the Broadband Answering Machine to answer at 59 seconds.
Your other answering machine will than answer the call before Ooma does.

Another way is to call Ooma Customer Support and have them turn off the Ooma Broadband Answering Machine. But in this case, the deletion of the Ooma Broadband Answering Machine is permanent, and you can not have the Ooma Broadband Answering Machine turned back on at a later time.
