However the old style handsets would no longer work if you did this.
You would need new HD2 handsets or just use a cordless base connected to the Telo.

I created a DEVICE called FAX. This changed the TELO device associated with two lines to FAX. Calls from the HANDSET opened the voice mail retrieval system. Calls to each number in the account range the phone plugged into the back of the Telo. This configuration did not work so I am off to read up on it some more.
The headsets are nice but trying to use the second number for other than chatting is proving to be far too difficult.
I already have a second line so I did the following:
1. Clicked to add a "private account."
2. Associated the private account with the second telephone number.
3. Created a FAX device in the second group.
4. Created an HD2 device in the default group.
Now I am waiting five minutes to see what happens. Checking immediately both lines went to the private group.
Please update the FAX instructions page to be consistent with your current product. 64000 folks have read that page which means it should be a priority.
On the telephone line screen I have an account for each telephone number. One called Main Account and one called FAX. The top or Main Account has a picture of an HD2 handset since it was set up as "HD2." This is associated with my ported main number.
The bottom row has a device called FAX in it associated with the FAX number or second number obtained from Ooma.
