Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
Businesses can pay to have the number displayed, even if it isn't a toll free number you're calling, google voice being one of them (you can block the last caller, even if the # was blocked). Anyway, and unfortunately, Ooma will display their outgoing pop #s when dialing toll free numbers which show realtime CNP (or ani converted to caller ID, whatever) - instead of your ooma number. Some folks will notice this when calling certain credit card companies, or other businesses that want your phone # to partially identify you. A good test number is 800-444-4444, which normally will read caller ID (unless it is bogus then read the ani) - but in the case of Ooma it always displays their 565 #, instead of my Ooma number. There are technical ways Ooma can correct this (Google voice will properly spoof the caller ID to your google voice number - and yes, it is spoofing, since we share Ooma's switch(es) and they have their own #s (similar to a hotel switch if you will).mjv5864 wrote:Yesterday, I placed a call and dialed *67 and the number. The lady on the other end said, "Oh, I see you are calling from Connecticut". I'm not sure if she saw the # but shouldn't is say Restricted or Unavailable?
