Can't Log into Ooma via iPhone 5

Post by FreePhone » Wed Jul 03, 2013 3:42 pm

I used to be able to log into my Ooma account via my iPhone through Safari to check my voicemails. But now it won't let me do this anymore. Why can't Ooma fix it or make a free App that allows us to do this? Some of us don't carry our laptops around in our pockets, like we do with our smart phones.

Why don't you just dial your Ooma number and then hit * when your answering maching picks up? Then you can check your voice mails as normal.

I have mine set up to send me a text message when I have a new voice mail. In the text message is my number which I click on and it dials it for me. Then proceed as mentioned above.

iOS 6.1.3 with my iphone 4s works okay; both with mobile version and regular version of my.ooma.com in listening to voicemail.

I've learned a lot here... two months ago I didn't even know how to spell VOIP and now I are one.

I have an iPhone 5. I set up my ooma so that it emails me a copy of the voicemail that I can just tap and listen on the iPhone. In other words I receive an email on the iPhone and the voicemail message is attached, which plays as soon as I tap on it. This is incredibly useful, especially when we are traveling. Now I guess if you get a large number of messages each day this might get to be a pain, but in our case it's perfect. You still have to log in to actually delete the messages later, but you do get to listen to the voicemail immediately after it is recorded.

On the iPhone under settings > Safari > accept cookies, make sure the "never" choice is not checked. Instead choose "from Visited" or "always", though there may be security concerns with the latter. Safari would not load the Ooma mobile site for me when "never" was checked.
