Calls forwarded TO my ooma number FROM my toll-free number

Post by kksoft » Thu Aug 13, 2009 2:00 pm

I have a toll-free number so my customers call call me. The toll free number is a computer attendant that asks them to push one or two after the greeting and FORWARDS the live caller to my ooma number. BEFORE I switched to ooma only I had a land-line for my ooma number, now it is ooma only.

NO calls FROM my toll-free number can get through to my ooma number. Yes, I have UN-checked anonymous call block and have NO private or public numbers blocked. My toll-free number people, Grasshopper, say that maybe ooma is blocking forwarded calls FROM a toll-free number.

Can anyone help? Thanks

I'm not sure why ooma wouldn't accept forwarded calls from your 800 number because it accepts forwarded calls from my google voice number. If you have a google voice number maybe forward your 800 number to that and it will forward the call to tour ooma number. A double forward I guess bur if it works who cares. If you don't have a google number you might ask someone on this forum if they have an extra invite. That's where I got mine.

One thing to check is maybe your number is on the pooled spam list (maybe a prior owner of the #) - I would suggest you verify your settings are to pass the caller ID of the caller (and not the DNIS er your own toll free #) -- and also make sure you have turned off any sort of blocking - just to test - then after this, give them a call for support if it's still being blocked or not going though.

I posted on toll free numbers before. My 800 number automatically rings my ooma number without delay.

There may be a better plan available for you or at least one that does not require steps to connect.
