HOWEVER when I'm using the Beocom line one (AT&T landline) and a call comes in on the Telo, all of a sudden it works and I see the caller ID coming in on the Telo on line 2. How can that be?
B&O says their phones support two caller ID standards: DMTF and FSK. Does anyone else have this problem and hopefully any solution? I called Ooma support line and just couldn't get past the language barrier and couldn't get the guy to understand what I was asking. He kept saying it took awhile from my caller ID to enter the system.
I have Beocom's all through the house and have invested a lot of money into it, plus they are fantastic phones. I really need it to work. I've tried routing the Telo line through a caller ID box and back to the Beocom (the caller ID shows up correctly on the caller ID box, but not the Beocom) and it still doesn't work.
I have 2 lines connected to a B&O beocom 1.
Line 1: Verizon
Line 2: Ooma
Caller id works fine when line 1 only is connected
Caller id works fine when line 2 only is connected
Caller id fails on line 1 when line 2 is connected.
Anyone have any ideas?
I tried everything I could think of, putting a pass-through caller ID display, passing it through another phone (that shows the caller ID correctly), but nothing worked. I finally just bought another base station and split up my phones. I was using my Ooma for business calls only. I had so many problems with the Ooma, I finally gave up and went back to two land lines and the Ooma is in the drawer.
I was paying $50/mo for a line I rarely used.
I'll try to do without callerid in the meantime.
But thanks for letting me know.
