Stand Alone Caller ID

Post by SPORK777 » Sat Apr 24, 2010 1:46 pm

Before ooma I used a stand alone Caller ID box with my tele provider. One line plugged into the wall jack, anothe liner into the phone(so it was installed between the wall jack and phone). Can i still use it with a ooma scout and a phone? I ask because I can't figure out how to hook it up, as the scout is hooked between the phone and the wall jack. Or, must I get a pone with caller ID built in?

Connect the ooma phone port to the input jack of the caller ID box.
Connect the output port of the caller ID box to your phone.
