I have both a Google Number as well as an OOMA number. I've given out my Google number to everyone and I like the number itself. So when someone calls google voice knows to auto foward that call to my OOMA number.
Then i read this
http://www.ooma.com/support/knowledgeba ... extensions
It shows this
But when I go to the OOMA set-up it says:
"Google Voice Extensions requires a phone number to be dedicated to your Google Voice calls. You have no extra phone numbers setup. Please click here to add a phone number to your account."
When I click on "add a phone number" it tries to find me a new number.
What am I missing?
The key word is "dedicated". The number that Ooma uses for GVE is a "Google Voice Virtual Number" (GVVN), and cannot be your primary Ooma number or a second number you have assigned to a Telo Handset. The GVVN can only be used for GVE, nothing else. I wish it was not this way, but that's the way it is at this time.dmclone wrote:"Google Voice Extensions requires a phone number to be dedicated to your Google Voice calls.
