I am on my 8th month of getting ripped off.

If I get a call while I am talking to someone I can
"flash" over to the 2nd call.
However when I try and switch back I can hear them but
they can never hear me...not once has it worked.

I only paid $99 for the upgrade for the call waiting and I have gotten 8 months of grief.

You may want to post your configuration info - Telo or Hub, using scout or handset, connected to a router, etc.

Also, call waiting is part of the basic features, Premier is not necessary to have call waiting.

Bundled calling features

Enjoy the convenience of caller-ID and call-waiting— at no extra charge.

You could try connecting the hub directly to the cable modem to see if that resolves the problem.

Also, have you turned off QOS or set the Modem Port MAC address to Use Built-In?

Is QOS off on the Hub, not router?

To change MAC to use built-in, go to and then select Network Settings. You'll see a selection to change, like this:
MODEM Port MAC Address
Use Built in:
Use Custom:

You need to connect a computer directly to the Home port on the Hub.

Also, did you try connecting directly to the cable modem to see if that fixed the problem?

(modem to OOMA to router)

Then you never tested to see if the router is causing your problem.

But going through the OOMA 1st killed my internet connection.
I have 2 Blu Ray players with internet streaming
a Samsung TV with internet streaming
a HAVA Internet streamer
a MediaGate HD Streamer
an Xbox 360 (online gaming)
and about 6 different computers (all get online)
and not one of them has any issue with the router.
(It is considered one of the best routers ever made I am told)

What exactly does the OOMA have or do that would make it hypersensitive?
Or why would my router be picking on the OOMA?
The OOMA MAC is listed in the Tomato "Device List" like everything else.
It seems to do everything except completely reconnect after a call waiting transfer.
