I just installed ooma a couple of hours ago. I think I'm missing something.

The blue logo is still flashing. I used the option 2b set-up first and let ooma run for about 45 minutes before switching to option 2a. I didn't realize I should wait for blue light to stop blinking.

I have internet access and everything set-up in
I have a dial tone, but I don't get an ooma dial tone when I pick-up the phone.
I do notice Line 1 lights up when I pick-up the phone. But I voice mail prompts don't kick-in when I press the play > key.
I still have my land line active and am waiting for port.
The internet and home network lights are steady yellow, green blinks every now and then.

What am I missing? Should I switch back to the option 2b set-up and wait for the steady blue light?

If you have your landline integrated, then maybe that's why you don't hear the Ooma dialtone.
Did you select a new Ooma supplied number or did you select to use your existing landline number when you activated the Telo?

I think the flashing blue logo means that it's updating the software. You may have interrupted it when you switched configurations.

If it's still flashing tomorrow morning, unplug the Telo for 30 seconds and plug it back in.

You can also check the status here:
You have to have your PC or router connected to the Home Network port on the back of the Telo to access that page.

To setup voicemail, pick up your phone connected to the Telo and press the play (>) button.

Blue logo was still flashing when I woke up.

I unplugged Telo for 30 sec's or more and plugged it back up. Blue light still flashed quite a while.

setup status check read:
Internet - connected
ooma core - detecting
phone line - connected
ooma services
Phone setup - we are waiting for your phone line to be configured for the ooma network.
Second line - enabled
voicemail - enabled

I decided to go back to the beginning, disconnect everything and set-up with ooma behind modem/router. I've waited about 2 hours now and ooma logo is still flashing blue. It thought this would take only 20 minutes or so.
the current status says:

Internet connected
ooma core - detecting
phone line - no phone line detected (i think I'm supposed to hold off on connecting the phone line until after the software downloads and I after I change the settings back to between modem and router).
second line - endabled
voicemail - enabled

What should I do now?

I had to disconnect telo to get my other pc's running. I'll come back to this in a couple of weeks when my phone number is close to being ported as in the meantime, even if I were with telo, I'd still be using my active land line with unlimited minutes until I can fully shut it down.

Connect the Telo's "To Internet" port to a LAN port on your router.
Don't try to use it for at least an hour. It has a couple of software updates to install.

Blue blinking light means there is no connection to the network.
Connect a pc or laptop to the HOME/NETWORK connection on the Telo. Reboot the pc/laptop to obtain an ip from the Telo.
Go to
Go to the STATUS page. Does it show an ip here: MODEM: Connected (or not connected) (ip address)
If you don't see an ip address your router is not giving the Telo an ip address to connect.
