Adding a separate voicemail greeting for my second line?

Post by missamo80 » Mon Jul 05, 2010 7:12 am

I got a "hey you have cool features" message from ooma today that says the following:
Private Number and Voicemail
Choose a second number for your home office from any calling area in the US. Have it ring on all phones distinctively, or set it up so that it only rings your office extension and rolls to a separate voicemail box. This allows you to easily separate your personal and business calls.
This is exactly what I want to do :) I have a second number already selected on my premier account, but I'm at a loss for how to configure the "separate voicemail box". How do I do this?

Thanks!

Neil

First you have to assign the second number to a personal device, scout if you have a hub or handset if you have a Telo.
Once that is done call the second number from the personal device you assigned it to and you will be taken through voice mail setup for that number.

Oh. So there's no way to do this without buying another piece of hardware?
