Hi:

I just purchased the new ooma Bluetooth adapter for my ooma telo and I synced up both my iphones to it. Here is my question.

When I receive a call on my iphone, it goes through the ooma telo so I can answer it from any phone in my house. When I do that am I running the cell call through the broadband to the ooma telo or is the ooma telo used as an antenna for the cell phone?

I'm looking at purchasing a femtocell adapter from AT&T to boost my cell single in my house so my reception is better but now that I have the Bluetooth unit for my ooma telo do I need to?

Thanks

Your mobile phone is receiving the call over the airwaves, and routing the audio portion over the Telo (via Bluetooth).

So, if your mobile phone reception is almost unusable at your house, you will still want to get a femptocell node.

That will be an interesting arrangement, since you'll have your entire phone call going over your broadband connection twice - one set of your phone call audio going via VoIP to your mobile provider, and one set of your phone call audio going via VoIP to ooma.

Hopefully, your internet connection can handle it.
