Cannot receive inbound calls/outbound works

Post by jrod9707 » Fri Jul 23, 2010 9:44 pm

1) My caller ID appears to say St Peters Church why would it do that?

2) More important question is I have the Telo handset and I can make outbound calls and it sounds good but it does not take inbound calls. The do not disturb(envelope icon) is not red.
Anybody have a clue about what I can try to get this working correctly?

When you activated your system did you choose to integrate your existing landline and use your current number? If so, you need to have the WALL port on your Telo connected up to a working phone jack in your home. As to the Caller ID issue, the number was probably once used by St Peters Church. When ooma provisions the number for you they put your information into a database that will eventually be read by other phone companies. The update usually takes about 10 days or so but can take longer. In the meantime, think of the fun you can have with your friends! :P

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
