As of today, nobody can call my main line. They keep getting a busy signal. My Ooma setup page reported initially that "the line is busy, please wait for it to reset" or something like that. After a reboot, it doesn't report that, but the line is still busy. Earlier, in the week, I tried to set Ooma up to work from behind my router, and might have screwed something up there, but it did ring my main line after that, so... Two questions: what happened to my line? And is there a way to "reset" my Ooma setup to factory defaults?

No, one things is fixed, something else has gone wrong. :)

I thought I had started the port two months ago, could have sworn I started it, but apparently that wasn't the case. So I initiated the port yesterday. Is this a product of the port? If so, then how come my second (Ooma assigned) line goes straight to voicemail?

The land line is still plugged into the wall jack. The port is not estimated to complete until 4/22. Does the phone need to be removed from the jack?

First plug a phone directly into the walljack of your house to see if you can use your landline normally. Make sure calling out and receving calls are all okay. If you have VM service with your landline, make sure you clear all voicemails (listen & delete) them.

During number port, don't cancel your landline. When porting is done, your landline will automatically be cancelled. You can call in afterwards to make sure it is cancelled though.

Before Ooma tells you via email/phone call that port is complete, connect a phone cord from Ooma's "wall" port to your walljack in the house.

When Ooma tells you port is complete, you can remove the cord connecting "wall" port to your walljack in the house. You may want to reboot your Ooma for good measure.

Make sure "Do Not Disturb" evenlope isn't lit. Otherwise, all calls will go to Voicemail.

Let us know if you still have issues.

The wall jack is dead. I cannot send receive calls. According to the email I got earlier, porting would be complete by 4/22. Has somebody (halfway) jumped the gun? All lights on the device are blue.

I should be so lucky. :)

@ lbmofo

Nope. I didn't call them and cancel. I initiated the port on Ooma and did nothing else. It sounds like I need to call them and get them to restore the line until the port is complete?
