Turn off auto answer?

Post by jcarli00 » Tue Jul 12, 2011 12:14 pm

Anyone know how to turn off auto answer on my 2 year old (white) ooma box? I don't want an answering machine anymore...People use my cell for that. I still want a phone, but with no answering machine.

Doesn't appear to offer an "off " option, but I figure most callers would drop w/o leaving a message if you set voice mail pickup to 59 seconds. If you did that & used multi ring, calls would generally go to your mobile & then mobile vm.

I know that's a work around, but..........
