Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
What is the context of the phone's installation, please?
That is, is it installed in an office, or in a home? if in an office, the solution might lie in the PBX or phone system box that it 'talks' to the phone network through.
And in any case, please tell me, what maker and model # is your phone?
Let me know, and I will advise you further. Thanks.
Thanks for the responses.
The phone model you have is a DECT phone, good.
Thanks for letting me know... but one, just one, further query: you use a 'void system'... what does that mean, please?
A-OK. Enjoy your day, meanwhile, and thanks.
Just one, further query: you use a 'void system'... what does that mean, please?
OK! Thanks for the information.
So... is your DECT phone, Panasonic KX-TG93911, connected to your computer?
If so, what phone service do you have, and is it MagicJack, or some other service?
OK. So it is Ooma box phone service, then.
Did line 2 formerly answer after 4 rings also, or has it always been this way, answering after one ring?
Does the second phone line still work, basically, if you can pick up on it fast enough, or if you make an outbound call on the second phone line?
OK! I think I have all the data I need on what is involved in your question, thanks you for patiently responding to my queries.
Now I will work on your answer... you may take a break, for it may be from 10 to 20 minutes before I type in and post the answer. You may return at any time to this question here:
Is (A) the same handset connected to the same phone jack on the Ooma box?
Or (B) are there two handsets connected to two different phone jacks on the Ooma box?
Or (C) is it cabled differently (either one headset, or only one jack, etc. etc.) ?
OK. But is there only one phone handset?
Then the problem with number of rings could either be in the Ooma service configuration, or in the handset... except, if the handset rings a different number of times depending upon whether the call comes through the Line 1 Ooma box, or through the Ooma Linx (which goes where? by the way...), then it is in the Ooma configuration most likely.
(But, where does the Ooma Linx connect to?)
Please tell me:
1. Does the Ooma Linx connect to the handset?
2. Does the Ooma Linx connect to the computer, or the Ooma box (and if so, what jack) ?
The handset takes calls, from both phone lines (somehow.) I presume so, since there's only one phone handset.
Then the Linx is what provides the second line... even if it provides the first line also.
So the handset is not where the one-ring setting is... it cannot be.
So... you have a problem with Ooma settings for the second line's rings, rings settings, or Distinctive Ring (if there is such a thing w/regard to Ooma service).
Ooma service needs reconfiguring ... is your second line what is called 'Instant Second Line' ? if so, there is not mention anywhere of how to configure its settings. I suppose you may either have to configure the Instant Second Line / line 2's settings on the Ooma box, or you will have to configure them by calling Ooma Customer Service (I hope not.)
If you need further help, please let me know.
If this answers your question, please let me know what your rating for my work on this case would be. Thanks.
OK. Second phone number.
Do calls to the first phone number go through the Linx also?
Then you need to configure your Linx to a different ring pattern or a different number of rings before voicemail picks up (or whatever happens after that first ring if you don't pick up).
Or if the Linx has no such settings, then it is a setting for your second number/line, either on your Ooma box's settings, or in your phone line service's configuration for your second number.
Line 2 is also a different phone number, is that correct?
Yes, I am here. And I asked you:
If so, call your phone company. (? with Ooma? that would be Ooma themselves, right?) Ask whether the ring number or number of rings or ring type on the second phone number, can be changed to match that on the first line, or to nearly match it, or to be two or more rings.
I tried to post a response and it has disappeared...
I have passed your refund request to Customer Support at JustAnswer.com, which will handle it.
Thank you for asking your question here at JustAnswer.com.
The second line is a second phone number, correct?
Then its number of rings is in the charge of your phone co.
(? Ooma ?)
I will still pass your refund request on to Customer Support if you don't wish to continue further.
