The Instant Second Line gives you a second phone line at the same convenient number without the hassle or cost of physically installing a second line. In order to take advantage of this feature, you will need to install at least one Ooma Scout device in a standard phone jack.
Placing calls using the Instant Second Line
To make a call when somebody else in your house is on the phone, simply pick up a phone connected to a different Ooma device and you will hear the signature Ooma dialtone. If you are on the first line and want to make a second call, simply press the other line button (the light should be off) or press the flash key on your phone. You should hear the signature dialtone on the new line, indicating that the Instant Second Line is available.
Answering calls on the Instant Second Line
If a second call comes in when somebody else in your house is on the phone, you will hear the call-waiting signal and all the other phones in the house will ring. If you are already on the phone, you can press the other line button (it should be blinking rapidly) or press the flash key on your phone. If someone else in the house wants to answer the call, they simply need to pick up a ringing phone connected to a different Ooma device.
Alternating between phone lines
To alternate between two lines, simply press down on the line button of the call you wish to join (it should be blinking red) and the current call will automatically be placed on hold. Alternatively, press the flash key on your phone to alternate between phone lines.
Placing calls on hold
To place a call on hold, simply press the button for the line you are on (the light should be solid red). Please note that if both lines are in use, you cannot place both calls on hold.
You can initiate a three-way conference call in a number of ways. Once you have two parties on the line, simply press down both lines at once on any Ooma device, and voila! You’ve got yourself a three-way! Please note that if you hang up the phone during a conference call, both lines will be disconnected. Alternatively, you can break the three-way into two separate calls by pressing on either line button on an Ooma device. This will automatically place the other call on hold.
Using the Instant Second Line using a cordless phone
If you wish to make or take a second call when someone else is on the phone, simply pick up a phone connected to a different Ooma device and you will automatically get a new Ooma dialtone . You can also join the call in progress by pressing the flash key on your phone.
