  • Rumors have already started that Ooma was thinking about shutting down. These rumors are not true so please catch a deep breath and push out a sigh of relief for that one. Customers are trying to rech out to Ooma but their office seems to be closed Voicemail greetings are being heard instead of people picking up the phone. The inbox of the voicemail is already beginning to become full. Some Ooma customers have gotten through to representatives and got a few answers about the service being down. The Ooma reps let customers know that they are aware of the service problem and it will be up and running within the next few hours. The hub in the house-hold will automatically turn its service back on.

    Also, on a side note, faxing has been working just fine for me on the Ooma Telo. You just have to dial *99, wait a couple seconds and then type in the fax number.

  • I was so happy with the Ooma Telo I purchased a unit for my parents who live out in South Carolina! They were using MagicJack for the past year and half. Every time I spoke with them I always heard this clicking sound and the quality was just horrible. I figured it would just be an early Christmas present That is how bad they needed a better quality VOIP service.

    Ooma also gives you the option to port your existing number for a fee. This is a one time fee and costs $39.99. I opted for this option when I purchased my parents the Ooma device. Ooma assured me I’d be able to port their MagicJack number over. However, you need to be careful with this because your current phone provider (in my parents case, MagicJack) may also charge a fee to port your number away from them! This I did not know, and MagicJack charges $30. So in total, I paid $70 to port my parents number to Ooma! That I did not expect! Since I was purchasing this as a gift, I figured it was only necessary. Plus, I didn’t want to make them feel bad so I just paid for it.

    Like other services of its kind, ooma uses a base station to make all of its connections. Called the ooma Hub, this base station is where the Ethernet and phone jacks are located, as well as where the user interface takes place. Using the large backlit buttons, the user can check voicemail, make conference calls (requires ooma Premier subscription) and manage features such as call forwarding and forwarding to voicemail. A speaker that plays your voicemails and allows interaction with the device is located next to the buttons. Interestingly, the speaker and buttons are the only way to interact with ooma Hub - there is no display, so if you want to use call-waiting you'll have to have a handset that supports that feature.

As for quality, I've been an Ooma user for nearly four years and couldn't be more satisfied. Even with the Telo installed "behind" my router (rather than in front, which is the recommended setup), call quality is much better than I ever got from Vonage. As for Ooma's customer service, I can't really comment because I've never had cause to use it. Everything just works.
