You were doing it wrong.
Actually I think Bright House just preferred I use there phone service.Big Grin A ping test Ooma said do, said there was A problem, Bright House said there wasn't.
Any way , I just needed A service that was dependable. Bright house gives me phone and 10 Meg, broadband for $50.00, bundled. Plus I didn't have to pay to port the same number I've had for 15 years.
For me there was A difference in the quality of Ooma and what I have with Bright House.. It's minimal and may not matter if your on A tight budget.

Same here. Cleared line two and it Econoship option magically showed up.
Repped and big thanks to you for the helpful tip. Repped the OP and the deal (as it is customary), not that OP needs any new reps as he has quite a few already...
glad it worked for you too. I got the tip from a previous TD SD and I'm happy to pass it along!

I've had grandfathered (no tax/fess) Ooma for about 4 years. It has worked flawlessly.
This is a stupid cheap price.
Just do it.

I'm looking at either the Ooma or Obi. The only reason I maintain a landline is to send and receive the occasional fax (no more than a few a month, really). Does anyone know how well either device work in this regard?

Will this support a land line based home security system?

Thanks for the info, I was unaware of this, I know this wasn't always the case as they sent out emails when Telo was first released to transfer us w/o fees. I guess I am keeping the core.

I just bought one from Amazon for $119 and they would not price match TD's price of $89, so I'll be returning it to Amazon.

I've been an OOMA customer for about two years now.

During that time, OOMA's modem crapped out a couple of times, requiring a reset (unplug then plug), there was an outage for about 4 hours one day, and once in a while I get some weird type of connection upon receiving a call. Other than that, the call quality is fantastic, and overall its an extremely reliable service.

This month I was charged $4.66, which is my current monthly rate (basically just paying for taxes), I live in NJ BTW.

I'm thinking about hopping on this deal. Some complaints about OOMA's modem not lasting too long, so it may be a good idea to have one as a backup.

Just beware, dropping your current phone service (if its provided by your cable company) may not get you the savings you think. I was with Verizon FiOS when I switched to OOMA, and when I called to cancel my FiOS phone, they told me all I would save is $5 monthly. I had to threaten to switch ISP's to get a better rate without phone. I eventually got a $15 savings. In the end, switching may not save you a lot, but the up side, you can switch ISP's without worrying about porting an old number or getting a new one, Just simply plug your OOMA modem in and you're set.

Yeah, NYC is still $3.76 (up from $3.72)... but considering the other options... this is about the best long term paid solution you can get with e911... There's always free cell phone options Safelink Wireless and Assurance Wireless.. assurance gets you sprint's virgin mobile (terrible in my part of nyc at the moment) and Safelink is either AT&T, Verizon (VZ and Sprint are phone specific on safelink/tracfone vendor).

Anywho, compared to bundled plans, and competitors this usually is the best deal.. if you live in a high phone tax state like Tennessee or California, its up to YOU to start fighting that and/or choose free options when you can... I don't blame you.. in these cases Ooma might not be the best option... However, look around, these taxes are not JUST associated w/ ooma, it's industry-wide.. take a look at incumbent provider's rates... if Ooma is more, then you can complain to Ooma Customer service before you buy.. if it's less.. well, take a hint..

Porting a long-time phone number can be a hassle with some incumbents especially if you MOVE... sometimes there are "RULES" with certain providers and their E911 address reporting systems that won't allow you to keep a number in a certain area code, which seems antiquated given the evolution of telecom these days.

For me, Ooma saves ~$15 a month over fios bundle.. seems about the same for the cableco too. IMO, all landlines are gonna take a $5 hit come 2013 whether you like it or not.. at least Ooma will probably try to phase it in gradually and be cheaper than the competition.. but feel free to keep checking, month to month and calculate whether it's still a good deal. Remember, it's not a contract.. just a prepaid free service that passes on taxes/fees (and a small amount of overhead as a % of the overall fee).

BTW, Forum support is usually top notch..

Just ditch the landline then and use internet fax! Some are free some are just pennies a fax. You get a n800 number and can access the fax from anywhere. I send faxes from my email! I get faxes and can send them on my ipad no matter where I am. Just google there are several services. The ipad has a fax app woot

$30 for the device on sale, $40 at regular price. Plugs into your router and you can plug a traditional phone into the device. Works with Google Voice or callcentric for free calls. No guarantee Google Voice's free outgoing calls will continue for 2013 though.

And sooo much better than OOMA!
