Word of caution from banjolaya on post #77:
Quote from banjolaya View Post :
Word of caution: Before you buy OOMA go to pingtest.net and test your packet loss, ping and jitter.
If you have any packet loss - this might not be for you.
If you have high ping - OOMA might not be for you.
If your jitter is greater than 5 - this is definitely not for you.
There are multiple postings online about OOMA and jitter. The problem comes and goes. Some say it's your IP provider's fault (faulty lines leading to your home), IP provider customer service says - It's not us, it's your modem. You can google this issue and you'll find that some people had real problems with it (myself included).

Yeah, I hate it too when people bring up cheaper, equivalent solutions to a deal. I should just be able to buy the more expensive one and find out later I could have bought the same thing for half price. I like that " doh, I could have had a v8" moment...

I've had both for some time, including beta testing oomas products. Excepting a little more setup on the obi units (easy if you can follow directions) and having to sign up separately for e911 I see no operational difference but quite a cost difference.

It's not trolling or thread crapping to offer up cheaper options. When my ooma dies I'm replacing it with another obi unit.
Actually Obi as a hardware device is a lot more powerful than Ooma.

Obi device offer a lot of powerful features like Auto Attendant (which you can setup your own Interactive response system), Call bridging, etc. AutoAttendant (AA)/Interactive Voice Response (IVR) make the Obi a bit more dynamic for eg. callback for cheap/free call while away from home, etc. And you can record your own AA message. Setting up your auto response system to do things like asking for pass code. And Press "1" to ...., Press "2" to......, etc.
Do google search and look at the Obi Admin Guide for more info.

nettalk stock has been at 8 cents/share for the past couple months. it's going to file bankruptcy soon.

i just wonder how people still pay for this device when you actually have to pay tax + fee every month. it's not free. it's like $5-$7/month on tax & 911 fee. how people still pay for this device monthly on tax + fees is beyond me.
How is Ooma related to nettalk?

So looking at the device it looks like it has it's own integrated answering machine? Can that be disabled? Just to keep things simple would rather just use the one on the current phone.

I have set Ooma to answer after say 10 rings, where as I have set my phone's answering machine to answer after 4 rings. You can't disable Ooma voicemail yourself. But if you contact Ooma Customer Support, they can disable it on a permenant basis. Once disabled, Ooma voicemail can't be re-enabled.

Anyone know if I bought an Ooma two years ago but didn't activate it, will it charge taxes if I activate it now?

I purchased this Ooma system off Amazon for $150 about two weeks ago. I wish I would have gotten in on this deal. This system is amazing to me. I have had Vonage before and it was good but when I loved out into the country where there is only DSL I switched over to Centurylink. After three months of their phone service, I canceled the home phone. The quality of the phone calls no mater which jack used was so bad it was untolerable. I would often get my cell phone and call people back that called me or use it to make calls so we just went without a home phone for a year or two.

No one really likes going without a home phone. It's just nice to have but everyone loves to save money. Ooma gives me the best quality service I have had to date. Crystal clear on slow DSL internet and loaded with features. I will likely cancel the premium trial and go with the free + tax basic plan which I anticipate changing little how i use this service.

I have been screaming Ooma from the roof tops to all my friends for the past week! It's nice to be able to fax from my all-in-one again as that need popped up many times and using a free online faxing service can be unreliable.

Thanks Jason

Directly from Ooma official forum.

"For new activations, no matter what kind of device, now, Ooma requires monthly taxes (Regulatory Recovery Fees)."


Pretty much Ooma is getting rid of "free/no fee" user by...
1) grandfather plan is tied to the device. So any change of hardware will lose the no tax/no fee plan. Or the discounted Premier plan.
2) Any new activation, Ooma required monthly taxes. Doesn't matter if it is Ooma Core or some very old version of Ooma that never been activated.
3) Once the old Ooma is deactivated, when you reactivate the device, it is count as "new activation" which 2) apply plus they will charge a reactivation fee ($80). Meaning, Ooma required monthly taxes when you reactivate something like an deactivated used Ooma Core.
4) Even if you activate your Ooma Core that has no taxes/fee, if you don't use it for certain period of time, they will deactivate your account. When you reactivate your account/device, it will count as device reactivation which require reactivation fee and lose the grandfather plan.
