Never understood people claiming it's hard to search from a phone. I only know it's the first search result because I did a search on my phone.

Its usually less than $5 in fees, in fact its around $3 where I live.

I have both. The telo disappeared from existence for me and only gets rebooted when there is a power outage or I move it. Its worked flawlessly for years.

The Obi box needs to be rebooted a few times a month. Calls sometimes don't go through. Google has changed things from time to time and is again threatening to eliminate free google voice, Obi started ransoming their firmware updates trying to get people to pay fees, a lot of the older cheap Obi boxes are past EOL or about to get there.

Not really the same.

Yes you can. One thing to watch is that older Ooma's had completely free service that's been grandfathered in. I still have a very original Telo that's working great 5-6 years later and I don't have to pay the phone taxes, Ooma does.

The only thing that really breaks in the Telo is the power adapter. I bought a spare 5 years ago and so far haven't needed it.

Good deal it seems to go on sale for ~66-75 bucks now and then. To me it is the easiest way to get inexpensive home phone for the average person. While many people just have cell phones if you have kids or older parents a regular phone is really handy.

Alternatively you can just answer my question and not being a d..k, I posted my question from the phone so it's not easy for me to search right now

Good deal and good system. I've had one of these for several years and it's very reliable (has become better over time), still works great, at low on-going cost. Easily ported over our old land line phone number too. I plugged in a multi-unit handset system base into the ooma and have the handsets spread out around our large house. They act just like a regular phone system. Now I don't have to pay the phone company a stupid high price and I don't have to carry (or listen for and run to) my cell phone. A convenient phone in every major area of the house at all times always charged. Works great for my situation.

Cheaper overall to get an Obihai box and use Google Voice, but it does take some setup. Ooma is ~$5-10/month in taxes and fees whereas GV is free.

I want to replace my older ooma model, can I sell my older unit if it was previously activated? Can a new person activate it? Thank you

I have had this phone box for 4 years and service is great. But it is no longer free. The cost is now up to $7.50 a month in Dallas TX. Also they charge sales tax on the passed thru fees which according to the Texas tax office is wrong. I am looking at Google voice and a $45. viop adapter to get back to free phone service. Ooma's business model needs to change back to free.

I guess it depends on where you are, my experience has been different. For me, Ooma is almost $8/month. I have an Obi202 also and it hasn't had to be rebooted in almost a year, and GV has worked flawlessly.

Anyone looking for this type of service will expect support for 911 calling, which Ooma provides and GV does not. The typical use case, as previously mentioned in the thread, are households with the elderly or young children. There is also something to be said for having a "plug and play" device that anyone can setup and has a single point of contact for support.
