I've had OOMA for a few years now 4-5? who knows. Anyway, the only costs that I recall are for the unit itself and about a $40 optional cost if you want to keep your existing number. The call quality is very good, no complaints there. And service has been very reliable. Works as well as a regular phone. However, it is tied directly to your internet, so if that goes down, you lose phone service. You can get a 2 input / 1 output converter to put into your existing phone jack. This will allow you to use OOMA across all the phones in your house using the existing wires in the wall. Don't recall exactly which line goes where, but it works well. If you really want to know, I'll post something when I get home. The only downside is that I'm not a fan of the answering machine. I don't recall exactly what bothers me, something like it doesn't give the time/date of call (or something else, I get confused between cell phone issues and OOMA issues) and I don't like the touch surface buttons, but that's nit-picky. A good investment when compared to paying for phone service.
OOma is the phorum's new USB scale, but it is wonderfully useful. I went the premium route, ported my home number, and the blacklist is wonderful, AND the 'email voicemails' is also great. With the old answering machine the kids would always delete important messages. Now I just email them to the person who was supposed to get them as plain 'old mp3 files. Stellar!
You all should really consider using OOMA if you have cable or DSL Internet service. OOMA is even better than the cable company's own phone services and it is free after you buy the box. You'll never get another phone bill. A year ago it cost $209 on Amazon. In most cases you can transfer your existing number over for a small fee. I transferred mine from Verizon without trouble. You get voice mail (that you can also check on the Internet), caller ID and all the features you are used to. Someone mentioned it here about a year ago and I bought one. It paid for itself in less than 3 months and we've been phone bill free ever since. I figure we've saved over $500 so far. It works flawlessly except the few times that our Internet service went out. Even then calls still go to voicemail. One of my favorite things about OOMA is that it uses all your existing phones and wiring. You just disconnect your wiring where it comes in, plug the OOMA into a wall jack, and all your phones, answering machines, faxes, etc. just work. OOMA has a premium service that gives you even more capabilities but the free service works great for me. I highly recommend OOMA.
I actually love Ooma. I've been using them for several years. No complaints. Excellent quality. Wonderful features and flexibility.
I strongly recommend Ooma for all of your VOIP activity. Ooma delivers an excellent software platform with great sound quality, high reliability at an outstanding price price. I really like the email transcripts from inbound voice mail, multi factor spam filtering, included Canada calling and interface with my Panasonic KX-T wireless phones. Low entry and monthly cost. A great value.
