I got ooma setup in 20 minutes last night, just as advertised. All I can say thus far is that I love it. I called ooma support today to request to have our current landline number ported to ooma. They sent over a Letter of Agreement for me to fill out so ooma can have the number ported from Time Warner and in 3 weeks, I should be able to able to cancel Time Warner phone service.
At $250 for the ooma hub, in ~5 months, ooma will have paid for itself. If ooma’s around for 6 months after that, I’ll call this a pretty damn good deal.
The things that I like most thus far are:
- simple design
- easy to use
- simple to setup
- responsive/fast customer service
- free phone service
- the ooma “lounge” where you can configure services and check voicemail from anywhere
So far, I’m really like me some ooma. The $40/month we’ll be saving on phone service is going, yep, you guessed it, straight to the student loan.
