Re: [Ooma] How good is Ooma? By all accounts Ooma quality is good....
As was said, to get the features that are considered basic on many/most other VoIP providers, you have to pay an extra $ 10.00 a month on Ooma.
And their monthly taxes and fees are about $ 3.50 these days.
So that is $ 13.50 a month (on top of paying $ 200.00 for a Ooma device but you have that already).
Now, for $ 13.50 a month I could do well with folks like CallCentric or Voip.MS or VOIPo, etc.
Let's say you don't pay the extra $ 10.00 a month for the "Premier" services.
I'd rather pay $ 7.71 a month for full-featured service on VOIPo (that's a 24 month plan including taxes/fees) than pay $ 3.50 a month for the Ooma basic-level service.
Now, of course in your particular situation, the calculus may be different, because you have an Ooma box already in hand, so that's no longer a Schrodinger cat issue.
One of my clients got Ooma last year. He ported his number from Verizon.
He likes it well enough, but whenever he calls my office (into my Verizon POTS business line) his call shows up as "Ooma Inc".
I don't know if it's a general problem or not....
