Love this:
WARNING: Offer may take more than seven days to ship. Sorry if that’s a problem.

We bought this exact model a bit back and have used it without a problem for a few months. In Wisconsin, I think we pay $3.xx per month. It has never disconnected, and 911 is linked to our address. It does not need a computer to be on to run, and we love it. If you’re thinking about it, know that we are among the very happy with this product. (I may even buy one for my mother - that’s how easy it is to use)

I absolutely adore my Ooma and Ooma service.

The Ooma VOIP systems work wonderfully. I mainly use mine for faxing with work and have no problems. I love it. I have had mine for over a year now.

Picked one up last time it was on Woot - LOVE IT. My number was ported in 8 days and no more phone bill (except 3 bucks a month for taxes).

One caveat: If you have a few auxiliary cordless phones that feed off one base, you may get some static unless they’re DECT (the base won’t have static, just the auxiliary phones).

Ordered this last time around… It is GREAT. Switched from Skype and haven’t looked back. Works with my fax too. Zero complaints.

I use Skype as my home phone, would this be suggested over Skype?

I don’t have a lot of money and Skype is so cheap compared to standard phone service, but some of the downsides nag at the back of my mind. Lack of 911 is one of the big ones.

In the long run, this seems like the better deal, but I like hearing from others.

Edit: Guy above me likes it over Skype. Good to know :smiley:

Anyone else? And any reasons why that I might not have thought of?

Haha i guess techguy has taken over beating nightghost to the first product website post

In for 1. Wondered about porting my #, here’s how it works:

Woot’s stepped up it’s game recently with this and the Viewsonic G-Tablet for $279 new. Wooooooot!!!

Can you hear me now? Good… now get this and get the heck away from that dinosaur you call a traditional land-line.

So you have to have a high speed internet connection and a membership in order to own this thing?

How much are the memberships?

You can also take it with you on vacation plug internet into it then into the Hotel Phone and you have you HOME phone anyplace.

Got this in similar Woot deal 6 months ago, it is GREAT - easy switch from Ver1z0n, ported number, costs <4 month - always works and once you set it up you never think about it again.
