Heard that after Apple's cut, there are also 3rd party development and licensing fees to pay so Ooma makes little to begin with. Pile on testing, support, and overhead, maybe no money to be made so far.

As I read through the instructions that came with the unit, the stuff here and on the internet, I'm not getting a very good feeling for this VOIP system.

I believe I just read that the Bluetooth adapter that came with my unit requires the premier subscription to work - huh? Wow, what a way to lock people in to paying a yearly rate. What does one have to do with the other? I hope I was dreaming or something when I read that.

So now that I have activated my account (not working now - it did initially), I'll need to configure my bluetooth adapter and hope that it works at which point I'd need to sign on to the yearly subscription to continue to use the bluetooth capability, and then I'd have to hope that I can get a $10 mobile app to work in 15 minutes. Wow, quite a slalom course ahead of me. We're not doing so well right out of the gate, either. Things will have to work perfectly to justify the cost or it looks like Ooma with be going back to be sold as another refurbished unit on Woot.
