Question: The USB / Bluetooth dongle that OOMA sells looks suspisciously similar to the one I purchased for the USB port in my notebook. Can I use that USB dongle instead or is the OOMA version a bluetooth USB adapter/dongle specially formulated for use in the Telo Hub?

Seriously, some time ago ooma created code to check the digital signature of their dongle. To my understanding, the reason for this is to eliminate all the support headaches that would come with using unsupported BT dongles.

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
It is true. Only use the OOMA bluetooth adapter. All others will give problems.
Also, my cheap Motorola H500's that work with my iPhone don't work with OOMA bluetooth. Kind of weird as these old BT headsets have worked with every bluetooth enabled phone I've ever had.
Thankfully, my higher end Plantronics Discovery 975 bluetooth headset works well.
My iPhone works fine too. Had to turn bluetooth on and off a couple of times to make it work.
Moral of the story - READ the compatiblity list.
You mileage may vary, as I do not use the features much, but thought I would give it a try since it was laying around.
