I just purchased the telo and was wondering about number porting. I would eventually like to port my number if all goes well. My questions is can i activate the ooma telo first for a while to make sure i want to keep the service before i port my number later? or do i have to port my number when i activate.
Many of us activated our ooma system without connecting (integrating) a landline. What this means is that you will get a new number from ooma for your Telo. Then, when you are happy with the quality, just complete the request for porting. When the number ports, you can choose to keep the ooma number as a second number on the Telo (requires Premier) or let it go. In the testing period, you will be making all your calls on the Telo so you will get a good idea of what it will be like after porting.
And lest I forget, welcome to ooma!

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
