I recently moved from Alabama to Missouri. I would like to have a "local" phone number with the appropriate area code. Is there a way to change my area code?

Thank you,
dv

I guess there's nothing new with OOMA ... every stick of butter, every napkin costs extra. So much for "getting rid of phone charges".

There is cost associated with number change so ooma has to recover that somehow.

A company charging $30, $40 or even more per month can afford to eat this cost and not charge you.

Even Google Voice charges $10 for number change (they don't even have outgoing callerid name; costs money to revise this).

Did you see SouthSound's alternative option using Google Voice (right below the $19.99 cost post)?

doesn't matter anyway, neither google nor OOMA can get any new phone numbers with 573 area code. Seems odd that a city of 1,000,000+ can find phone numbers, but a city area with 100,000 can't.

oh, well
