Exactly right. I've had many dropped calls to cells, but the one call that dropped for me was to a landline. Not too bad for almost a year.

I hate to break the string users that report no-dropped-calls, but it seems my experience is probably closer to the person that started this thread. They seem to be more within my local calling area, but then, I don't make many LD calls. I don't know whether it is the fault of my IP, Cox, or something that ooma can correct, but if I was a heavy user, the dropped call rate would be a problem for me.

Just to maybe provide another data point on this - I had my first dropped call today on my hub (using since 3/09). I was talking to someone in my local calling area who has TW digital phone. We were talking and then silence. I didn't get a dial tone, waited about 10 seconds, hung up and dialed again. After that, no problem. I suppose it could have been TW. Don't know.

My folks have dropped calls everyday. The have basic ATT dry loop. They live in Connecticut. Also, when they call me, the Multi Ring does not forward the call to my cell as it does with non ooma callers.
