But he didn't say it was tongue in cheek. He said it is "tongue and cheek" -- whatever the heck that is --

Well, I understand tongue and cheek. Back in my younger days when I was first learning about the softer gender, a slightly older girl made it her mission to show me the fine art of kissing. When someone was watching, it was cheek - when we were alone, it was the other. Ahh youth. I think it's wasted on young people. :P

Actually if you keep logs of the calls with bothersome echo and then escalate it to customer support's higher levels they can check into what is causing it. In my case, it was a routing issue and has been successfully corrected. The more information you can give them, the better.

Thanks SouthSound . . .

I have submitted an email requesting the assistance of Tier 3 support, with as much information as I can muster: :cool:

The following is a transcript of an email conversation with an Ooma Customer Service rep . . .

Hi Brandon,

I appreciate your timely response. Initially, the upload QoS was set at 2395. After setting both, upload and download QoS to zero, and rebooting the Telo, the echo is no longer an issue. Thanks for your help . . .

Best regards,
Nat Ray

Dear Nat,

Thank you for contacting Ooma Customer Support.

We're sorry for some confusions and for the inconvenience with regards to the echo that you're hearing when you use your Ooma Telo. Just for clarification since you've already configured the QoS (Quality of Service) on your Ooma Telo, may we know what's the value that you've entered on the upstream and downstream field under the setup page of Ooma ( We recommend you to change the upstream and downstream field both zero "0".

We are looking forward to serve you better.

Echo . . .

Although not on all calls, but most notably and consistently when I call my brother at xxx-xxx-xxxx from my home at xxx-xxx-xxxx. I have configured, and reconfigered QoS with disappointing results. Telo between modem and router, and finally settling on Telo down stream of router for best bandwidth/network performance.
