We have the same hopes. Especially for the scout like device and a Telo handset with a headset jack.cmeisel wrote:Thanks for all the great feedback. I was hoping for somehing like we tried model xyz and it works.
There is a Philips DECT 6.0 HD and I might try it and report back. I have also not given up hope that ooma will either develop a new handset (and scout type device please) or approach other vendors (Panasonic, vtech, etc) to add some ooma telo compatibility. This could be a win-win for ooma and a partner.

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
My Telo Handsets are not great (terrible charging station) but I would still use and buy them if I could.
I just need a list of compatible wireless phone systems to expand my system. It's been hell since I switched. Between the red light flashing and lack of extensions with intercom, no one has been able to reach me for weeks.
It appears that you're not looking for HD compatible phones, in which case any wired or wireless phone system will work. Just plug it into the back of the Telo in the port marked "Phone".hanna wrote: My Telo Handsets are not great (terrible charging station) but I would still use and buy them if I could.

Here's a 5 handset system: http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-KX-TG65 ... 378&sr=8-3 for around $120.
Just plug the base in to the Telo and turn off the answering machine on the base.
And you can use them alongside your existing 2 Telo handsets and can make or receive two simultaneous calls - one on a Telo handset and one on a Panasonic handset or a call on each Telo handset. And you can use the intercom functionality of the Telo like murphy mentioned or just use the intercom on the Panasonic system.
DECT Cordless Handset---but pricey at $400. New with Ooma and first time here. My Thompson desk-set has a good sound but none of its many features work nor does its companion cordless. I did not see the entry that Hanna made 10/30/10 until making my entry. I am a bit confused about the 2 Telo and the 5 Panasonic from Amazon---maybe for a business. I just need a good sound on a cordless with speaker-phone, redial and 20 or so speed dial numbers. What would be the best for me, if anyone has a suggestion? Thanks... Layna
That Netgear phone is a SIP phone and won't work with Ooma. But, $400? Man!
Check this one out and see if it will work for you. This one plugs into a regular phone jack (your Ooma phone port) and should be a good phone if you are on the phone a lot.
Could you tell me if any of these will work with my Ooma device?
Also, do you know if any of the Bluetooth phones work with Ooma?
Thanks so much!!
Basically any of the phones you listed would work. It all depends on what brand and what functions you like.
A lot of people have said that Panasonic DECT 6.0 phones are best but you may end up with other brands just because of pricing.
Here is a good place to take a look at what functions you like: http://telephones.att.com/att/index.cfm ... s/dect-60/
If you do end up wanting to buy from the att site, let me know via private message, I can get you an updated discount code to put in.

We raided a few local retail stores for corded phones and tested them to see if they were HD Voice compatible. Here are a few that tested OK:
Panasonic KX-TS105(W or B)
Panasonic KX-TS208(W or B)
Panasonic KX-TS3282(W or B)
These corded phones DID NOT pass our HD Voice tests:
Polycon SE-225 Soundoint Pro
