Yes, definitely, this would be tremendously helpful and very much needed. This was one of the main reasons why I almost didn't move from Vonage (b/c they have the softphone interface).

Would love to be a beta tester if ever you folks develop a softphone app for desktops/laptops.

thank you,

If you don't care about your outbound caller ID, the easiest solution I know of is Google Voice. Choose the number on the computer, it calls your Ooma number, you answer and it's ringing the number you called.

I dial just about all my outbound calls this way.

gmail also has a dialer. I've used it several times and it works great

Computer dialing is one thing - but a SIP (Softphone) client would be GREAT. I could use it from home, office, etc. with a USB or even bluetooth headset. My laptop could look just like another phone on my ooma setup.....I would live that.

There are several 'free' soft-clients that would only need a specific a Codec/adapter to allow this to work. ooma would have to provide some additional configuration information, but this would allow anyone to use their laptop, or another computer to act as if they were calling from their home.

Personally, I need a MacOS client that I could use. Happy to be a beta tester for you.
