I'm a Ooma customer.
As a basic feature, we should be able to
1) Disable voicemail
2) Forward to an external voicemail service/number. (Anytime anything would go to Ooma's voicemail it is instead forward to a configured number).
These should be "free" basic service. Why?
Ooma doesn't have to incur any voicemail storage! And because we have enabled this feature, you can actually disable/plan on not having to provide voicemail storage and services. So if 10% of your customers enable one of these choices, you can remove them from you storage/service planning for voicemail. And, its a much friendlier option than having to call Ooma customer support to disable it permanently.
In addition, as a former UVerse customer, UVerse provides the following features:
No Answer Call Forwarding - Send missed calls to another phone number
Busy Call Forwarding - Forward incoming calls to another number when the line is busy
Exclusive Call Forwarding - Forward select calls to another number
I can see these being the "Premier" enhancements to the basic features I outlined above.
In the event of a network outage, (where my Ooma phone can't ring), ALL customers should be able to have their phone forwarded to another phone. I know that this is available as a Premier feature, but I feel this should be a basic feature, and it is for the UVerse customers.
