That's great news. Could someone from Ooma forum confirm this info. I have hear of some CS reps giving out wrong info in the past. That's why my first stop is the forum when I run into problems.

Why not just make a tablet handset app & bluetooth / wifi tethering?

Bobby B, we really need a solution here!

I've begun converting clients to Ooma and I have three installs coming up. They all need handsets for a second line and none are available. Can we get some sort of credit to the minutes for the Ooma app users as a stop gap measure? The 250 included with Premier won't suffice, but a 1000 minutes per month until the HD2 Handset is available might work for them. Even still, all three of these clients want Premier service with incoming on a second number to the Telo handset, so the Ooma app isn't going to help there. Might lose these sales as a result.

The ROI would probably turn them off of the product when compared with other options. I would find it strange to spend $400 and $28 a month to achieve the same capability that was originally quoted at $260 and $14 a month.

We're still targeting for Fall of this year for the HD2 handset release.
