Did not realize when I signed up that my legal name John would be used for outbound caller ID .
When I called to get it changed they wanted to charge $20 what a ripoff. Won't pay that so I had to block the outbound caller ID. If the instructions would have clearly stated this I would have used BOB.
Up until now everything has been fantastic.

I recommend that you call Customer Support and have them change your forum ID to something else.
You have effectively published your phone number on the internet since this is a public forum.

530...., it does cost money for Ooma to provision your callerid. I've heard something like $10 or more to 3rd party many years ago so it must cost at least that today plus Ooma has to build in some cost buffer for processing, support overhead etc.
