Question on Telo Handset & New Handset Fall.2012?

Post by rennman10 » Thu Jul 05, 2012 4:32 pm

I have been happily Ooma-ing for several years. Mostly great experience.

I didn't originally purchase a handset but now I'd like to because I need to place the handset where there isn't a phone jack (if I had a phone jack I'd be able to buy any vendors wireless phone).

How do I tell if my Telo unit is one of the ones that is able to communicate with the Telo Handset? I get the idea that the older units can't - is that true?

I see that a new handset will be available at the end of this year. Is it worth waiting for?

It's doesn't appear that there are many of the older Telo Handsets available. I can find a few that are 100-0200-300 and 100-0200-301. Anyone know if there are any important fixes in what I am guessing is the newer one (eg. the 301).

I don't want to buy a Telo Handset 100-0200-300 if I should opt for the 100-0200-301 or wait for the new one. I certainly don't want to do either if my unit won't support the handset. :!:

Many thanks for help

Hi,

If all you need is to have more than one phone handset, a Telo handset is not required. You can use a two-unit phone set such as http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6876101349 and it should work just fine.

All Telo bases support the Telo handset.
The original Telo handset appears to be out of production.
I've seen them on eBay for inflated prices.
At this point I would wait for the new handset.
