I am an ooma premier customer and have been for over a year. Yes it may be a security problem with the porting database but the lack of features like wildcard blacklists makes me question this companies honesty. Being able to ban calls that start with "V0" on my caller ID would easily fix my problem. After a year I'm still getting calls to lower my credit card interest rates. I received THREE in the past 24 hours. I like the 911 notification, I like the voice mail going to my email accounts. There are lots of good features with Ooma. But this issue stinks up the entire product and ruins it.lbmofo wrote:Hollywood, my guess is that crooks have access to the industry porting database. This problem is likely happening to every landline ported number (newly ported in Comcast voice customer for example); I am guessing this because I had a Comcast voice friend who got hit with some of the same spammers that hit Ooma accounts that I had visibility to. If my guess is correct, there isn't anything Ooma can do.
Verizon recently offered me a cellular "home" line and I may switch to it. Since it is basically a desktop cell phone I can legally punch any callers in the nuts that dare spam it. With the Ooma I have no options.
My problems started after I ported my number as well. It's been over a year and I've seen no progress. Thanks for all the VOIP spam!
