leaving ooma

Post by big al » Tue Mar 26, 2013 5:51 pm

Sadly after one year I have to leave ooma. The concept is good but it just hasn't worked out for me. I am sure that it
works very well for some people but it seems like I always had some little problem. There are times it works perfectly,
and other times not. I suspect that it is fluctuations in my internet but every time i tested it it was fine.
As a result i have a one year old telo with wireless adapter for sale. If anyone is interested you can contact me here.

You might contact Ooma support, if you haven't already. They're pretty sharp when it comes to working out problems.

sorry to hear that you've decided to go. :(

Looking at your posts, seems like you don't have any quality issues anymore but your outgoing callerid is still an issue?

The market for a used Telo system is soft, due in part to the fact that Ooma will charge a reactivation fee of almost $80. Adding a warranty for a new system further limits the price. My suggestion: Keep the system and delete Premier service. Use it as much as possible for long distance, etc. You should be able to save $60 per year on your phone bill.
