The caller does not have to hit # in order to activate the "ooma girl." If none of you are hearing it, that must mean there's a way to disable it. BTW, if someone calls and decides not to leave a message, the ooma girl says, "I did not hear you, thank you for using the ooma broadband answering machine, goodbye." This is as irritating as car dealers when they put that metal plaque on the trunk of your car identifying the dealership.

I don't know what I did, but I have never heard it. From what you are saying, I am very glad I am not hearing it because it would annoy me as well.

Could this be related to firmware version on the Hub?

Cheers,
Scott

Ooh, so there's a way to update the firmware? I was unaware of that so maybe there's hope. I'll have to root around here to find out how to do it. Thanks for the tip.

I don't know if we have any control or visibility into that, but I have read somewhere on this forum about it. Good luck searching for it, and let us know what you find.

Cheers,

I found out that upgrades are automatically pushed though. I've e-mailed Bobby to see if there's anything that can be done. Kinda make me regret "upgrading" to their Enhanced Voicemail plan.

I agree... this is very undesirable behavior and should be removed for people paying for premium service. Like the metal plate car dealers put on your new car AND the stupid ads you are forced to watch before a movie at the theaters... we pay for the service... we shouldn't be giving ooma free advertising. Just my $.02

Just my 2 cents, but with Free local calling, FREE long distance, FREE Call Waiting, FREE Caller ID, FREE BASIC VOICEMAIL and $99 a year for ALL THE EXTRAS I'm ok with an ooma ad in a very unobtrusive place!

That won't be true for most people. I agree with Wilsonium. It's appropriate for the no monthly fee service, inappropriate for those paying subscription fees. You can gripe about FREEness ($99/yr isn't free in my book) as much as you want, annoying people and pissing people off is going to keep people away. Look at the DVR market and the most common cited reason people love their DVR. It isn't watching shows when you want. It isn't the guide features. It isn't the time shifting. It's the easy of skipping commercials. We are overharrassed in this nation and people have hit their tolerance threshold.
