You can by the hub for $50 less RETAIL. Ooma cannot control what resellers are selling it for, but they can establish retail prices and they have per your formula already. Ooma charges $200 for the Hub, $70 for the Scout, and $250 for the Hub + Scout - $20 combo discount. That is what you have been asking for and they are providing it already.Vtec525 wrote:Sell the HUB seperately at a REDUCED cost to draw more customers.
The upcoming TELO will not require you do buy anything more than the bare minimum. Which is already per your formula.
What more can Ooma do besides simply reducing prices?
You say you want separation of product for choices, but I really think you want an MJ price model. Ooma could do that, but they'd be forced to start charging service fees. That isn't their market, but maybe someday it will be.
I find it interesting you think I am the brick wall in this conversation when you aren't reading the information people have been providing.
Hub Retail = $200
Scout Retail = $70
Hub + Scout = $250 less $20 combo discount
Not happy? What would make you happy? 20% cheaper? 40% cheaper? 80%? FREE?
Do you mandate all companies provide you this amount of options, such as your automotive companies? I bet they love you when you walk onto the sales floor. Vtec525, "I want options'... Sales person, "Here's our chinese menu", Vtec525, "I want more options and at far lower prices than you have listed", Sales person, "We have more options than any other car company and our prices are already competitive with the region", Vtec525, "I still want more options and can you throw in a the car for 80% off the scrap value of the car?"
Do you ask that Microsoft do the same with Windows? Stand in line, the EU is ahead of you.
I agree and wonder why you didn't buy Magic Jack since you're convinced it is right for you, and Ooma is flawed to failure. I am curious, did you buy an Ooma so you could gain access to post on this forum. Do you work for Magic Jack?Vtec525 wrote: "Like always, which one of these is better will depend on contexts, as each has pros and cons. But taking the cost factor into account, Magic Jack seems to be the best bet, since the hardware is quite cheap and it offers free calls to all phones, landline or mobile, for free. But if you don't want to remain attached to your computer, better look in ooma's direction. Still though, even with some more features, the high price will be somewhat deterring. "
