For Ooma Telo Beta Testers, the $59 fee is waived, for everyone else, it is not.Groundhound wrote:Dennis,Dennis P wrote:This is correct.

The a la carte option also includes other voicemail options such as voicemail forwarding, call screening, send-to-voicemail and do not disturb.WayneDsr wrote:I know it's all a bit confusing right now, but I think for a new Telo customer, after the 60 day Premier trial is over and you don't purchase, you get NO voicemail. I hope I'm wrong, but I think this is correct. It is a new tier level, Telo Basic.
For existing Ooma customers upgrading to Ooma Telo, you can "move" your current service level over to the new hardware. So if you have Ooma Core now, you'll have Ooma Core on your Telo.
For existing customers who transfer their Ooma Core account to a new Telo, what is the status of their old Hub afterwords? Can they transfer it to someone else for the $59 fee? If so, what T&C policy with respect to VM will apply to that reactivated Hub?
Not yet, but coming according to the press release in March: https://www.ooma.com/media/press-releas ... experienceClub Chapin wrote:With Google Voice, is there a way to set the Telo to display my GV number in Caller ID for outgoing calls?
This will be a Premier feature, though.
Not yet - but it will be a feature of Google Voice Extensions (which will require Premier service). It also gives you the option of picking up voicemail by just touching the ooma voicemail button. From a blog entry by Dennis Peng:Club Chapin wrote:With Google Voice, is there a way to set the Telo to display my GV number in Caller ID for outgoing calls?
Great stuff coming! I can hardly wait as I'm a very positive GV user.With ooma Premier’s Google Voice Extensions, we can automatically show your Google Voice caller-ID when you make a call, no need to use the web site or call into Google Voice just to do that. You can also check your Google Voice messages with a touch of a button, just like using an answering machine. And with ooma, you don’t need to pick up your phone to hear who is calling. We’ll play the announcement and message over the speaker for you – pick up the phone only if you really want to answer. Finally, if you don’t want to go through the hassle of switching to yet another new phone number, use your existing ooma number (or port your number to ooma) and we’ll forward it to Google Voice.

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
My "Kensington WiFi Finder Plus" detects a Bluetooth signal when I hold it near the Telo. That may not be significant since it does not detect a bluetooth signal when held near my cell phone when it is in bluetooth discover mode.Mike_TV wrote:Really curious as to how they will add/activate the Bluetooth connectivity to the Telo. Is it already built in or will a Telo user have to buy a Bluetooth USB dongle to plug into the open USB port on the back of the Telo.
