With that said, I think ooma is a service worth supporting. All companies require sales growth to continue to refine their product and at the very least stay in business.
If you like the service, I highly recommend you recommend the service to your friends and family. The holiday's are right around the corner. I think ooma would make a perfect gift for someone on your list.
You have probably already invested in the ooma hardware and maybe even signed up for the premium service (I did). The best way to get the most out of this system is to help them stick around.

I had the same idea... but I think I will wait a little to see how this Telo/handset thing turns out!nrs wrote:I have planned for telo and handset as gift to one of my family member. Hope the handset isues will be ironed out before that.
I wish the people running ooma stop rushing products to the "stores", before it is ready/ without proper testings!
We need to give them time. They stated that they will be coming out with a referral program next week. As their customer base grows and they are able to build out their Business Plan, I believe ooma will be able to do just what you are asking. We need to just give them some time.
I am a self confessed technology junky and faster is most of the time, the way I like. Even if that means lots of bug fixes. They should not try to make people like me happy at the expense of their long term future.
ooma is trying to replace a product that has been traditionally very stable. I have alway just lifted up my phone and it worked. It's not like using Windows and knowing it's going to crash once and a while, so I have to save a lot.
I am about to call support and have them close my tickets.
SO, that said, I am now giving my old Hub to my mother in law so they can cancel AT&T service and port their number. They will probably just sign up for the $59.99 activation and a number port, but it's another new account for Ooma!
I can't wait to get all 3 of my handsets working!
Keep it up, Ooma! Every time I hit snags you figure it out and call quality is stellar.
Agreed and there is no doubt about that. I have full confidence in Ooma team like Dennis, Bobby and others. Lets give them a high five.aldousxml wrote:We need to give them time.

I hope they grow, prosper, and keep a good and reliable service for years to come (for members benefit!)!hutbay wrote:I agree. Give them time to grow, sometimes companies grows too fast and end up stretching resources available to them causing quality degradation for current customers,loses customers and then fails to attract new ones. I'm sure ooma has a growth strategy which will allow them to add more customers and resources as it grows each year.
What I am afraid of is that the V.C. who are financing them until they can be profitable... are maybe causing them to hurry and grow up fast... that way they can cash in big and move on to other things.
Let's hope that is not the case... but it is a possibility that is not unheard of, with Venture Capital outlets!
