We need a way to forward a number in the event that the Ooma hub is not accessible, because of WAN failure. Is there such a function? If so I have not located it in the lounge as of yet.

I agree. This is one thing that Vonage does right that makes Ooma less attractive than Vonage. If the Ooma servers can't see my Ooma hub, then all calls should go to a number I specify in the Ooma Lounge in a preference.

Ooma has multi-Ring. Configure your ooma system to call forward to or simultaneously ring a mobile or other phone number. If the Hub is unpluged or off the call will ring on the forwarded number. (preferences then go to Calling.)

But then this calls the other number even when everything is working fine. Some of us would like the other number to ring only when ooma is out of service (due to power out, internet out, etc). Most all VoIP providers offer this option.

This feature is definitely on the development radar - it was actually a fairly highly requested feature in our last Premier survey.

This means you won't ever know if someone's calling your house or your cell...Also means every inbound call is going to set off every phone in the house, your pocket, etc.

Maybe Bobby can comment on this, but it seems as though all of these things are fixable and services can be added as they go. If they can take a lead from vonage as to the types of features people would really like to use, such as the softphone, forwarding, auto-hunt, etc. and just give everyone a realistic timetable as to when those can be implemented. Vonage is $229/yr and OOMA is about the same, once, and only once, forever....let's just hope they implement enough features to get enough customers and make the company last.

We just had a look at the latest development roadmap -- I think by the end of calendar Q2 is a reasonable target - hopefully it'll arrive a bit earlier.
