I love the Uniden 1580 series. See my post here: http://www.ooma.com/forums/viewtopic.ph ... 989#p49579 I currently use one of my systems with my landline and the other with my Telo - but up until January I used it on my hub.

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.

I have used mostly Panasonic products for more than 20 years, and generally, have liked them very much. However, when I was looking for something to attach to my ooma system, I stumbled on a set which is sold under the GE name and decided to give in a try:

I have six stations in the system. In addition to having a number of other features, including speaker phone, it has its own internal paging system. Very small and light... individual unit weighs approximately. 2-3 oz. Lithium battery. Total cost at Fry's was about $130 for base (without voicemail) and 5 stations. So far (a little more than one year later), I am very happy with the system.

I've learned a lot here... two months ago I didn't even know how to spell VOIP and now I are one.

I have Panasonic DECT phones and they are the best cordless phones I have ever had. They are a couple of years old, and have probably been replaced in their lineup. Sound quality is as good as a corded phone, battery life is incredible, speakerphone in the handsets as well as headset jacks, and they take normal AAA NiMH rechargeables. If there was one improvement I could make, it would be to backlight the keypad on these phones. They work great with the hub.

These are what I have:

I added a rather inexpensive V-tech cordless phone to my ooma setup at home-- I think the phone was all of 14 bucks plus tax. Light, good display, and the voicemail-waiting indicator is ooma-compatable, which is really nice to have. Quality throughout the home is quite good.
