call log deletion

Post by puterabbi » Mon Mar 15, 2010 9:51 am

Request for improvement:

I do not want to keep a permanent record, either on or off my computer,
of CALL LOGS.

I want to be able to delete my CALL LOGS, wholesale.
That is, with hundreds of calls stored there, I want to delete them all at once.
I don't want them stored on my computer, where I can see them,
and I would prefer to be able to erase them from oom's system, too.
PRIVACY, P L E A S E.

Obviously this customer wants to delete calls without waiting for them to age 60 days. I too would like the functionality to delete one or many call records on demand.

I think I understand the OP. However, on the otherside (i.e. law enforcement) I don't think you can actually delete your call record from Ooma server.

If the FBI (for exemple) come with a warrant, they will get your calling record. Ooma and other telco are required by law to keep it

This is why in the late 60's early 70's, as I was pursuing my career as a "conceptual artist" I used a briefcase IMTS phone. At that time, SF and Oakland shared 11 channels and had not implemented IMTS so you had to give the operator your billing information. Local news outlets in the Bay Area were a great source of free calling. Of course, I'd never do that now. Now I have ooma! :P

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

The way i see the problem, being able to delete calls randomly defeats the purpose of having a call log. Perhaps being able to opt out of call logs entirely would work for those who are concerned about prying eyes.
