How about having the option to have a conventional dial tone?!

Yes, I second that.
Give users option to turn off the ooma dial tone.

That would be great to have the option of having a regular dial tone. That should be an option.

i also like to have normal dial tone so when you send fax you don't have to dial *99 front of 10 digit number.

I don't think having to dial *99 has anything at all to do with the "unconventional" dialtone that ooma has. I don't know if they still do this or not, but Vonage used to suggest dialing *99 for a fax call and they've always had a "normal" dialtone.

*99 disables features on your line (call forward, waiting, etc etc) ...therefore provides a more seamless fax transmission.

Whose to say the U.S. dialtone is normal? It's certainly different for folks who live overseas.
While the Ooma does indeed offer free U.S. calling, sales and use of Ooma hubs certainly occur beyond the U.S. border.
The idea of transparency of phone service (not being able to tell if it's Ooma or a landline) does have a certain appeal for some, while knowing you're definitely using your Ooma for a long distance call if you happen to also have a landline connect to the same phone, is also a major positive.
Perhaps, in time, we'll get to pick the type of dialtone we receive.

Think of it as the ooma jingle; something that sets it apart from the Ma and Baby Bells. Reminds me of the cash register cha-ching that ain't happening any more with the at&t's and Verizon's.
