Just curious when the Ooma Telo will be relesed? Also will it come with 2 handsets or just one.
Thanks.

Telo is scheduled to be released in Q3. Packaging and bundling will be announced as we get closer to the launch.

Will current Scouts work with the new Telo hub?

No, they will not. The current Hub/Scouts run HPNA over your home phone wiring. We decided to move to a wireless protocol, DECT 6.0, for Telo because of better cost, compatibility, and convenience.

No, the current Hub and Scout will continue to work together as they do today. We will continue to sell and support the current devices after Telo ships.

Will we be able to upgrade to Telo at a discounted cost?

That's good news that you are progressing with new products and services. I will be upgrading to the Premier service in the next day or two because 'How can you beat all the great extra features for $8 a month?'. I would hope that most see the benefit of the second line and extra features and continue to support ooma so that we continue to have you around! For me, the choice of a second line in my family's home town allows them to call me at no charge and no use of their cell phone minutes. That way it saves both of us money. Them by no long distance costs and me for no Ma Bell.

I think OOMA is a great service at a good price.

I will support the Telo and the company.

having control of my calls is paramount.

Thank you ooma

I was paying $100 a month for a cell phone that I could not even block certain numbers, it was insane.

There are no confirmed plans at the moment, but it is under consideration.
