To pay in advance for a service for that long even with an already established business ... is to say the least reckless, and definitely risky!

Not really. Compared to what I used to pay to Vonage I am already past my break even point.

People said the same thing for a lifetime subscription with Tivo. I have 3 Tivo's, 2 with lifetime subscriptions. One of the lifetime boxes is still going strong after 7 years, so its well past the break even point. Maybe I have been lucky, but I have always been ahead when I've paid for a lifetime service option.

So as long as Ooma stays in business and my Ooma box doesn't break, a lifetime cost would still be well worth it for me. Currently my Ooma Core breaks even at 8 months, after canceling my regular phone. And assuming a lifetime will cost $400, then the cost of Premier would break even a tad over 3 years. It works for me.

Which made it essentially a gamble that the company will be around to provide Premier service 3.5 years from when you buy the lifetime sub.

I'm content to help the company's monthly cashflow with a monthly Premier sub. If the ship were to sink, at least it won't take my lifetime sub AND my investment in Ooma hardware with it.

I must say I was an early adopter and as such paid a premium for my Ooma system. I took a chance and haven't paid a phone bill since 2007. Yes, it was a risk but I'm glad I took it. Sometimes you just got to take a chance.

Ok, so each of us have our own level of tolerance for risk. For those of us who are relatively more risk taking, is there anybody from Ooma who can tell us if there are plans of bringing the lifetime premier offer back? Thanks.

You might want to email or call Tami Bhaumik. She is the Vice President of Corporate Marketing at ooma and would be the one who would know. However, such information is normally held very close to the vest and I would be very surprised if she was willing to divulge future plans since it would be of great advantage to the competition to know such things. All of the rest of us, save a few moderators, are like yourself - endusers who have no way of knowing.

You could just send me $400 in small, unmarked bills and I'd be happy to make the monthly payment for you when I remembered. Of course, raccoons are easily distracted by shiny things and flashing lights. What were we talking about? :P
