I am not sure that the thousands of ooma users who are very happy with their investment would agree that the system is not a good deal. But like I said, your mileage may vary. ooma is not for everyone - but if you find it to be an attractive alternative to high telco phone bills, great. If not, then there are lots of other options out there. We can't - and won't attempt - to make the decision for you. As far as the risks - everything in life comes with risks. You just need to balance the potential benefit with your tollerance for risk. Many of us feel we made a great decision.

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

Would you rather spend $300 every year (what you are doing with your other service for $25/month) or spend $250 on a ooma and then for as long as the ooma device works, not paying that $25 anymore?
