I just normally use the Img button and link to the graphic if it is on another site. Saves space on ooma's server.

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

I think comcast is the culprit here. The only account I have with my first name spelled incorrectly is on Comcast. Any junk mail I receive with that name on presumably originated with comcast account information. They probably took your pet's name from your email account and added it to their address list.

you might want to run anti-spyware to check your PC or you may not have them any more since you joined a long ago.
Spyware can do a lots of things you described here. At the same time, I'd register your phone to "national don't call list".

I don't think OOMA is stupid enought to sell you information.

If you're right, it sounds like ooma might be owed an apology here.

ooma does indeed divulge phone numbers. since acquiring the service, my telemarketer calls have gone up 100 fold. my blacklist has over 200 numbers in it. all telemarketers. my phone rings 4 times a day from these cockroaches. i don't anwser if i don't recognize the caller. i then go into my list of inbound calls once a week and blacklist (disconnect mesage) all of them. this is very tedious and sad ooma would do this.

Ooma is not to blame for increase in spam calls.

Did you port your number into Ooma? /viewtopic.php?f=9&t=13976&start=20#p104248
