I have had our Ooma for about 4 months, total. The Ooma telo just up and died. We took out batteries and tried everything but nothing. We have not been able to use it for about a month. I placed a call (difficult) to Customer Service and "someone" said they would ship out a replacement and that I should return my defective phone to them in the box. Over a week went by and no phone. I called and spoke to Customer Service again. After I explained the situation again, I was told that they had NO inventory of the Ooma tel but were "waiting for a shipment". Another week or so and I called again and was told I would receive the Ooma Telo in a week to 10 days. It has been 10 days and NO WORD from Ooma. We are Senior citizens (80, in fact). We rely on customer service to help us, but so far, nothing.

We have OOma because my son (in another city) recommended it to us and he helped get us set up. I am ready to go back to pay telephone.

Has anyone else had this horrific service (or non-service)? The Telo had to be back-ordered?

Please enlighten us. thank you. :(

YES! In fact, I called yesterday to check the status of an order - 1 handset. They told me that they are backlogged and would have delivery dates available on Monday. I would call again Monday and keep calling every few days.

Thanks. I guess I will have to keep after them. It's too bad. I want them to succeed, but a company is only as good as it's product AND customer service.

I can understand your frustration, but it doesn't sound like you have a problem with their customer service as much as you are frustrated in not getting your new telo handest. Out of stock items and back orders happen to the best of companies at times. Try to hang in there.

Repeated lies like "you'll have it in a week to 10 days" aren't a Customer Service problem? They baldly lie, and it's not a problem? What would you consider a Customer Service problem?

Well, finally success! I called Ooma at 12:48 (watched my computer clock). 17 minutes later they confirmed that my telo should arrive on March 30th! Not too bad, except for the Philip Glass-like music you are forced to listen to while waiting.
Hopefully, it will all work out now.
Phyl :)
