I don't believe that ooma allows you to port in an 800 number.PROFAUX.COM wrote:I have a 800 number that I would like to port.........Is it possible?
That said, is the 800 number through your current telephone utility or did you purchase it from a company that just forwards the calls to a regular landline? If the latter, then just have that company change where the calls forward to your ooma number. If it is currently with the telco directly, then you will need to port it to a company that can forward it to your ooma number. One company I have had good success with is voip.ms. You don't need any voip hardware to use them. Just set up the port and then use their control panel to forward the number to your ooma system. Porting is $25 and the per minute and monthly rates are very reasonable.

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
For years I've had a few 800#s through what is now Telrite.com (800# routes to any phone #, my Ooma number in this case.) I only pay for what I use and that's next to nothing. I'm not sure if my plan is grandfathered in. I've been very happy with them.
I originally got the 800#s because they were offered without charge for usage only. They used to come in handy at payphones. Now that payphones almost don't exist, I just keep them out of habit.

Costs about $12.50 per month if paid on annual basis. See: http://www.toktumi.com/Pricing.aspx
Smartphone app is free to download, and is nearly flawless. Both inbound and outbound calls can be made via wifi on the Line2 app.
I've learned a lot here... two months ago I didn't even know how to spell VOIP and now I are one.
