So, I received a call last night from our local police dept wanting $$$ for something or other. But what I found interesting is that they were using Ooma for their fund raising drive. Isn't that against the TOS? Shouldn't the police know better....oops, it's the police. Enforce the rules but don't follow them?
Number still on caller id if admins want it.

That was someone calling from home.
They don't do their solicitations for the FOP from the police station.

If true, does FOP qualify as a "small home business"?

if one member is given 100 numbers to call and he happens to have ooma, what's the problem?

Here is a quote from this page: https://www.ooma.com/termsandconditions/

"You are prohibited from using the Equipment or any Services for auto-dialing, continuous, or extensive call forwarding, telemarketing (including, without limitation, charitable or political solicitation or polling), voicemail broadcasting, or fax or voicemail blasting or with regular, consistent activity that could be considered commercial or for-profit in nature ("Prohibited Use")."

seems pretty clear from the TOS that charitable telemarketing is specifically prohibited. i suppose if it is a rare one-off situation it probably not a big deal, but if someone is sitting home every night calling phone lists that is a violation.

may seem harmless but telemarketing increases costs for all the rest of us.

I know what you mean. Just recently my cost to use ooma went from "Free" to "Free-er".

Sorry, couldn't resist ;)

Mine went from free to really free - (It's Friday after all :) )
