I knew I shouldn't have posted :-)
My call log data is okay but now my block list entries appear to have gone away - numbers that had been blocked for months are now crawling back out from whatever telemarketing rock they've been festering under sigh:

I agree with Beachbum's comments as well - I have well over 15 years IT experience and certainly know how to setup production, qa and test environments, implement rollout (and backout) plans, e.t.c - this does not seem to have been handled well on OOMA's part at all and might still be excused - what is not excusable is a lack of communication from OOMA management. This is "Marketing 101" guys - customers come first (or at least act as if they do), treat them with respect (this means the same way you would expect to be treated), acknowledge problems when they occur etc etc. Again, it seems like they need to hire a consumer marketing exec and then a decent PR firm to take direction from that exec - Twitter and Facebook promotions are fine but make sure that you take care of the core business requirements first.

I believe that Coldsteel has stated the case very eloquently. As a point of information, as of April 10, 2010, business reporting services showed Tami Bhaumik as the Vice President of Corporate Marketing, Ooma, Inc. She has a very impressive work background, and without a doubt, must be very aware that customer goodwill is a mandatory factor in a successful Ooma, Inc. business model. Her published toll free telephone number at Ooma in Palo Alto is listed as 866-452-6662. Perhaps she will be kind enough to take this matter to heart, and take the necessary steps towards improving Ooma's communications with all of us who have spent our hard earned money in purchasing Ooma's products.

From the comments on here, it looks like adding a number to the Blacklist trashes it. But there is nothing on the status page about Blacklists so...

To be on the safe side, anyone that still has their Blacklist should NOT try to add anymore. Either from Call Log or manually.

Hopefully, this is a clue to ooma on how to fix it or at least where to find the nasty code responsible.

ooma?

I am still unable to get Blacklist to work at all. Tried again today and I can't add numbers and my original list is still gone.

Unfortunately, I have to reactivate the Multi-Ring. Which means that my cell will now be ringing like crazy again but I have no choice.

Please someone, fix this...

Ok we're working on fixing two issues here:

1. For the folks that have reported losing blacklist entries - we'll either be restoring them automatically. We're aiming to have this done by 4/29.

2. If you're having issues adding entries - we're aiming to get a fix out by 4/28.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

To clarify, only those with trouble tickets will have their Blacklist restored?

THANKS AGAIN!

Bobby B:
Can you please clarify? Our blacklist looked fine up until yesterday (I hadn't checked it since mid-week, say 21-Apr), but when I checked it yesterday it was completely blank. All the entries are gone. So, will Ooma provide a system wide restore of all blacklists, or will it be only for those who contact CS? If you are doing a system wide restore, will it be based on entries that existed at some fixed point (date) in the past? Thanks for your help!

Same here. I recently added a number to the blacklist. It's completely gone now. I added a few more this morning, then logged out and later logged back in the list is empty again. My premier is still in effect.

Yes, we're going to restore blacklists system-wide for all folks that have lost entries.
