I just noticed your signture murphy: Hub with 2 Scouts; Telo with 3 Handsets
which is close to what I was thinking for a better upgrade deal- I'm impressed and I've gotta ask - you can just say MYOB but do you have them all Active?

All units are active. Phone numbers in PA, FL, UT.
One scout provides a second phone number, the other scout provides the instant second line for the primary number.

When you subscribed to lifetime Premier, your warranty on your hub was extended to 3 years. Why don't you wait until you get close to your 3 year anniversary, and then upgrade to whatever Ooma device is the latest and greatest at that time?

Thank you all for the suggestions!
I guess I would stay with hub/scout for a couple of more years or till the telo/hanset offer the similar functionality.
As for murphy's two Telo bases approach, it would not fit me as I have one premier account now which can be transfered to telo/handset, but I'd need additional account for the second telo base.

I've been trying to figure out if I want the offer. After reading all the posts I do not see any reason that would really make me want to give up my existing setup. I'm staying with the hub and scout. The old adage if it is not broken do not fix it applies here for me. ;)

It is the biggest reason why I won't move to Telo...

I want two wired lines... as opposed to an "instant 2nd line" which is similar...but not identical...

To clarify, "Instant Second Line" is the term Ooma uses for both Hub and Telo platforms, it's usable with a wired handset on the Hub with a Scout but the Telo requires the cordless Telo Handset for this Premier feature.

Yes... I agree...

My only point was that you need a hub/scout in order to use the instant 2nd line feature to feed a two line phone in a conventional way... Which is what I want/need...
