I am a premiere member and it was/is $29.99 for me as well.

Cool, thanks for the confirmation. In a blog earlier this month, the writer said that Premiere members wouldn't have to pay for the adapter. Oh well.

Hey, why is that list of supported headsets so small? Do you think I will have problems with my Emerson headset:

I should ask our web team to clarify on the compatibility page - the list of headsets and phones on the page are known to be working, mainly through beta user reports and internal testing.

Many other devices will work, but they haven't been formally reported and verified to be working.

Yes. Where did you get the idea it would be free?

This BT feature require premier service. If you are on core or basic service, the BT will not work.

There were some other sites too if you google it. I guess things changed over the past few months.

No love for core / original ooma folks? There's a USB adaptor on the back of the old hubs - why not enable this feature on both?

The USB port on the Hub is not functional.

Thanks Bobby. Glad I got my experimenting done early. Now I know that there would be no advantage to me buying the adapter. :cool:

The Telo not only uses different hardware, but the internal software is based on Freeswitch where the hub was a modified version of Asterisk. So I suspect there would be a major amount of work to make it also run on the hub. And that is assuming it could be done at all. I don't know enough about it to say one way or the other.
