I got the reminder again a 3rd time today about my expiring warranty. He did tell me that they would transfer the same plan to telo, if they can't replace with a hub, but I am not sure if it is one of those lazy answers you get (because the agent has no energy to research or no resources or doesn't care about the impact of his/her response).
If you can access this page: https://my.ooma.com/products/addons_det ... _extension
You can buy the extended warranty.

I take the below as when a Core customer's Hub goes belly up, they call Ooma to buy a Telo and Core should xfer to the new Telo. Like I said, this is unless Ooma changes this in the future. What's printed on the original Core box is that you'd get whatever service/terms coming to you "for the life of the device."

"Previous Ooma Hub Owners

a. Previous Ooma hub owners (Core or Premier), can move their accounts, phone numbers, and features to the new Telo service including voicemail, and will not be subject to the annual regulatory recovery fee."

So heat is really an issue with these devices? Considering how big these are compared to most of the regular voip adapters, I didn't think it could be.

Don't think the devices have issues with heat. I just love the fact that when I feel the bottom of my Hub, it is "as cool as the other side of the pillow." It can't hurt :)

I would appreciate if someone could answer this question, this is the final, I promise. Whenever my hub goes belly up, I could simply buy a telo and as a "Previous Ooma Hub Owner" transfer my service to it?

Seems to me the answer was given several times in the thread. Consistently it has been "yes".

It was, but was always mixed with other bits of information, so wanted to make sure I got it right, that's all. Thanks for your confirmation.

Forgive them. Concise writing is not among their gifts.
