The answer is yes CURRENTLY. What if they change their policy in a month or many months, before you need it?hari wrote:Whenever my hub goes belly up, I could simply buy a telo and as a "Previous Ooma Hub Owner" transfer my service to it?
I am trying to decide if I should get the extended warranty too. I have the core without fees and it died after 10.5 months of use. I was busy and waited (without the phone working) for over a month before complaining, so I am about to receive the replacement. I don't know if it will be a core or telo, didn't ask. I guess I don't care either way, but will complain if I am assessed fees.
Last year I was really happy to have the Ooma, as my cellphone plan had limited minutes. These days I have a cell with unlimited minutes. I was somewhat satisfied with the quality of Ooma but just OK, not that happy. So, I wonder how much I need it. On the other hand, it would suck if my replacement dies in less than a year, and that's the end of it... meaning I would have gotten under 22.5 months of service for the upfront device cost I paid ($220 or so). Yeah, not bad, but I had hoped for more -- they are not supposed to be 1 or 2 year expiring devices. (Also in the coming year I might not use it nearly as much as last year. I'm going to think about how much use I'll get from it.)
I think the replacement should come with a free 1 year or at least 6 mo. Otherwise, what if the replacement works but dies in 2 weeks?! Then I have only gotten 11 months of service for my $220. (I have paid for a few months of Premier too, was worth it except for the time when my device was dead so I had zero service.) Even their refurbs come with 4-6 months, and they think a device should last 5 years, so a replacement should be based on the actual device not based on the fact that I've been an Ooma customer. A year isn't much to ask since failing within a year is pitiful.
Would help if the warranty cost less, like $29.95. Probably for $40 that covers their costs of shipping, handling, customer service, and manufacturing. I was a bit frustrated with the phone service, the reps seem to be in India. Anyway I would hate to buy the warranty and have the device die in 13 months.
And I am still trying to decide about the $40 warranty. If I do NOT buy it, then whenever it fails (1 month to 6 or more years), I would have to spend $200 on a Telo I guess. Maybe catch a sale for $180 or less. But I read a bunch of people disliked the telo and went back to the hub. And I definitely want all my same features without being premier, I have free CID and no tax and care about voicemail.
I feel like it's risky either way. Warranties should be cheap enough that you want it, and feel protected, and are happy. Too bad I didn't buy squaretrade.

Sometimes when it's close, you can extend your warranty for fourty dollars.Mr. Mom wrote:I think the extended warranty might be a good idea. It seems that my Telo unit just broke and I've had it activated for 13 months. If it truly is broken, the cost would be very similar to that of a land line, only not quite as good. Totally wish I had the extended warranty, now.

Could you clarify? It was confirmed multiple times in this thread that (based on the current rules) you will be able transfer your current plan (involving no tax and surcharge) to a new hub or telo device.OomaGirl wrote:Also maybe this was discussed already, burt I believe you'd need a Premier account to get the no-tax deal transferred to a Hub.
I want HD quality but would probably dislike Telo compared to the Hub. HD quality probably trumps the downsides of Telo for me, but I'm not going to pay a bunch to switch. It does say you can sell your used Hub, but the new owner will pay over $71 in fees.
