Is a core always a core?

Post by nn5i » Tue Apr 05, 2011 12:15 pm

Query: when a Hub is reactivated (by paying the reactivation fee), and that particular Hub was originally part of a Core, does it retain Core status (free service) after reactivation? Or does it become just another Hub, with a monthly fee? I'm contemplating purchase of such a unit.

You talking about the one up for sale on eBay now? :)
Reactivation of any device will get you on the latest RRF which is monthly.

"The used Ooma Hub may be resold but will require a $xx.xx reactivation fee to assign a new number and owner. When activated, the new account will be subject to the xxxxxx annual regulatory recovery fee."

BTW, I've always wondered about the note posted by Rich on that same day talking about no VM for basic/free service....was there a coup? :P

Thank you, lbmofo. Yes, that's the one I was considering. I'm considering it no longer.

I think I asked this before, and the reponse was that this increase to 12 bucks per mo for fees was not applicable to new Telos. Please tell me I am misinterpreting.....

Ooma Telo Product
Newly Purchased Telo’s

Includes US domestic calling, a free phone number, call waiting, caller ID, and 911 service. Voice mail is no longer included in the base service of the unit.
Telo’s come with a free 60 day trial of Ooma Premier which costs $9.99/mo or $119.99/yr.
Enhanced voicemail is available as a standalone option for $49.99/yr if you don’t want to purchase all the Premier features. Enhanced voicemail includes;
One-Touch access to voicemail, Call Screening
Remote access to messages through any web browser or telephone
Voicemail notifications to your mobile phone
Voicemail mp3 audio file attachment sent to your email
Send-to-Voicemail
Do Not Disturb
Telo’s come with an annual regulatory recovery fee of $11.75 beginning the second year of service
Previous Ooma Hub Owners
Previous Ooma Hub owners (Core or Premier), can move their accounts, phone numbers, and features to the new Telo service including voice mail but will not be subject to the annual regulatory recovery fee of $11.75.
The used Ooma Hub may be resold but will require a $59.99 reactivation fee to assign a new number and owner. When activated, the new account will be subject to the $11.75 annual regulatory recovery fee.

I may be reading it wrong, but the $11.75 fee in the write-up looks to be an annual fee, not monthly. :?:

OOMA just too good to be true... working to break even. Always on edge waiting on the rule change - so negative.... :|

I just ran into a friend of mine. He saw forum up...said - Oh OOMA? I laughed - you too? He Core user for over 2 years now.. funny, these things popping up everywhere. Of course he has never had an issue - ever.

Still looking for the OOMA response to Magic Jack ads on TV...

What did MagicJack say?
Yeah, that $11.75 per year was before the monthly RRF kicked in.
