My question is can the ooma system work through DIRECTV provided internet and will he be able to keep his current number if he drops all land lines. He also uses a fax machine and wonders if that will work if he switches to ooma as well.

Assuming DirecTV runs their Internet service over satellite, there's a good chance you might run into issues with voice quality due to the inherent delay with satellite internet (as you would experience with any other VoIP).
Is there a wired Internet connection where he lives? We recommend using ooma with DSL, Cable, or Fiber-Optic home connections.
I was also told by ooma support that it would NOT work, oh well.
Unfortunately he had to table the idea for now...missing out on the $199 sale.
