Virtual Number Free?

Post by Ein » Sun May 02, 2010 1:43 am

Adding a virtual number to use with GV free?

Does it also means my access to GVE stops, once my Premier trial ends?

Premier includes a second number, either a GV virtual number or stand-alone number. Once you are no longer a Premier customer additional numbers are extra. The rates page used to include a cost of extra numbers ($4.95/month, IIRC), but it's not currently listed so I'm not sure what the significance is for that: http://www.ooma.com/legal/rates

I don't think you can get a virtual number without Premier anymore.

And yes, you have to have Premier for GVE.

Right now I have Premier trial. I find it a little odd that it allows me to get a virtual number for GVE ( I didn't actually go through the adding virtual number process), but not the International calling bundle.

The free trial of Premier has always allowed acquiring a second phone number. Otherwise you don't get a full trial of Premier. If you don't subscribe to Premier, the number goes away at the end of the trial. It used to be that you had to opt-in to Premier. Now you have to opt-out of Premier if you don't want it.

$349.99 (approximately 3.5 times the then Annual Premier price of $99.99)
The option expired 12/31/2009.
It's no longer available.

Not sure if this is normal, but I've had Ooma for almost a year now, I didn't sign up for Premier until today, I did set up a 2nd # when I had the free Premier trial last year. I was pleasantly surprised after my Premier kicked back in today the same 2nd number I had when I first set up my Ooma was still there.
