I read somewhere that ooma is now/very soon giving out sip credentials to its customers for use with mobile phone clients / softphones. How do i obtain my credientials or are they not doing that yet?
They have said they are coming out with an iPhone client. In the process of doing that, they essentially will be set up for BYOD with a little work.
I don't know if they have decided whether they will do BYOD or not.
If they decide to do BYOD, then you can look at getting SIP credentials.
That was months ago. Months ago is like years ago for a nimble startup like Ooma. Priorities may have changed and they may no longer be interested in pursuing mobile or SIP as a platform. All we really know is that they're no longer interested in talking about it.swapped wrote:just what i read on some forums.

My opinions are my own.
Probably a forum where I told a poster it wasn't so, one who linked me back to a Rich Buchanan tweet from before he left Ooma which was CES pre-buzz in itself back in January. The iPhone app was inadvertently released prematurely but pulled back shortly thereafter.swapped wrote:just what i read on some forums.

Trust me, if sip credentials were already available to us, there are many of us here with very good ATA equipment that would be all over it like a Hobo on a half eaten Hot Dog.
I'm excited about SIP or other ooma support on iDevices. My main request would be to allow configuration of bluetooth devices with mic to work on the ipad. I configured a SIP client through GVoice, Gizmo5, sip sorcery, and sip gate (described here: http://ipad-candy.com/ipad_phone_calling/) however, the bluetooth mic/headsets did not work on the SIP client. That's a HUGE disappointment. as it would be VERY nice to have calling through my pad.
Any who, looking forward to seeing what the ooma team comes up with!
Bobby said that beta testing would start soon but didn't say when the app would come out.Bobby B wrote:The iPhone SIP client will soon go to beta - we were aiming to start it within 1-2 weeks.
