My question is this:
The directly-linked “Advanced Calling” features include Google Voice Extensions as the fifth item. This clearly implies that GVE is now available for Hub owners.
I need to know if this promotion is accurate. If it is, I am interested. If the list is not accurate, it is false and misleading advertising. I do not want to make a purchase based on an assumption, as I did with my original Hub purchase.
Can someone please answer this? The offer expires on 6/30.
(Additional key words: Core)
Without that there is no way to configure Google Voice Extensions.

- I will not be upgrading to premier,
- I will be much more cautious about who I refer,
- and I will post on my personal technology blog, post on my Facebook page, and Tweet that you have decided to withdraw the feature about which I was most excited and which prompted my initial Ooma purchase.
I guess I just should not assume companies will do what they say they will do, since I don't personally have the resources to require such in court.
Ooma has just clarified that they will not offer Google Voice Extensions to users of their traditional Hub product line, but only to those who purchase the new Telo product.
This is despite the fact that the Telo was not even available for months after the original planned release of GVE. GVE was originally slated for spring/summer 2009 with Telo scheduled for a holiday 2009 release.
The Google Voice Extensions was a key feature in my decision to go with Ooma, and was the main reason why I later expanded my system with two Scout units. I find it hard to justify $350 in new equipment just to get features that were announced for my current equipment.

I've learned a lot here... two months ago I didn't even know how to spell VOIP and now I are one.
I don't think there will be GVE on Hub either, but BobbyB didn't say what you are attributing to him.MWPollard wrote:Ooma has just clarified that they will not offer Google Voice Extensions to users of their traditional Hub product line, but only to those who purchase the new Telo product.
He said "Google Voice is not available for the Hub.", which is a statement about the present with no implied status one way or the other about the future.
He didn't say "Google Voice will never be available for the Hub". If he had said that, then the statement would truly be a clarification not open to further interpretation.
Again I'm not holding out hope, and it may very well be the case. This is just a comment on what someone said and what someone else interpreted.
