I am looking at the difference between the Ooma Hub and Ooma Telo for my mom. The biggest difference that seems to matter is the Ooma HD Voice. The Ooma Hub doesn't require any month fees so that would be better and supports the Scout. So the Hub may be the way to go if the Ooma HD Voice doesn't make a big difference?
What do you guys think?

The Telo give you access to GVE, Bluetooth, easier access to the instant second line on the handsets, among other advantages. It will also be the unit that's supported with new features going forward.
For someone looking for basic phone service, the Core is a good deal while it's still available with no fees.
The Telo handset is functional and has improved with firmware updates since its release.
It works well for access to the instant 2nd line, call screening and voicemail. Its range and battery life is not as good as other cordless phones.
If you have Premier and want access to the instant 2nd line, call screening and voicemail in multiple locations, I would recommend getting a DECT cordless phone system (like a Panasonic) plus one or more Telo handsets.
There have been a number of firmware improvements, but some hardware issues are not correctable via firmware (sharp edges, screen different from box & ad photos). If there is a specific issue you've read about in the reviews and are concerned about, I'm sure you can get an accurate assessment of the issue from this forum.mattwj2005 wrote:Right now I have a Panasonic KX-TG6511B. It works very well. So you recommend the Telo handset? It would be nice to make two calls out at once. Maybe those reviews are old too. You know before the firmware updates.
