I have POTS (basic phone) with AT&T, already moved my Internet to Time Warner Cable. I've already had to shell out hundreds for a new cable modem and new router, service moves, etc. Now $40 for number porting.

Could I save the $40 if I CANCEL my existing POTS? Or, is the $40 really for Ooma to work my number into their umbrella?

I'm also looking at the benefits of the Premier membership (I could use the $40 porting as my freebie).

If you want to port your number into Ooma, do not cancel your service before porting is complete.
The only way to get porting for free is to sign up to 1 year of Premier for the 1st time.

Hi. Just got my Ooma teleo. Signed up and paid for a Premier membership yesterday. Still haven't received any acknowledgement from Ooma.
When I checked My Ooma, I saw that I was recognized as a Premier member.
I started the porting process and kept going until placing the order. The $39.99 charge was still showing up in the price column.
Does the trial membership interfere with being recognized? I'd really like to start the porting process asap so I can leave Comcast phone and I'd really like not to get charged for the 40 bucks.
Thanks.

New user here. I'm wondering why I should port my number. Why not just use the number I chose when I set up. No letter heads, no business cards, no checks with phone numbers. Seems easy enough to just email everybody and announce the number. If Ooma doesn't survive, do it again. Am I missing something if I'm willing to do this?
Thanks,

If you don't mind losing your old number that is a good way to go.
