Hi All,

I am struggling whether I should return my Ooma that I've just bought last week. After I found out that Ooma will release an update one Telo within this year... It is nice to have a cordless phone with the main unit.

It doesn't seem like they will offer any upgrade program.
If they do, I beg the price will not be much cheaper than the new one.

Any suggestion/idea?

Why would you want to return a great item like the ooma hub/scout? It will remain functional even when Telo is out and works great with DECT 6.0 phones like the Uniden 1580 or 1588 (with the answering function turned off in my case). The only thing you will miss by getting in now is a stack of expensive phone bills!

When Telo ships, if you really want one because of the integrated cordless phone and other features, then buy it and gift your ooma hub/scout to a friend or relative. The bottom line, you will save money from today out and your friend or relative will be blessed with a very nice gift! I love my ooma hub (haven't needed the scout yet) and would not want to miss having it - even though when I bought it I was aware of the Telo. I think most on the forum would agree - but this is just my humble opinion. YMMV

You can always eBay the scout if you don't want it. Many of the users on this forum use multiple scouts. They are going for between $45 and $48 with Buy it Now.

Some Costco locations now have the ooma hub only for $199.99 -

To the OP, I agree with Scott, figure out your ROI. And you may not be able to get the Telo for at least 2 or 3 months.

I'm using a set of four Panasonic Dect 6.0 phones from Costco, they work great with the ooma hub.

A single phone in the telo wouldn't be enough for me anyway. Even if I had the telo, I'd still have to use a set of Dect 6.0 phones anyway.

By the time the telo comes out, I will have already paid for the ooma hub. I figure 5 months pays for it, and I'm already into month two.
