For any more of the promised release dates, take it with a grain of salt!
also, about the ring tones. If the technology is there I see another great way for Ooma to make some money. I don't mind paying my cell carrier 1.99 a song why not offer that and keep making money without giving us a phone bill
I haven't heard that, but I have read that the Telo will support DECT 6.0 handsets - I think up to six such handsets.tobey717 wrote:Is it true the Telso will have Bluetooth functionality for your cell phone? I would so love that as my AT&T cordless setup is starting to go out I would much rather spend the money on this then another cordless phone set..
Ooma equipment: Hub ; Telo + 4 handsets
Ooma service: Annual Premier subscription
I assume "connected phonebook" and "mobile transfer" is (or was?) the purpose of Bluetooth, though I'll be super excited if Telo also supports using Bluetooth headsets with Telo handsets.New, with ooma Telo, is a powerful cordless handset featuring DECT 6.0 technology, High-Definition voice, connected phonebook, mobile transfer, speaker phone, and musical ring tones. Customers can expand to six handsets, enough for each room in the house.
“Simply put, Telo sounds better, connects better and works better than any traditional phone or VoIP service available today,” said Rich Buchanan, Chief Marketing Officer at ooma. “Telo represents the necessary evolution of communication in the home and helps combine the home phone and cell phone so you can enjoy the benefits of both without any compromises.”

I dont think bluetooth as I see Google Voice integration. In google Voice. My WM cell phone has the exchange server set to google, and my contacts populate with numbers automatically. I thought google voice could transfer from one line to another, so thats where Id get the mobile transfer.
I personally dont see bluetooth for anything other than a peer to peer ad hoc conectivity or headphones

Looks pretty slick.
The quick review also seems to indicate that there will not be any hub+handset bundles right out of the gate.
I was thinking of waiting until the telo came out to get ooma (finally bought one last week), but am glad I went ahead and bought the regular hub. I wanted to jump on the savings bandwagon (over Vonage) as soon as possible and I already have a set of good DECT 6.0 phones (and it would take something like bluetooth compatibility to get me to upgrade them, which sounds like it was left out of the first incarnation of telo)
The telo looks like a great product, but I wonder what the price will be, especially if there won't be any bundles (if the review linked above is true).
The HD handset manual is available, too: https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/prod/oet/form ... or_pdf=pdf
