I was using VOIP services from different VOIP providers when I had cable as my ISP and without regular POTS laneline service. My VOIP Phone output directly went to one of wall Phone Jacks and I got dialtone on whole house.
For those of you are not using intergrated landline/do not have an active landline, did you try to connect Hub PHONE (instead of WALL) port directly to one of wall Phone Jacks, and get dialtone on whole house?
I have an active landline, and do not have the option to try it out until I port my landline to OOMA...

BTW, just as a side note, you can also plug the "wall" connection from the hub into the phone jack in your house via a line splitter simultaneously with the "phone" connection from the hub if you want to have the option of a live dial tone throughout the house while also having the option of using a scout as well.
To recap, you can plug BOTH the "phone" and "wall" connections from the hub into your existing phone wiring and they will work fine together. This setup will allow you to have the best of both worlds, a live dial tone throughout the house and the ability to plug in a scout in any wall jack for the additional features that only the scout can provide.
Earlier I was thinking about putting the brand new scout on ebay:)
It's nice to have the option, I will keep the scout in case I would like the 2nd OOMA number.
