No.

From the TOS

(j) No 0+ or Operator Assisted Calling; May Not Support x11 Calling. The Equipment, if not connected to a landline, does not support 0+ or operator assisted calling (including, without limitation, collect calls, third party billing calls, 900 or calling card calls). The Equipment, if not connected to a landline, may not support 311, 511 and/or other x11 services in one or more (or all) service areas (other than certain specified dialing such as 911 and 411, which are provided for elsewhere in this Agreement, and 711, which is used to access telecommunications relay services). To keep all of these services, please have your Equipment configured with a landline.

The bad news: No, ooma doesn't except collect calls. The good news: No, ooma doesn't except collect calls! :)

Wayne would be happy to show you, but I'll bet he charges a walnut brownie for the information. :P

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.

Yeah, I guess I have to watch my grammer... however my grammer died quite a few years ago and I sure miss the lady!
