The hubs sold by Fry's are factory refurbished and will not have the reactivation fee - but if they are not selling the "core" product (that is, the hub and scout together) they may indeed be subject to the recovery fees. Best to check with ooma sales to be sure.

southsound is right. I am not sure why I was thinking "used." Anyway, from this thread, it looks like the Core terms & conditions will be honored with these refurbs sold by authorized retailers.

Another option for you is to buy new from TigerDirect. @$199 and currently with 12.3% bing cashback, you get $24.60 from Microsoft after 60 days much like a rebate. Just go to bing.com, search for "laptop" and click on TigerDirect reflected in sponsored links and search for ooma.

I used to be in charge of the price changes at a grocery store. :D I guess someone forgot to put on the sale price? :?:

I know I'm late to the party, but see my posting here: http://www.ooma.com/forums/viewtopic.ph ... =10#p53783. In other words, beware of the fees.

For a few days now, both CompUSA and TigerDirect show "out of stock" for these ooma Core units; it sure was a nice price @199 and 20 some bucks cashback. Even RadioShack is out now. Although I have seen CompUSA & TigerDirect reflect "out of stock" before and then days later, come back with more of these ooma Cores in stock but not sure about this time. Amazon and affiliates still have them for $245 or thereabouts. I also see some new sealed units for sale on eBay.
