For most new Ooma users, it is $3.47 per month for RRF right now.

Well that's a good point... that brings it to $41.64 / month, slightly more expensive that Magic Jack. Unless you can find the original ooma for sale somewhere, like I have.

$41.64 per year. MagicJack isn't even in the same league as Ooma when it comes to quality.

I don't know the particulars of this case, but radio announcers are often paid a "promotional consideration" to talk about a product. It's like a commercial except seemingly a more seamless part of a broadcast. I think many talk show hosts do the same thing.
