Entering the Ooma Vortex

Yesterday we bought a new office phone system. It's call Ooma. It's a box you buy at the store (we got it on sale for $199, typically it runs about $249) and then you can make and receive domestic phone calls for free, forever through your high-speed internet, which you're already paying for. Ooma is an additional device, not connected with your internet provider. One telephone number is included.

We also signed up for the Premier Services, which run $99 per year, or $8.25 per month through Ooma. These services include:
  • An instant second line (through the same box)
  • Three-way conferencing
  • Voice mail forwarding to our cell phones when we're out
  • A personal blacklist (ooohhhh!)
  • Custom ring patterns
  • Message screening
  • An additional phone number
Wishing there was more to report, I'll be signing off to make some calls.

The telephone is a good way to talk to people without having to offer them a drink.
