Save On Ooma (Home Phone)

January 18th, 2014 at 01:08 pm

I think I talked about our switch to Ooma awhile ago. I wanted to give you an update on how it is going.

We have had our Ooma VoiP phone service for over two months. We bought the Ooma Telo box when it was on sale for $99.99 with free shipping. We now pay only $3.74 for our home phone service per month. That fee covers the federal taxes for our area. It may differ for you. The quality of the calls is awesome! You can't tell any difference from a traditional land line. I haven't had the connections fail at all. We don't get any telemarketing calls because we chose a new number, rather than porting our current number over. It was also a snap to set up. I don't think it took us more than 15 minutes. Most of the set up time was online, picking a number and setting up our account. I definitely don't have any regrets. Obviously, if you have already dumped your land line and have gone to cell only service, than this probably doesn't interest you, but it is a great deal for those of you who may still want a home phone.

The regular price of the Ooma Telo box is $149.99 plus shipping. As I mentioned above, we bought ours when there was a sale. That sale is back! If you have been on the fence about purchasing an Ooma now is the time. The deal is again for $99.99 with free shipping. It is good through at least January 30. I'd be honored if you use my referral code of FUD3038 when you make your purchase. I do receive a $20 credit for up to five referrals. And as I write this, I realize that once I receive those, I will have ended up with my purchase price back! Nifty. I guess the option to refer new users will be available in the future to give you the chance to get your Ooma purchase money back as well. Nifty for all of us!

I'd be happy to answer questions as best I can, if you want to ask in the comments. Otherwise, the Ooma.com website is full of great information and reviews by other users.

P.S. I wrote a final update about my low spend week on Our Money Blog, if you are curious how I did.

    Does the Ooma work with a home security system?

    That is the exact question I wanted to ask.

    I would definitely consider it. Been wanting to do this a long time. I don't think there's any cancellation charge for dropping their Uverse phone. I wold still keep uverse Internet. The phone rate will double in March.

    I'm not a techie person, just hope set-up is as easy as it appears to be.

    I do not have any direct experience with security systems. I would check with your alarm company. I do know that if the internet is down, you will not have service with the Ooma. Thus, it seems a land line might be more reliable for an alarm system to call out when needed. This isn't an issue for us as we have cell phones as back up if our internet is down. I couldn't find any alarm info on their site. Sorry!

    @PS, I think you will be amazed at how easy it is to set up. We thought the instructions were very easy to follow.
