Ooma Telo VoIP Home Phone System - Woot $79.99


Recommended Posts

I also use one of these in my house and we are very happy with it.


We ported our House phone # to it without a problem.

Best invention ever. Smokes Vonage. Recommend implementing QoS to dedicate bandwidth to Ooma for acceptable voice quality.

Ha ha


I got mine at woot.com a year or so ago. Zero regrets.  I paid $99 though!  We pay $4 monthly for service and it's great.

How do I use this with my Lumia 900??  (Ikon ducks and runs for cover ;) )

If you are cheap you could consider running the free version of 3CX (2 concurrent calls) on your server and buying a pstn gateway (Allows your IP PBX to connect to your normal landline). This would allow you to just install any sip client. I'm sure there are heaps for Windows phones and you can also run any sip handset in your home. I'm currently running 3CX at home and have 2x Skype SIP trunks one in UK , 1 in New Zealand So I can call home for free and have a number to call that routes here to the UK from NZ I pay a few quid a month for both of the trunks and that's it. I do have a conventional line also that 3CX uses for local calling.

If you're really cheap <cough> you could use MagicJack and for $17 a year do it all.  Plus they have an App so as long as you have a Wireless Connection, you can connect to your MJ phone.  Used it for a year from Afghanistan and it saw me as making a local call.

It was a joke guys :D I don't have a landline. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Ooma would have a hard time without one, yes?

Your wrong.....Ooma is a VOIP device.  It uses your internet connection to make phone calls.

      Here we go.  Happy November 1st everyone!  This is the official RESET "Black Friday" Deals thread.  Post your finds, ads, and wish lists here.  Links are encouraged. 
      Here is Amazon's "Countdown to Black Friday."  http://amzn.to/2z3WgVm

      Kohl's ad leaked a week or so ago.  Some really amazing deals in their ad.

      $299.99 4K TV 55" - https://www.kohls.com/search.jsp?submit-search=web-regular&search=Haier+55-inch+4K+Ultra+HD+TV&S

      $189.99 Microsoft Xbox One S 500GB Console and $45 Kohl's Cash
      Black Friday and Cyber Monday are good days for RESET. Online guys like me depend on a few sales in order to pay for the site, CES, etc.  I would REALLY appreciate if you would use links here on RESET Forums to shop with.  If you have an ad blocker please "UNBLOCK" this site.  I use a small javascript to monetize links and most ad blockers block that.  You will see nothing funny and I'll get credit for your purchases. Small credit, but it helps!  Thank you.

      Tons of cool deals on Amazon today.  I thought I would show you a few of them.
      Let's start with Amazon Show. Not the expensive one, the DIY Show!
      Fire Tablet with Alexa - $49.99 - http://amzn.to/2xJMvcS
      Tablet Stand $9.59 - http://amzn.to/2wGlOcf
      JBL Bluetooth Speaker - http://amzn.to/2vGGOem
      I'm currently trying to think of ways to use the battery operated LED strings and who can't use a bluetooth headset.  I have two here for you.  Read up on them.
      Yes, I think the wall mounted hand gets thing could be handy in the house.  Where everyone comes in right? Garage?
      And lastly, I love this set of battery operated yard tools. http://amzn.to/2xJP2DU. It's not gas powered backpack kind of power but it's VERY handy.  I have one of the little blowers and LOVE it.  You can grab it real quick and swoosh away anything.

      The batteries go into a ton of other devices too.  Take a look!
