OOMA

Post by SLK230 » Mon Mar 18, 2013 12:21 pm

I just purchased OOMA it works just great and will save me about $30/month.
Thought for the day:
We are always hearing about how Social Security is going to run out of money.
How come we never hear about Welfare running out of money?

That's great, Al. What is OOMA?

OOMA is a VOiP (Voice Over Internet protocall) similar to magic jack except this really works. The call quality is excellent.

I can call anywhere in the US at no charge in addition there is no monthly fee except for taxes. (about $4/month)

It usually sells for $179 I git it as Costco for $129.

It will pay for itself in about 4 months.

Sounds like a good deal for you. We don't make enough long-distance calls to warrant anything but our $21 a month landline (I have no idea why...you'll have to ask my wife) and two Trac cell phones that cost about $4XX a year for both...calls and phone included. We get our HS Internet and HBO and one HD box as a perk of the bride's job...non-taxed bennies (basic cable is free in the Village). I'm not too big on telephone chatting...I like email and Facebook.

I don't make a lot of long distance either. OOMA would eliminate your $21/month bill. It would pay for itself in 6 months.

I understand and appreciate that....the bride and her mom have this "thing" about landlines...it's between those two..I don't ask. Small price to pay at any rate.

That is true but it will work with cell phone or internet.
