Same for me bit I use it as my main phone. Is ooma a recent option?

Had ooma a few years ago and the box stopped working right after a year warranty was up and the same happened to my sister so I just cancelled them as i wasn't buying anther $100 box

Not sure why you guys don't like MagicJack. I have been very happy with it and you can wire the whole house. Ooma makes you buy a side unit for each phone.
Cuz they charge $10 a year for a ported number.

Ok, I signed up, its free so il check it out.
So far signing up was a breeze, no unplugging devices and wires etc. Their site was very smooth. I spoofed my outgoing caller id to my GV number and forwarded the incoming to my new versalink number. Tested and working fine. They also seem to have a free outgoing online fax service. Not sure why my regular fax machine wont work on the obi like with GV though...

seems like there still good at the end of the thread
its a brand new business, there could be some wrinkles at the beginning.
If it works till May 14th il pay with AMEX and take it from there...


ETA just sent a regular fax, went through fine.

I just signed up for Vesta Link free trial. I put the assigned number into my google voice account as a forwarding number so now calling my homeline rings on the phone.

1) When I pick up it says that I need to press 1 to verify that it's not a fax. How can I disable that?
2) Why do I need to ever port my number into Vestalink? Will this setup not work once doomsday hits?
