Got this from woot last time. Even though it's supposed to be refurbished, it looked brand new. Couldn't get it to work initially, sent it back and got a new one, didn't have to pay shipping. Still couldn't get it to work. I had an old DSL modem at home and I brought the new one to work that had a new DSL modem and it worked fine so I just called Verizon and they sent me a new DSL modem.
I guess I'm one of the few here that have premier, I signed up for a year to get the free number porting. Other solutions mentioned like nettalk, MJ don't allow porting so there wasn't any other option for me.
I could just upgrade my cell phone plan to unlimited for another $10 and get some bluetooth cordless phones but I had my number for over 20 years and didn't want to get rid of it. One other thing is that I plan to use my home number in ads, I've gotten a few spam text messages when I've posted the cell phone number. Can't get spam text on a landline.
Also I recall reading somewhere that about 25% of ooma users sign up for premier so they do have some other revenue coming in. Also I think their model is that at some point your Telo will break and then you'll have to buy a new one so it won't be just 3.47 forever.
