Ooma Telo is a voice-over-IP home telephone device that gives you free nationwide calling using your high-speed internet access. Amazon just started running a new promotion where you’ll get a FREE Fire TV Stick when you buy an Ooma Telo. The Ooma Telo retails for $129.99 but is currently on sale for $109. At that sale price, Amazon will throw in a Fire TV Stick, for a total savings of $60 off the combined list price of both devices.
Ooma basic service, which is included with the device purchase, includes free nationwide calling, voicemail, caller ID, and several other features. All you pay are government mandated taxes and fees, which are just shy of $4 a month for my area. You can enter your zipcode at the bottom of this page to see your exact fees. Ooma offers a premium service for $9.99 a month that includes additional features. Just add the Ooma + Fire TV Stick bundle to your cart and checkout to take advantage of this promotion.
I just gotta say that we have the basic OOMA service at home, just to have a home line. It’s a great service for our needs. We got ours at Costco in case we ever wanted to return it and have never looked back.
Thanks for chiming in with your experience. I hadn’t heard of this service before discovering this deal, so it’s good to hear a first hand opinion.
It’s even 1 more dollar cheaper during checkout!!! Comes up as “Bundle Discount: -$1.00”
Bring the total to $108! Thanks for spotting this deal! Just bought it through your provided link. So you should get the credit.
Awesome! The additional $1 discount shows up for me as well. And thanks for supporting AFTVnews with your purchase!
Some questions for Ooma users: so if I transition from an old phone line (which actually is now fiber optics) will all the old phones and phone jacks just work with Ooma? Can I buy any brand phone or multi-phone system in the future? Will the caller ID on my satellite DVR still work? Thanks?
Yes, it connects directly from my modem, then out to my router. That way it takes the bandwidth it needs to support a phone call. I’ve downloaded stuff full throttle and I’ve not had much of a drop in speed, so it doesn’t need that much. Also, there is a phone line out connection with connects to any phone line in your home and any jack connected through your house is active.
And, yes I do have my OOMA line connected directly into the back of my DirecTV receiver (HR44) and my caller ID works perfectly. We did have an issue with our house alarm, though. The ProtectionOne tech couldn’t get it working so they had to install a cellular based connection for the alarm.
As far as phones, I just use a five pack of phones I bought at Costco (Panasonics) and plugged the base in one of the jacks and put the other 4 receivers through the house. OOMA does sell one for their system with some features, but you don’t need it. My phones work and sound the same as before I got the system.
Their sales team is a joke.
Aicel: Welcome to our real-time support chat. This is Aicel, how can I help you today?
Awda Helwidit: What does your product offer that a consumer couldnt get for free elsewhere (ie: google voice/hangouts)? I mean most households have wireless routers, smartphones, and even extra old unused smartphones. So why would anyone bother with adding your useless hardware to their setup? Also, are your employers aware that the chat box is an eyesore that blocks fluid use of their website? And it doesnt even link to live assistance. This appears to be a poorly run rinky-dink operation of scammers selling overpriced hardware.
Aicel: I’ll be happy to assist you with this one Awda.
In case we get disconnected may I have your phone number please so I can call you back?
Awda Helwidit: No I don’t think so. I would rather just chat. Not too concerned. If your company’s chat software fails they just lose out. They don’t get a second chance
Good design and quality coding matter
Aicel: May I know what would you like to know about Ooma?
Awda Helwidit: What does your product offer that a consumer couldnt get for free elsewhere (ie: google voice/hangouts)?
other than an rj port
which is rather useless in 2015
Aicel: We have limited information about other services with Ooma.
Awda Helwidit: Okay, that still does not answer what your product offers that is worth 10x it’s hardware value
what is so special that people would pay for the box your firm sells?
when others offer same thing for free?
You are a salesperson….SELL ME
No wonder they are offsetting the price with a Fire Stick.
