Save $$ with Ooma: Home phone for only $109 up front and then just $5/mo for taxes/911 fees. http://www3.ooma.com/refer-a-friend/?referral_code=WIP1981 …
So I ordered up the hardware .. it took a week to arrive.
After it arrived, I took 15 minutes to register it online and and enter my payment info/911 address location information. I select my new number and then declined the 'premier' service offer - although it is half the cost of the comparable vonage service - as I only wanted a landline replacement.
Installed the ooma app on my cell phone as well. Calls to my new phone now also ring on my cell whenever I am near wifi (most always). And I can call out on my cell via wifi as if from my new ooma number. Nice
Bottom line: My telco cost per month now comes to just under $5 per month (for 911 fees and tax). Even nicer!
