Interesting that this comes up today. My Vonage service is up for renewal soon and I was considering changing to the Telo.
Then I looked at the cost. Note: this is NOT "free". There's a bunch of early adopters that get free basic Telo service, but new customers aren't getting that deal. You're paying a monthly fee that's supposedly for taxes, etc.
So, you can get the basic service for less than $10 per month in taxes. But basic is, well, basic.
You don't get caller ID with name (all you see is a phone number) unless you opt into Premier at another $10 per month. Premier also gets you the "personal blacklist" that allows you to permanently drop annoying telemarketers, so perhaps it's a worthwhile investment. But it's not a super deal compared to Vonage.
And, read the Amazon reviews. Their customer service is apparently pretty horrid, even discounting for the type of person that hooks this up to their 64K IDSL line and can't understand why the call quality is bad. Note: this, like Vonage, requires at least a 250 KBPS connection if you're going to have reliable service, unless you're willing to disconnect everything else in the house while you make phone calls.
Woot! Now 100+ woots for me!
That's 87 woots (Including Twelve Bats On Crack!), 12 Sellout.woots, 8 wine.woots and 4 kids.woots, and finally, 2 shirt.woots!

I currently have four phones connected to the land line. Will I still have four, or only the one connected to the Ooma device?
As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.
