[Amazon.ca] Ooma Telo Home Phone Service Bundle $110 + $5/$10 per month. Save thousands of $$$ in the next 10 years

I think the regular price is $130.

It's time to get rid of your $40, $50, $60 (and more) Bell & others monthly land line bill.

The monthly fee is $5 to $15 depending on what you want.

EDIT August 21: price of $110 only at Amazon.ca

I finally convinced my parents to switch to VoIP. I went with Fongo but Ooma was on my list and I could've picked either. I think Fongo was a bit cheaper up front. My dad was paying $85/month to Rogers!!!

I rarely use the home phone but recently had multiple calls of 30 minutes+, only once for a few seconds I experienced some voice issues but otherwise it was crystal clear. The Fongo adapter is wired through ethernet.
Be a nice person and enjoy life

$85 per month! Wow! Astonished Face

I personally use VoIP.ms but I read that Ooma is easier to set-up; kind of just plug and play.
And as long as you have a good Internet connection, you can't tell the difference between an old traditional land line and VoIP like Ooma (or VoIP.ms)

Make the calculations.
How much do you pay now per month versus what you would pay with Ooma (or any other VoIP service)?

Take your father for example at $85 per month versus even the premium Ooma service at $15 per month.
That's a $70 monthly saving!
That's $840 yearly!!
$8,400 in ten years!!!

The important thing is to make the move.
How much will you pay this year to Bell, Vidéotron, etc. if you DON'T make the move?
And next year...
And next year...
And next year...

Probably always a deal.

I have Ooma and haven't looked back. Best rogers could do was $37 for a home phone so not even close to what I'm paying now which is roughly ~$13 with Ooma premium

Yeah, no kidding I don't even pay $85 for my cellphone. His total Rogers bill was $180 and they wanted to increase it to $225/month so I cancelled TV and phone and retentions called me back to offer internet for half the previous price. Before cancelling I tried negotiating and the best they could do was $220 down from $225. Robbers.

I wanted Fongo or Ooma for ease of setup and customer service so that if something goes wrong my parents can fix it with help. VoIP.ms would be too challenging for them.

Somebody just downvoted "Not a good price" Face With Tears Of Joy

I guess saving thousands of dollars ain't enough. Face With Tears Of Joy

Wait 3 months for a better price on Black Friday, save $20.
Pay Bell 3 extra months for nothing, lose > $100.
Yeah, indeed, this deal is not at a good price. Face With Tears Of Joy

Using VOIP at my parent's place with some Chinese company. Paying 8.99 a month. Who needs Bell/Rogers?

$85/month to Rogers for a residential land line? Seriously? Robbers

Switched over to Ooma from Roger's when it was recently on sale at Costco. Was paying $35/mth with Roger's to use the landline maybe for an hour every month. Made the switch and haven't looked back. Using the premium service and only regret that we didn't switch sooner. Only issue was the initial porting over the phone number. Other than that, highly recommend Thumbs Up Sign

The other alternative is to get an Obihai box, pay for a SIP code from freephoneline.ca, and literally never pay a phone bill ever again.

Even the basic version of ooma ($5/month) offers call display, call waiting, voicemail, etc. From their website, you can check all previous incoming and outgoing call history. I would never go back to Bhell or Robbers.

Note that if you don't have a good internet connection (or perhaps a crappy router) the quality can be so terrible as to be unusable.
I have family members that use this. Until they upgraded their internet package recently (from 30mbps to 500mbps.. yes, you'd think 30mbps would be sufficient for voice calls?) it was so horrible I'd always call their cell phones instead.
