Some answers:
It can do whole home, Plug it in to the main port where the phone line comes in. Where the Bell or Rogers connects.
You can connect a Fax to it
I think it can do alarm monitoring, they also offer some alarm monitoring service.

Also offers an app to let you use your home number while travelling. I've used this app a couple of times to make urgent calls while travelling.

How is FreePhoneLine? I see a one-time cost of ~$200 with the VoIP Unlock key, phone transfer, and the ATA module. Any recommendations on ATA adapters? I've been with Bell/Rogers for far too long, and they force us to bundle TV as home-phone and Internet are more expensive themselves -_-

It seems like the Ooma doesn't include Canada calling with the Free-tier

Ooma service is up to $5 a month now (I believe - honestly I've 'set it and forget it' when it comes to this).

Service is incredibly clear, this is landline style quality, never an issue (unless the power goes out - use a cell phone).

My condo said the front door system doesn't work without landline - I said okay, let's try. It works.

For me it's peace of mind to give out my "home phone" number as opposed to my personal cell phone, which I cannot always answer at work.

+1 for Ooma. Have had it for years now.

Requires an Ethernet connection and for your cordless phone base station to be plugged in OR in your basement where the telephone connection comes in.

The product is incredibly simple, voice quality is great, and the app is a bonus for outbound calling when you’re travelling.

I’ve got my ooma router plugged into one of my mesh connections.

If Ooma ever decides to go rogue, will I be able to transfer out my number? My parents have been using the same number for 10+ years and I'd hate if they lost it. Hence the reason why we have been with the same voip provider for 6+ years paying $30 + tax. Been debating between this and Fongo.. not sure which route to take.

Been using Freephoneline with an ATA adapter for several (5+) years now. The one time paid VOIP unlock key was $79, but now is $99. Existing phone number transfer was $25, which I didn't go for. The Obi ATA box was around $40. Been pretty happy, works 95% of the time......and then need to screw around a bit to get it going again (usually power cycling fixes issues).

If I stand correct you can make free phone calls over wifi via the app when you travel in foreign country?

Ooma worked with my alarm system when I had it.

Been using Ooma for years. Never had an issue. I like how I can use their phone app to make calls and check voicemails.
There's a sucker born every minute.

+1 For Ooma as well. I set it up with the premier service years ago and never looked back. Works out to much, MUCH cheaper than having Bell or Rogers or Cogeco who were charging $54.95 for a home phone with their internet package.... for a VOIP phone line!! With the 3 months of the premium service I'd say this is a really good deal.

Porting a number over is $40.
If you subscribe to the premier plan, it's $120/year and includes a one time number port.

After the first year, you can cancel the premier plan and just pay $5/month for the "basic" plan.

Yes, that's correct. You can make, and receive calls over wifi (or with data) through the app.

It can work with an alarm system:
  • but you have to disable the Ooma sound (prior to the dial tone) in the settings online. To do that you have to set the device to Alarm system mode. Login to you Ooma account and go to Preferences->Devices->Click on the little gear under the Ooma and change it to Alarm Mode instead of Phone/Fax mode.
  • You also have to disconnect the phone line coming from the telco into the alarm/house so you don't have two things trying to send the dial tone. What I did was splice a phone cord and connected the Ooma where I disconnected it from Bell.
  • If you don't have an alarm system you can just plug the Ooma into any phone jack in the house but still disconnect the phone line coming in.
It works great. Sound quality is the same as a land line. Wish I used it more, its more for emergencies in our house.

I have been using this for many years. Excellent price and equipment. Premier plan allows you two lines/numbers.

voip.ms is cheaper and immensely more powerful (you can set up IVRs, ring groups, calling rules, etc). That being said it takes a bit more effort to set up - but worth it IMO.

Ooma is ok. It's much easier to setup than others less expansive voip systems so it's a good way to get used to voip. I'm not impressed by the sound quality. In my city, they have a 311 number which doesn't work. Bear in mind that they will most probably charge you mouthly extra fees. I have premium and the fees are almost 5$/mouth. Basic is not expansive but you don't have caller ID (and what comes with it) and other extras. Doesn,t work with power outage except if all your internet gear is on a battery powerbar (and assuming internet is not down in your area). There is no service in french except the information website. I'll rate it 6/10.
Pourquoi pas?
