Ooma Telo Review

Are you tired of paying outrageous prices each month for your land line phone service? If so, the Ooma Telo™ is an excellent option to save money for those who already have high-speed internet and a corded/cordless phone. In fact, the Ooma Telo™ was named the #1 phone service in the United States by Consumer Reports in May 2011!

At a product cost of only $199, the Ooma Telo™ quickly pays for itself and then phone calls are free for the life of the unit. If you are currently paying $40 per month on average for your phone company service then the first year you would save $281 (I deducted the initial cost for the unit) and thereafter you would save an additional $480 per year!

The Ooma Telo™ has numerous features that set it apart from other products including:

  • Free calling within the U.S. and low international rates
  • Ooma PureVoice™ HD Technology gives reliability and voice clarity
  • Voicemail, caller-ID, call-waiting and 911 service
  • Ability to access voice mail from any phone or web browser

It is easy to set up the Ooma Telo™ by plugging the unit into your high-speed internet connection and then into your home phone. You can then activate the service online and be free of high monthly bills from the phone company. I also like the sleek, attractive design that does not take up a lot of room.

Don’t want to give up your current phone number? With the Ooma-Telo™ you have the option to keep your current number for a one-time fee (or get a new phone number assigned for free).

Need even more options and capabilities? Check out the Ooma Premier™ service upgrade that is availability for additional convenience, mobility and privacy.

You are invited to visit the Ooma Telo™ website to learn more about this product and to purchase your unit and accessories. It is also available at many leading retailers including Best Buy, Sears, Costco, Target (online), (online) and Walmart (online).
