Ooma, Oprah… Oprah—ah, forget them. Instead of being a butt of some lame joke, this Ooma allows you to make free calls. Score!
Just hook the Ooma Hub in between your phone and your web connection and it makes phone magic.
Other features include an “instant second line,” three-way conferencing, enhanced call waiting, and everywhere access to voicemail.
The hub comes in two flavors: Landline or non-landline. However, the latter doesn’t have traditional 911 support.
Don’t start looking for your Silician grandma’s number; the service is only free within the U.S. If you want to go international, you can prepay for that privilege in the Online Ooma Lounge. Also, it may be free, but it ain’t cheap—the Hub costs $399.
