OfficeMax deal has free shipping, Ooma.com charges for shipping but possibly no sales tax, Costco deal includes wifi adapter but requires submitting rebate

Reminds me of an old David Letterman line: "Ooma, Oprah. Oprah, Ooma."
<----- Slow ride. Take it easy.

I've seen the Ooma commercials, they're cute. :) What makes this better than Magicjack Plus? I paid less for my equipment, that also plugs into my router, no computer needed. I ported my number for $20 and I think it's $10/yr to use my number. I paid $69 for 5 years of service. Works great. Is this $99 every year? Or $9.99/mo?

Basic plan is free (but have to pay fed/state/local taxes & fees, which varies but is around $3-$5 a month) Premium plan is $10/month.

Dunno if truly better or not. Supposedly it has better sound quality and requires less bandwidth than MagicJack. I know the $10/month plan has a ton of features, including voicemail, call screening, and a crowd source blacklist that will block callers that have been identified as spammers/scammers.  And I like that you are able to have multiple numbers ring the unit.  That being said, I've read comparison reviews that swing both ways. 

The Costco one is tempting because it includes adapter to hook Ooma up to wireless network.

My big problem is that DSL here will sometimes completely drop out for a few seconds. Happens at least once a day, which would disconnect any phone call that is occurring.

I'd say if MagicJack is working well for you, dont switch.

Thanks for the 4-1-1.  :) We hardly ever use a home phone, but it does come in handy on occasion. And MJ is working fine for us.
