For 6 months now we have not been paying a telephone bill and yet we have a land line. How? We use Ooma. Ooma is a telephone system that you buy which utilizes your internet to give you free phone service. I know there are many free or cheap phone services out there and my in-laws have tried each and every one and they like the best Ooma. So a year long positive service experience we jumped on board and have been very happy. Here is why Ooma is better than other phone services in my opinion. First you buy a box instead of phones. The box doubles as an answering machine and then any phone you have that plugs into a phone jack will work with Ooma. Every time I get a message at home I get a text on my cell phone then I can listen to my messages from anywhere for free. You can customize your Ooma account so it will show up properly in other people’s caller ID and it works for free local and long distance phone calls. The down side, the initial investment is around $250 for the box but you never pay another penny. Right now on Amazon Ooma Telo Free Home Phone Service box is on sale for $199.99 plus free shipping. The other drawback is if your internet goes down so does your phone. The initial investment may sound steep but if it is broken down over a year that is only $17 a month and after that your phone is free for the rest of your life. Like I said we have had Ooma for 6 months and are very happy with it.
