I have been using Vonage (another Voice over IP service) for 6 years. I have been very happy with it, and the quality has been good. However at $35 per month, I couldn't help but wonder if Ooma would be comparable.
Ooma outshines Vonage in every category.
Quality is superior (in fact it is the best quality phone service I have ever used or heard), people ask me what kind of phone I'm using because I sound so clear.
Voicemail is great. I can use the Ooma device itself to check messages, I forgot how easy an old answering machine was to use compared to voicemail. I can also check messages through the online site called Ooma Lounge, and unlike vonage, I can play the messages right there, I don't have to download the sound file and they play it, very nice. Plus I can check it through any phone (including my Ooma phone) similar to standard voicemail. Easy, simple, amazing.
Ooma Lounge is quick and easy. Not as cluttered or slow like Vonage, TMobile, AT&T or Verizon. Makes it fast and easy to use, and the Call Logs show the Name right on them, which is very nice.
I've been using Ooma for 3 weeks, and don't have anything to complain about. I've told my friends and family about it, my parents are already using Ooma and they love it also. Which makes calling them crystal clear, they sound as if they are in the same room, not 6 States away!
Non of the Ooma Premier features tempt me, so I am just using the free service, and it is absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend Ooma to anybody, and everybody with High Speed Internet.
