Thanks to everyone who came out tonight. I enjoyed talking about Ooma and VoIP.

I've attached the PowerPoint presentation that Ooma marketing sent me. It's .pptx but LibreOffice Impress should open it.

In addition, they have several videos on their YouTube channel.

Ooma's website is at

And the referral offer I mentioned is this:

You still have a few days to encourage your friends and family to switch to Ooma, the #1 ranked home phone service five years in a row. If they buy now, they'll get a brand new Ooma Telo™ for the special price of just CDN$109.99 plus FREE shipping!

You'll receive CDN$20 in rewards for each purchase that is made with your referral code! Choose between Amazon® or Best Buy® gift cards, or have your rewards posted directly to your credit card.

Don't pass up on an offer this good. Your friends and family will love the opportunity to save up to CDN$500 per year on home phone service!

Hurry, this offer ends May 30th, 2016!


Referral Code REW1005

(If that referral code is in fact not specific to me, my phone number that's attached to the Ooma account is […]. That should identify me. So you get a good deal on the Ooma base system, and I get fame and glory, and Wifeski gets $20 to spend at BestBuy...)

Also... one thing I forgot to mention.. during the number porting waiting period (2-3 weeks) they assigned me a temporary phone number. Those of you who plan on running a business with Ooma should see what your options are if this is a problem.
