I was at Sears in Indiana Pa. today. They have 4 on the shelf clearanced ticket at $109.97.


I went to get a gift card for Amazon to buy a Nettalk Duo. The Ooma would be a better value but my research shows it is not likely to work with my Replay TV modem. I know Magic Jack doesn't work & Google Voice doesn't work. I had Nettalk last year and it worked ok.

Just curious, what makes Ooma the better value? When you divide the nettalk annual cost over 12 months, don't they both cost around $3+ a month for similar features?

Costco will have this for $99 BF sale.

Already $99 in stores, just saw it there this morning.

It's $96 and change at Sears now. I have two, no need for any more, or I'd jump on it.

Ooma in my zip would be $4.76 a month. Nettalk would be $3.50.

In actual costs the Ooma is more all the way around. I guess the only thing that realy makes it a better value is the resale value of the equipment and the option for upgraded services.

A used Nettalk Duo isn't really worth anything because the year of service after the first year costs about the same as a new unit ($37.26 after taxes and fees). If you let your service lapse then there is also a $4.99 reactivation fee. My total was going to be $42.45 (29.99 + 1.67 + 2.10 + 3.38 + .07 + .25 + 4.99) and a new unit from Amazon is $42, and I can get 12% in perks by buying Amazon gift card.

I never have an experience with NetTalk so can't speak to it's call quality, drop calls, down time etc but I've been using ooma for three years now and the call quality and availability is rock solid. I can't recall the last time we had no phone service due to ooma's fault.
