    Do you mean Ooma? It is VoIP. The technology allows you to make telephone calls over your DSL or cable Internet service. I think you will need about 700kb up on your Internet connection to use it. It can replace your landline. However, if you lose your Internet connection you will not be able to make calls. This will not happen to a landline because it has its own power.

    In aggregate the Amazon customer reviews can be helpful.

    sorry I don't have time to read this or make any sense, and I don't expect I would understand it anyway, but I didn't want to lose the link. I think there is a difference between Uma and Ooma. This is the kind of thing I got inmy first search, made me think it is wireless and I might be able to use it with my iphone, instead of paying for the ridiculous monthly service that I don't use because I haven't really figured out how to use it it yet and really need just voic activated phone right now.

    Does anyone know the difference between ooma, with the equipment upward of $100, and magic jack plus, at $20 a year?

    If you're looking for a VOIP, I researched it and went with NetTalk Duo back in Nov. http://www.nettalk.com/ It has better reviews than MajicJack and is only $29.95 a year, just $10 more than MJ, though it'll cost $49.95 to start since you're buying the equipment. Yes, I'm happy with it. It has had a couple of dropped calls but to compare; it is better sound quality and more reliable than a typical cell phone connection. And they've added features since I got mine.

    The other more expensive services, Ooma and Vonage are certainly not worth the extra cost IMO.
