    Ooma now has a good product for those of you wanting a home phone but not having any luck with Straight Talk

    https://www.ooma.com/home-phone-service/phone-genie/

    Sells for $50 at my local Walmart. Base plan costs $11.99 a month + taxes and fees. Comes with 500MB of data on the hotspot and can be expanded with an additional fees. Runs on the Sprint LTE network and comes with all the same features as a regular Ooma.

    That is something new, as a regular Ooma is VoIP requiring a decent Internet connection. Check a regular Sprint coverage map though, as the Ooma map is optimistic.

    That sounds like a good plan. There is an issue where I live. There is no Sprint coverage.

    Does the T2000 pass DTMF inbound?
    My biggest issue with the ZTE 723 is that it does not. I can send DTMF fine so IVR's and such work fine but it seems to mute DTMF inbound so i can't control my alarm panel or log in to my answering machine.

    I tested this for someone who contacted me privately using an old answering machine. It worked fine. I was able to dial in to the answering machine connected to my T2000 using my cell and pick up messages and use other commands with the answering machine. It actually worked better than I expected.

    I just seen that Ooma Home Phone device. I think their coverage map on the box is very wrong compared to their web site. If you want to know why I say this, just look at west central Iowa part of maps. So someone could buy the Ooma device thinking it will work, but it will not work tho.

    Would not think a coverage map on the box would be detailed enough to see much. The Ooma website and Sprint maps pretty much agree for the are you mentioned. Does it say on the box the service is Sprint? Would they know at Walmart how Sprint coverage is there?

    I have a photo of the box, but not a good one of the map tho. No where on the box says Sprint that I can find. All it says is to check coverage on their web site.

    The carrier information is in an Ooma FAQ. I could not find it in a Google search, and doubt anyone at Walmart would know. Yes, not much help to the consumer.

    I don't know if you can see the little map in the corner, but if you look at Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas area, I would think that area is big enough to show on the map. There might be a few other areas, but I seen those area mainly.

    One thing different with the Ooma is it has a separate cell signal receiver from the base station. This would seem to allow you to place the receiver is the best signal location, while placing the base station in a more convenient location. Not sure how they communicate, or what the range is.
