Best gadget 2008 - ooma

The best gadget I bought in 2008 is ooma.

Ooma is a VoIP phone that doesn't charge monthly subscription fees. I used to pay $27.95 a month for a local only land line + caller id + other government fees and taxes. Now I pay zero and get unlimited domestic calls within US. I am looking to recoupe the cost in about 9 months.

If you need to make oversea calls, you can purchase credit from ooma. The cost is comparable to skype.

If 911 support is important to you. According to, ooma supports e911.

I am very happy with ooma. Setup is straightforward; sound quality is great; and virtual voice mail allows me to listen to voice mails remotely.
