I know this has been discussed regarding the Ooma voice line, and realize the issues involved. But I have not seen this discussed in the context of the Ooma smartphone app.
Background - Long time Ooma customer, but I decided to try magicJack with a new phone number, keeping the Ooma service. After using magicJack for a while, I was not satisfied with magicJack for two reasons: 1) Calls often dropped after 30 minutes. This might be due to the magicGo device and not the network. 2) The magicJack call blocking and spam prevention are significantly inferior to Ooma’s features. So I am staying with Ooma.
But one feature of the magicJack iPhone app that works very well is the ability to send and receive SMS from other mobile phones. I can’t imagine it would be too difficult for Ooma to add this capability to their app and I think it would fill a big hole in the service: Being able to give out 1 number: at home receiving the call using Ooma Telo or other device, mobile using the call forwarding to your mobile phone, and mobile receiving and sending SMS using the Ooma app.
