Additional Details about Ooma Office

30 days risk free, and no contracts. While Ooma Office does not offer a free trial, if you decide it’s not for you in the first 30 days, you can get a refund, no questions asked. And Ooma does not require a long-term contract, so you aren’t locked in.

Mobile calling. In order to make phone calls with Ooma from your mobile phone (so that your business phone number shows up in caller ID), you will need to use the Ooma app.

Not exactly a virtual receptionist. Ooma calls one of its features Virtual Receptionist, but it’s not the same as the other virtual receptionists we’ve reviewed. There is no person who picks up the phone for incoming calls. Instead, Ooma’s Virtual Receptionist feature allows you to “automate how you manage incoming calls” by creating phone trees and routing calls. Which might be something you want even though we usually use virtual receptionist to mean something else.
