From now on please ask support to set RTP_USE_ULAW to 1 in the Info service under Services.
Today, I reached out to Support via both Chat and calling the "Escalation" number they provided me. Both we useless and a waste of my time. Both indicated that they could not help me. Chat said to call. I called. When I spoke to a Representative he checked my Telo and found no issues. At this point I asked if he could please check the variable called: RTP_USE_ULAW and tell me what this is set to in my Service. He responded with that this is for Faxing. I replied saying that this sets the audio codec to G.711 for both in/out bound calls. I ask if he could tell me what this is set to in Service. He rudely replied that I will need to send this to Level 2 and someone will return my call with 24 hours.
Not really great Customer Service...
I then asked to speak with a Supervisor. The Representative said "Fine" and transferred me. After what was more than 10 minutes a woman answered and asked me for a Reference Number. The previous Representative never provided me with one. She then asked for my phone number associated with my account and looked up my information. I asked if she was a Supervisor which she replied: "No, I'm a Level 2 Tech".
Wow, that was a quick 24 hours.
The Level 2 Tech went through and looked at my setup and could find nothing wrong as well as ran a line test which was all good. At this point I asked what the variable RTP_USE_ULAW was set to in my system. She said it was off. I informed her of this message thread and that others who have reported the same issue as mine: calls cutting in and out as well as the other party not hearing my side of the call. I told her that people have had success with setting this to ON or 1.
She set the variable and I rebooted my Telo. I called my wife who was threating to pay the money and go back to a land line phone since Ooma was unusable. She said that the call quality was great. The best it has been in a long time.
So after about an hour and dealing with 3 different people at Ooma I finally have G.711 set and it appear to be better. Only time will tell if this is the magic bullet.
Thanks for your help.
I've tried several times through chat and they insist I need to speak with a customer service agent
