Thank you for confirming that, I was hoping that wasn't the case!thunderbird wrote:You can use first generation Ooma Telo handsets with the Omoa Telo, or you can use second generation HD2 handsets with the Ooma Telo, but you can't use both the old and new handsets registered to Ooma Telo, at the same time.skymom wrote:Hi, I'm confused with the statement that these new products aren't compatible with the original Telo Handset. What does that mean? Does it mean that I can't use both this new handset and my original telo handset with my Telo system? I was hoping to add the new handset as an added handset, not a replacement.
The old Ooma Telo handsets haven't been maufactured for some time. At least at first, until a lot of HD2 handsets get to be out there, the price for the old Ooma Telo handsets may be high (check E-bay). But later I would expect to see the old used Ooma Telo handsets selling very cheeply???run4beer wrote:Well looks like I won't be buying a new handset after all. My 1st Gen handset works fine. I am in the market to add additional handsets, since my Uniden system is now about 9 years old and more trouble than it's worth. However, since I can't use my 1st gen handset with the new one, I guess I'll just buy a standard DECT set from Costco with 3 - 5 extensions for the same price. Too bad.
Any hands-on experience to report?"...If your phone cannot register to your Telo, you might have a first-generation Ooma Telo Handset and your Telo is running in a mode that does not support the new Ooma HD2 Handset. Dial from a phone connected directly to the Telo, wait for your Telo to reboot and then try again..."
Well, that S-U-X.lbmofo wrote:Yes, either or.
