I hope that you have updated your profile to show your actual address as the one you have in China. It is important for E911 to have a current and accurate service address.FeiGeiWay wrote:I live in china, so I don't need or want to pay the $3-$4 local tax on the Ooma. I registered a Los Angeles address but live in China. How do I set it so that I don't have to pay the 911 tax? I don't need or want to call 911.

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
True, but if he has a US based service address listed, and someone at his home in China accidentally (or not) dials 911, guess where the police and fire trucks show up. I think Ooma is mandated by law to offer 911.Ein wrote:He doesn't want the 911 feature, besides it doesn't work in China.
It might ring a 911 call enter here in the U.S. But who knows?
Not where I live. Calls to 911 that are hung up or even explained as mistaken still get a visit from the police. Do it repeatedly and you get fined.Ein wrote:Police and fire truck don't show up without verification.
Not true in two places that I've lived or live in - Madison, WI (i.e. Dane County, WI) and Metairie, LA (Jefferson Parish, LA).Ein wrote: Police and fire truck don't show up without verification.
