Ooma will be forced to support it soon. Congress passed a law and Trump will almost certainly sign it. It gives the FCC more authority to go after robocalls.

I don't know. The current administration has a history of removing regulation, rather than imposing new stuff. Per the article I posted here:

https://www.ooma.com/forums/viewtopic.p ... c1#p145211

"It remains uncertain whether the proposals will stem the flood of robocalls, and how much, if anything, consumers will pay for call-blocking services. FCC chairman Ajit Pai said the proposals “would likely greatly increase adoption” of call-blocking technology.

He encouraged phone companies to provide the service free, noting that fewer robocalls would also mean fewer complaints from customers and less spam traffic on their networks. But he stopped short of proposing to mandate that the services be free. He also said the proposals are designed to ensure emergency calls wouldn’t be blocked."

Doesn't sound like they are hell-bent on mandating the tech be applied. & my take was it will take some time for the tech to mature & the IEEE piece implies the same. Still, it sounds nice.

This is a user to user forum. Ooma support is not here. Occasionally an Ooma moderator will respond.
This is the Suggestions section of the forum. I hope someone from Ooma is monitoring this section.

I get anywhere between 1 and 4 calls per day that should blocked by the Do Not Call list on my Ooma home phone number. Usually, I get a recorded message that is 10 or so seconds of silence before the caller disconnects. This so annoying that I am considering dropping my Ooma account and use only our cell phones.

Out of curiosity, are you reporting any of the junk calls (i.e create NMR acc't, report #s; add #'s to your personal block list; add CID strings to your personal block list)? Cutting down on phone SPAM requires a certain amount of user interaction to be effective.
