Headset Jack on Future Handsets

Post by dpierce » Sun Jul 14, 2019 2:32 am

I like that the HD2's had a headset jack. I upgraded all but one handset to HD3's but had to keep one HD2 for the headset jack alone. Please add the headset jack back any future HD4 handset; if it's not to much trouble. The removal of the jack is the only thing I dislike about the HD3's. Thank you.

+1

I use Panasonic 2-line phones and they have headset jacks.

Yes, I really hated giving up my Panasonic phones when going all Ooma for the Premier membership benifits. I looked at the 2-line Panasonic's after discovering I couldn't live without the headset jack, but figured I'd just keep one HD2 (with the jack) and save the money. If it weren't for the headset jack fiasco Ooma created for no good reason, I'd purchase yet another HD3. Ooma missed out on that $50, so I'm sure others have done the same. Panasonic systems with four phones for half the price of Ooma's is another sticking point of course. Anyway, thanks for the +1. I hope there are others who'll chime in here and get our next Ooma HD4 handset engineers\designers attention.

+1 / Mod parent up. I need to have both hands on the computer while on a call. I'm in an environment where use of speakerphone is very much discouraged. Like "on your quarterly reviews" kinda discouraged.

I think OOMA is really missing out on an untapped market here.
They need to make a simple HD4 handset that can easily pair with existing bluetooth headsets.
This would push land line technology into a more modern and usable technology, especially with the extreme WFH going on due to Covid-19.
