One of my favorite features on Ooma is the ability to receive voicemail via e-mail. Not only does Ooma alert you via e-mail when you have a new voicemail, but it has the option to e-mail the voicemail message itself as an MP3. I did end up upgrading to Ooma Premier service, and it looks like the “attach file” feature is only available in Premier. Even so, when you first get the Ooma, you should try this feature out during your free Premier trial period.
To enable this feature, go to your Preferences > Voicemail, and see the Voicemail Notifications area:
After saving your changes, all of your voicemails from now on will be e-mailed to you. If you elect to receive e-mails on your phone, it makes it amazingly easy to check your voicemail when away from your Ooma hub.
On the iPhone, simply click the e-mail attachment, and it will open up the voicemail file in the iPhone quicktime player:
Could not be easier!
