Making calls from Germany

Post by jdkayaz » Sat Feb 11, 2012 1:02 pm

If I connect my Ooma to the internet in Germany, and then call any phone number in the United States, will Ooma recognize the call as one initiated within the United States?

I don't think Ooma bothers to figure out where you are located. Your Telo talks to Ooma's servers over the Internet, and it's immaterial where the Telo is physically situated.

We made calls from China and our Ooma Telo though it was in the USA at our home address, the address that is entered in our My Ooma profile.

The one thing that you have to remember is to not call 911 when at a location in the world that is not your home address. Otherwise you may be in Germany, but the ambulance, police, and fire departments will be at the address that you entered in your My Ooma profile.

Well, it's always nice to have an ambiance at home, but an unneeded ambulance can be an inconvenience.
