Since OOMA does not allow me to use any calling card, and OOMA charged much more than the rate it listed, I want to find an alternative for international calls. any suggestions?

Currently I am using a free PC-2-phone software, quality is good but each time only 3 minutes allowed, and I have to keep dial each 3 minutes. Does any one know a free PC-2-phone software that one can use for longer time each time?

I am not aware you are unable to use calling cards, I have seen other people resort to calling cards becuase of connection issues trying to use Ooma for international.

Why do you say your unable to use calling cards, what happens when you try to use them?

you can still use phone cards with ooma. All you have to do is to dial the toll free number ( or local access number) and then enter your PIN and then phone number as usual. It should work. I have been using phone cards with ooma for the last eight since the calling through ooma is expensive. And ooma doesn't have any international calling plans for core customers.

I am using www.localphone.com for international calls. Numbers you dial from and to needed to be registered on the web site under your account. Then you call a local number to reach the phone you want to call. The rate is really cheap and you can deposit as little as $1 to try it out.

I use google voice.
google voice has very competive rate with good voice quality.

OOMA is too expensive for international calls and their listed rate has hidden fee as you know.
I don't think it's very honest way to advertise but it's OOMA's way.
Their 500 mins for $5 using preminum service is joke to someone like me.

just simply use other VOIP for international calls.
OOMA make you feel like you use calling cards anyway with the terrible announcements.

I guess OOMA does not want to have profit from international calls.

If you have Google Voice, you might find this thread on how to make free inbound AND outbound domestic calls. It also explains international calling pretty nicely.
