Log into your my.ooma.com account and select Preferences.
Do you see Mobile in the left column?


Yes, but it says I have to add funds in order to use it? So I pay $9.99 for the app and still pay per minute? Am I reading this correctly?

There must be funds in your account so that if you exceed 250 minutes they can charge you for them.

Just for clarification - you only get 250 minutes included if you have a Premier subscription. You don't have to have Premier, but then all calls are 1.9 cents per minute.

However, you have to add at least $10 to your Prepaid account on my.ooma regardless of your Account service level (Premier, Core, Basic).

Note that Ooma Mobile to Ooma calls are free, so for a one time charge of $19.99 you can call home to your Ooma or to friends and family with Ooma.

My cell phone carrier, Verizon, allows always-free calls to my list of up-to-ten "Friends and Family" numbers, so for me (and anyone else whose carrier provides something similar) that ain't no kind of bargain. ;)

Plus, if you add your Google Voice number as one of those up-to-ten "Friends and Family" numbers, you can make unlimited calls to anyone in the U.S. (continental 48 states). And you pay your cell phone carrier, Verizon, a lot of money every month for that bargain. What, at least $89.99 per month for a two line family plan plus taxes and fees (less any employee discount). And if you want a "smart" phone, it's another $9.99 or $29.99 plus taxes and fees for a data plan. That's no bargain to me. ;)

Previously, I was paying about $35 per month to AT&T for pretty basic phone service (50 local calls per month and caller id with name). My current monthly phone bill is a whopping $0 per month.

I also have a cell phone for when I'm not at home or work or around an accessible Wifi hotspot, where I can use the Ooma app on my iPod. It's a prepaid cell phone which uses Verizon service and costs me $10 every 120 days (about $2.50 per month).

I am trying to get a low cost prepaid cell phone, but the refill of Verizon prepaid expires in 30 days..

iPhone app is now on iTunes. So far works great on wifi and pretty good on 3G s's long as your not driving around losing good 3G reception.

I have to pay $10 for the app and only get 250 minutes, if I have the Premier service. If not then I have to pay 1.9 cents per minute. I don't have the Premier service, so I am not seeing a good deal for me with this app. My night and weekend long distance calls are free on my iPhone now. And free anytime I call any other AT&T user.
