Good call. One thing though, if you are at home and call any number you think is supposed to be toll free and you get the "you have xxx minutes" message, that's the sign to hang up.

Using home Ooma, I found the following:

Of the 2 "Verify your long distance" numbers,

700-555-4141 <-- "your call can not be completed" - good but still a problem with Ooma mobile app.
your area code-700-4141 <-- tried a couple of area codes and got busy signal - that's good with me

Ok, it should be fixed in the Ooma Mobile case as well (when dialing you'll hear ringback then a disconnect).

That call being my first, I haven't realized that in time. When exactly does the paid time start, do you know?

Hanging up anytime during the minutes announcement means the connection doesn't actually happen so won't be charged. In cases, international call for example, where there is ringing involved too, hanging up anytime before the other end answers also will not incur any charges.

Confirming. The ringback was almost "continuous ring" blacklist feature like :)
