Can I call home, if I have OOMA Mobile?

Post by robm15 » Sun Jan 09, 2011 2:30 pm

I sent in a question to the OOMA tech support, and was surprised by the answer I received. I asked if I could call home on my Android phone using OOMA mobile?

The answer I received back was no, I can not call to my OOMA home number from OOMA mobile on my cell phone since both share the same number.

Is this the experience of those with OOMA mobile on their Android or Apple iOS phone?

Murphy is right. This was a decision ooma made when they came out with the app initially. They felt it was more useful to enable calling home.
