Hello. I am deployed in Iraq and I am trying to call home to my family on the OOMA phone line in our house in the United States. When I call my OOMA line on my cell phone it gives me the annoying recording "The person you have called cannot receive phone calls from private numbers".

With my Iraqi cell Phone, I am able to call mobile phones in the the united states without any problems. I can also call land lines. Normally when calling the united states from my cell I just use 001 + area code + phone number and that works fine.

Is there any option in OOMA so it doesn't try to block anonymous callers? Or if not, is here some other way so I can make myself identified.

You want to go to and under Preferences, Privacy, uncheck the "Enable Anonymous Call Block."

Click Save and wait 5 minutes to have it take effect. Then you should be able to call.
