You can call either one using the app. App calls to any Ooma number is free; doesn't even eat into your 250 free minutes/month that premier folks get.

Let me see if I understand you...I can call from ooma mobile using my primary phone number and dail that same number and it will ring and answer at my home?

I wouldn't have expected that to work, that's great if that is the case.

Are you speaking from experience?

Yes, it works. Ooma made a decision that it would be most useful to be able to call home (for overeas traveler for example using wifi, call home for free).

That's great, wish Ooma would put that info in the FAQ section for the mobile app!

Going to give the mobile app a try next week ...One more thing will it work in reverse, say calling from home to mobile, assuming it would?
