International call is a complet fraud with ooma

Post by tonymena » Mon Aug 31, 2009 11:52 am

I love ooma for my domestic calls. But for International calls it is a disaster. I pre paid $10.00 and tried many times to connect calls to El Salvador. calls never went trough and my account was charged for every attemp to call. finally I got connected calling a land line and got charged like I were calling a cell phone which is a higher rate. I hope in the near future they could fix this problem.

I doubt this will ever be fixed. You will find a long list of complaints in the forum. Don't load any more money and ultimately you will be able to use up $10.

I use Google Voice now for international calls. Hopefully with Google Voice extensions (coming feature), one could switch to GV for international calls dialed over ooma.

for call to western Europe, Canada, Autralia, ooma prepaid is a great bargain, around 1.5/2 cent per minute, plus the convernient of direct dialing (ie 011 + nation code + phone number)

for some smaller market the rate is much higher (20-40 cent/min) with ooma. The best bet is to find some niche calling card or 'dial around'/pin less prepaid for around 5-6 cent/min

few years back, I used to buy calling card of the net, now they are flooded with fraud. I use pin less prepaid service for <5cent/min to Vietnam compaire to 22cent with ooma.

Just an FYI for anyone reading this forum and considering ooma for international calls. Our calls to Tokyo are very good quality. Haven't had a single problem connecting or with call quality. Even the fax works fine. Price is comparable with the cheapest calling cards (4.9 cents/minute including tax).
