which calling card can be used with ooma?

Post by fengyuwuzu » Sat Apr 24, 2010 9:59 pm

I am not sure if this is a good place to ask such questions, as OOMA does not want its users to use calling cards to make international calls. But whereelse can I ask?

ooma charges too much for international calls, so can any one recommend a calling card that can be used with ooma?

Thanks for sharing.

I don't think ooma minds. I use this place (lots of choices) when I need one and has worked out pretty good.

which one are you using now?
I do not want to buy one and then find out ooma blocks it.
THis happened last time when I bought a cybercalling card.

It all depends on which country you call the most. My wife calls Taiwan a lot so I've been buying the Spring card and it works fine with ooma with the access numbers that it has.
