How to Call China from the U.S.

The process of making an international call is easy.

To call China, you can use either your Ooma Telo-connected home phone or the Ooma Mobile app.

  • First, to exit the U.S. phone system, dial 011.
  • Then dial China’s country code: 86.
  • Next, dial the area code, which can be 2 to 4 digits.
    • For example:
    • Beijing - 10
    • Shanghai - 21
    • Tianjin - 22
    • Mobile phones - 13, 140, 153 or 159

  • Then dial the local phone number, which is between 6 and 8 digits.

When calling with the mobile app, your call will not use any of the minutes from your mobile phone plan. Instead, the call will be routed over Wi-Fi or the 3G network. If you’re trying to minimize your data usage, seek out a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Whether you’re spending hours and hours talking to China or just a few minutes here and there, Ooma Telo makes it easy. If you have any questions, get in touch with one of our salespeople via https://support.ooma.com.

International Calling to China

You may think international phone calls are expensive and complicated. But when you use Ooma Telo, it’s affordable and easy.

When using Ooma’s Basic Service or Premier Service, the rate to call China is just $0.025 per minute for landlines, $0.023 per minute for cell phones in area codes 153 and 159, and $0.025 per minute for cell phones in the 13 and 140 area codes. So a one-hour phone call would cost about $1.50. Using Basic Service’s pay-as-you-go format, the cost for the calls will be deducted from your prepaid account, while with Premier Service, the charges are added in addition to the $9.99 monthly fee.

While Basic Service has no monthly fee for crystal-clear nationwide calling, Premier Service offers a whole host of additional features for a low monthly charge. For example, Premier Service customers get powerful call-blocking tools to protect them against telemarketers and robocalls, as well as an Instant Second LineTM for making and receiving calls when your primary line is in use, the Ooma Mobile app for making calls from your mobile phone anywhere you are, voicemail access through email and text notifications, free unlimited calling to Canada and Mexico, plus many others that Basic Service doesn’t provide.

Ooma’s rates are significantly lower than its competitors. Verizon’s standard per-minute rate is $2.49, and its value plan rate is $0.13 per minute for landline calls and $0.14 per minute for mobile calls. International calling cards can charge rates to Shanghai that range from $0.006 to $0.20 per minute.

Ooma-to-Ooma calls are 100% free regardless of the amount of time you talk, so if your contact in China is also an Ooma customer, you can talk as long as you want and it won’t cost a penny. You’ll also have calls in crystal-clear HD voice, which is much better quality than standard telephone lines can provide.

By upgrading to the Ooma World Plan, you get unlimited calls to all landlines and cell phones in China. This plan also includes unlimited calling to landlines in 60 countries and mobile phones in 10 countries. The monthly cost is $17.99 for the freedom and flexibility to make as many calls as you like without worrying about how many minutes you’ve spent talking.

Upgrading to the Ooma World Plus Plan gives you a larger set of countries included in your unlimited coverage. In addition to unlimited calls to all of China’s landlines and cell phones, this plan includes unlimited calling to landlines in 70 countries and mobile phones in 40 countries. The monthly cost is $25.00, and you’ll get even greater flexibility with international dialing.
