Use overseas

Post by Ferryman » Wed May 20, 2015 2:36 am

Am I able to use the Ooma app while traveling overseas? Is there a per-minute charge? I am a Premier subscriber.

Yes, you can.

There would be a per-minute charge if you are calling a non-US and non-Canada number, unless you subscribe to the World plan and the number you are calling is covered by that plan.

So, just to confirm... If I am overseas, let's say Spain or Italy, can I use my Ooma Mobile app to call my home by making the call to my second number (assuming I have an appropriate data plan or wifi connection)? Has anyone on this forum actually done this?

If I am traveling overseas can I actually take my TELO with me and use it outside of the USA, or is it subject to local country telecom regulations and taxes? I am thinking about the EU in particular. Of course, I can't enter the EU now because the USA is a "contaminated, unhealthy" country. So much we could say about that topic. Thank you.

It can work but some countries may block the ports it needs to work. Also the DECT frequencies are not permitted in some countries so the DECT transmitter would have to be turned off. That means no Ooma handsets could be used.
