I beg to differ. I clearly understand and correctly, I might add. I don't make international calls a lot but my friends do. They were either with iTalkBB or Vonage World. They've now signed up with Ooma on Basic 1000 min international plans. They are all happy campers now. 1000 min of international calling per month is plenty for most people in a residential setting (which Ooma is for in the first place). 1000 min is about 33 minutes every day; if one was to miss a day, they'd have more than an hour the next day. That's a lot of minutes...for most folks, the Ooma Basic 1000 min international plan is perfect.noltian wrote:I don't think you understand correctly or you don't make international call alot.

6000 min a month? I can't imagine being on the phone for 3.3 hours day in, day out, every day without fail just on international calls unless in a business setting.noltian wrote:Everyone has different life style. If OOMA works for you well, it's good. The original post came from someone probably make more international calls. Do I understand?..I used to make 3k-6k minutes of internation calls with vonage. I stil charge alot with prepaid account.
The bottom line is that the Ooma Basic 1000 international plan is perfect (you might have seen me mention this point) for overwhelming majority of frequent international callers. With FUSF, it works out to $11.79 a month which translates to 1.18 cents per minute to 70 countries. That's a great deal!
BTW, for those that are wondering, Vonage World unlimited isn't really unlimited. It ain't 5,000 either; it won't be long before they terminate your service if you go over 3,000 minutes in international calling.
I bring up what I said before:

Even if you need heavy international usage, why would you pay $33+ a month (or $28 with iTalkBB) when you can just spend $11.79 a month with Ooma?
