How to Call South Korea from the U.S.

Making an international call is easy.

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

  • First, dial 011 to exit the U.S. telephone system.
  • Now dial South Korea’s country code, which is 82.
  • Finally, dial the local number, which can be anywhere from 6 to 12 digits.

With calls to South Korea, there are a few considerations to keep in mind. You may encounter listed numbers beginning with a “0.” That 0 is a “trunk code” and is part of South Korea’s national dialing format (just like how we in the U.S. sometimes use “1” when dialing a long distance number). Dial only the numbers after the 0 to ensure the call goes through properly.

Landline numbers will either be 8 or 9 digits, while mobile numbers can range from as few as 6 to as many as 12 digits (most are 9 or 10 digits, though). While there is a wide disparity in the number of digits for mobile lines, these numbers always begin with 1.

Calls made through the Ooma Mobile app do not use any minutes or incur international charges on your wireless bill. Instead, these calls are routed over your data connection and may count against your data allotment if you’re not on an unlimited plan with your carrier. If possible, connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot to place calls in order to minimize data usage.

Calling another Ooma customer in any country is free of charge no matter how long you talk. If you encounter any issues or have any further questions, feel free to get in contact with us via our Customer Support website at https://support.ooma.com.

Besides the Basic and Premier Service plans, Ooma offers two international calling plans.

The Ooma World Plan provides unlimited calling to all landline numbers in South Korea. In total, this plan includes unlimited calling to landline numbers in 60 other countries and mobile numbers in 10 countries for $17.99 per month. Any calls to mobile numbers are billed at the discounted Premier Service rate, which is $0.049. These charges are added over and above your monthly plan charge.

The Ooma World Plus Plan extends unlimited calling privileges to all mobile numbers and increases the number of unlimited calling options for landlines to 70 countries and mobile phones to 40 countries for $25.99 per month.

International Calling to South Korea

It can be difficult and expensive to call friends and family in Southeast Asia, but with Ooma Telo, it’s now affordable and easy.

Using Ooma’s Basic Service or Premier Service, rates for calls to South Korea vary based on where you’re calling to within the country. Calls to the capital city of Seoul (2 area code) are cheapest, billed at $0.039 per minute. Calls to any other location are billed at $0.06 per minute.

Rates for calls to mobile numbers vary based on your plan. With Basic Service, the rate is $0.084 per minute, and Premier Service subscribers are charged a $0.049-per-minute rate. Basic Service is prepaid, so charges are deducted from your prepaid balance, while with Premier Service, the per-minute charges are added to your bill 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 cheaper than its competitors. At first glance, MCI’s $0.09-per-minute rate looks comparable, but there are other charges you need to factor in. MCI charges a $4.00 monthly fee to get those low rates, meaning your actual per-minute rate is significantly higher, especially if you’re not placing a lot of international calls.

Ooma-to-Ooma calls are 100% free regardless of the amount of time you talk, so if your contact in South Korea 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.
