OBihia VOIP and Google Voice
« on: December 24, 2019, 04:16:43 AM »
has anyone ever played with the Obihia VOIP Units at all? I can add free VOIP to my system using google voice and the Obihia OBi202 VOIP unit. I'm looking into trying to get the grandstream to do this, but can't... I guess its not compatible.

I have an OBI200 with google voice and I am using a grandstream HT502 (which supports pulse dialing) to dial out through the OBI using GV. The HT502 is a little picky when it comes to accepting pulses. I am using a 500 set with no issues, my Uniphone is a little temperamental.


I got most of my info through obitalk forums, I can assist if you are interested.

Then look for a UTStarcom IAN02-EX it is the most reliable I have found for pulse dialing.

I have been a long time user of Google Voice. I have sed it with asterisk directly , smonics gateway and GVSIP on asterisk.

Most recently I wanted to try a Obi200 device I ended up buying an Obi202 and I can report that I am very happy with the results. I connect to it via my asterisk and with a single GV account I can make/receive multiple simultaneous calls. I have a Multi handset VoIP phobe system that I use with asterisk but could probably use with the Obi directly (without asterisk) .

I love also how it integrates with my Android phone. I no longer have to use any calling from my cell carrier and all calls originate from my GV number.

SInce this great experience her off the horrible Ooma service that my brother put her on and she is now using google voice on an Obi200 with GV911

I am in the process of doing so for an aunt and uncle as well.

I had google voice, and was very disappointed with it.... my unit must have had a bad microphone in it, because all it was good for was a bluetooth speaker. I wound up giving it away...

This is strange! Googe Voice is not a device, it is a service. You COULD have used Google Voice with your antique phones making the microphone problem that of your phone .

Sounds to me like you had a problem with a device, not the Google Voice Service
