Ok Steve but what about this scenario:
So what should I do to follow your advice.
How do I make Obi ring my cordless handset when GV1 is dialed by third parties without causing a mess when my android or gmail are on GM1
I explained why this doesn't work. It is a limitation of GV. Do what Rick and I said...move your number over to another GV account.http://support.google.com/voice/troubleshooter/1378507
I hope you take this as friendly advice, not scolding:
GV is not a full-function, business-class offering. If the option of splitting your number off to another account doesn't meet your business needs, keep in mind the standard warning we give everyone who posts on the GV forum with a "I use this for my business" comment: Google Voice is great for personal, individual use, but it has no direct technical support
, and (especially lately) it is subject to outages and mysterious bugs that can extend for long periods of time with no resolution. We strongly recommend that business users consider one of the hosted PBX services (just one example being Ring Central), which offer a higher service level and business-specific features.
