I have 2 GV accounts configured for use with my Obi110. SP1 (my GV) goes to Google voicemail as expected when no one picks up. However, the GV number assigned as SP2 on the Obi goes to the digital answering system on the corded handset in my home, instead of going to my wife's GV voicemail. So far I have:
1) checked and re-checked configurations
2) set the home phone to pick up only after 8 rings (the maximum)
3) set GV to announce callers
4) Made the obligatory 1st call directly from Gmail
Yet somehow the home answering machine (which is set not to take messages) still picks up. Any ideas?
As a previous responder mentioned, I too believe I've stumbled on the resolve to your wife's GV voicemail not picking up... and for those who want to skip GV voicemail, a resolve for that as well... I've just tested this:
If your wife's (or your) phone number is in the ObiTALK "Trusted Users", AA will /answer/ the call, and prompt for "pass-through,"(1) "make another call,(2) or "callback"(3).
I wanted to go to GV voicemail, so I--my phone is in the "Trusted Callers" list--pressed "1" with the expectation that GV voicemail would pick up. I don't have an answering machine(sic) on the phone connected to the Obi, so my "passed-through" call just kept ringing, and ringing... and ringing.
I found this thread among others seeking an explanation... and then it dawned on me: Obi answered the GV number's call!
Went to ObiTALK; took my calling phone out of "Trusted Callers"; called my GV number, and voila... GV voicemail!
Keep in mind, the Obi takes a few minutes to finalize configuration changes.
Oh, and I discovered how to have my AA and GV voicemail too... just press "2" at the AA prompt, and put your GV number in... straight to GV voicemail!
Now, if some kind soul would explain to me how to configure Google chat to actually chat with my Obi (the tutorial on page 4 was not helpful)...
