Title: email alert when internet is down
Post by: beyoncenugs on January 19, 2018, 03:41:42 am
Greetings,

Hopefully this is an easy one...

I remember an email from Obitalk recently describing a way to activate a setting that will email me when my phone service is inactive due to a dropped internet connection.  Unfortunately I can't locate the email and google (surprisingly) has been no help.

I vaguely remember something about ObiExtras, (which I thought was free with Obi200), but my ObiExtra tab says nothing about this feature and I'm not currently paying the $4.99 monthly fee listed on my tab.

Can someone explain exactly how to initiate this feature?  I have an Obi200 -- upgraded from my 100 back in November...

Thanks!

From your OBi Dashboard, click on blue "gear" icon. Put checkmark in box for "Enable OBi Notify."*

*Note: this option is only available (without paying for Premium Support) if your device is still under warranty.

This would be nice to have and I actually didn't know about it, but I would have to sign up for the 10.00 support to get it. Yeah, I know.  It's only 10.00, but .....  ;D
