Thanks for this tutorial.  I did all 8 steps and it works.  I did notice my incoming call ring is a double ring instead of ring profile type 1(single ring).  I went into the expert settings and made sure the ring type is 1 for both sp1(GV), and sp2(call centric).  Is there a way to get all my incoming calls on obi200 to ring single ring type 1 again?
Check that the RingProfile is set to A.

Yes that fixed it!
The SP2 ring profile was set default to B.
I set it to A and now it's back to the normal ring!

Thanks so much!

These are really helpful posts, especially the tutorial from Dwestall. I was able to follow it and set up Callcentric E911 service with my ObiTalk 200. My SP1 is GV. Now when I call 933 to verify the service, the voice echoes my address correctly. But it tells me that I called from 1-631-909-****. I don't recognize this number. It's neither my GV number, nor CC number. However, when I call this number from another phone, the phone connected to ObiTalk rings. I expect it tells me that I called from my GV number.

Do any one know what this 1-631-909-**** number is? Is this expected or have I missed any setting?

Thank you in advance.

Thanks a lot drgeoff!!! I answered my question. I responded with a follow-up question as shown here:

"I am using Callcentric's E911 + GV. I noticed that the number read out by 933 test is not always reachable. It's only reachable for a while after I call 933. Do you know how long it remains reachable after 911 call? This is important too."

Do you know the duration that the call back number remains available?

Please don't cross-post the same question in multiple places.

I've just tried this, seems like the monthly cost will be at least $2.50 now since apparently they no longer give out a free number. Wish I'd known that before paying to set up the account, which is why I'm posting it here...

You don't need the inbound number, as long as you can skip CNAM.  Just pay for the E911.  And, seriously, is $1.50 per month too much to afford?

Hi. I just discovered that on my own, after hours of poking around and a service ticket with callcentric, and was coming back here to correct my post.

The reason I THOUGHT it was necessary to have a number are the steps 7 and 8 in your otherwise-excellent tutorial, which specifically talk about needing to enter and test it. Might want to edit that so other newbies - people who have no idea what a CNAM is - don't make the same conceptual error.

My E911 is now working, and - as you say - a good deal at $1.50/mo

thanks

I have been searching for this exact situation on the web.  I am planning to pull the trigger on getting obihai and callcentric but since they don't have the free number anymore all i saw was the plans they have which i thought i would have to fork out $3 a month.

I have no idea what CNAM is but i am going to look into it now. I just want to make it clear that once i purchase and setup my obihai with google voice, there will be an option for me to select $1.50 a month just for e911?  I am registered on callcentric right now and I cant seem to find this pricing anywhere lol.

I am wrong, could you assist me on what exactly to do to get that pricing just for e911? 

Thank you

Callcentric's website is confusing at first.  They sell inbound calling and outbound calling separately.  Since 911 service is outbound, you need to sign up for outbound calling at the per-minute (pay as you go) rate.  Once you do that, you can select 911 service for $1.50/month.

Thank you for clarifying that.   Do you know why its asking to add funds to balance when i select pay per use?  it automatically sets it to $5.  im assuming this balance would be used for the 911 fee?  Thank you

They don't offer "use first; pay later".  It's prepaid, just like a prepaid cell phone plan.  Yes, the funds will pay all CC costs/fees.
