We keep trying to call out using our Obitalk 200 with Google Voice but the call doesn’t go through and we receive the message, “...has not received a response from the service provider.”  We unplugged and plugged back in and received a similar message “...call has been rejected by the service provider.”  We cannot get this to work.  We can receive calls just fine.

I 've had the same problem with my Obi202. Did you try logging into your dashboard and re-associating the device to your GV account? This has solved the problem for me in the past.

FYI: I had it happen to me today. It solved itself in about 15 minutes without a reset or anything on my end. I actually got dropped while on a Google Voice call. I tried using my PhonePower line and I had the an issue there as well.

I was on a call and got a blast of static followed by the connection going dead.  An attempt to reconnect resulted in the error  "...has not received a response from the service provider"  after 3 or 4 attempts I simply restarted the Obi200 and everything worked again as expected.

Looks like Google had a hiccup of some sort and simply reconnecting solved the problem.

Thank you for sharing. I had two of those hicups today but in both cases I was able to dial again without needing to touch my Obi202.

Edit: I just had it keep my from dialing out. Google Voice still works on the browser and my cell phone but not through my Obi202. It seems to be intermittent.

Edit again: I checked my logs and it seems to only happen on outgoing calls through the Obi and it is at exactly 15-minutes and 32 seconds. It does not happen every time. I've done some reading and generally this is caused by a router setting (SIP ALG?). It doesn't happen all of the time and I haven't changed anything there in over a year so I'm hesitant to mess with my Obi which has been working flawlessly for at least 7 years. I'll keep looking but I suspect it's related to greatly increased traffic with everyone being locked inside.

I get these static blasts too and it seems to be more common now.
Also having issues in the past week or two with dropped calls or calls not going through at all and Obitalk needing to be restarted to be able to place a call / resolve the issue.

with the increased work from home volumes, I've recently be subjected to both incoming and outgoing calls being dropped at any interval but usually within 15 minutes of a call .... I also get the static blast which is embarrassing on calls and doesn't speak well for Obitalk or Google .... I've reset the Obitalk and even reset the router but it doesn't reset and the line is useless ..... really disappointing to see other providers not having these issues.   Angry

Well, Google Voice is not intended for business use.  Sign up with a SIP VoIP ITSP like Callcentric or voip.ms instead.

Thank you for the suggestion to those who are having issues with GV. From your response and the fact we've not had issues before, is it correct for us to ascertain that the problem is known to be with GV and not our networks or the Obi devices? If so then I'll likely take your suggestion on signing up with another provider. I do also have a PhonePower set up but I need to keep that line free for family to use.

Thank you,

We (the Product Experts and Google staff on the Google Voice help forum) are getting sporadic reports of failures on OBiTALK devices.  A recent inbound call failure was fixed.  I have never seen a solution to reports of calls being disconnected after some time period.

Generally speaking, it isn't easy to diagnose the rather useless "has not received a response from the service provider" error.  However, Google regularly suspends users' access to the service, when abuse is detected, which will cause that error.  This is most commonly when people send many outbound text messages without an equivalent number of conversational replies, which looks like (and probably is) spam, or they make many outbound calls of rather short duration over a limited time period, which looks like (and probably is) robocalling or telemarketing.  When this happens, the user will see a suspension notice when going to their Google Voice web page:  https://voice.google.com/u/0/calls

My point about not using the mostly-free, consumer-class version of Google Voice for business, is that it is not supported at all for that purpose by Google, it occasionally breaks, and it might take hours or days to fix whatever might go wrong.

Google does have a paid, business-class version of Google Voice for G Suite customers.  It includes direct support from Google, and it has a published service level.  However, it does not work with 200 series, 1000 series, nor 2000 series products.  It does work with newer Poly VVX IP phones.
