Quote from: globewalker on March 28, 2022, 01:40:15 PM- Under google Contacts, I created a couple of contacts but see no Group Option. there is a Label option if that is now it?- In GV/settings I see OBI under DEVICES but it is not a choice under Call Forwarding (only my cell number is that I used to create the account)so when I try to create Custom call Forwarding rule OBI is not an option.- Not sure how to eliminate other callers if I get the above working
Quote from: Taoman on March 28, 2022, 02:59:46 PMIn GV settings, disable all devices and Call forwarding numbers.In Custom Call Forwarding, create rule using label/groups (or All Contacts) to forward to your cell phone number (if desired).Even though you disabled the OBi device in GV settings, unknown callers will be routed directly to GV voicemail and your GV Contacts will still be routed directly to your OBi. OBi devices are treated differently than either Android or iOS devices.

"Forward to these numbers: No linked numbers" is displayed, but that is no problem either. I saved the rule. This is not optional, you must create a custom rule for all of this to work.
Quote from: MSRobiNote that the forwarding setting for the built in "Web" device did not affect the above behavior. Except if I'm in GV on the web, and a caller not in my contact list calls, they will hear ringing while I decide to answer/not answer the call via the web interface.
