I have just acquired an OBi100.  I have my Google Voice number on it.  I will also have a second VOIP service with my home phone number. My home handset will ring when people call either number, and I can make calls out with my regular handset.

Is the OBiON is a softphone? Can I set it up to ring (on my iPhone) at the same time that my handsets ring through the OBi100 device? 

Is that what this app is?  I am looking for that.  An app to put into my iPhone that will ring, and from which I can call, as if I was at home using my regular handset and the OBi100 using either data or WiFi.

OBion is a softphone and can do everything you want, but will require some configuration changes on the OBi100. It has been a very unreliable (understatement) for the iPhone, but OBihai has recently provided an update.

Ellen, I'm just replying to your title, "new & stupid."    I think you will find a lot of help here, & the smart people were all "new" at some point.  I'm still trying to understand all the terminology & have found the folks who have answered my posts to be kind & patient.  Colleen

Ask if you need help configuring the OBi100.
You can have single stage dialing from OBion instead of using the Auto Attendant.
