Quote from: AndyA on February 16, 2011, 11:05:40 PMI did more tests and found that when I dial through the Google Voice interface, where you go to the Google Voice web page and click call and select the phone to call with, it does show my GV caller ID. But when I dial through Google Chat on the Gmail web page, it does not show the caller ID. This seems to point to direct calls made through Google Chat (which is what OBi is simulating) not showing the caller ID.This has a major implication. If you get rid of of your land line to convert to OBI and Google Voice combination, your calls will always show UNKNOWN on the caller ID. You could end up with the hassle of your calls being ignored. I hope the Obihai people will look into this right away 'coz it's a major downer if there is no fix or if it happens intermittently.

Quote from: RonR on February 17, 2011, 12:02:29 PMThere are numerous VoIP providers out that that can be plugged into the OBi for a small fraction of the cost one pays for landline service, so it's a phenomenal product regardless of what happens with Google Voice. Don't fall into thinking the OBi is all about Google Voice.
