Quote from: TheHoaryHound on February 29, 2012, 11:43:38 AMHey Lateralg,~snip~My question relates to the route taken by a call when dialing from the Obion application on an Android phone. I'm wondering if the call is physically routed back through the Obi110 box at my home, before routing out via GV. If that's the case, then any call out from my wifi 8)android phone will be limited by the bandwidth (and power reliability) of my home internet connection.~snip~

Consequently, any telephones connected to it are totally inoperative when the OBi has no power.

Those of you that have more recent experience with a provider could post updated comments there, if you like.

Quote from: TheHoaryHound on February 29, 2012, 11:43:38 AMHey Lateralg,I'm wondering...did you ever get a straight answer to your original question, "The route an Obie/Google Voice call takes"?I'd be very interested to see your flow chart, once you have it worked out. Also...very cool that you're providing a seminar to "old folks" (like us)...that is, people old enough to remember stepper switches for POTS dialing.
