Quote from: cdcooker on June 27, 2011, 12:17:22 PMI want to use Obi A in USA, and Obi B in HK. I assume Obi B in HK can call Obi A in USA by using the AA and choose option 2 to dial out other USA numbers. I want to know how I can call from Obi A USA to Obi B in HK and using AA to dial HK numbers free of charge. Is it possible?
Quote from: cdcooker on June 27, 2011, 12:17:22 PMI am reposting my question from another thread.I bought 2 Obi here in USA. I have configured both with GV and both work just fine. I want to use Obi A in USA, and Obi B in HK. I assume Obi B in HK can call Obi A in USA by using the AA and choose option 2 to dial out other USA numbers. I want to know how I can call from Obi A USA to Obi B in HK and using AA to dial HK numbers free of charge. Is it possible?Thanks
Quote from: Dave on June 27, 2011, 01:52:54 PMAs I understand from this thread, people in US can call your GV number and your OBI in HK will ring. From HK use the attached phone to place an outgoing call through your GV port (probably SP1), and it will make free call to any US or Canada number. You will not need to use a US based Obi unit. Do you have a different understanding?
Quote from: RonR on June 27, 2011, 01:02:32 PMThe OBi's can call each other equally well in either direction and both can be configured to have the AA allow outgoing calls on its trunks. You simply need one or more service providers configured on each OBi (SP1/SP2/PSTN) to use for those outgoing calls.
Quote from: cdcooker on June 27, 2011, 02:22:12 PMHi, thank you for your advice. I need some further explanation from you. Since I have GV setup on SP1 on both Obi, I need to find a similar service in HK as SP2, right? I really don't know if there is anything like this in HK.The Obi that will be used in HK is Obi100, without a PSTN port. If I can't find similar service like GV in HK, do you think it is better off to buy a Obi110 for HK use, and hook up the regular phone line to the PSTN port? The house over there has local phone service.
Quote from: RonR on June 27, 2011, 01:02:32 PMBetter yet, with the proper configuration, each OBi can make local calls as well as calls through the remote OBi, directly (Single-Stage Dialing) without using the AA: 18005551212 -> Local PrimaryLine**1 18005551212 -> Local SP1 Service**2 18005551212 -> Local SP2 Service**8 18005551212 -> Local LINE Port**9 200123456 -> Local OBiTALK Service 2*18005551212 -> Remote PrimaryLine2 **1 18005551212 -> Remote SP1 Service2 **2 18005551212 -> Remote SP2 Service2 **8 18005551212 -> Remote LINE Port2 **9 200123456 -> Remote OBiTALK Service
Quote from: QBZappy on July 12, 2011, 10:42:10 AMbrentowen,Welcome. Have a look at this thread. I explain how to setup a Google Voice number in Canada.http://www.obitalk.com/forum/index.php?topic=93.0I have excellent voice quality with my OBi. You can setup everything from Canada. You will need to setup GV with a US IP. Above mentioned thread explains how to do it.Voice quality issues can sometimes be router related.
