Ok, so I am in the same boat as the rest of you obi users who still have GV as a service provider and after doing some homework and reading the posts in this form, I think that obivoice may be the best choice for our home phone service. We have only one line with a set of cordless phones and get DSL internet through Centurylink. We have had an obi100 for a year or so now but have not been too happy with GV lately due to dropped calls and people getting cut off when the phone only rings two times.
I went to the obivoice sign up page but when I checked to see if our current number will transfer, it said it would not. I understand about signing up with obivoice and getting a new number which our existing number can be forwarded to so people can use our old number and still reach us, but what happens when GV service will no longer work through obi devices? Will the forwarding setup no longer work then and if so, is there any way I can keep our old number and use obivoice?
Like so many other people, I am looking for a good cheap alternative that will let me keep our number, give us 911 service, and be reliable. We don't use the home phones that much but need a way for family members to reach us. I do not understand about DID's, SIP's, or MMXP.
