Quote from: giqcass on January 25, 2014, 07:59:36 PMGoogle Voice can be used for voicemail only with your cellphone. If Obivoice would add a forward after XX seconds option then Google Voice could be used for instead of Obivoice Voicemail as well. They seem very open to suggestions right now. Have you noticed the Obivoice price increases?
Quote from: jazzy on January 24, 2014, 08:30:33 AMJust signed up for the free 60 minutes to test out Obivoice. Set up was easy and my forwarded GV number rings my ObV within 1 ring or less. Currently was using a free DID from CC, and the forwarded GV number would ring my Obihai after at least 2 rings. Some calls wouldn't even ring the Obihai and those calls would end up in GV voice mail. Seems like about 20%-40% of my incoming calls would not get sent to the free CC DID. So it seems for now, ObV is more reliable. Spoofing my GV number, and it shows up fine as the number in caller ID.

Everything seems to work fine on Obivoice with one exception - GV voicemail messages no longer create a stutter tone and message on my cordless phone as they did with CC even though the online GV logs show all the calls and messages. Is there a setting for Obivoice I am missing?

Is there a setting for Obivoice I am missing?Go to http://support.obivoice.com/ and search for "MWI on OBi" and you will find the setup for the message waiting and stutter tone.

Quote from: giqcass on January 25, 2014, 01:38:01 AMThere have been some price changes to Obivoice. It would not have bothered me if the original prices were labeled as introductory and they upped them. The fact that the prices were not "introductory prices" and they upped them so soon into the game makes me question the stability of the company.
QuoteIf they are doing anything it's paying attention to the forums. They already Fixed a bug I told them about and added Paypay after I asked for it. I love how responsive they are.

In order to have your name display on your outgoing caller ID log into your Obivoice portal and go to numbers and then manage numbers and click on edit. The blank to enter your name will become active.
