I have seen people talking about adding a NetTalk Duo to their Obi.  For those considering it this might be a good time to order.  You can't add the credentials directly to the Obi but this could work well for those people that have an Obi110 or Obi2xx 3xx series Obi with Obiline adapter.  I am currently using a MagicJack with my Obi202.  This type of setup gives you a low cost provider with the extra power of the Obi.  According to them the NetTalk Duo VoIP is also "fax friendly".  Once attached to your Obi it can be set as your primary line or it can be used with a dialing sequence.  

One of the reasons this might be a particularly good option for some is that NetTalk has an add on plan that gives you unlimited texting for an additional $29 per year.

Changing X_InBoundCallRoute to ring both {ph} and cellphone

Almost right - but not quite:

(1.) Change from "OBiTalk" dashboard to "OBi Expert Configuration".
(2.) Choose "SP3 Service" under "Voice Services".
(2a) Uncheck both boxes to the right of the value to be changed and leave them unchecked.
(3.) Change setting for X_InboundCallRoute from ph to {ph,SP3(1234567890)}
(3a) Press the "submit" button at the bottom of the page and wait a couple of minutes for your OBi to reboot.

Also I took out the space in {ph,SP3(1234567890)}. Sounds picky, but spaces can cause trouble.

It is possible to make this imitation call hunting a little more sophisticated. Consider an InboundCallRoute such as:

Voice Services > SP1 Service > X_InboundCallRoute:

A call coming in to sp1 will ring the phone connected to the OBi. Five seconds later the call will be forked to 12222222222. Fifteen seconds later the call will be forked to 13333333333. All three endpoints will now be ringing, the first to answer takes the call. If a second call comes in while the first call is in progress, then the two free endpoints will receive ringing (after any applicable delays) and either may take the second call.

To use the Oleg Method with this example:

Voice Services > SP1 Service > X_InboundCallRoute:

Where 1234567 = Voice Services > SP1 Service > SIP Credentials > AuthUserName
