Quote from: MichaelLloyd on March 18, 2014, 03:32:57 PMI think OBIHAI should send an email to all their users, so those depending on Google Voice aren't blind sided. Not everyone using an OBi device with Google Voice are active on this forum.Anyone think this is a bad suggestion?
Quote from: glb1945 on March 27, 2014, 01:53:10 PM As I say, I'm a newbie: plain and simple. Other clients aren't at all in this same boat. Therefore, when OBIHAI publishes a new soon-to-come update with a workable solution to the firecracker issue, they should address the needs of individuals such as myself and the needs of clients with more complex phone systems. Two different departments.
Quote from: glb1945 on March 27, 2014, 01:53:10 PMI agree that this is an "old" topic. But I haven't yet seen any "new" solutions from Obihai -- the official statements are almost as old as the original topic itself.
Quote from: simpleAnswers on March 30, 2014, 12:31:37 PMGiven that every Obi user is goaded to register with an email address, their motives for not notifying their users of this HUGE change has to be one of deception instead of oversight.
Quote from: giqcass on March 30, 2014, 09:56:09 PMI think it would have been a good idea to send email to their customers but they did post it on the blog, twitter, and Facebook. They didn't exactly hide it. Saying "every Obi user is goaded to register with an email address" is incorrect. If you don't use Obitalk or the forum they don't have your email address. Neither one is needed. I set up my Obi without the help of either. It was only later that I decided to join the forum and gave them my email address willingly.
Quote from: WTF! on April 14, 2014, 05:28:24 PM When I purchased my OBi100 it stated on the box FREE CALLING with Google Voice. With the change in the integration, why is OBIHAI not offering us users another free alternative. Why must we now search for other providers that my or my not work effectively in our respective areas.I believe OBIHAI is responsible in providing another free service or issue a buy back program for an unuseable product.
Quote from: MyTE on May 15, 2014, 09:53:12 AMI switched over from Google Voice to Vestalink http://www.vestalink.com/#_l_b2 which has the best price compared to the alternatives. It also provides all the features of Google Voice and more. You can also keep your # with Google Voice and have Google Voice forward the calls to your Vestalink # and Vestalink can Spoof your Google Voice # for the caller id for outgoing calls or just port your # over and they waive the $10 fee for Google Voice # ports.
