OBI has removed any mention of the demise of Google Voice from their website.

Quote from: SteveInWANote that there is absolutely no such thing as "Approved Service Provider" status for GV. Any implication that Google has explicitly "approved" of Google Chat or Hangouts client use on OBi devices is unfounded and meaningless.
Quote from: dircom on August 19, 2014, 07:31:04 AMMost of the senseless area 51 type talk has been posted by people with 1-10 posts.I'm glad I got a paid provider. GV was never going to be good enough for my wife. I ported my home # to a VOIP provider. I still enjoy GV for 2nd lines, and #'s in other states. I will enjoy GV for as long as it lasts. Hard to believe people get so stirred up by a free service. And even though Obihai is not the best at communicating (I know, an understatement), the product is so good, and so inexpensive, that I can overlook "not knowing" all the details; however this doesn't mean I don't wish they would communicate better i.e., changelogs, etc. (but I'm not holding my breath for that to happen)
Quote from: SteveInWA on August 20, 2014, 05:23:06 PMPersonally, forward calls from GV to a Callcentric DID, and make outbound calls via Callcentric or Localphone, and I've found that to be the best combination of features, performance and cost for me.
