It doesn't really matter whether 1 line rings or 2.  When you pick up the call is only being connected to 1 of those lines.  The other line gives up and waits for the next call.  The magic jack would have been using a different microphone and AFAIK Magic Jacks (even the old ones) have internal sound processing that does not utilize the sound card on the host computer.  The old ones did the heavy lifting via software and the Magic Jack dongle acted like a second separate sound card.

Even with a good microphone it must be adjusted correctly in the software.  Do you sound muffled to your relative?

Ok.
Perhaps , previously I thought, the line  must be ditributed into two splits
and hence the voice qlty, might have been sufferring !   ( I was wrong, as per you now. )

As per him,..
My voice heard there was ok, only his voice to me, was kinda muffled and not that clear pronounciated,..
perhaps the sound was via computer's sound card...( as if, many people use skype service to call internationally, using mic and headphones via PC )

 He was previously / so far  calling  to my both OBI numbers ( my OBI202 piece in USA ) via  a  TK6000 piece ( older version of the Nettalk piece )  there, from India,  ( Phone to Phone ( no mic or speakers ), though via Laptop, as the piece there, then did not require separate power source,  ( PC serves as internet and power source both ) otherwise the piece would needed all three connections-  ( wire to Power-source,  wire to Phone,  wire to ethernet/modem for internet ) -  ( Just like any latest nettalk piece or 'Magic jack plus' piece )

Your relatives should create their own accounts to use with the Obion app.  They do not need an Obi to create an account.  They could use the link below or just search for Obion in the app store/itunes.

Direct links

Android
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.paad.hello

Iphone
http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/obion/id403785533?mt=8

PC   Please note PC software is no longer supported.  I have no idea whether it still works and it requires extra setup.

1.
You said, they do not need to have OBI piece. Now, if  he has an i-phone in a diff. country and I own a OBI piece here in USA,  how, and which number to him,.. I will be dilaing him, when I am calling him on his i-phone? ( In different nations, they have diff. phone number formats  and total digits,. etc. )

2.
 What is the diference between the PC application link, that you just provided here,.. and  that green color of "call obi" phone icon,.. which is already there, on  www.obitalk.com website.
Are they both talk similar for them, to call me in USA on my OBI ?  Which is more advantageous and latest?

His country of origin does not matter.  Calls between an Obi and the Obion app do not use phone numbers.  If you try to dial his regular Iphone phone number you will receive an error or pay for a long distance call. When he signs up for an account he will receive a "my Obitalk number" number.  It is similar to your device Id number and it will be 9 digits.  It looks like a phone number and it starts with a 2.  To call him without incurring charges you would dial **9 then dial his 9 digit "Obitalk number".  This will only work if he has the Obion app installed AND running AND signed in to his own Obitalk account.  If he turns it off you will receive an error message.

One is actual software that runs on a PC(Windows only) it requires more setup but it can also receive calls.  The other "green color of call obi phone icon" is a newer system for making calls in a web browser but it can't receive a call.

Thanks for this detailed clarification.

 Did you mean, that,.... the time I am calling him,..
he should  be logged on to his  Obitalk account, and does this mean that,.... I should be  contacting him in advance ( by some other means  )  that  now I will be calling you, so,   get logged in and ready?  Or,... once the obi icon he gets established on his smartphone,
means he is always logged on and ready to be called ?

same query as  above .

 Also,.. on that Obion app web page, it shows some picture and says,.. to scan it by your smartphone ! - What is that?
Is it automatically downloading of the software to your smartphone ?

I meant the app that he downloads must be running and logged in.  He does not need to be logged in to the web portal.

If he has a scanner app on his phone then scanning that qr code will take him to the download page.

  I received this message from OBI,..  It's not ready to use, yet ?

There is an issue with ios 8 compatibility though and our engineers are
working on resolving this. There is no target date for that patch at this
time.

 Sir, I really appreciate for your kind help and patience.

 My relatives living in India, carries  Samsung Galaxy S3  phone.

 Could you pl. advise me step by step, so that ( I can advise him,.. ) and he can download the needed software
( please provide the "direct realted link, to download" for his above device )
 and he can have an icon on his Cell phone with 9 Digits ID number,
and then we both can talk each other, using that 9 digit numbers of each other.

  I have got my OBI202 piece, with my 9 digits of ID ready
and the piece is connected with my phones, here in the USA.

Can I make an OBITALK account for him, on his behalf,
and then giving him   the   screen name and password, to make his life easier ?

Thank you.

Have him create an Obitalk account. http://www.obitalk.com/obinet/login/newaccount.php
Tell him to search for Obion in the Android market.
Install the app.
Open the App.
Log in on the app.

2.
Could you  please provide the "direct realted link, to download" for his above device.   Thx.

Android
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.paad.hello

Iphone

 Sir,

1.
Should I understand that,.. he should open the above page with his   Samsung S3 Galaxy, and press the install button there and it will install the needed software
and will create an icon on his desktop of his Cell,
and then he can login with the screen and password provided ( by me, for his new separate account  ) to him, and it will take care of all ?

Am I right, in my thinking ?


2.
Will We both  have to add **9  in front of the 9 digits ID number of ours, when calling to each other ?


3.
As you suggested, I have already opened a new obi account for him ( User ID : "mdmodi100" ), but where is his 9 digit ID number, alooted for him ?  I see it, nowhere.


4.
What is that,  Google white bag icon error? Will one have to buy something for that white bag, before installing the needed application ?


.

1) Yes that will install the correct software. 

2) With default settings you will need to use **9

3) He can find it in the Obi app on his Android device after logging in. Click the "obitalk" tab and then look at the top for "My Obitalk no".  Alternatively log in on the web and go to http://www.obitalk.com/obinet/pg/obhdev the number likely starts with 290.  Option3:  Have him call you.  It should show up in your call history.

4) That is a Google Play issue.  I don't have experience with that issue.  I recommend a search on the subject.

Thank you,.. and  YESS,...I did establish the lines
like you mentioned above, with my relatives in India, I remain in  DE, USA. ( He got Samsung S5 in India )

They called me twice and somehow the phone gets disconnected soon after 15 sec. of talk.  Dunno why?

When I tried calling his number  **9 290 abc xyz ( for security, I used abc xyz ) 3-4 times,...
it rings,...... but the message speaks that the providing service is rejecting your phone,  error 404.
No conversation did establish from my end. What does this mean?

 So,.. pl. advice us, how to establish a good permanent  connection,
also on  a permanent basis, ( by always logging in, certain way )  without any such interferences.

 Thank you Sir.    Yr help here, remains priceless.

I wouldn't use the Obion app for Android.
It hasn't been upgraded since 2011.
Are you willing to try a different method?
You would have to install a softphone on your Android or iPhone and define a trunk on your OBi2xx.
Do you have a smartphone, so you can test this by yourself?
If yes to the above, start by getting 2 free Sip2Sip accounts here:
https://mdns.sipthor.net/register_sip_account.phtml

Select all numeric UserIDs, so you can dial it from a keypad.
Like 12345678@sip2sip.info
One account will be for your OBi and the 2nd for the smartphone.
When you have your accounts, post back.

That error suggest to me that the Obion app may not have been running on his phone at the time you made the call.  The recommendation by azrobert might be best at this point.  I don't think Obihai is going to update the Obion app anytime soon.
