Good afternoon.

I have an OBi1062 that is connected to two GV accounts. My cell phone can only connect to one GV account, so I was wondering what the easiest way to setup the Android phone to receive both numbers.

Also, can I distinguish which line the incoming call is from?

Is it easier to use the OBiON and just disable the GV to the cell?

And lastly, does the OBiON have the ability to relay text messages that come into the GV numbers?

Thank you in advance.

How are you connected to GV?
Is your cell setup as a forwarding number?
If yes, you can lie and add your cell number to the 2nd GV.
Just change the phone type from Mobile to Home.
Now GV will allow you to add your number to 2 GV accounts.

OBion Android hasn't been updated since 2011.
It works for some, but people with newer versions of Android have more problems.
See the Updated under Additional Info:

You can use a softphone on your Android to talk to your OBi.
With CSipSimple you can make and receive calls to/from your OBi.
GV provides an 11 digit CallerID.
For the 2nd GV account you could change the prefix from "1" to "2", so you would know where the call is coming from.

The only way I know to do text messages with GV is with the Hangout app.
