My ‘Google Voice‘ outbound service on the OBi110 stopped working this morning. Since OBi had screwed us before with Google Voice I kind of figured out, quite quickly, that this most likely was a software issue.

Did a few Google searches and LUCKILY stumbled upon the ‘Simon’ post, at the OBiTalk Forum, referenced above. A $6 FIX! I was skeptical since there were some bad reviews too. I was also worried that I might not be able to get it to work. But, $6 — on PayPal. Was worth a try.

IT WORKED — to my delight and relief.

The PayPal part was fine. No problems.

It took a FEW — nerve wracking — minutes, with multiple saves, browser refreshes and one cycling of power on the OBi110 before it took hold. Once it did, it was FINE.

So, …

What have you got to lose? $6?

I just hope this works for a few months.

Thank YOU, Simon.

You saved my day.

Unless you have POTS landline there is no point getting the OBi110.

If you don’t have a landline just get the OBi100.

IF you get an OBi110 and want to make Google Voice, or another VoIP, your default for outgoing calls, don’t bother wading through the reams of documentation and the hundreds of online posts.

It is actually very simple to do — as it should be. The trick is knowing WHERE you do it.

The option is SET on the Service Provider (SP) entries.

So, in my case SP1 Google Voice. That is where you enable this capability.

Just click on SP1, hit accept on the 911 disclaimer and BINGO … you will see a screen that says right at the top … make this Primary. That is it.

Takes about 9 seconds in total.

Very simple. Works. I have tried it out.

Yes, **1 still works and gets you Google Voice (if that was SP1), if you are a masochist and want to punch those numbers in.

**8 gets you POTS. Pretty neat.
