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.

OBiTALK Forcing A $10 Upgrade To Continue Google Voice Support!

I have been very successfully and gainfully using an OBi110Voice Service Bridge‘ to BOND our landline from TDS with an VoIP service from Google Voice. Basically I can use either the TDS landline or Google Voice to place calls and calls on the TDS landline comes in (as does calls on Google Voice).

Last week the OBi started giving me grief. Yes, I had changed my Google password (after we had our rental car, with electronics, broken into in San Francisco) and OBiTalk, quite correctly, needed the new password. But, even after that it kept on DISCONNECTING my Google Voice service. That was annoying. Then on the 4th day of this palava OBiTalk ADMITTED what it was really up to.

It wanted $10 off me to UPDATE my software and thereby have continued, uninterrupted Google Voice service. I didn’t really have any choice. $10 or NO Google Voice. I, of course, paid — via Amazon Checkout.

Just seemed sneaky and bordering on extortion. Easy way to get $10 per customer. $10 for FREE Google Voice is a bargain. I would have paid that without any problem. Seems a pity that OBi goes about doing this in what comes across as an underhand way!
