Your Google Voice Number Now Rings Multiple OBi-Attached Telephones
Now, when you update your OBi202 with special pre-release firmware AVAILABLE HERE, you can use a single Google account on multiple OBi202 devices...and on incoming calls, all your attached OBi202 phones will ring !!
When somebody calls your Google Voice number, not only will the regular land line and mobile phones you have set-up in your Google Voice account ring, but phones attached to your OBi202 VoIP phone adapters will ring as well.
To use this feature, manually update your OBi202 devices with the 3-0-1 (3585) firmware available at the OBiTALK forum (Click Here). Next, use the OBiTALK web portal to set up two or more OBi202 VoIP phone adapters with the same Gmail account you use with Google Voice. If you use Google Talk, a stand-alone, downloadable chat application by Google for PC to PC voice (and text) chatting, this endpoint will also ring when someone calls your Google Voice number. Note: The browser-based Gmail Call Phone client application will not ring when using your Google Voice number with this feature.
Send Text Messages to Your Regular Home Phone(s)
Also in this release is a feature that alerts you to incoming SMS / text messages to your Google Voice number and lets you see the first few words of the text message in the Caller Name area of your regular phone's display. The Caller Number area will show the number from where the text message was sent. To use this feature, go to the Google Voice settings area of your OBi202 Device Configuration in the OBiTALK web portal. Here, you will see the option to enable this feature on the OBi202.
Please also note that your Google Voice settings must have the "Text Forwarding" option box checked. This setting is in the "Voicemail & Text" area.
