OBI100

If I have GV app on both of my phones on for texting and phone contacts, and my Gmail open on my computer, will the OBI100 ring for both of my GV phone numbers? I ask because I have been reading blogs where it may or may not due to Gmail open in a browser  on computer, and I want to have my Gmail open on my computer as it's my main email, has all my contact list that I use for email and phone calls on my cell phone.

  • I don't have the answer to that, so I moved this post to the Google Voice forum.

  • You'll need to turn off Chat in the Gmail settings if you want it to work reliably -- otherwise the web chat client will take priority and be the only one that rings. The GV app on the phones won't be an issue, but something like GrooVeIP would have the same problem.

  • It make sense what your saying, but Obihai  just emailed me and basically said you can leave both gmail chat and OBI100 on.

    Hi William,

     

    Pardon our earlier email. The OBi device will always ring compared to Gmail. You can either power off the OBi or disable Google Voice from OBiTALK if you want to receive calls on your Gmail.

  • I have the OBi device and 2 GV numbers. When a call comes in, all the devices set up to respond to the number, ring. Not all devices necessarily ring simultaneously. The OBi generally rings first followed closely by Tablets and cell phones.

  • The OBi can have different rings for each GV number making it easier when you are home or one person is away from home.
