Am i missing something?
Isn't CallCentric + GV Callback a complete alternative?

How will you have outgoing calls? CALLCentric is only free incoming

Other than that it replaces everything?
I'm currently using GV in office next to a computer and have the GV chrome extension

Maybe for an office it will work, but for a home phone, I don't find it practical to use GV Callback.

I would rather pay $40 a year for the service

Good to know.

I just set up the 30 day trial will see how that works.

I set up with Google voice that all incoming calls should be fwd to obivoice, and I spoofed my outgoing number.

Nice feature with ObiVoice - they have working called ID (That Google Voice did not support) Caller ID works even if the call is fwded from my Google Voice number!

Pls keep us posted how clear the line is

Not sure why you guys don't like MagicJack. I have been very happy with it and you can wire the whole house. Ooma makes you buy a side unit for each phone.
