Best way to transfer an opitmum land line to GV? attempted with ultra-mobile sim card, but that requires an optimum pin and Optimum does not provide pins, tried using 1234 as a pin with ultra mobile and does not work.
Call optimum and ask them what do use as a pin when porting out

Different browser same problem
Open your start menu and type in "cmd" (everything I tell you, type without quotes) and hit enter. In the black window, type "ping". Tell me the output that it gives you.

Hi - One of my computers in my office cant connect to any website even though it shows connected to the internet - the error it says is "the remote device or resource wont accept the connection" - I tried the fixes that I googled but so far no luck...any suggestions?
Did you try restarting? Do you have a content filter? Try another browser?

Tech Talk / Re: Obi 200 & Google Voice works Intermittenly
« on: October 27, 2019, 12:07:58 AM »
Live in Israel. Have been using 2 separate google voice accounts  with 2 separate ibo200 boxes. Itís worked perfectly for 2 years. A couple of weeks ago  it started working intermittently on both lines. Occasionally the phone rings. Most of the time it doesnít & we get an email of missed call. Most of the time we canít make a call. Seldom we can. Called support for Obi. Everything working perfectly on their end have all lights lit up, have dial tone. Went into google mail on desktop to try to make a call. It dials out & other phone rings, put when person picks up there is no connection & computer phone keeps ringing.I have of course reset ALL devices, including router. Nothing helping.  Google voice forums havenít helped
either. Any suggestions?
Do you have an internet filter?

I would like to filter my user account on a Windows server but I can't install a filter on the server as it is shared. What is the best program that I can install just on my user account for a whitelist (I have admin rights)? I access the server over RDP and I have Gentech installed on my local machine so I don't need content filtering on the server, just a few sites open.
Install on your local machine and it'll capture the remote session as well. I personally use it like this.

I am receiving incoming calls with my Obi/GV but for some reason when I pick up the phone I can't hear anything neither can the guy who called me. Any idea what the problem can be?
Power cycle the router and obi

Is there a way for a laptop to access the internet via a SIM card, the same way the Microsoft surface and iPads connect. I am think of adding it to my att unlimited plan for $20 monthly, but the plan is for tablets only looking for a workaround for laptops. Using hotspot is a lot more expensive.
There are laptops with cellular chips built in. Not sure about AT&t but with Verizon I'm nearly certain you can activate it as a tablet.

How do you deposit money in to the account other than depositing cash at ATMs. Can you do regular ACH? Mobile check deposit? If you can, this is huge

In September of 2017, Equifax announced a data breach that exposed the personal information of 147 million people

The FTC is working on a settlement and said consumers should visit for more information, and sign up for FTC email updates at about the settlement.

The settlement is per person so you can also do for your spouse, parents or adult children but youíll need to sign up with another email address for each individual

Does anyone know how to cancel your Hot mobile service?
I contacted this email to cancel my plan. This was a few years ago so it might have changed.

Newbie to OBI question: I bought an OBI and got a new GV number. When setting up the GV number it asks me where to forward the calls. Do I give my cell phone number and then connect the OBI, and after setup it won't go to my cell phone? I'm just confused about the process. Thanks.
After setup, you can uncheck your cell phone as a forwarding phone and GV will forward calls to your obi.
