Topic Wiki

Google Voice may save a number as a home number, and in that mode it will not allow you to forward messages. In order to change that there's an option in legacy site.

I use OBI with my Google Voice, I can't get calls, and when I make outgoing calls I get.
"the number you dialed  was rejected by the service provider reason is 503" is anyone else having these [problems, and any ideas to fix.

I had the same issue, contacted Obi support, and they responded:
Hi,

There is a temporary service issue with Google Voice at this time, affecting certain Google Voice users with the OBi.  The issue is being worked on and please wait for Google to resolve this issue.  In the meantime, you don't have to do anything to your obitalk configuration.


Thank you, - OBi Support

I actually rebooted the router afterwards and it started working again - maybe try that

The front door callbox for my building requires me to program my apt buzzer to a local area code. Being that we only have cellphones in my house, we've been using my cell phone to answer the callbox, setting up a GV number with a local area code and forwarded the GV number to my cellphone and thats how i would be able to answer my front door. This has worked quite nicely for the past 3 years. Two weeks ago it just stopped working. I tried called the GV number directly from a diff phone (my personal cell phone should ring) but after a few rings it just goes straight to voicemail.

Does anybody know whats going on? Was the GV number somehow disconnected? Please help. Thanks!!

Through Google voice = calls
Hangouts (will display your Google voice as your caller ID) = data

Try again from incognito. I've had that before too.

I don't see any option for gv. Is it under something else?
