Turns out that the Google Voice/Obihai marriage has been rehabilitated.

I connected my google voice number through Obitalk webpage and it worked great, ringing and all.. I realized now that my phone isn't ringing. Meaning someone calls my google voice/house number and I have no clue till I see in my email a missed call/vm.
Is there a way to fix this?

Is it set to ring first or for VM to pick up right away ?

It rings when you call the number, just not on my house phone.

is it possibly a volume setting on your phone that's shut off ?

Nopes. Was pretty sure but doubled check for you.

Boom! figured it out:)

In gv settings, somehow the fwding number was not ticked (possibly b/c it got knocked off when creating a diff gv number..). I set "forward calls to:" google chat and puff, it worked:)
