nope, it's not out of context. it refers to the free incredible pbx faxing solution you keep plugging, but the solution is not completely reliable. you never refer to the FREE faxing solution that requires a specialized fax trunk at extra cost in order to have reliable faxing service. how exactly are you able to sit down?
using skype's service, not necessarily requiring a pc which is the IGNORANT assertion YOU made of all skypeout calls. you also make the STUPID claim that 35% of all small businesses are using pc based skype despite the fact that you don't actually need a pc to skype.
i'm sure you can do your own google search instead of being a lazy chica. it's really easy to find.
but that's not what you said first. you said "Since Google already gave notice it's ending support for Google Voice" but when asked to clarify your statement, "ending support" became changing protocol. as far as english goes, i'm pretty sure those don't mean the same thing. and if it does go belly up, there goes the incredible pbx free faxing solution. i guess you should stop plugging that free somewhat reliable service and start plugging the incredible pbx faxing solution that requires a specialized faxing trunk at an additional cost.
it's conjecture that this will end the way things are now, not a FACT. while we're conjecturing, there's the possibility obihai works with google to gain access to the protocol.
don't forget, i'm still waiting for your evidence on the typical range of pc connected bluetooth headsets. and again, what's your incredible pbx solution for a family of 5 in a 5000 square foot house?
The local and/or remote faxing features Incredible PBX provides for free through Google Voice are superior to the zero faxing options the 100 series Obi supports and the local only faxing option provided by a 200 series Obi, which offers the same reliability through Google Voice for $60 vs for FREE with Incredible PBX. As the nerdvittles article indicates and in my own experience, faxing through Google Voice works reliably well enough, with the caveats that can be expected from using a Google Voice line as a Voip fax trunk. In case you're too stupid to figure it out, having a reasonably good faxing platform for free is better than not having any faxing functionality at all for someone that needs those features and doesn't want to pay for a more reliable option or pay $60+ for a 200 series Obi with the same faxing reliability though Google Voice. Go back and read my posts instead of taking snippets out of context and you may understand that the features offered by a $30 Obi or even $60 200 series Obi is not the 'usability' everyone is needs and that the Obi adds nothing in terms of the features an Incredible PBX has for free.
Again go back and read my posts instead of taking snippets out of context and you will see the responses regarding a PC based platform like Skype were in the context of responding to your claims of a $0 PC-based Incredible PBX as having no usability because you must be 'tethered in front of a PC' or 'live in a 200 sqft apartment'. The fact is MILLIONS of people on a monthly basis do make calls on a PC using Skype and other PC based telephony services. There are also thousands of businesses among them call centers that use a PC based telephony platform with a headset. Again, you continue to provide NO source for what you claim regarding Skype's widely published figures that 35% of small businesses use Skype as a primary telophony platform proving your just an IDIOT that like to talk crap on the Internet instead of backing up what you say.
If you had any clue about how Obi is able to make calls through Google Voice, you would understand what I meant, which again is 100% accurate. Google is dropping support for the Google Voice platform i.e. replacing it with Google Hangouts, which as the article I linked describes, Google is replacing Google Voice's XMPP based protocol with the proprietary telephony protocol used in Google Hangouts. Even in the worse scenario that all Google Voice features cease to work, an established open source business telephony platform like Incredible PBX will be in a better position to offer an alternative solution and even in the unlikely event that were not the case, Incredible PBX is a FREE option and I have many other uses for the Raspberry Pi that I run it off of. By comparison, the limited features and options of an Obi, add nothing to my Inedible PBX setup which is exactly why I don't own an Obi.
As I already pointed out, Incredible PBX can scale to meet your specific needs and the size of the location is irrelevant to it's functionality. Someone in a home or business with a backup/file server can run it from there and provide phone and fax service to the entire location through any ATA adapter and through any softphone locally or on the go using a headset on a PC or mobile device. The range of a bluetooth or any other wireless headset depends on where you use them and the type you buy. For someone looking to multitask on the phone around a home or office it provides an inexpensive hands-free option that doesn't require being 'tethered to a PC' as you claim or holding a handset while you try and do something else. If a wireless headset range is an issue for you, in addition to using a headset, you can also use any analog cordless phone you want using a POTS adapter. From there you can go with any other Voip hardware solution that is more tailored to your needs such as a using a Raspberry Pi as a PBX server or multi-line ATA adapter or Sip phones. The features of an Incredible PBX setup remain the same no matter what your setup is and the configuration options you have with an Incredible PBX are limited only by your specific requirements compared to the limited pre-packaged options you get with an Obi.
In case you're too stupid to figure it out, having a reasonably good faxing platform for free is better than not having any faxing functionality at all for someone that needs those features and doesn't want to pay for a more reliable option
ah so the caveats keep coming out. first you said it provides zero cost faxing for businesses. now it's zero cost faxing for people that want something that works good enough. LOL
Again go back and read my posts instead of taking snippets out of context and you will see the responses regarding a PC based platform like Skype were in the context of responding to your claims of a $0 PC-based Incredible PBX as having no usability because you must be 'tethered in front of a PC' or 'live in a 200 sqft apartment'
LOL. who said "no usability?" that must be how you feel about being tethered to a PC.
Again, you continue to provide NO source for what you claim regarding Skype's widely published figures that 35% of small businesses
again, you continue to believe everything you read on the internet about skype and it's "widely published" statistic regarding 35% of small businesses. it's as if a blogger planted that out there to see what morons picked it up. LOL.
Google is dropping support for the Google Voice platform i.e. replacing it with Google Hangouts, which as the article I linked describes, Google is replacing Google Voice's XMPP based protocol with the proprietary telephony protocol used in Google Hangouts.
which you mentioned later. like how you mentioned a pi solution would cost $50, but with usability shortfalls. like you kept plugging zero cost faxing, which turns out of to be semi-reliable. as time goes on, your bold statements become more and more misleading.
The features of an Incredible PBX setup remain the same no matter what your setup is and the configuration options you have with an Incredible PBX are limited only by your specific requirements
and by how much more you want to spend in order to get the same usability that a $30 obi provides with its 24x7 low power consumption telephony, 2 minute setup and its ability to use your existing phone wiring and phones.

You are basically asking me what makes RIM juicy and the only way to do that is to compare the patents of Microsoft, Nokia, Google/Motorola, etc. That my friend is millions.
How to get the 5 year renewal for $79.99 + taxes instead of $99.99 :
Step1: Go to your MJ homepage and do a live chat, I chatted with the guy for a minute or two and noticed a little popup on the right hand side corner which said "click here to end chat and get your 48 hour reward"
Step2: on clicking it it opened up a 1 question survey on how well the guy did.
Nothing after I submitted it, 5 mins later an email popped up and I was able to get the offer
Magic Jack 5 year renewal for $79.99 save $20.00, new MagicJack Plus for $59.95 save $10, 1 year renewal for $24.95 save $5.00
If you were able to save some money, reps are appreciated !
(Attached pictures for the email proof and the button to click on the chat window)
I do not think this is YMMV because every time I opened up the live chat window I was able to see the 48 hr reward link )
still works the same - renewal was 85 after fees. I can't say anything bad about it - has worked just fine for 2 years and ipad/iphone apps are very handy as a wifi phone when travelling and no phone service is availible
For me, it only shows 5 Yrs renewal for $80, when I select ADDITIONAL magicjack adopter for $40. I cannot simply select 5 yrs for $80. The 5 Yrs price jump back to $100, as soon as I remove $40 adopter.
