Thanks for the info... Any recommended guides on how to set this up correctly?
Depends on how complicated you want. My suggestion is to start with one account (you can put 4 different accounts on OBI). The device in its default configuration works out of the box with one account.

Read the sticky threads at https://www.obitalk.com/forum/

There is also an official PDF at https://www.obitalk.com/info/docu...nGuide.pdf

It is big, but skim through some basic topics first.

The forum is fantastic, they have some knowledgeable folks there who respond and will hold your hand to guide you. Concentrate on these first:

1. How to setup the device and how to add your first account. Assuming you are using GV, start with that first. Note that you can modify the device parameters (settings) via obitalk portal or on the device itself. Go with the portal initially.

2. Learn about something called "DigitMaps". They are the foundation of routing incoming and outgoing calls. Example, in my setup, I have 1 CC and 2 GV accounts on the device. When I dial "011..." (international outgoing), I want it to go via one of the GV account. If I dial "911", it needs to go out via the CC account.These kinds of customization is done using DigitMaps.

3. Setup shortcuts to check your VM.

PM me if you get stuck. Good luck!

EDIT: If you use CC, their website has a decent guide on how to set it up on OBI.

You seem very knowledgable about this. I have an old original Ooma voip system which the unit will eventually fail. Can I use this system for that? The new Ooma system would cost more & they will charge tax every month for new units which I'm actually paying nothing right now. THanks in advance.

I am not sure about Ooma. Do they provide SIP based interface or do they explicitly support OBI? If so, you can use OBI for Ooma. If they do not, you will probably need to port your number out to GV or CC or some other VOIP provider.

For example, even though GV does not support standards based SIP interface (even though it supports VOIP), they do explicitly support OBI. On the other hand, CC natively supports standard SIP, so that works as well.

EDIT: I just looked at Ooma site and they don't offer standard SIP interface. So I think you will need to port your Ooma number out to some other carrier that works with OBI.
