I was up and running in about 5 Minutes or less. (Using Asterisk)

After finding from a user at the forum that obihai now has a VoIP service I quickly took a dive in to the abyss of testing... I quickly learned that obivoice is in bed with intelafone...
After a week of testing service has been very reliable and quality is as good as it gets with u711. Free faxing and faxing to emails is a + on my book.
It didn't take much to convince me to signup with they 24 month BYOD promo @ 59.99. That's easy math...

Some on the voip forum are discussing and tearing a part their TOS and what not....
A+ on my book so far

Me * Asterisk + ObiVoice / 59.99 {24} =

Update 02/02/14: Service is still very solid. A++

It looks like Obivoice is actually Intelafone. Everything from Intelafone is Obivoice. Seems like a brand they purchased.

Plain asterisk setting for obivoice

Hi, when you say you are using asterisk, do you mean plain asterisk or asterisk with Freepbx or something like that? If it is plain asterisk, can you share the .conf files that need to be set up? Thanks.

I am using plain vanilla asterisk... Here is my config:

Peer:

[obivoice]
type=peer
defaultuser=YOURUSERNAME
fromuser=YOURUSERNAME
secret=YOURPASSWORD
host=sms.intelafone.com
fromdomain=sms.intelafone.com
context=obivoice-inbound
insecure=port,invite
disallow=all
allow=ulaw
port=5060
qualify=yes

Outbound context:

[obivoice-outbound]
exten => _9NXXNXXXXXX,1,Set(TRUNKCHECK=0)
same => n,Set(PEERCHECK1=obivoice)
same => n,NoOp(-- ${PEERCHECK1} status: ${SIPPEER(${PEERCHECK1},status)} --)
same => n,ExecIf($["${SIPPEER(${PEERCHECK1},status):0:2}"="OK"]?Set(TRUNKCHECK=1))
same => n,GotoIf($[${TRUNKCHECK}=0]?${EXTEN},failover)
same => n,Set(CALLERID(num)=CID)
same => n,Verbose(0,${CALLERID(num)} is calling ${EXTEN})
same => n,Dial(${OBV}/${EXTEN:1})
same => n,GotoIf($[${DIALSTATUS}=CHANUNAVAIL]?${EXTEN},failover)
same => n(failover),Dial(${GSM}/${EXTEN})
same => n,Hangup()

I dont use it for inbound only for outbound. If you need help with the inbound context please let me know and ill be more than glad to help.

Re: Plain asterisk setting for obivoice

XCOM,
Thanks. The first step is to use for outbound for me also. I will try it out and let you know the result. I will certainly ask for your help when it comes to use it as inbound as well.
I have some additional questions hope you can answer. In your dialplan, it looks like you need to dial 9 first followed by 10 digit number for obivoice. Is this correct? Does obivoice take both 10 and 11 digit (with a 1 first) numbers? Overall how is your impression about their service and call quality?
I really appreciate your quick response and offer for future help.

Re: Plain asterisk setting for obivoice

Call quality is as good as it's going to get with ulaw
What I can tell you for sure is that I do not have any issues with calls and they are as clear as they can get.

Yes I dial 9 as I have several outgoing routes.

obivoice will take 10 or 11 digit dialing.

Good luck.

Regards.

Re: Plain asterisk setting for obivoice

I signed up a trial account and did some testing. The tool to set up the obi device works after I reset the password. They have changed the description on their web page after I pointed out about this. I also tried Asterisk 1.8, Csipsimple, Xlite, ATAs. Everything works fine for both outgoing and receiving calls. For Asterisk 1.8, I essentially followed localphone's conf file example. It is pretty simple and worked out fine.

monthly tax

Do they charge tax upfront when you signed up for the 2-year term or will it be billed later? Thanks.

Re: Service interruption ???

THANX , I was just wishfully hoping it was not just me.
Do you know of a way to contact 'Obivoice' other than the the # provided on Facebook ???
Or would you have any ideas on what could be causing my troubles ???
