Note: It happened on Saturday, but nothing on Sunday. I am sure it will come back. Thus, looking for a solution before it happens again.......

No. And they aren't calls.
Possibly the method you used wasn't really a solution and more closely resembled a game of Whac-A-Mole.and found a solution online to change the setting

If you want to be able to dial into an OBi200 or OBi202 ATA from a cellphone or have the ATA call you back (great if you have a free incoming minute plan or have unlimited minutes) to get access to FPL's service (or any other service that's provisioned on an Obihai ATA), you can do that with an Obihai ATA's Auto Attendant feature: https://www.obitalk.com/forum/index.php?topic=66.0. This does not use cellular data. It uses regular cellular airtime. Obihai's Auto Attendant is pretty useful. I've also explained how to accomplish this in the OBi200/202 FPL setup guide located at http://forum.fongo.com/viewtopic.php?f= ... 624#p74624. Refer to page 23.

Absolutely anything is possible. They haven't since 2009. And if they were going to, I'm sure they'd expect a flood of people like me to port out and gain a lot of public ill will at the same time.
It's not the same company. Cloud At Cost is a subsidiary of Freephoneline's parent company, Fibernetics.The same company

If you want to use data instead, you would use/buy a smartphone SIP app, such as Acrobits Groundwire, and provision your Freephoneline account on there, with the understanding that Freephoneline will not allow you to register the same account on multiple devices simultaneously. Only the most recently registered device will ring for incoming calls. So if you're using an FPL account at home and register the same FPL account elsewhere (on a smartphone), your home phone will no longer ring for incoming calls. But you will be able to make outgoing calls. Registration is not required for outgoing calls. It's required for incoming calls. This method uses either cellular data or Wi-Fi.
If you want incoming calls (and are not using the method outlined to block telemarketers with Obihai ATAs as described in the PDF guide) forwarded to your cellphone using regular cellular airtime, you can using Freephoneline's Follow Me feature: http://support.freephoneline.ca/hc/en-u ... Follow-Me-.
Fongo Mobile and FPL accounts are separate. You can not use an FPL number or account with Fongo Mobile. Fongo Mobile also uses cellular data or Wi-Fi.

It's not the same company. Cloud At Cost is a subsidiary of Freephoneline's parent company, Fibernetics.
Fibernetics is the largest privately held CLEC in Canada, and also, part of its business is running SIP services for enterprise customers/businesses.
Maintaining cloud services/data servers for consumers is not necessarily the same as maintaining SIP servers that can be easily serviced
as a part of other Fibernetics' ventures, namely Fongo.
And my last point would be that Fibernetics makes money on each incoming call coming from outside its network. So Freephoneline generates some revenue from incoming calls. Conversely, (beyond the one-time fee), if Cloud At Cost doesn't charge annual or monthly fees, I fail to see how it can generate revenue on an ongoing basis.
What Cloud At Cost is doing is certainly not making Fibernetics look good, especially on Reddit and at dslreports. But Cloud At Cost is not the same
company as Freephoneline. Only the parent company is.

Yeah, actually, I've been following the situation online at dslreports, reddit, etc. I don't feel the business models are similar.
