It is happening again!

I cannot get any phone calls. The prompt is 'The xx you are trying to reach isn't available. Please leave a message'.

However, I am able to initiate a phone call.

Tried to power it off and on again and didn't help. Monitored it with obitalk account and everything seems fine.

Tried to open a ticket with freephoneline but no where to go. Does anyone know what to do next?

Thanks in advance.

Same issue on my end. According to https://status.fongo.com/ there was some System Maintenance/Upgrade this morning.

I am experiencing the same problem. Just wondering if anybody else is using Bell Fibe as their ISP. I don't know when calls started going right to voice mail, but the first I found out about it was 11:00 Am today. We had a small problem with Bell Fibe this morning but it was rectified by restarting the modem. While everything else in the house internet related is working fine now, calls are still going directly to voice mail on our freephoneline number. I know it is a longshot and the two problems are most likely not related, but I thought I would ask anyway. Thanks!

I am in the same boat. Incoming calls are going straight to voicemail as well.

Two days in a row I get a OBiTALK device service alert, outage at 3 am and resumes at 3:15 am. Anyone else?

I am still not receiving incoming calls. Two different setups, in two different cities.

Even FPL line to FPL line is getting the "Person at this number ...".

Have you tried restarting VoIP hardware? I had to restart this morning.

Depends on what VOIP box you purchase but the setup is pretty simple and should take like 15min or so.

Same here since a few months ago. I was thinking it's my OBi202 device issue. From what you guys mentioned, it's like a real issue with FPL.
One thing that I've not tried is to use the application of the FPL on a PC since the FPL don't have the APP on iphone.

Before this, I have been pretty happy for 10 years. For $50 dollars, it is a good deal indeed.

Not to sound like a butthat or anything.

How have you guys had SOO many problems with OBI and FPL.

I literally bought an OBI, found this guide on setting it up. Have never had an issue since (other than network outages or tweaking settings for better quality).


Am I doing something wrong or ...
