First, you need to determine what service provider is triggering that state by checking the status of MessageWaiting.
Navigate to Voice Services-->SP Service (do this for each SP)-->Calling Features-->MessageWaiting


If it's Freephoneline, visit http://forum.fongo.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=19233#p75407.


Also visit https://www.obitalk.com/forum/index.php ... 26#msg9126
I'm using a Panasonic cordless set
a)And does its display or message waiting indicator denote that you have a message waiting?

b) What firmware version for your ATA are you using?
Status-->System Status-->Product Information-->Software version
If you're using 3.2.2 (Build:58xx), it may be a Obihai firmware bug (although I'm not sure why it would affect voicemail indicator): https://www.obitalk.com/forum/index.php ... 7#msg89227

Thank you!

I'll try out these suggestions when I'm home and hopefully fix the problem.

Oh and to answer your questions:

a.) It shows a message on the phones saying there is a VM

b.) I'll need to check that when I'm home.

It’s likely an issue related to FPL: visit http://forum.fongo.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=19233#p75407, and follow the steps in the order listed, carefully.

I don't want to discuss this situation further in the Freephoneline thread, but for OBi2xx ATA users, the latest firmware version is 3.2.2 (Build: 5859EX) and can be be obtained by either having Obihai push it to your device automatically or by downloading it manually and installing it yourself. That firmware version is being pushed automatically regardless of whether your device is out of warranty or whether you've paid $10 USD for extended support. The manual download link has been found for 3.2.2 (Build: 5859EX).

No. It's not Rogers.

Preferred codec should be G.711u, unless you prefer inferior sound quality, but that has nothing to do with your problem.

Voice-->SIP-->SIP Timer Values (sec)
Reg Retry Intvl should be 120 seconds
https://support.freephoneline.ca/hc/en- ... redentials (Failed Registration Re-Try Interval)



Click http://forum.fongo.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=310#p1366 for the PDF file you should be using.
NAT Mapping Enable: yes
NAT Keep Alive Enable: yes
NAT Keep Alive Intvl: 20

If you're experiencing a DNS issue,
try the IP address for the Proxy (server):
voip.freephoneline.ca:5060 is 208.65.240.44:5060
voip2.freephoneline.ca:5060 is 162.213.111.22:5060
voip4.freephoneline.ca:6060 is 162.213.111.21:6060

I would try 162.213.111.21:6060 first for Proxy.
The purpose of voip4.freephoneline.ca:6060 is to circumvent faulty SIP ALG functions in routers.
The only problem with specifying the IP address is if FPL ever changes the IP address for voip4.freephoneline.ca:6060, you would then need to update the IP address yourself again in the ATA.


And then click freephoneline-ca-free-local-soft-phone- ... #p26808549.
Follow those steps carefully, step by step all the way down to the bottom of the post.

Definitely check your phone jacks (obviously if one is dead, you can try configuring your FPL service on the other Line in the ATA), the phone (try a different one), telephone cables, jack splitters, alarm system or fax machine seizing control of the phone line, etc.





---
Btw, and I doubt this is related, but you can't have your FPL account simultaneously registered in your ATA and on another device (softphone/app). Only the most recent registration will be valid. The older registration will not. You may only register your FPL account on one device at any given time. Only one registration per FPL account is allowed at any time. The most recently registered device will ring for incoming calls. The previously registered device will not. Registration is required for incoming calls. Registration is not required for outgoing calls.

Configured the Obihai 200 ATA yesterday. Sound quality is great for both domestic and international call. Going to buy a obi blue tooth adapter. Just wondering if can get the step by step instructions only for 911 outgoing call through cell phone if the cell phone presents. For other calls, just remain as same. Thanks in advance.

I do not own an OBiBT, so I can't currently test whether the following works. Consequently, I would strongly advise you to post your question over at https://www.obitalk.com/forum/ or at http://www.dslreports.com/forum/voip. Also, probably asking Obihai wouldn't a be a bad idea either, given that your ATA is still under warranty: http://www.obihai.com/supportTicketFormA.


If you used the Obitalk web portal (www.obitalk.com) to configure your ATA, keep in mind that you must continue using it to configure your ATA. Otherwise whatever settings you change will eventually be overwritten by what you previously entered at obitalk.com anyway. If you wish to disable this behaviour, dial ***1. Enter that IP address into a web browser. Navigate to System Management-->OBiTalk Provisioning-->select Disabled for the method. Save. Reboot ATA. Now obitalk.com won't overwrite whatever changes you make via the device's LAN/web interface (via IP address).

Pick one method (obitalk.com) or the other (IP address of device) for changing device settings. But do not use both methods. Keep in mind that activating Google Voice requires using the Obitalk.com web portal (unless you're using 3rd party hacked firmware). Also, visit https://forums.redflagdeals.com/google- ... d-2189964/ if you're not using the latest firmware (at the time of the this post), 3.2.2 (Build: 5859EX).

(At Obitalk.com, you will need to enable and enter expert settings to do the following, if you want to use Obitalk.com.)




Anyway, in theory, you would navigate to Physical Interfaces-->Phone Port-->OutboundCallRoute

Then, in theory, you would add {911:bt} to the beginning of the outboundcallroute.
So when you dial 911, the call, in theory, gets routed via bluetooth. You just need to add what's bolded (do not copy and paste the entire line).

{911:bt},{([1-9]x?*(Mpli)):pp},{(<##:>):li},{(<**70:>(Mli)):li},{(<**82:>(Mbt2)):bt2},{(<**81:>(Mbt)):bt},{(<**8:>(Mbt)):bt},{**0:aa},{***:aa2},{(<**1:>(Msp1)):sp1},{(<**2:>(Msp2)):sp2},{(<**3:>(Msp3)):sp3},{(<**4:>(Msp4)):sp4},{(<**9:>(Mpp)):pp},{(Mpli):pli}


But that's just in theory. I accept no responsibility for any issues arising from using that method for dialing 911 or assuming that 911 calls will work perfectly fine.
I have no way of testing.

Also, by default, dialing **8 followed by a phone number should send that phone number over bt (bluetooth). Obviously, you're going to need to pair your cellphone first.

By the way, the OBi200 Freephoneline configuration PDF guide can be found here: http://forum.fongo.com/viewtopic.php?f= ... 805#p73839.
I suggest double checking your settings in particular if you've used the default settings from Obitalk.com.

If you have been on the fence about purchasing an unlock key I would recommend purchasing it now before it goes up again. Worth every penny.

Hi,

Hoping someone can give me a few pointers, I been running freephoneline for a few years. I 2 issues that I need help with. I am using obi200.

1) When I check my voicemail, the touchtone on my phone is not recognized? it works when I call rogers.
2) When are on a call at random times the phone just hangs up?
3) If I have connected to monitored alarm, is there any setting I should check to ensure best connection? I set this up a couple of years ago.

I was able to upgrade to 3.2.2 by doing ***6, however I did not get a choice to upgrade, it said please wait a couple of times and hung up but when I logged in, I noticed I am on 3.2.2.

Thanks you for your help
