SuiteAdvantage and OBi100 configuration

OneSuite is now listed as one of the service providers at OBiTALK.com, the web portal for configuring all Obihai VoIP devices.

What does that mean? It means all OneSuite users can now easily get their existing analog phones to work with OneSuite using OBi devices. And we are going to show you how!

In this guide, we will go through configuring the OBi100 using OBiTALK web portal in order to connect to the OneSuite server, so that you will be able to place and receive calls using your OneSuite account and benefit from our super low international calling rates.

First, to register your OBi100, you need to create an account at www.obitalk.com. What comes in handy is that you could just log in using your Google account to minimize the hassle of managing numerous online accounts. Or, you can always create a separate account if you want.

Once logged in, click on “Add Device” in the left menu and follow the instructions to properly add the device to your network by connecting it to your router or gateway. The device should be plugged in and the status lights should be green.

Uncheck the box of “I want to configure GoogleVoice on this device” and click “Next”.

Follow the instruction on the next page to add your OBi device.

Confirm your device information on the following page.

    12. After the reboot, check the status to see if you are registered with OneSuite. You will also see the status icon shows green color to verify that you are successfully connected. If not, then review the settings above and make sure everything is configured as instructed.
    13. If registered, you are now ready to make OneSuite VoIP calls with OBi100. It’s that easy!

    To call a US number, just dial the area code and phone number. For international calls, dial 011, followed by the country code, area code then phone number. SuiteAdvantage users can now dial *0 on the phone to access your voicemail, also the phone will play a stuttered dial tone to notify you there’s a new voicemail.

    We hope you enjoy your OBi device and feel free to share any feedback with us.

    Happy calling!
