OBiON Android

OBiON Android


OBiON is a free communication application (beta) which makes possible placing and receiving free calls to/from other OBi endpoints using the OBiTALK network and your device's Wi-Fi, 4G or 3G** connection to the Internet. Calls with regular land line and mobile phones are possible when using an Obihai OBi Voice Service Bridge device.

To use OBiON, please do the following:
1. Download OBiON from the Android Market.
2. Sign-up for an OBiTALK account at: www.obitalk.com
3. Log-in to OBiON with your OBiTALK user name and password and start making free calls.

- Please Note -
Your 9-digit OBi No. is viewable at the top of the OBiTALK screen of the OBiON app as well as in your Dashboard when you are logged in to OBiTALK.com.

**9-222-222-222 Test No.
At any time, you may call the OBiTALK Echo Service to test your connection.

How to Make and Receive Calls:
Using the 9-digit OBi No. you can call other OBi endpoints for free using any Wi-Fi, 4G or 3G** Internet connection.

If you call an Obihai OBi110 Voice Service Bridge, your call can be bridged to another service like your local Telco or a VoIP service to reach land lines and mobiles.

Your OBiON can receive calls from other OBi endpoints when they dial your 9-digit OBi No. Calls from a regular phone or the PSTN can ring your OBi No. by using an Obihai OBi110 Voice Service Bridge.

You may use an OBi device as a 'direct dial' gateway through which calls from your OBiON soft phone will ring the PSTN number directly using a VoIP or (if using an OBi110) analog land line service.

To use this feature, log in to the OBiTALK portal. In the configuration settings for your OBi soft phone, select an OBi Voice Gateway device from the drop-down menu through which you will make calls.

IMPORTANT NOTE for OBi Gateway Callers:
When you are using OBiON in conjunction with an OBi device (OBi110 or OBi100) as a voice gateway, unless preceded by a "**9", all dialed numbers will go to the gateway OBi device to be routed to the called number. To call an OBi device or soft phone directly you must first dial a **9 before its 9-digit OBi No.

Carrier roaming and cellular data charges may apply.

The people at Obihai are re-inventing the telephone at a personal level. "OBi" products come in the form of powerful Internet connected devices and applications configured for optimum savings and absolute convenience. OBi can help you start saving money and time immediately.

Unable to connect Obion to Obion When calling another person directly with the Obion App using the **9 followed by the soft phone number, it rings the other phone but we cannot converse

Pathetic app This was the worst app I have ever experienced. This app works only for obi numbers and not for other numbers. When you login on the soft phone app, you will get a new number to the softphone app. The softphone app can receive calls (obi number based call) only when the app is made to run in the background. Normally the user press the back key and the app exits but the user needs to launch the app and press the 'show home screen' button to keep the app to be running in the background. The worst part that I didnt like is that we will not be able to use the google voice number features from this app but only use the obi talk based features.

Needs work UI is a bit lacking. Would also be nice to have the option to run the app as a background service. I can't seem to be able to receive calls when the app is closed.
