Sorry for the wait! This video is all about finally cancelling your ancient home phone line through your cable company, and how to keep it through Google Voice for free! It also touches on how I cut my bill in half after my cable company doubled it every month, and even tripled my internet speed while I was at it!

I have been using Google Voice for well over 10 years. And once you set it up here in the U.S., if and when you ever travel outside of the U.S., you can use Google Voice/Hangouts for free when calling/texting/video any U.S. or Canada number as long as you have any standard wifi connection. Thanks for the video, but I really wouldn't even use that box, I use my laptop as my Google Voice Box at home and any cell phones that can get a wifi connection on the go, and they have been doing a great job for over the past 10 years. I still give you a thumbs up for at least sharing how everyone should be cutting off their home phone lines as well as their cable services for cable tv, but not the internet.
you can get pstn/ata over voice over ip (SIP) gateways [routers] even (SIP) gateways with wifi so it cuts down the cables apart form the obvious pstn/ata + power cable
nice thing about using a sip number if some one call it your mobile + pstn/ata landline both ring

you can even get ones that support Skype calls too
You don't actually need to have your computer on to get call through the internet (known as VoIP), as you can route your landline calls to an app on your mobile/cell phone. They also have voicemail to email, so even if your mobile/cell phone is off you get your voicemails in your email inbox when you turn it back on. Google Voice also isn't launched outside of the US, so a cloud telecoms VoIP is a cheaper option.
YouTube is a Google service. I know what you mean though, they can't get much info from comments on here. I'm sticking with my normal landline and would not subscribe to a Google service for the same reasons as you.
The only phone you can get any privacy with is the Jumper phone ,the first one found was on an Asian drug dealer coming into Heathrow it was back engineered then the government use them ,only downside was it needed some using a mobile phone so it could share the frequency for a short time then hop onto another frequency , so no good in vast open space if there is no one around !
I host my VoIP server for whole my family since this way they save 10€ a month and i just pay 15€ for a SIM card which nomber is used to call others outside the network, i use it to, since then i can pay 40€ for 150/150 cable and 380 TV channels which is great and now i can speek to my relatives with much better voice quality, well this might seem craisy but in my family we are all really close and since i have biggest IT knowlage i host everything from webspace to game server or websites for theme, of course i do it for free bc they do some other things for me as well, also now we can speek all arround the world and older members of family enjoy that old fashion hard wiered phone, yeah only disandvantage is that you cant call numbers that are outside the network in other countries, i was thinking about setting up alongside Telenor SRB nomber a Google Phone Number for relatives in America just so they can use it like a normal phone, and about emergancy nombers i actually made phones tell exact location bc they have it all pre written down which is great but also here where i live they wheys ask you for adress so it doesnt matter
Only problem is that if they want to call some otside the network it will show just a normal mobile nomber - problem is you cant dile it since it interrups your call imediatly after you pressed call, but when we call each other inside our network it just pops up for ex #17 (Name) and if you want to call someone you just call #xx (where xx is a nomber of specific user) or search it in Phonebook since we all use the same brand of VoIP phones
Only problem we encounter is sometimes lot of us want to speek at the same time outside the network and there is 40 of us so i am planning on getting 4 more SIMs to stop that problem, and i would like to figure out how to enable outsiders to reach people from inside the network. Tho since i am a 17 y old KID this is a big thing, and also if anyone was interested how do i have that much money to burn well i do all sort of web hosting, game servers web pages or FastDLs for other websites, and it all started from a minecraft server that i started 2 years ago just for fun and now i am capable of paying house bills insted of my parrents and having enought pocket money which is kind a cool not to mention a lot of competitions won for IT ideas, yeah damn cool damn cool, nobady actually beleaves me but when they come to my house's basement they have a lot to see a lot of servers and of couse a PS4 to play FIFA with frends.
Only bad thing is IT MAKES A LOT OF HEAT A LOT eaven tho there is 56 servers with E3 1230v7 and 16GB of RAM and there are also 10 servers just for files with 70 HDDs per unit, tho power is really cheap here in Serbia, really
Aside from having 911 be more accurate at locating your house. What advantage does this have to an old Phone2Cell system?
My current home phone has a main phone in the kitchen & two bedroom cradle phones. I have my wife's cell phone & my cell phone hooked up to my home phone system. My home phone system cost $0 per month.
My cell phone service is through Verizon so it cost a fortune every month. (Over $100.) But I live in a small town in Nebraska. So it's not like I have much of choice in the matter. (ATT, T-Mobile, & Sprint don't have a cell tower in my area.)
Verizon doesn't offer landline service. And my landline provider doesn't offer cell phone service. I do get my internet through my landline provider though I don't have phone service with it. That would probably double my bill.. I'm currently paying $54 a month for Windstream high speed internet.
Richard Madden " tell them you've been looking at other providers"
That doesn't work when Verizon is the only cell phone service in my area. I guess I could threaten to switch to a satellite phone. LOL
Let me clarify something to all of the "conspiracy theory" guys and gals here..U ALL SIGNED THE "PATRIOT ACT"..no matter if its google, att or some small phone Cia...they hear us all...all the time...truly, I dont give a f&^*%..I'm not talking on the phone about putting a b(*^% anywhere...truth is the advantage of having extra protection is worth the sacrifice of some liberty...
Problem with this in the UK is that there is no way to get Internet without a home phone line. Unless you go very expensive routes like satellite, but the latency on that would make VoIP impractical. Our providers simply won't give you Internet only service.
I Do Not Understand Why Google Will Not Allow Canadians To Have A Google Telephone Number..After All Both Counties Share The Same Country Code Which Is One ( 1 )..Google Will Allow Canadians To Have Only A G Mail Address....
So glad I found this! I was checking OBi200 out on Amazon, and a bunch of people said they had a problem with incoming calls. They could call out fine, but no incoming calls were getting thru. Are you aware of this issue with Google Voice? If so, do you have any suggestions?
Tripled internet speed and cut bill in half..... ACTUALLY you tripled your internet speed for what you were paying before the bill went up. I have a landline with internet for £30 per month. I NEVER use my land line. I did have it all bundled with TV but in the UK you pay a TV license as well as your service provider subscription. I cancelled the TV subscription and don't pay TV license. In the UK you ring round the companies get the best quotes for your needs then play them against each other. You can usually get a discount if you tell your service provider you want to close the account.
This is complete bullshit
the way you know is because the guy from the cell phone company
- isn't indian or phillipino LOL
- isn't saying shit like "so, just to confirm you want to cancel your service" even though he just told him that.
- is actually listening to what you're saying
- doesn't have a stupid name like Princess or Destiny or Love
there is no way this is a real call to a service provider, I'm calling bullshit on this one
NOTHING IS FREE. Is allowing google to record your calls worth the lower phone bill? maybe they'll start adding audio ads to your conversations, lol. or maybe they'll use keywords from those conversations to send ads to your various internet contact points. MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE OPTING INTO TO GET THAT LOWER BILL. They will invade your privacy in search of profits in ways you can't yet imagine.
Sooooo you have to suck up to your phone company to keep your number. And I'm sure that's not a real internet rep I'm sure that's his friend from work. Plus why would we take our business straight to Google and be a direct customer to them no thanks
I was using Google Voice over VOIP using Obi wired into an office phone system, which I set up myself, about 5 years ago. I was renting office space and I just set up my little system in the server room and plugged it in and my personal line routed right into the same phone system everyone else used. It worked just like all the regular office phone numbers. It was great. Not too hard to set up, either.
Same goes for tv and a car, they're outdated and unnecessary.
EDIT: Also I'm always surprised at how expensive internet is in the USA. Here in Europe I'm paying half of what you pay after that procedure for almost twice your down speed (and same up, idk what that was for you) with unlimited data and a free home phone subscription still included, even if I don't use it.
Thanks mate, it all very interesting, however, you talk 2 fast, your music covers your speech and so I cannot make head or tail what you are trying to tell me, I have the idea you would like to help us, but I live in the UK, it is different over here we can't get that Jack to buy over here, and may be Google won't be interested in us.
I tried ObiHai and it was the biggest waste of time and money I ever ran into, there is so much BS to deal with it's maddening, no thank you, this technology SUCKS in my opinion and I'll gladly pay for my old crappy land line service !
