ReSyncing your Obihai

If you encounter any issue with your Obihai phone adapter's service you can resync the Obihai device with your PhonePower account from your ObiTalk portal.

To resync your Obihai device with your PhonePower account first log into your ObiTalk portal and then:

Click to enlarge

• Click on Approved Service Providers.
• Select Phone Power.

Click to enlarge

• Select the phone port (SP1 or SP2) you want to use.
• If the device is already synced, PhonePower will be greyed out. In which case click the To restore an existing account click here button.

Click to enlarge

• This will connect you to your MyAccount portal where there will be a Resync My Device button.

After you have pressed the “Resync My Device” button, the Obihai adapter has to go through a specific light sequence. The power light will go out and come back on and then the phone 1 and phone 2 lights will blink. Once they are done blinking and are steady the sync sequence will be complete.

If you're deleting a SP service, the phone 1 and phone 2 lights will be blink, but will be off once it's done deleting. Only the Power and WAN light will be on.

Please note that if you're syncing or deleting different SP Services you must wait until the light sequence is complete otherwise you can risk abnormal behavior or no registration.

Note: If you are still experiencing service issues with your Obihai after 15 minutes, or any other irregularities appear, please contact our support department at 1-888-607-6937 option 3 for additional assistance.

Disable Direct IP Dialing

Alert.png If you follow the approved service provider config method you will not need to worry about this. It will be done when you first set up your device.

Disabling Direct IP Dialing is highly recommended. Direct IP Dialing can allow anyone on the internet to make your phone ring, without placing an actual call.

Google Voice Port Over

Alert.png Porting your Google Voice phone number to us is not required, it is completely optional.

When signing up for service, you have the option to spoof display number to be your Google Voice number.

In turn, you will need to set your Google Voice call forwarding settings to forward all Calls to the Service number on the account with PhonePower. (If you are experiencing issues with the calls being forwarded from Google Voice to PhonePower, please contact Google Voice.

Instructions to forward your Google Voice Number -

  • Note: A good way to test if it is an issue with PP or GV, call the service number (PhonePower Number) and see if the calls complete normally)
  • Note: If you get a Canadian Number with PhonePower, your google voice will not be able to forward to it due to the limitations of Google Voice.

If you wish to consolidate your call forwarding services to one provider, you can port your number from Google Voice to PhonePower. In order to process this you must follow the steps below:

• Unlock number with google voice.

• Once unlocked Email [email protected] with the number you wish to port and any type of access/authentication code (Pin Code).

  • Calling into Billing will not expedite the process, they will still require an email sent in with the request

Obihai SIP Port Change

  • We recently came across an issue where we noticed that the “UserAgentPort” value was set to 5060, this is causing possible registration issues. We are actively working to correct this issue with our sync script. Until such time there is a work around.

• This issue generally exist when the Obihai Adapter is behind a router. The routers SIP ALG (Application-level gateway) is what is causing the problem. Changing the port to 12060 gets around that ALG and allows the device to gain and maintain registration.

Click to enlarge

1) Log into the obihai Configuration page

2) Expand Voice Services on the left side

3) Click on the SP Service you need to modify. (Eg: SP1)

4) Locate the field called "X_UserAgentPort"

5) Click the check box to the right to remove default.

6) Change this value from 5060 to 12060.

7) Click on Submit.

  • This should resolve the registration issue. If the issue does not correct itself please contact technical support. Syncing the device may revert this change.
