obi110 obitalk pain obihai retardation: analog phone required or FAIL

Inanity

obi110 allegedly a SIP device **REQUIRES** an analog phone to connect it to online service??

hmmm

fuun

There is no way to authenticate

  • the **internet** device from its control panel
  • over the internet
  • to the internet service website??

fire the meth addicts

What does the analog phone do?  When a star code is dialed

  • the internet device triggers a connection
  • over the internet
  • to the internet service

To what end?

It provides information unique to this instance of the device that demonstrates control of the device.  Is not the MAC address information unique to this instance of the device?  or serial number?  Why can one not perform this authentication SANS analog phone?

no joy.. obi high on meth: support@obihai.com

Interesting that this vexatious step is neither mentioned in sales propaganda nor in their obitalk configuration instructions:

there are plenty of detailed instructions how to connect the obi110 to privacy raping googlevoice

I look forward to unboxing a WRT54GS — happily retired in the garage — to provide the internets to my irksome obi110 near an analog phone as bringing an analog phone to obi110 will cause hours of reconfiguration joy once power is terminated.

When a firmware update is available

  • the internet device receives a communication
  • over the internet
  • from the internet service and shows a graphic in the internet device control panel

clue challenged?

Both obitalk and the obi110 are from the people who originally developed the wildly popular sipura ATAs.  This glaring oversight (*cough* laziness *cough*) is stunning.
