I migrated from Google Voice and everything started to work right away except inbound calls.  All inbound calls would go directly to voicemail and none of my forwarding phones would ring either.  

I contacted support 4 times and the first 3 they just told me I had to wait longer for the port from GV to Fi but finally after 5 days I discovered that "Do Not Disturb" had been turned on in GV.  I didn't turn it on, as I was receiving calls right before the port with no problems.  In the process of porting, it somehow got turned on.  To get to GV, you have to use the link at the bottom of the Fi page.  Once I turned it off, calls starting ringing my phones as expected. 

Hope it helps someone else.  Scratch that, hope that doesn't happen to anyone else.  Bad first experience with Fi and their support.

So I was fighting with Google Voice and the Call Phone option in Gmail because it wouldn't connect calls when connected to the company VPN.  Found I had to add 2 persistent routes because Google uses 1 address for the TCP and another for the UDP connection.  

Persistent Routes:
  Network Address          Netmask  Gateway Address  Metric       1       1

Too bad I didn't get a picture in better lighting. Have to wait to do that I guess.

Computers have just gotten ridiculously cheap. $350 for 15.6" 1366x768 LED; Intel Dual-Core B950 2.1GHz Sandy Bridge; 4GB RAM; 500GB HDD; DVD burner; 802.11n; Windows 7 Home Premium; HDMI output; HD webcam; 6-cell battery; 1yr warranty. Picked it up last night. Still transferring files from the old computer. That is the big downside to large hard drives.

Nuclear fission was discovered closer to the invention of barbed wire than to the present day.

Come on Google Voice, I really would love to just say "1" when I answer the phone rather than having to find the key. And it would make it so that I could use BT headsets without having to find my phone.

Please suggest some features here:
