So I'm sure as some of you know, May 15th, 2014 is the last day you'll be able to use the method I showed in my tutorials because Google is disabling XMPP over Google Voice.

Does anyone have any solution so far? I'm willing to make updated videos for any similar solution that works as well as this and is very cheap to free. I guess I'm going to have to port my number off of Google Voice to somewhere else but I'm not sure to where just yet. I'm going to keep looking for a solution but I'm going to need some advice and help.

Get a free number from ipkall. Use callcentric or voip cheap free accounts. Setup ipkall to direct the incoming call to either free accounts sip uri (voip call). Setup GV with ipkall number. For out going calls get voice callback from market and use it to have GV call your ipkall number. You will need a soft phone like zoiper or bria and have that logged into either callcentric or VoIP cheap. It sounds complicated but its really not. Ipkalls site has directions and access to the voxilla forums which explain this much better than me. This setup works well for me so far.

I don't think Google is going to leave us high and dry here. I ported 2 of my numbers to Google voice and bought a computer specifically for this tutorial. (In fact, I'm still going to complete the tutorial because it will save me money between now and when Google drops XMPP) The below article is from May, but, I don't think it too late to hold out hope that voice will still be able to make outgoing calls over a data connection.

Well May 15th came and went and Google Voice is still working thus my tutorial is still useful. Not bad!

Since no QoS (quality of service) videos exist on YouTube for Tomato firmware, I think that's going to be what I do next. People deserve to be able to set up a meaningful and practical environment on their network in a short amount of time without having to earn a PhD first.

I'm glad to see that this is still working for us. There is something which has been baffling me since I've had this setup. I managing multiple google voice accounts, but when I dial out from an extension associated with my second or third account, it always shows the Caller ID of my first GV Account.

In the video where you show us how to add multiple GV accounts, outbound routes, under dialing patterns, you state that's where I should add the Caller ID to whichever account is associated with it. However, when I do this, I am not able to make any calls. It's as if there are no matches with the dialing pattern so the call does not go through.

When I add a prefix under dialing patterns such as "8" or "9" it will dial out with the correct trunks with Caller ID, but am not able to get it working without dialing such a prefix. If I only wanted people to see just one number this would be great, unfortunately I have multiple people using this Asterisk server and would like them to have the proper Caller ID when dialing out. Otherwise, everyone would end up returning calls to the wrong person.

I hope I'm explaining myself correctly and that you understand what's going on. I've tried the Force Trunk CID under Connections, then Trunks but it still chooses the first available trunk and uses that ID. Ugh... I hope this is clear. Anyway... greatly appreciate your help.
