Unless there is a compelling reason, never, EVER, take an update.  If it ain't broke...MS will break it.

I had an update waiting for me on Friday.  I didn't install until I was leaving the option.  I suppose I'll see tomorrow.   :032:

Computers, Software & Accessories / Spell check gone on Windows 10?
« Last post by EV607797 on June 12, 2021, 10:57:40 PM »
Recently, the spell check feature, where it underlines misspelled words in red is gone.  I'm pretty sure that I didn't do anything to disable it and according to an online search, all of my settings are correct.  There was mention somewhere that it failed after the last Windows upgrade.  Has anyone heard anything about this?  It's gone from any page/program used since my last upgrade.

SIP Trunking / Re: Analog phone connection

We have been very sucessfull in connecting this for my customers, the  obi200 sure works well. And we connect providers such as google voice etc. But when connecting google voice we make them understand that by law we have to connect a piggy back account to meet the E911 requirements. Usually callcentric is who we connect them to.

A phone for emergencies?  You sure aren't going to be able have one using SIP or anything for that matter that is delivered over IP.  My suggestion for a real backup phone would be to add a second line to their cell account and just have a cheapo cell phone sitting there charging.  Keep in mind that CATV and even some phone service providers aren't much more reliable in emergencies, since their stuff requires power.  The only true emergency phone is a real POTS line on copper, but getting those is damned-near impossible in so many places anymore.

I'm a bit impartial to Magic Jack, in fact I use several of them, along with many friends and family.  It's all-in-one, so you pay for the service annually and there's no additional harware required.  Keep in mind though...  It too is an IP device and it requires power, so it isn't going to provide you true emergency service.

NEC is to SIP trunking what Verizon is to...well, I said "Verizon."  Do I really need to say more?

Yoda, if your looking to start making monthly recuring revenue then SIP trunking is a good start.  But for your friend then follow the advice given.

That OBi200 looks interesting, and might possibly be easier and cheaper. Get a google voice number and done!

The contract installer mentioned Magic Jack today. I had completely forgotten about them. But the google voice and IBi200 still looks most interesting. As usual, I've made things more complicated than they need to be, talking about sip trunks, etc.!

Thanks for the responses.

You can try this little device.  It advertises for Google Voice, but it connects to other SIP providers, too.

Jim,

Ugh.  Talk to Stacey before getting into bed with NEC on this.
