Using Google Voice as a landline with Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Haim Lichaa wrote up steps on how to use Google Voice as a landline with a Raspberry Pi.
Have you ever wanted to stop paying for a landline but didn’t know how? In this article I’ll review the steps I used to configure a VoIP land line using a SIP interface through a Raspberry Pi based PBX with Freeswitch and Google Voice. In other words, make free calls! NOTE: You will not have 911/Emergency services with this solution!
I spent the better part of the weekend reading wiki’s, blogs, manuals and other posts and had to piece them all together to get my own personal solution working. I thought it would be useful to write it up and share my experiences.
I’ve tried to capture my steps as best as I could. Please let me know if anything does not work or needs to be amended.
