Is there any way to do such a call? I've had both now for 45 days, have faxed on both, and am pleased except for this issue (and no *67 of course, but I knew blocking could not be part of the deal).

I'm not sure about GV and 3-way calling, never attempted it, but the mJ can do 3-way calling as long as both of the other callers call into you. mJ can't initiate the calls and do 3-way calling.

GV with an OBI can do 3 way just like a regular Telco can. You can call both parties and initiate a 3 way , unlike the MJ, like Dave said, they both have to call you... GV on it's own without an OBi?? Not really sure but one can assume it can since OBi is using GV.. Maybe call with GV and then log back in and make another call and when it calls back your # you can make it a 3-way.

I'm looking at myglobalconference.com with Google Talk for details. GV, no.

How do you go about accomplishing this on Obi hardware? Dial the 9 for the first line, flash, dial **1+number for 2nd line, flash, dial **3+number for 3rd line, then what?

You can do it all on one line...

From page 13 of the OBi Device Administration Guide (OBiDeviceAdminGuide.pdf):


3-Way Calling

3-Way Calling allows you to talk to two parties at the same time with everyone on a telephone at a different location. To use 3-Way Calling, when you are in a call with another party and want to add a second to the conversation, press the “flash” button or depress and release the switch hook on your phone. You will be presented with a second dial tone and the first party will be placed on hold. Dial the second party. When they answer, you will be able to inform them that you intend to connect them with the first party (now on hold) and have a conference. At this point press the “flash” button or depress and release the switch hook on your phone. This will connect the first party, the second party and yourself. You can all continue to talk together.

Also, I found this for folks who do not yet have the Obi device.

Haven't tried it personally and another post flamed the fact that having callers call at a preset time was weak, but it might be a solution.

Instead of having to send out a conference number and access code to people calling in, you can now just ask them to call you at a preset time and you can conference them in as they call.

When you're on a call and a new call comes in (call waiting required), you'll have an additional option to conference the caller with your existing call. You can conference up to four callers together.
