Google Voice + Gizmo = Fail

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The 72 hour "free phone service" experiment has failed. Only about 1 in 3 outgoing calls actually have worked. Call quality is terrible. Frequent drops. Sometimes the line will start doing a "fast busy" in the middle of the conversation. About 1 in 3 times I reboot my ATA it just flat-out can't connect Gizmo.

But the most frustrating thing is Google Voice's "Call" interface doesn't tell you what's going on. It just says "Now connecting...", which would be fine if it actually connected. When there's an error, or your phone never rings, you're left there wondering what the hell happened.
