In 2007 there was so much hoopla in blog posts and forums about using Google GrandCentral with Gizmo Project for inbound IP calls, I thought I would post this video that I found on YouTube. Not only does this show visually how to set up both accounts, but it gives the reasoning behind signing up for Gizmo to get a free telephone number associated with a SIP account.
According to information found on the GrandCentral website, Gizmo is the only SIP service that interfaces with GrandCentral. I find that hard to believe, but here is the quoted reference from the GC Help Center, followed by instructions on adding a Gizmo Number.
"We currently only forward calls to Gizmo Sip Numbers. Learn how to add a Gizmo forwarding number."
Adding a Gizmo Forwarding Number
To add a Gizmo forwarding number, first you need to identify your Gizmo SIP number, In your Gizmo client, got to Edit >My Profile. Your SIP number is displayed below your name, and most likely starts with 747. Enter this number as one of your fowarding phones. Here's how:
- Sign in to your GrandCentral account.
- Go to the Settings tab.
- Click the Add/Edit Number link right above your phones, to the right of the page.
- Select Gizmo in the drop-down menu.
