Great product - been using this for a few years, of course in conjunction with Google Voice. Problem? Out of stock now @ Newegg :-(

Maybe a dumb question. I want to keep my landline. Can I use this to create an EXTRA phone line. What I mean is ... if phone rings on POTS (landline) line, then call is for me BUT if phone rings on Google Voice ( the OBi connected phone) then it is for another family member. Can I do that setup ? I don't want to pay anything to Callcentric for EXTRA phone #. If its discussed elsewhere any links will be much appreciated. Thank you

Just fyi.
You can port it in most cases http://www.obihai.com/porttutorial.html

We did ours in less than a week for a cost of $21 total. Now our 14 year-old phone number is a google voice number.

With callcentric for 911, we have full-featured phone service for $1.50/month. Some also use Anveo which is supposedly $.80/month for 911.

With cell phones plans all coming with unlimited talk time (mostly), these sort of services will die out...

Pure lies. For one, google was never to pull any plugs. Secondly yes you can port a landline, it just involves porting to a cell phone carrier first then to google.

I agree, don't get the Obi 110. I've owned the 110. It was very buggy and after 8 months completely died on me. I can't testify on the 202.
this is what holding me off jumping on this deal. I'm considering ooma telo.
My understanding is ooma will continue to work as free phone for the rest of its life vs obi will depend on google's mercy.
Yes, ooma cost more than obi but from investment stand point, ooma might be a better deal down the road.
if you have choice, which one you will select; ooma vs obi?

Not until there is complete cell service nation (world?) wide. My in-laws live on the side of the coastal mountain range and do not get cell service within 10 minutes of their house. This is the perfect way to have a home phone without paying monthly fees.

Missed the deal a couple of days ago, grabbed one this morning to give it a try.

I was reading through the previous deal thread and there are conflicting statements about alarm services through this device. More specifically, my Father pays $30 a month (least expensive plan offered) for landline service simply so he can have his AT&T alarm service, which is $47 a month. Almost $80 a month to have an alarm system. If I could set this up at his home it would help defray that cost. Will it work?

Thanks OP and repped.

I was looking at the Amazon page just about 30 minutes ago showing $49.99... so I'm glad I came back to see they went to $39.99! Ordered one to try it out. Thanks, OP.

I have had Ooma for a few years now and it is awesome. Google, isn't exactly free as they collect your voice data - but there is no money out of pocket.

Ooma has always been FREE, it's just the gov't who has imposed taxes/fees on the consumer. So Ooma gets nothing it's the gov't getting their cut, unless you buy Ooma's premier type services.

I'm on the original Ooma machine and it is still going strong years later running 24/7 365.

p.s. I also have an obihi, but I haven't installed it yet (had it for 6 months now). Just haven't had the need yet.

If you google "obi110 buggy", this thread is right at the top. You can't take advice from just one sample size. Ooma is $4-6 per month and could be going up in price too just like google which is free right now. And Ooma is not just all government fee, they are piggy back some fees on top of what government charge just like your phone company do.

If you use obi110 with google voice then no.
If you use your cell phone, then it's international roaming.
If you use the phone in your hotel, then it's international long distance.

This is just a physical device. Rates will vary depending what service you use. Google voice, the most popular, has free calls to US and Canada.

Is anyone aware if there is a way to use the obi110 to connect a dialup modem? I have a natrual gas measuring device that calls into company once a day with a reading and a telephone line is required. I have internet service at the location and I'd like to remove the telephone service and use just the obi.
