Wiki Community Board This can and should be used by you to post updated deal information. Be sure to read this because it may contain answers to your questions!
Orders are showing with a status of BACKORDERED. Just a FYI
Consumer Reports (June 2012) rated Ooma #1 over all other VOIP, Landline & Fiber Optic phone companies.
Ooma didn't charge monthly fee but they charge tax (include expenses to collect the taxes). It is as high as $100+ a year. Look up the amount you'll pay monthly here: https://go.ooma.com/tax_calculator
60043, $8.31 a month (10/11/2012) increased to $8.52 (12/6/2012)
60603, $7.81 a month (10/11/2012) increased to $8.05 (12/6/2012)
30115 - only $3.72 (9/26/2012) increased to $3.76 (10/11/2012), so varies a lot
21093 6.94 a month (10/02/2012) decreased to 3.73 (01/08/2013) (state, county, other, and county utility tax was removed)
People in Ooma forum indicate once the tax/fee is fully implemented, it should closely match your postpaid cellphone/local landline bill in term of fee/taxes. So check your cellphone/landline bill to see eventually how much fee/taxes you will need to pay if your area hasn't implement all the state/county/city fee/taxes yet.
Ooma can change their tax/fee without notify the customer. They will just charge your credit card with the new fee. Some Ooma customers were surprised after they check their credit card bill and notice the big increase in monthly fee (from $3.xx to $6.xx after they include the county, city, local taxes/fee.) Again, if you don't pay attention to your credit bill, you may not notice the increase.
Alternative to Ooma (especially if you need Ooma Premier features)
Vonage works out at $15-$16 a month inc fees/taxes when you sign up at www.getbasictalk.com similar to the ooma premier but you don't have to buy the box. www.getbasictalk.com

http://www.itpvoip.com/ - ITP Voip, $9.99/month basic plan include unlimited incoming call and 500 outgoing within US/Canada/Puerto Rico.

If you are switching from POTS to Obi or other voip services, in many states the old phone line will remain active for calling 911. You just leave your phone connected and they disabled outgoing calls at the phone company computers.
www.smart911.com - Smart911 is a free service that allows citizens across the U.S. to create a Safety Profile for their household that includes any information they want 9-1-1 to have in the event of an emergency. Then, when anyone in that household dials 9-1-1 from a phone associated with their Safety Profile, their profile is immediately displayed to the 9-1-1 call taker providing additional information that can be used to facilitate the proper response to the proper location.
Can check availability under the About page.
cheapest pay-per-minute is by localphone.com at 0.5 cent/minute to US numbers
MagicJack/Nettalk/Ooma can be connected to the POTS line of this obi110 - look at obitalk forum for more info on this. (in theory these are next best to free GV)
For people want alternative to GV, here are some good quality and/or low price Voips. Some of those VoIP Services offer phone number in other countries also. Remember this is a standard SIP device so you are not tie to GV and any specific Voip.
Here are some of the Voip that offer very low price International Calls

I don't think that you can go wrong with this service.
I have had it for about 3 years now and during that time, the job relocated us to a new state.
It was really a nice touch to have the same phone number go with us.
I can't speak to this particular model, because I have the older one, but the service is outstanding. I have no complaints with it at all.
I do think that it will save you a great deal of money if you still have regular home phone service.
