Free Obi device <---> Obi device calling

Using the OBi to Call Other OBi Endpoints for Free Using the OBiTALK Network:
The OBi comes out of the box ready to make FREE calls to other OBi endpoints using the OBiTALK network. On the bottom of your unit, you will see a 9-digit OBi Number. This is your OBi Number. Give this number to your friends, family and colleagues so they can call you from their OBi device or using an OBi software application for PCs and mobile phones. To use the OBiTALK network, all you have to do is install your OBi, pick up the phone and then call your friends by dialing 9 and their nine-digit OBi Number.
Other noteable features in Obi202 vs the Obi200

Only on the OBi202: Press # for Phone Port Collaboration
Did you know that you can have a mini phone system with the OBi202? While the Phone Port 1 and Phone Port 2 can function independently so you and another person can be on two different calls at the same time, the two phone ports to work together. …Just Press #

Call the Other Phone – You can press # to call from one phone to the other phone.
Call Transfer – While on a call, press the hook or Flash button and then press # to ring the other phone. All three of you can talk together or just hang-up to transfer the call to the other phone.
Join-in on the Other Phone’s Call – If the phone on phone port 1 is on a call, from the phone on phone port 2 press # to join-in on the call.
Incoming Call Pick-Up – If the phone connected to phone port 1 is ringing, pick-up the phone connected to phone port 2 and press # , then say “Hello?”
________

For Free incoming call
http://www.callcentric.com/ <--- many SDers and people in other Voip forum recommend this. Callcentric currently offer EE[/COLOR] NY phone number with free unlimited incoming calls. No monthly fee if you pick country other than US/Canada, otherwise $1.50/month 911 fee (you do get E911 support) only if you pick US/Canada.

For free incoming calls with caller ID name do the following:
Sign up for a free Callcentric DID & then configure 1 of the slots in your OBI to this Callcentric DID. Then have your GV number forward to your Callcentric DID.
For cheap pay per min call
http://www.localphone.com (cheapest pay-per-minute is by localphone.com at 0.5 cent/minute to US numbers) note that some US numbers are .007 (vs. .005) but those #s are inc. at no extra charge in monthly subsciption plans.

More Voip options below

Some useful information about OBi
  • Even though Google Voice don't have E911 support, you can signup for E911 yourself
    Link to How to set-up 911 calling on an OBi device
    http://blog.obihai.com/2011/11/ca...vices.html
    • Cheapest E911 provider is Anveo (at $0.8/month) http://www.anveo.com/service.asp (FREE plan and add E911)
    • 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.
    • if you do not want to 'dedicate' a SIP slot for E911, you can use http://www.gv911.com/ - costs $12/year
    • www.smart911.com [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.
  • before you start porting your number to GV, check this first http://www.obihai.com/porttutorial.html
  • configuring 'single' stage dialing here - http://www.obitalk.com/forum/inde...pic=1103.0
  • Obi device offer a lot of powerful features like Auto Attendant (which you can setup your own Interactive response system), Call bridging, etc. AutoAttendant (AA)/Interactive Voice Response (IVR) make the Obi a bit more dynamic for eg. callback for cheap/free call while away from home, etc. And you can record your own AA message.
    Do google search and look at the Obi Admin Guide for more info.
    http://obihai.com/docs/OBiDeviceAdminGuide.pdf
    http://www.obitalk.com/forum/inde...topic=66.0
    http://www.obitalk.com/forum/inde...pic=4822.0
    https://www.obitalk.com/forum/ind...pic=2114.0
  • 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.

  • Some Voip that provide free incoming call. May want to double check and see if this information is out of date or not.
    • For free incoming call, you can also use IpKall. It works with Callcentric to provide free local number in Washington State and free incoming call.
      http://www.ipkall.com/ Be aware your number may get deleted with no obvious reason or notice from ipkall, you don't want your calls to be forwarded to someone else's phone system.
    • Another service offer free incoming phone number
      http://www.callcentric.com/dids/f...one_number
    • sipgate.com is dead as of 10/31/13
  • Here are some of the Voip that offer very low price International Calls
    • Onesuite and localphone offer a lot of local access number so can use it without Voip device. Those two also offer international local access number which you can use outside US.
      http://www.onesuite.com One suite charges $0.025 PER Minute for local calls (US<->US)
      - offer low price long distance (eg. 2.4 cents Per minute to india -- not really cheap when you consider GV offers india for 2 cent flat)
      - Global Call Forwarding
    • http://www.localphone.com (cheapest pay-per-minute is by localphone.com at 0.5 cent/minute to US numbers)[SIZE="1"]
      We'd really like you to give our services a try so here's 25% extra credit to use when you top up your balance. That makes our call rates even cheaper than before.

*************

"Officially supported" along w/a cute little logo on the box, not sure that = "permanent".

In addition Google could always just choose to drop voice or to charge for it. Unlikely I think, but you never know with them. Since the Obi box is not locked to any particular service at least it wouldn't be a brick, even if you would have to use a paid service. I use LocalPhone for overseas calling, best rates for where I usually call and .005/min. USA calling as a backup in case GV goes down.

STARTS FRIDAY MAY 22 til the 24th So not yet active. Last time it was at this price it was a front page deal.

Got the following in an email today:

Quote :
Big Sale Starts May 22nd – Mark Your Calendars Now!

Make Your Month A-May-Zing – Get the OBi202 for Only $49.99
Save $20 on the OBi202!
Our Best Sale Yet!
From May 22 to May 24, click Here to go to the Newegg product page to get the OBi202 for $49.99 with free shipping.
. . .

I received a notice since I now own 3 Obiahi devices. Bought these for my home and office. $50 is pretty solid price for this particular ATA. You're buying it more for the hosted software service then the ATA itself. That said my Grandstream HT701 are collecting dust now.

If you're a Google Voice User then this is a hot Grab. $15/yr for e911 w/ call alert.
