Just a heads up. Got this message from Obihai. Don't know the sale price yet. Will update this post when price is available.
===============================

Save on the OBi202 (Sep 20) and the OBi200 (Sep 27) on Amazon
We will be having a sale on the OBi202 on Sep 20 and the OBi200 on Sep 27. If you have been thinking about getting a new OBi200 or OBi202 device, remember to mark this on your calendar. For those who are using the OBi100 or OBi110 (both have reached its End of Life) and wish to upgrade your device, this is also a great time to get the OBi200 or OBi202 as your replacement device.

=====================

UPDATE: Looks like the price is still the same on Amazon on OBI202 and I have not received any follow-up emails from Obihai yet.... will keep you posted.

=====================

UPDATE: So far more emails from Obihai and no price difference on Amazon.... Looks like this "deal" is over before it even started....Sorry everyone for a confusion.

This is a rather pointless post because nobody knows any details besides the dates.

It's probably not going to be crappy, and I thought about posting this myself, but...

A) There are no price details. This is not your fault, Obihai was purposely vague. If I had to guess, the Obihai OBI202 will be $49.99 and the OBI200 will be $39.99 or $34.99, but that's just speculating.
B) The two Obihai deals are 7 days apart.

Better be on your A-game if you are going to update before FP mods. laugh out loud

You do not need to pay anything to continue Google Voice support. I have not paid anything extra in the past 3 years and my OBI 202 still runs well with GV.

I remember at one point I saw a warning when I went to the admin console of the device and also thought I had to start paying monthly, but then I realize that message was to lure you in to pay for some optional service. The message was worded to give you the impression that you needed to pay to continue. Don't be fooled.

End of life doesn't mean it just stops working. All it means is they will not provide technical support or updates for it anymore.
