Editor's Notes & Price Research

Written by

  • The OBi200 allows you to make and receive phone calls using your high-speed internet, your regular home phone and a "VoIP" Internet phone service provider like Google Voice. This enables you to call free or at a fraction of the cost a traditional telco would charge. Refer to the product page and forum thread for additional details and discussion.
  • This also matches the previous Frontpage deal from May.
  • Our research indicates that at the time of this post, the Polycom OBi200 (Formerly OBIHAI OBi200) VoIP Telephone Adapter with Google Voice & SIP is $10 lower (20% savings) than the next best available price from a reputable merchant with prices starting from $49.99. -Corwin

Huh? While you need a Google Voice number to use this with GV, it does not require the app. What point are you trying to make pointing to the app?

I was just thinking about these the other day and was thinking it's been a long time since I've heard anything about them. So you buy this and a regular phone and can make and receive calls completely free using Google Voice. Is that correct?

It seems Google has problems now with free service on VOIP!

Later!

You do have to pay for 911 service which is $15/year.

Polycom scares me, I worry they will drop support for the product and/or google voice. The more recent OBI models say service from a Polycom partner. I've used it for a few years now and really don't want to loose it. But I'd guess if we did loose it we would get rid of the home phone and route that number to the cell phones.

Apparently you want to check to make sure the firmware is up to date, and update it if it is not.

Been using for 2+ yrs. Excellent. Call quality can sometimes be flakey. No whining for that. Free service anyways

How come Newegg is always the one doing the exclusive Obi and such device deals?
I mean if another Obi type device comes around, it will certainly be on SD front page from Newegg!

Would anybody know if this device would work on a fax machine. Without having a physical phone line?

I have one that I picked up 6 months ago to use with Google Voice. It works fine with occasional dropouts. Voice quality is good.

It's nice to have a free service to use my DECT 6 phone and fax over a 1 Gbps up/down fiber connection. Definitely overkill.

If you're new to setting up VOIP, take advantage of the free initial phone support. This unit has a ton of setup options that can get confusing.

The Polycom website only shows OBI300 (1 Line) and OBI302 (2 Lines). I guess that they just change the "2" to "3". Either model does support Fax.
