Thanks for the warning. I'll look into traditional VOiP services.
I just signed up with Voip.ms the other day on a Obi110 that I have and so far, so good.

Signed my grandma up for VoIP.ms and cancelled her Xfinity phone line.

$3 a month of so - mainly due to e911 fees.

Would anybody know if this device would work on a fax machine. Without having a physical phone line?
With Google I have zero issues. Faxing works great. I have the 202 model though I'm not sure it matters.

I've been using Google Voice paired with ObiHai since about day 2 of their existence. Worked great for a long while. After some time they needed to make money so they pushed out firmware updates that disabled your original device. Essentially planned obsolescence. I found several ways around that and was using Obi110 until about late last year. I set up my parents and my other older relatives with Google Voice service and all have been very happy. I think the best part of this is that you can essentially make calls to just about any country for dirt cheap. I have set my folks up so they can call from their cell phones and calls routed through Google voice. That same call on their cell phone would cost a ton of cash but being rooted through GV it's at the rate of landline call. Totally worth it for old folk and especially those that have relatives overseas.

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.
Do you HAVE to have 911? I just want a number to do account verifications and to provide spammers. Phone would be set to silent.

Can you still use a obi100? I have one collecting dust in a box that I never re-setup after I moved. Or do I need to just buy new?

Hey so I found a YouTube tutorial about how to set up the device with Google Voice.
So if I have this box, I should be able to make calls just like calling form my computer right? Meaning no monthly cost besides the Google Voice long distance call charge?

I recently switched my FiOS voice line over to Google voice using one of these. Had to port to a temporary mobile carrier first but it worked. Google voice has the caller announcement feature where the caller has to record their name before their message before I will accept. I receive alot less spam calls since going to Google voice.

Just picked one up. Been thinking of porting over my phone # from FIOS to GV and using one of these since the landline I have now is super static-y.

I want to try to connect this unit to an existing GV # to test first though. I should be able to re-assign another GV # once I finish testing right?
Just ported FiOS to cell then to gv and using with obi 200. Great so far. I also tested with another gv number first.

The OBI phones work well, but cost considerably more...

No, 911 is not required. That just publishes your number to the 911 database so if you were to call 911 from your GV number it would show your address.

Been using this with Callcentric for 911 service ($2.95 per month). No issues for the past 3 years.
