Where from? Amazon marketplace is $125+
Google it. I just found one on amazon for $50 in like a minute. Used you can get one for less off ebay and others. Frankly the obi 202 may be the better value for around $60.

Can you plug this in on a RJ45 Network drop with an assigned IP, and then create a number for it for people to call in? What else would it need?

Who uses these these days? I had an Obihai device maybe ten years ago but I moved to cellular entirely and haven't gone back since.
The reason I use the 200 is because I am entirely cellular. No internet service available here. When I get home from work my cell phone hotspots to a switched 5GHz client that serves the whole house and my obi which then provides the phone service to the entire house.

I use my Obi 200 with a WiFi connector to handle faxing, and it is shockingly excellent for that. (Voice quality above and beyond OOMA who decided to suddenly and fraudulently bork my "lifetime" account). Total outlay for the current setup was about $65.
What happened? I still have my lifetime Ooma )and upgraded to Telo. I don't use it much, but it is good to have a landline for calling customer service and being on hold Smilie

I always wish obihai could support GV's SMS function, even if it could only receive. It'd be cool to be able to view the SMS messages thru the display or caller ID window

Have an existing Obi Google Voice adapter (connected to cordless phone system in the house). Purchased this as I'm working from home now almost full time and wanted a full-duplex speakerphone.

Looks like this model may be discontinued (can anyone confirm)? Looks like the 2182 model is the only one showing up on the Poly website.

I'm living as an expat overseas in Asia and have both an OBi200 and the original Ooma Core (no fees!) running as my US phone lines. I had to upgrade the Obi a couple years back when they cut support for the older one I was using since 2011. The Ooma has been going strong for 12 years straight so I definitely made back my cost on that one! I rely on both devices and they've delivered exceptionally well over the years.

This allows you to use one network drop for your phone and PC and maintain gigabit to the PC. The phone has two ports - "SW" (upstream data switch) and "PC".

Yes but you would have to subscribe to some voip service such as GV and obtain a dedicated phone number. You cannot simply plug it into a router or switch by itself.

I use a grandstream so i can load google apps on there like nest and teams. when the door bell rings I can see who it is.. but the issue with that one is it has very low memory so you cannot load too many google apps. can this thing run nest or ring central?

:
I am little confused because Ooma charges govt taxes and fees. If Ooma and Obi are similar, why does Ooma charge those fees?
Basically with Ooma, they are categorized as a communications service and therefore are required to pay the regulatory fees and gov taxes, which they pass onto the consumers.

With obihai, you're basically DIYing your own VoIP. Obihai does not provide a communications service in itself. They just sell a device that you can use to configure someone else's VoIP service on. It doesn't have to be Google Voice but Google voice is free and the obihai device makes it so easy to configure to work.

You don't pay any fees to have a Google voice account. Google argued that they should be exempt because Google Voice wasn't created to provide it's users a full blown communications service. It was initially used mainly as a forwarding/call screening tool.

Waiting for an Obi202.. I have an obi 200 and I love it
Agreed. Love my obi200. Bought on so many years ago for $30 and I've had a free landline ever since. Rock solid performance, just set it up once and it's worked flawlessly
