If you can meet the $250 monthly minimum, VoIP Innovations is one of the very best. Incredible backend, amazing support all the way around.

Otherwise, Flowroute is awesome, cheap, no minimum.

Also, VoicePulse is great (I recommend the FIVE SIP Trunking service).

My monthly expense averages about $2.50.

Ordered this in 2018 for $49.99. Guess it has not gone up that much. The 200 was $29.99 in 2015 when I replaced my OBI 110's.

Edit: Just checked to see how much I paid for the OBI110's back in 2011 and was $49.99....but they have long since paid for themselves...about $10 a year...one of the better phone deals. Just cancelled my spectrum internet, just tired of their game playing with the billing. Plus the ads they send me in spanish are also an insult.

As an FYI, i bought a lesser model posted here last week and have been unable to add it to my obitalk account. Cus svc states the website has issues and they're working on it then directed me to a site that says their servers are fine. Not sure what all this means but as of right now I have a paperweight. Unless someone here has better info

Great post, THANK YOU! I've spent countless hours trying to get mine added unsuccessfully as well. I found a suggestion that you keep trying to enter that **(5 digit) code several times in the same registration session during the 120 second search period and after the 2nd or 3rd time, it apparently successfully sends the code to link to your account. That worked for me. Good luck!

At least I'm not alone

Fax with a physical fax machine? Yes, I have my all in one printer hooked into it and it successfully sends faxes using a Google Voice number/account.

I've had similar issues adding both the 200 and 202 models in the past. Usually works after 4 or 5 attempts, waiting at least a few minutes between tries. Also may help if you try different browsers or a pc restart. Not sure if it's a timeout issue on their end, cookies, etc.

Note - There are guides to set this up entirety cloud free with some VoIP providers such as google voice... much easier with the cloud based setup assistance however.

Well, it looks like I may have misspoken... Manual GV setup (using official obi/poly firmware) may no longer be an option. At least according to some random google results and the obitalk forums.

The links to guides for manual GV setup I kept from my original Obi110 GV setup and first obi200 are dead.

It's not 100% clear, but this may have to do with changes Google made in 2018 to XMPP that Obi/Poly no longer wanted to support via manual config but will via ObiTalk.

Here's a link that talks about 3rd party firmware that allows manual GV config on the 2xx and 3xx series... https://toao.net/500-mangos-guide...an-obi-ata The guy at www.obifirmware.com [obifirmware.com] has been around a while and came out with f/w for the 110 once Obi/Poly dropped support. But I can't speak for the 3rd party f/w, etc and wouldn't go this route at this point unless you had no other option.

Also, if you happen to stumble onto the obitalk forums looking for guidance, be vary leery of any advice from "SteveInWA". He doesn't work for Obi, does NOT have technical depth, and is pretty much a shill for Poly.
