Yes, you can. I have the one with 2 phone lines. One google voice for the home phone that I rarely use and another for my 4 in 1 printer fax that I use very often.

Yes, you can. It just like a regular phone line.

Not for the device itself. You pay for the services that it connects to. The most popular is Google Voice for which there are no monthly charges.

GV does not offer 911, thus you could pay for a separate service like punchalert which is $25/year.

Anveo and Callcentric offer 911 for additional fee to monthly service charge.

No, just connect it to google voice. Google voice offers free phone numbers. If you want emergency services there is a yearly fee. I think its like 10 or 20 dollars.

Polycom sells a proprietary usb dongle for wifi. It used to be about $20. So yes.

Things look to be changing at Google Voice - I got this email this morning - won't affect these units but a big indicator that Google is changing things....

Picked one up as a spare. I use Voip.ms (they are not paying me to say this) and its great. I moved from Toronto to New York a few years ago and I transfered my canadian cell phone to this device and now I can receive calls without paying an arm and a leg.

Obitalk [obitalk.com] has a guide on their site, but cordcuttingreport.com [cordcuttingreport.com] claims it's outdated and to use a Ting sim card instead.

Ting cards are generally available in stores, and they include service credit to offset the activation cost and month of service.

This was alluded to back in August 2019, because <AHEM> spammers.

Also in March of this year they said mobile carriers themselves are now actively blocking SMS forwarding from GV numbers thus it's kinda out of Googles hands.
