Which OBi Should I Get?

Obihai has four telephone adapters, currently - The OBi100, OBi110, OBi200 and OBi202. See the chart below for an overview of the product features. In essence, these products work with your phone in the same manner except for one key feature. The OBi110 has a physical port for an analog line service. This port, labeled LINE on the OBi110, can be thought of as a gateway to a traditional phone service. The service can be from a land line carrier. It can also be from a VoIP service, when the phone port of the service provider's device is plugged into the LINE port of the OBi110.

***Update: 15 Sep 14***
After some issues with Google's support for Google Voice/OBI integration...OBI now apparently has GOOGLE VOICE support once again! I moved over to another SIP provider (which was still dirt-cheap) during the past few months when GV wasn't "officially" supported...but I will look at going back to GV now that it's apparently supported again. 3+ years later...and my OBI100 is still going strong.
*Original reviews below*

Approximately 2 months ago, I finally made the jump to buy both my wife and I smart phones. The price for the devices themselves has never really been an issue, but I could never justify such pricey monthly subscriptions. $80+/month? Each?? No way!! When I heard that Virgin Mobile had the LG Optimus with unlimited data/text available for just $25/month, the barrier had been broken. I could have one for myself and another for my wife, and we would actually be cutting our monthly cost. Buttt...300 minutes only? Ouch. Not really an issue for me, as I'm not a big talker...but the wife can go through 300 minutes in a week, never mind a month. What to do?

Enter the Obi100.

Using Google Voice and the Obi100, we're able to use a single number that rings our home phone and her cellphone. When she's home, she picks up the home phone. Using the home phone doesn't use any of her plan's minutes. When she out of the house, she uses the cellphone. As a stay at home mom, she's typically at home to use the obi-connected phone...so she has not come anywhere close to her 300 minutes (so far). So...that is why this was a great investment for us.

Setting the Obi up can be a bit of a headscratcher. The documentation included is a bit on the nebulous side.

UPDATE: As of 9/11/2014 Google voice is back on the Obi. I know a lot of us were down because of the Google Voice dropping Obi support situation, but as of today I have received an email that says Google voice Obi compatibility is active again. This is for old and new Obi devices. I made a test call to my cellphone and it went through. I literally just plugged it back in and everything worked properly. I never removed my Google Voice info from the Obihai website, so I did not have to go and reenter anything. Glad to have my *free* back up home phone again.

By installing the obi 100 and the Vtech Dect 6.0 I officially do not need phone service. This thing gives you the exact same service that most cable companies are selling in a bundle with cable and internet. Problem with the cable company is that after the promotion runs out each service is about 60 dollars a piece. The price jumps from 99.00 introductory 12 month rate to a whopping full circle at 180 bucks a month. I asked and asked buy my cable company refused to put me back on promotion. So, I ended up doing some research on how I could get a low cost preferably free phone service that did not require having a computer on always like Majic Jack.

I ended up narrowing my search down to 2 choices 1 I could go with Ooma, or 2 there was the Obi. Both of these phone solutions use Voip which is just an acronym for voice over the internet literally. Ooma has a high installation cost, but if you are not very tech savvy and familiar with the internet this is probably the best choice for you. Installation of Ooma is very easy as I understand it. Its practically plug in and start calling. However the drawback as I mentioned is the 2-300.

(Edited April 28, 2011)

The OBi100 is a FANTASTIC device. FIVE STARS FOR THE HARDWARE DEVICE ITSELF. The OBi100 is really small. And it's easy to hook up. There really isn't too much to say about the hardware itself except to say it's too easy to hook up. The OBi100 is designed to work with the various VoIP services that are out there. And, in particular, the OBi100 is "suppose" to work with Google Voice. Many people should have no problem getting the OBi100 to work with Google Voice (GV). Set up your GV account, log into Google Chat in GMAIL, and make at least one outgoing call from GMAIL. Then do the setup for the OBi100. The online OBiTalk setup for the OBi100 is relatively easy to follow. And then it should all work for both incoming GV calls and outgoing GV calls. The typical incoming GV call process could be illustrated as follows:

Incoming Call
Google Voice Number

But for some people, like myself, there could be a problem -- in particular, getting the phone connected to the OBi100 to ring on each and every incoming Google Voice call. Note that OUTGOING calls via Google Voice using the OBi100-connected phone were not a problem. The problem was getting the OBi100-connected phone to ring on each and every *INCOMING* Google Voice call. In other words, some incoming GV calls would ring but most other incoming GV calls would not ring. And this was with numerous repeated calls from the same phones calling into the GV number. It's was like: ring, not ring. If you don't encounter this problem, then consider yourself to be lucky and blessed.

I originally wanted to have my Google Voice to forward calls to my iPhone and also to the phone connected to my OBi100.
