If you don't use your phone much, I would highly recommend voip.ms with your obi device. It's usage based, and call quality is excellent.

For any one who's Google Voice # is ending today and planning to keep the GV # going like me. You might want to check this out, it took me some days/nights of surfing and digging around to finally to go with PhonePower. You must logged into your ObiTalk portal in order to view the plans: https://www.obitalk.com/obinet/pg/servi ... phonepower

It seems OBiTalk/OBiHai recommends PhonePower and ANVEO at the moment. I just subscribed to PhonePower Unlimited for $59.99 and I will be using my Google Voice # which will be spoofed by PhonePower.

Here are the packaging promo details provided by PhonePower and ANVEO:

Yea, it still working for me temporarily. I have PhonePower set up right now as back up for SP3. Talkatone app has failed to work with Google Voice already.
How do you like PhonePower so far? They are on my short list of providers to consider.

No, you don't get an incoming number with Hangouts. For that you'll need a Google Voice account, and it will be a US number, not local.

(after getting a Google Voice account, then Hangouts can accept incoming calls from your Google Voice US number)

So do I need to do anything via the OBiTALK service (as suggested in the post)? My setup is working fine.
There is no need to if it still works for you. I haven't changed anything on mine.
