[Amazon.ca] Obihai OBi200 1-Port VoIP Adapter with Google Voice and Fax Support ($79.76)

Obi 200 is back on sale. The price hasn't been this low in awhile.

This is the only brand of ATA that supports Google Voice.

Thinking of picking this up as a backup if and when my 10 year old Linksys ATA dies.

Deciding between THIS and the Grandstream HT-801. As I understand this has way more features and a more user friendly GUI than the Grandstream.

This thing is rarely on sale anymore so if you need it now, this is a good time to pick one up.

Isn't the loophole closed?
I already have a Google Voice line from years ago so I'm not sure if you can register for a new one now.

For what it’s worth I picked up a used Grandstream HT-801 on Kijiji for $25, it works great with FreePhoneLine VoIP. Lots of way to save money for someone looking for a landline type solution.

Nice, it's hard to find a HT-801 for sale in my area let alone at that price. Thumbs Up Sign

With a friend or relative in the US who hasn't yet confirmed their US phone number with Google Voice.

Guys, how does this compare to the Cisco PAP2 modem? I've been using that with my freephobeline.ca for 10 years. Not sure what benefit I'll get with this one?

I have an OBI and although I don't have an Ooma, I believe they offer their own proprietary premier VOIP service with their ATA and the OBI can be used with any 3rd-party provider like voip.ms, Anveo, freephoneline, etc.

from Comparing Residential Home Phone Service: Ooma Telo vs. Obihai with Google Voice
Ooma also has a monthly fee associated with it (albeit a small one of a few dollars I think) whereas the obihai with freephoneline does not. I picked up an obihai when COVID started as I was in need of a landline for work calls and cell phone reception in a high rise condo can be pretty crappy. Been using it ever since and it's been great!

Yes i tried to get it from ebay few days ago but when you login it will ask you to confirm your account with US number. Thats where it will forward your calls from google voice.

There's really no comparison. Because of the call routing features, number of providers it can support, auto-attendant, etc., no other residential ATA brand offers more features or is better suited for FPL.
