Also, if you want to keep it simple and won't ever have more than one line, the Grandstream HT801 @ $46 will do the job

Thanks for posting. Does this also allow smartphones to dial out via landline (like a wifi bridge)?

No. This device allows for analog phones to connect to VOIP networks.

If you want to use your smartphone to dial out using a VOIP network, you should use an app like Zoiper, Bria, Acrobits etc. You need to have a VOIP/SIP provider set up, then just plug in the credentials into these apps.

Not related to this deal, but I recently bought a grandstream ATA after my Obihai Obi200 crapped on me.

Mine looks similar to this one but is the single port version. I use it with freephoneline for our home phone, and I've gotta say it's been rock solid and trouble free since day 1. Configuration was also A LOT simpler than the Obi200. Some will say that the Obi200 is more "capable" or have more features. But truth be told I never used any of them. I found that the obi200 also need to be power cycled every few months too.

Anyways, long story short, grandstream makes some solid products.

Got the Grandstream HT801 on Kijiji for $20 and it works great. If you only need 1 line, check Kijiji rather than new.

I use mine with Freephoneline as well and no issues.

This is the wholesale price through my Grandstream rep, so buy - buy - buy.
BTW, lots of great help on forums.grandstream.com
Not your standard VoIP. Different and novel options & advice for my RFD friends.

I don't want to rain on your parade but the regular price is $65... not much to write home about.

It's also $56 at PC Canada

Margins are slim on these low cost units. My point was you're not going to find new for cheaper.

Grandstream does make solid VoIP ATA devices. That is not a secret :) They are basic units, but they are solid.

But the obi200 (which I still have - actually I'm using an obi202, but I do have a spare obi200) does have many advanced features (which I don't use many) and it's 4 profiles and Google Voice native support are great. At one point I did have 4 services on the obi202 (freephoneline, callcentric, voip.ms and google voice). Don't know how many services/profiles you have have on current grandstream units however.

You say you had to power cycle the obi every few months ? I have honestly never needed to power cycle it (maybe specific to a version of firmware). It is on my UPS, along with my router and switches and it just keeps working. I have both ports setup with the same profile and it is great. Wife can be on the line on one phone, and I can pick up the other phone and make a second call. And if someone else calls while she is on the line, she get's the call waiting tone ans can see who is calling, but I can just answer the second line, and take the call also, without interrupting her call. I'm sure many of these feature can be setup on some of Grandstream units also. But Native GoogleVoice on the obi for me has been great (which is why I kept the obi200 as a spare, even after getting am obi202 ages ago). I use it to call family in the US regularly and it is great.

I didn't claim that it is. But it's a lot less than Amazon. Indeed CCC says it's only been that low once, so probably either a price error or from a third-party seller with a hefty shipping fee.

BTW I was about to buy this model from TekSavvy as part of a TekTalk install. They want $50 plus $10 shipping, then $10+ per month for service. Instead I'm getting a voip.ms account and the HT812 from BB.

I went through multiple voip adapters over the years, but I stopped using them these days since you can easily use an app on your phone to make voip calls. For the price, wouldn't it be a lot cheaper to buy groundwire. etc. instead?

Yup. An extra $9 for shipping or a drive to Guelph.

Is using an app on cellular phones as good as using the regular cellular voice service?
Dropped calls?
