      i purchased my obi110 earlier this year for $43 from an amazon lightening deal.

      have had my ooma hub (grandfathered free) for 2 years and is plugged into the FXO port of my obi110.

      the obi/110 allows for 2 SIPs, as the obi202 allows for 4 SIPs.

      google voice (SIP) does not have 911 service, but the obi can be programmed to dial a local number when 911 is called. alternately, if a landline is plugged into the obi110 911 calls will be routed over the landline.

      by default calls can be set to go out over a SIP (GV) or you can select which SIP or landline (obi110) with a ***# code prefix.

      landline numbers cannot be directly ported to google voice (SIP) so they have to be first ported to a cell, like a prepaid t-mobile cell and then to google voice. the cost to port a number into google voice is $20 so add another $20 for the first port to a prepaid cell for a total of about $40 to port. note that google voice does not have a customer service dept and people have had trouble porting their number out of google voice. (upfront cost to port a number to ooma is $40 or included with a 1 yr premium service at a cost of $99.)

      obi units can communicate over the internet between each other without a SIP (or landline).

      obi allows for a 'circle of friends' or 'trusted callers' by caller id to remotely access SIPs or landline (obi110).

      google voice has been free for the last several years and currently says it is free until the end of this year, but most likely will continue to be free.

      I have mine set up to send all data to a syslog server. I gr4ab the relevant data and then send myself an IM when I get calls.

      Obi110 can also be used a call blocker such that your phone will not ring when calling numbers match a certain pattern. I have a process that reads the syslog entries and adds numbers to the block list automatically. I block 800 numbers, number with no caller ID info and numbers with certain words like "market", "collection" and "parole office" in the caller ID string. They all go straight to voice mail.

      also, in the DigitMap settings page for Service Providers (SIP) on ITSP Profile A (Google Voice) you can add S0 to the end of each individual dial string (| ... |) after the x's.

      |[2-9]xS0| (note: should be 6 x's, ben's coding is altering) allows for local calls w/o having to dial the local area code.

      the S0 waits 0 seconds before dialing each number and pushes it to the service provider (SIP) immediately.

      |1900x!|
      (note: should be 7 x's, ben's coding is altering) blocks pay per call numbers.

      Wow! Really sophisticated comments. Too complicated for my weak brain. I just bought an ATA for $3 at my local junk store a few years ago, connected it to my home wiring, got a Call Centric account (E911), ported my POTS # and ditched Verizon. Have been a happy camper ever since.
