This functionality can be applied to the OBi device such that a regular telephone can be used instead of a computer (using the Gmail Call Phone feature).

If it does not, then calls originated outside the USA or Canada to USA and Canada numbers will cost 1 cent per minute.*

The OBi202 2-port VoIP phone adapter with router supports up to 4 VoIP services, including Google Voice™ with network and application extensibility via integrated USB port.
Obihai, the customer-top-rated manufacturer of VoIP phone adapters for SIP and Google Voice™, has just released the OBi202 two-port VoIP telephone adapter with integrated router and USB port. The OBi202 is for sale now at www.Amazon.com and available to service providers for mass-deployment. With the previously announced End-of-Sale for the Cisco-Linksys SPA2102 and PAP2T, the OBi202 is well-equipped to replace these highly-regarded ATAs for both value added reseller (VAR) and service provider deployments.
“We are extremely excited to bring the OBi202 to market and support all the customers using the device,” said Jan Fandrianto, President and CEO of Obihai Technology, and inventor of the first VoIP phone adapter. “Home and small businesses users of the OBi202 will be impressed with its innovative features, attractive design, excellent voice quality and reliability,” Fandrianto said.
Pricing & AvailabilityThe OBi202 is priced at $99.99 and is available today at Amazon, for a promotional price of $74.99 with free shipping. Over the next few months, more stores and on-line merchants are expected to carry the OBi202. Resellers and service providers should contact Obihai directly at: email@example.com for information on sourcing and deployment of the OBi202.
The user can dial a “#” key to call from one phone port to the other. Depending on the current state of the called phone, one of the following can happen:
- If the called phone is idle, it will ring normally with a Caller-ID indicating the call is coming from the phone connected to the other phone port of the same OBi202.
- If the called phone is already on a call, the calling phone can automatically join the call.
- If the called phone is on-hook with a call holding, the calling phone can pick up / resume the call.
- If the called phone is ringing, the calling phone will pick-up and answer the incoming call.
Complimentary to ZT, Obihai have a specialized web-portal for VoIP service providers. Via the portal, service provider support engineers can access each device individually to troubleshoot and configure specific parameter settings as well as set-up and perform loop-back calls and other tests without requiring the end user subscriber’s assistance or intervention.
