1. First & Last Name
2. Branch of Military
3. (dot)mil Email Address
- For example: firstname.lastname@example.org
- This is the email address we will use to confirm/track the shipment.
4. APO or FPO Address
- This is the mailing address where we will send the shipment.

There is a limit of one (1) OBi110 per person or family. Please allow 4-8 weeks for processing.
Related offer from Google Inc: In 2011, Google provided members of the military free calling, regardless of the country where the call originates. 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). Click here to see this Gmail blog post for more information. Please note, we have not been able to confirm if this offer remains available into 2012. If it does not, then calls originated outside the USA or Canada to USA and Canada numbers will cost 1 cent per minute.*
