    Yeah, obi's are getting into high demand with the latest round of gv changes. Effectively breaking gv trunks on a* pbx's. Depending on usage, probably cheaper to go with a real itsp than deal with gv's idiocy.

    Thanks. I did review bobdevnul's post. It shows results for 2000, but I did not find any recent update there.

    It shows 49.99 in Amazon

    $49.99 for an Obi200 is the lowest going rate right now, as far as I know.

    For regular consumers, there is no easy or reliable alternative to an Obihai device for using a GV # as a home phone, as far as I know.

    Since Obihai was purchased by Polycom, the semi-regular $29.99 or $34.99 sale prices seem to be no more.

    I'm definitely ALWAYS looking for a good deal and/or to pay as little as possible for everything I buy. But in the big picture, $49.99 vs $29.99 is only $20. If you're using it to replace a home phone line, which usually costs around $30/mo minimum, instead of a 1-month payback, it becomes a 1-2/3 month payback, which isn't much of a difference.

    So, really, the $20 price increase over the lowest historical sale price is inconsequential, if using it for it's intended purpose.
