This review is from: Obihai OBi202 VoIP Phone Adapter with Router – Google Voice, SIP & T.38 Fax Support
Pros: Easy to sign up.
Cons: Google Voice will no longer work with Google Voice after 5/15/2014.
Other Thoughts: I bought the device to be used with Google voice. I recieved the device today and was excited about it. After signning it up on Obitalk I noticed on it's website it says Google Voice will no longer work with Google Voice after 5/15/2014.
I called Newegg right away to return the product but she said there will be a 15% restocking fee. I wish she would waived the fee but nope...
"Recently Google announced the end of support for XMPP based calling with Google Voice. This will happen on May 15, 2014 – that’s over 6 months from today. Since your OBi device uses XMPP to communicate with Google servers, the end of support will directly impact how your OBi device can be used with your Gmail account and its associated Google Voice phone number. Unfortunately, you will no longer be able to use the Google Voice communication service to make calls using the phone connected to your OBi device. Also, the ability to receive calls to your Google Voice number, directly from Google’s service, will not be possible. "
