If you’re on the lookout for a service that can make your home phone compatible with your current Google Voice number, for free* in-bound and out-bound calls, have a look at Obihai. The company has a VoIP phone adapter known as the OBi110 [Amazon] that works with the OBiTALK Network to handle your calls. Both the adapter and service also — or in tandem — work with any other SIP provider, so users have that option as well. But the best part may be that their are no monthly subscription fees, like with the gHome service we recently covered, and users can call other OBiTALK Network users for FREE worldwide using their OBi 9-digit number. Obihai even has PC and mobile apps available that folks can use to make and receive calls.

Service features:

The OBi110 supports the following customer calling features (more are being added all the time!): OBiTALK Web Portal, OBiTALK Circles of Trust, OBiON iPhone & iPod Touch and Android Smart Phone Apps, OBiAPP for PC SoftPhone App, No Per Month Fees, Works with Your Existing Services, Bridging Your Services for Optimum Savings & Convenience, Call Forwarding (ALL, Busy, No Answer), Call Waiting, Caller ID – Name & Number, Call Waiting Caller ID, Call Transfer, 3-Way Calling, Caller ID Block, Automatic Call Back, Call Return, Anonymous Call Block, Do Not Disturb, Conference Calling, Anonymous Calling, Message Waiting Indication – Visual and Tone Based, Speed Dialing of 99 OBi Endpoints or Numbers

* Two things you should know: 1) Google Voice unlimited free calling is up to Google’s discretion; 2) Obi110′s price varies widely. MSRP is $69.99, but people on Amazon have said they’ve purchased it for as little as $49 and as much as $99. Not exactly sure why that is.

UPDATE: It turns out you can use either the Obi110 or the Obi100 with Google Voice. The difference between the two models is that the Obi110 includes a Line Port for use with a landline connection. Basically, the Obi110 supports VoIP and landline service. The Obi100 is VoIP only.

    The OBi110 is a great product.

    I don’t know what I think about the product yet, because it just arrived and I haven’t tested it yet, but the fact that it only has a 90 day warranty does not inspire confidence.
