Getting rid of your home phone bill. Obihai.

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, April 18, 2013

Getting rid of your home phone bill.  The latest from Obihai.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.  It’s kind of an odd sounding name, but a company called Obihai is one you may want to remember if your goal is to save money on your home phone bill.  It makes devices starting at under forty dollars that can do the trick.  Marketing VP Sherman Scholten….

“We’ve got the Obi 100.  It’s a very basic product that connects to your broadband router and your telephone.  It allows you to make phone calls using your Google Voice number, using what’s called a SIP account voice over IP number.”

There are other models that add things like a second phone port, faxing capability and add-ons to make the devices WiFi ready so they don’t have to be placed near a router.  Obihai has been top rated for customer satisfaction at Amazon and elsewhere.  There’s more info at O-b-i-h-a-i.com.  You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
