Hi All,

Sorry, I can't find a straight answer to this. Is the OBi212 coming to the UK? If so, does anyone know when?

Thanks.

I have no inside knowledge and I suspect that those at Obihai who might be able to give a definitive answer do not read posts on this forum.

The 212 model has been in short supply in the US and Obihai may wish to meet the pent-up demand there before supplying elsewhere.

Available at amazon.com for $96

We're asking about UK availability. Which, sadly, the OBi212 still is not.

Amazon UK are not currently showing any Obihai products.  No ATAs, no IP phones, no accessories.

Amazon.com will ship an Obi212 to the UK but I assume it will come with a US plug type power adapter.

Have you tried asking Obihai directly?  We don't have any insight as to their supply chain.

Although it's an American plug the product is available to the UK !!

Yes, I asked them on 22nd March and had this answer:

The OBi212 should be in stock shortly. Please continue to monitor for availability.

Thank you for being an Obihai customer.

Regards,

Team Obihai


I asked again a short time ago but I've had no reply.

Doesn't make sense to me to import a telecoms product from the USA with no guarantee that it complies with UK standards & regulations, aside from the wrong shape plug! If they're no longer supporting the UK market and/or can't supply the product here in the normal way, I'll look for an alternative.

Well, it's now 2019 and you still cannot get OBi products anywhere in the EU. Amazon.com won't deliver so we're stuffed. Time to look at the competition.
Pity really, they were the only product to fit my situation.

Hi,

I'm also disappointed by this. Tried emailing Polycom twice but they don't reply. I'm still using the OBi110 and a key feature for me is the ability to block spam calls in the InboundCallRoute. It works so I'll stick until I find something that includes that essential feature. If you know of a viable alternative I'd love to hear.

Thanks.
