Is there a changelog to what's been updated in the 5695ex version?  I'm on 5463ex on both 200/202 devices without any issues other than dhcp not quite working right.  https://www.obitalk.com/forum/index.php?topic=12912.0

Generally stay away from firmware updated on embedded devices unless there's significant issues or major improvements.

Nope! The firmware with "EX" in its name includes support for OBiExtras, and is aimed primarily at the BYOD market. There has been no release notes made publicly available for this type of firmware, and to date, I haven't found any on their server.

It's likely that the firmware with "EX" in its name is in fact the same as the non "EX" firmware, which is aimed primarily at service providers and system integrators and doesn't include support for OBiExtras.

What version firmware should I be running on my Obi200? How can I find out which version firmware is currently on my Obi?
Thanks

Pick up the phone attached to the OBi, and key in ***0 then 1# and the OBi will read back the installed firmware level.  The latest available version is 3.1.1.5695EX (the automated attendant will only read back numeric digits; you can ignore the "EX" suffix.

You can manually download and install the firmware, here:  http://fw.obihai.com/OBi202-3-1-1-5695EX.fw

Although the URL contains "202", this firmware also supports the OBi 200 model.

I know that I've heard that my Obi box will only work for 1 year unless I pay $20 for Obi Tech support. Is this true, or am I able to manually update the firmware and be able to keep my Obi connected to my Google Voice to keep it completely free forever?

Thanks!

You need to get your hearing examined. Smiley

Maybe your eyes too as your seem blind to the contents of the post above by SteveInWA. And http://www.obitalk.com/forum/index.php?topic=9.0 is a sticky. In the index, the third line above the topic you posted in.

(There is no automatic timeout that your Obi stops working after 1 year.)

Thanks for your great feedback. SteveInWA's post doesn't say anything about being able or not being able to continue upgrading the firmware to keep your obi up to date. And plus this is a forum were we post things that we have questions on, as I do not have time to sit on these forums for hours looking for an answer.

Seems to me that you got the answer to your question. I note that you haven't produced anything to back up your assertion that you heard "that my Obi box will only work for 1 year unless I pay $20 for Obi Tech support".

I suggest that if you can't take a bit of leg-pulling you should stay away from forums.
