Here's links to my entire series thus far:

Review of the Obihai OBi110 VoIP device, Part 1: Use your phone with Google Voice for free incoming and outgoing calls

Review of the Obihai OBi110 VoIP device, Part 2: The OBiTALK portal, documentation, and using the device as an FXO port with Asterisk

Review of the Obihai OBi110 VoIP device, Part 3: 911 on the cheap?

Review of the Obihai OBi110 VoIP device, Part 4: How to use the OBi110 as an FXO port with Asterisk and FreePBX

First look at the Obihai OBi100 VoIP device: Like the OBi110, but smaller and less expensive, and without the Line port

How to use the Obihai OBi100 or OBi110 VoIP device as a gateway between Asterisk/FreePBX and Google Voice and/or the OBiTALK network

How to use the Obihai OBi100 or OBi110 VoIP device as a gateway between Asterisk/FreePBX and Google Voice and/or the OBiTALK network Part 2: Using the Phone port as an Asterisk extension

I still feel like I've only scratched the surface here - I think that with a little thought and effort you could do a lot of creative things with these units, given that you can route calls from one service to any other service (or even do "hairpin turns" on the same service - see the comments section under Part 4).  The more people that get their hands on these units, the more I think we will see them put to clever and creative uses.

Just checking to see if anybody tried OBI110 with Vonage using its call transfer feature to make parallel calls without holding the Vonage line.
