I have several models of Obi's, they work well.

If for no other reason, Please consider buying one for safety purposes.
Consider having an Obi for insurance -- what happens when your kids are home alone, or with a baby sitter, and the cell phone is misplaced, or the cell phone battery is dead?
Or perhaps you are sick of the crappy cell phone signal in your house, or tired of people asking you what you said because the voice quality of cells phones is worse than VOIP or a traditional land line.
Or you just want to save a lot of money, compared to traditional land lines!

Bonus, with the Obi 202, you can have two simultaneous conversations at once!  Your roomate, wife or kids can be on one line, and you can still receive and make calls on the other line.
Works with Google Voice which is free, or with many VOIP providers.

NO monthly fees involved (after warranty expires, you can download firmware updates for free manually) or you can pay $10 a year for Premium Technical support which will give you auto updates
Obi extras cost $4.99 a month

Best quality and less hassle: connect OBi to router with ethernet cable.  Use cordless phones, to extend from there, or connect to home wiring (after making absolutely sure your inside phone wiring is disconnected from the Telco wiring)

Is there a monthly fee involved?  Looks like Obitalk charges $4.95/mo to use Google Voice, is that correct?

Can this work with the FAR USB Wi-Fi adaptor from Newegg yesterday?

  I believe $4.99 / month is only if you choose to buy OBiExtras which gives additional features.

I've been using Obi with google voice for about 2 years and have not had to pay for anything extra. Call quality is excellent and my internet speed is 10mbps (which has proven more than adequate for streaming and obi).

Just wait until they decide to charge you for firmware upgrades just to keep it working. My Obi100 no longer works with Google Voice and I can't upgrade the firmware to work without paying Obi. While I don't think companies should be expected to support their hardware forever, it's still a little hard to take that they have working firmware but I have to pay for it.

EDIT: apparently it can be done manually as explained HERE.

To answer my own question, I tested the dongle from http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/expired-deals/1542710 I just received on my OBI200 and found it to be working perfectly. So this is a cheap alternative to OBI's expensive Wi-Fi adaptor.
