Customer service acted as though they could care less about the fact that they were taking 3 days pay from me. I spoke to two different reps with the same attitude. Why on earth would anyone want to stay with this company ... Be VERY careful ... vonage does the same thing
I have been a customer for a year now. The digital phone adapter I got was defective - having a normal phone conversation impossible. It took tech support awhile to figure out that their digital adapter was the problem. They were very helpful I must say and offer to replace the equipment. I have to use my cell phone to complete my calls because my caller constantly experiencing problems hearing me. It was annoyingly coming in and out. It was very frustrating having to repeat yourself all the times. What could be a 5 minutes conversation ending up being a 30 minutes call because of constantly repeating yourself. This was right from the start. I thought the issue would go away but it did not. All this was mentioned in my notes with tech support that I have been having the issue for the whole year. I barely use the service. The new adapter seems to be okay so far. I asked tech support if there is anything they can do like a courtesy credit for their faulty service. He advised me to speak to customer service. The lady bluntly told me that the fact that I had service - faulty or not they will be no credit. She also said tech support is aware of the issue ( from their note on the system) let them give me a credit. Their definition of service is once the phone make a connection that service. It does not matter if their adapter is faulty and the quality is so bad that you have to you your cell phone instead. Two thumbs down ACN!
We tried to use this system for about a year and it was an absolute nightmare. Dropped calls, phones crashing in the middle of a conference call, FXO sound quality was a complete joke, faxing never worked despite using supposedly supported interop scenarios and T.38 set up correctly, and numerous features that were supposedly included with our system were showing as blocked by the license. When we complained to PBXnSIP (now Snom) and tried to get tech support, they complained to us that we were a direct customer and that was not how they did business, we should instead contact the reseller for tech support. The reseller told us that their only channel of support with PBXnSIP was via the online support forums. It seems that PBXnSIP really went out of their way to try to avoid providing tech support. PBXnSIP was a total waste of time and money and caused a great deal of frustration. We switched to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express a while ago and couldn't be happier, unlike PBXnSIP it works reliably as advertised, interop with other products is fantastic. Unlike the Snom phones, the sound quality is actually good too.
We had high hopes to save money with them but its been short of a nightmare. We have swithed to a new company and haven't had any problems like with pbxnsip.
