After a customer of our sold us on ACN for VOIP service we felt inclined to use them since we felt that we owed a customer some return service. This was a huge mistake. They refuse to allow you to add service or additional lines unless the phone equipment is purchased through them, which requires you to purchase phones at a premium price. Far higher than you would purchase anywhere else. They told us that it has to be their phones, because other phones are not programmed with their software. I tested this and purchased an identical model phone on amazon for less than half the price, and it linked into our VIOP system flawlessly. After 2 years of dealing with headaches, problems, a website portal that is the most unfriendly user portal I have ever used, and we use several in our business, and customer service telling us lie after lie to ensure they maximize their profits, we decided to switch to Nextiva. Not only are we getting better service, and much, much, much easier portal access, but we're getting it at a much better price with way better customer support. We needed to access the system base in order to reset the services through Nextiva. Guess what, ACN changed the factory username and password to lock us out of the equipment that WE PAID FOR AND OWN! They refused to give us the username and password to access our equipment and told us that it is company policy. They won't buy back the equipment, and won't allow us to access the equipment. Like I said, a company founded on greed. Force you to purchase their equipment, then lock you out of it. Not a company with honesty or integrity. Call Nextiva or ANY other service! You'll be glad that you did.

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 signed a 5 year lease in NYC. I signed a 5 year contract with Windstream. When my lease was up, I moved my offices... and they continued to try and bill me 3 more months (or an early termination fee). Then I remembered why... because it took them close to 3 months in delays to initially get me up and running in the first place!!! So 5 years ago I struggled with no service. 5 years later (now) I’m stuck paying an exorbitant, some would argue ‘draconian’ cancellation fee. And THAT’S not even the worst of it. So I move my office. And try to migrate my office number to my new location and new service provider. That’s right, you guessed it: Windstream was unable to transfer my number for... you guessed it... about 3 months. So for three months, I had to keep apologizing to my clients, and for three months I had to keep using my personal cell phone for my entire office phone communications. I actually believe the only reason I even got my number after 3 months was that I started talking to them about small claims court and threats of lawsuit. I would not recommend this company to my worst enemy. I would not cross the street to piss on them if they were on fire. I’m sorry if that seems rude or blunt, but it’s true. And everyone needs to know this. I hope they burn.

This is an awful company. No ethical standards at all. They were charging our church $240/month for VOIP phone services for years. We finally switched to Phone.com for $140/year! Not to mention the fact that when I called to disconnect services, they told me there was a 30 day notice, which means they were going to charge us for nearly 2 more months of service despite the fact that the number would already be ported to the new provider and we would no longer be using Windstream. Thieves.
