I was with this company for years. Because at the time VOIP phone carriers did not have the best reputation overall, I never bothered to shop until an unethical behavior surfaced. During a phone call with one of their reps, he identified for me that I was being charged for a phone that I never ordered or received for about 2-3 years. Their invoices are not the easiest to read anymore since it has a bunch of model and ID numbers etc.... Once I addresses this concern, which I was convinced that it would be refunded since I never ordered this phone and company errors occur all of the time, they decided to throw at me the 30 day terms and conditions story. That should apply for those who ordered a phone, but not when phones are added to an account without knowing. The monthly amount for that phone was not much, but adding it for the time period it was over 200 dollars. This issue was escalated and still they would not budge to work or retain my business. Everyone agreed with me that I wanted a refund, but they said that a phone was mailed out. Once I inquired of who was the signer, it was not even someone from my office. Who knows if they added this phone to my account but requested by another customer of theirs. Even with all of that proof, nothing was done. Then I reached out to the Facebook chat and a lady by the name of Keisha (Director of Marketing) responded that my concern would be shared with the CEO of the company. How they wanted to help me resolve my issue. After I provided her my e-mail address to begin that process 2 weeks went by and nothing ever happened. I reached out again to her and she apologized for no one to contact me etc..., but again no solution to retain. I have returned all the phones and my account is paid up-to-date, I keep e-mailing the RMA department with a request to update me on the next steps to close my account. No responses!! I just left their manager a message and hopefully she will end this nightmare for me. Clients can leave companies and return in the future, but this client will never return and will make sure that I will never refer any new prospects to this company again. Not sure what the story was with Fonality changing to NetFortris, but Netfortris has been worse. I am thrilled with my new carrier and always address all of my questions. Good luck ever signing up with this company.
This company deserves a 0 star review. Their service and customer service are terrible. Their mobile technology and mobile app are terrible. I was never notified of my renewal in advance and when I tried to cancel the service it was a week long process that ended with threat of a $5600 termination fee (over 10 times the annual cost of service excluding taxes). Now they have auto-renewed my service for another year. I tried to contact their billing department today and was sent to voicemail. They must be using another provider because the voicemail attendant seemed to work. Avoid using this company at all cost. DO NOT USE FONALITY!
