Im a total newbie when it comes to using voip, but i did a lot of reading on the subject. After getting my last phone bill (yes i like to talk) i decided to take the plunge and signed up with atlantic telecom. The sign up process only took about 5 minutes in all and i got all my instructions by email soon after. My box arrived after 3 days (i was told up to 7) and was very pleased with myself after figuring out what to do with the cables. - yes im a female and know nothing about computers and the like. Anyway to cut a long story short i have to say WOW. The call quality is very very good and i love the features i get including voicemail to email - very neat! For $19.99 a month i get unlimited USA / Canada & Europe calls (my mothers in england) and i am just so impressed with the whole thing. I recently found out i can even use my laptop with a phone called x-phone or something like that - its pretty cool too. I have never used anyone else for voip, but im glad i chose the company i did - top marks all around. My account management features are really easy to use and i can log in at anytime to see anything i need to. I kept my phone number for FREE too, no porting. There was no small print or catches that i found with other providers - another big plus for me. With this atlantic telecom, unlimited is unlimited, not limited like vonage
I moved to Cox Cable because of the decent price they were offering which works for what I needed, but instead they sold me something I absolutely did not need. When I called back after a month(Just trying to be nice so I tried it out)to cancel the services I did not need, once again a customer rep( Shannon from Las Vegas)was doing everything she can to discourage me from removing some of my services. Why can't they understand that some people just don't need/want the services they are trying to shove down your throat. Who needs a home phone this days? And cable, one day will be obsolete!!! Cox cable is now turning out to be a bad decision I made. I guess cancelation is my best option
I was dumb enough to fall for the bundle from Cox for TV, Internet, and Phone. I did explain at the time that I only needed basic phone service with NO long distance, no added features, and a minimum charge for the phone service. The first month bill came in with charges for both long distance and collect calls. I live alone and know I did not place the calls or accept any collect calls. Checking the bill ALL of the long distance calls were operater assisted calls. I called Cox and was told by the CSR that they would check to find out why the blocks weren't working, then transferred to billing where the calls were credited back to my account. Second month: More charges for both long distance and collect calls! Same proceedure, called customer service and was told that she would escalate the issue to tech support to find out why the blocks were not working then another transfer to billing (with the long hold time, of course) where I was issued a credit. Third month: $300 dollars in long distance and collect calls! Again, called Customer Service where they will send the issue to tech support to find out why the blocks weren't working, and another transfer to billing where I was told that they can't block those calls AND that they don't issue credit for them! I called their corporate office in Atlanta and spoke to the problem resolution people who told me: They CAN block those calls and will find out why the block isn't working. They DID issue a credit for the calls. THEN they explained that if you have an answering machine and it picks up you WILL be charged for a collect call, even though you didn't actually answer the phone! They never did explain the operated assisted long distance calls though, or why their system isn't blocking them!
