I tried a couple of competitors before settling on Avad Tech. I really appreciate the reliability of the service and the support. My business is fast paced and telephone dependent, I seldom need support and when I do they are right on the spot. Avad techs actually know what they are doing and not just surfing the web for answers!! BTW I strongly recommend you go with the suggested Edgewater router. It really solved my voice qulaity issues by protecting the VoIP traffic!
Overall, I am vry happy with AVAD's service.They are very willing to spend the time with me on support issues, which I think is very important for small businesses.
I don’t recommend opting for multiple years of service of Magic Jack because if the device should fail within that period, you must replace it with a new device and a new subscription and there is no way to transfer the unused subscription months to the new device and no refund of the unused months. Also, don’t fall for the 911 surcharge that Magic Jack is offering. The Magic Jack plus works just fine when calling 911. I occasionally get a recorded reminder on the Magic Jack VoIP to pay the additional fee to call 911.
I would recommend the Magic Jack Plus to friends and make them aware that it is a very inexpensive phone service. The caller ID thing working from time to time with only the number displayed is a bit annoying. Caller ID names do not appear. This could be the third-party caller ID provider as MJ does not provide this service. There are a lot of comments on the Internet concerning the dysfunctional caller ID so I suspect their product has something to do with the problem. If Magic Jack would just fix the poor sound quality and the caller ID issue this product would be as close to perfect as the POTS phones (Plain Old Telephone Service), a.k.a. landline phones. With the money I save by using Magic Jack Plus I am OK with it.
