After having constant trouble with my MagicJack phone and getting limited customer support to make it better I started a search to find a replacement. My primary concern was the cost, I wanted something super cheap because we don't use the home phone very much. I also wanted something that would allow me to block unwanted spam and telemarketing calls that MagicJack allowed (I sometimes suspect MJ sold my number because of the large number of unwanted calls I received). I purchased a used OBI-100 on Ebay to use as the adapter. It was super easy to configure and CallCentric was great about porting my number to them at no cost. Along the way I had several questions about the porting process and after that how to correctly configure my account to block the unwanted calls and allow my phone contacts to get directly through. Each time I contacted customer support (email only through their website) they were prompt, thorough and courteous with their reply. The amount of features offered and the ability to configure your account to accommodate your calling schedule is unbelievable. I was so impressed that I even wrote to customer service praising them with their efforts. I've often written reviews in the past of products or services that I was unhappy with but never one from a company that I would like to see succeed like CallCentric. If you're thinking about trying an internet phone company this is your best and least expensive alternative.
For low or moderate call usage CallCentric is an unparalleled highly cost-effective provider. Their customer service is by message exchanges within the account interface and I found the text-based approach provided access to consistently high expertise and relatively fast responses. The online instructions and documentation are thorough and professional. For DIY configuration of VoIP their account interface provided everything I needed to know. I like the fact that the user can provide their own compatible interface hardware to suit their needs. The process of line porting was well organized and progressed smoothly. Features are wonderful, especially for the low price. I do wish there was a more effective way to exclude the high volume of spam calls that are now typical, however the CallCentric "call treatment" filters and telemarketer block feature do divert a substantial proportion of unwanted call attempts. The sound quality has been very good. Reliability has been good, but I have experienced one dropped call in 2 months while no ISP service disruption at my location was indicated, so could not provide the top 5* rating for reliability.
As with many other VoIP providers, support is very poor. The issues "can't be replicated".... Eventually one just gives up. We used them for some origination services because of their easy to use GUI but reliability of the service is very questionable. We experienced a number of outages and the company's management did not do anything to rectify the situation other than admitting "an error on their part". CDR was not working fo rthe better pasrt of a year. We ordered several DIDs that turned out not to be availible (previously assigned). This is certainly not a company that can handle the needs of a wholesale client.
Best Features to name a few: Easy to use portal - lot of providers portals are clunky Geo-Redundant Pops/Proxies: Denver, L.A., Frankfurt, and Hong Kong - was told more coming soon Excellent Customer Support - always freindly and helpful, and can be reached 24/7 - I can finally relax Flexible pricing for Wholesalers - they were able to get me first class rates for my customers that want cheap rates, and have premium routes for my demanding customers that want quality The only carrier to offer a real billing Solution - DTH billing Dialer Friendly carrier - high or low ASR, they will take the traffic International Carrier - premium and non-cli FreeSwitch Friendly - their support knows FreeSwitch!! Hosted Servers and PBXs - they will do custom solutions for High Availability, remote backup, remote voice recording, etc.... Secured VMs - the VMs I bought were FreePBX Asterisk based, and were properly patched and up to date with iptables Multi-Alert 911 solution - this feature is cool, it will notify you by SMS if a customer dial 911 - no more crazy bills IP Authentication - no user based authentication yet, but was told it is being added within a few weeks Keep up the great work guys
