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.

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!
