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.

Where do I start? The worst is that they have a bug in their billing code. It records 911 calls as international calls which aren't included in most of their packages. A call to 911 generates a negative balance preventing subsequent calls including another 911 emergency call. One has to add the minimum of $10, above and beyond the monthly charge to reinstate service or wait call customer service and argue your case. The balance of the $10 is stuck in Voicestick coffers in case you need to make an international call or god forbid another 911 call. They won’t take it off your next bill. Customer support is minimal with only business hours (8-5) access, poorly trained people and a desire to close tickets that greatly exceeds their willingness to help customers. User features are minimal at best despite continuing promises to add features. There isn’t any “call busy” or “no answer” rollover which makes their “business service” useless for most organizations needing multiple incoming lines. If you are looking for fast track features, Voicestick is a Yugo when most people are looking for a Cadillac. Many services give tours of their online interface for prospective customers; Voicestick has to be too embarrassed to offer a tour… Call quality is fair on their best day, unusable on some days. Finally, there are the outages including the THREE day one caused by server failure. For an operation as big as they claim to be to not have back up systems is inexcusable.
