I have had nothing but trouble from Comcast. When we first signed up my 84 year old mother was only charged $20 a month for her phone service which was great! I had to add internet for a few months to use a canary to see how she was getting around in her apartment. They signed us up for another contract without telling us and then when I took the internet off her phone bill was $60 a month! She is on a fixed income and cannot afford this phone bill. After calling and talking with several people no one would reduce her payment back to the original $20. I found a wireless router through straight talk and you can still use your home phone and it is only $15 a month. If you have any other sources to use please use someone else besides Comcast. They would not even import her phone number over and we had to change her phone number!!
Last night, 5/31/2018 my wife recorded the NBA Playoff 1st game of the series because I work third shift. When I got home this morning. The game was taken from my DVR Comcast/Xfinity list. DELETED!!!!!! I am so pissed because that is one reason that we purchased this option! This is not the first time. There has college and NFL football games. There has been college and NBA games and other programs. Comcast acts as they are GOD by with the simple thing as a click of a button they can make that decision and it's wrong. Just plain wrong!!! STOP IT!!!! Again, that's what we pay for. We don't want and shouldn't have to watch a rerun or replay! Whatever you choose to call it.
I set up a voice.ms account yesterday and configured that account using an Obi202 today. I was running into difficulties with the configuration so-called "customer services" for support and was told that voip.ms does not recommend obi talk and I could not get configuration help other than through the receipt of a pretty technical pdf sheet that they provided a link to. When I asked which devices they do support I was told "Can't recommend a device as I'm not a user or haven't used them all". In short, the voip.ms service agents are so ill-trained they know zippo about the devices that work on the service that employs them. The alternative is that they are instructed to avoid answering. I gave up on that customer service rep (Fred) and sought the help I needed through other online forums, which I found. After configuring the service, I made my first call on the voip.ms line (which is through their Vancouver 2 exchange) to my cellphone, my cellphone indicated the incoming call was from Russia so I placed a support ticket with voip and asked two questions. The first was: What do I need to do to reflect that the call was placed from the Vancouver area, not Russia? The second was: Is voip was a Russian based service? Neither of my questions were answered by the support agent (John) but I did get some lame excuse about why Russia might be shown as the origin of the call. That excuse did not sound plausible. Of the $20 I uploaded to my voip account yesterday, $10.10 was consumed in setting up which includes a month's outgoing calls, which is pretty reasonable. However, a voip service that mistakenly indicates I'm placing calls from Russia will result in so many calls not being answered that the service is not worth having. That, along with the quite derisory quality of customer service I received, and the risk of voip.ms being a Russian based company with whatever potential security issues that might attach to that circumstance, means I'm dropping them today like a hot potato.
Been using voip.ms for 5 yrs - no issues other than an the odd re-set of carrier server and then my service is back online. Haven't had service for 2 days now. Voip.ms website for config is "this site can't be reached" on Google search. Has Voip.ms gone under/out of business? How do I get my DID number back from them? Anybody have any thoughts? SOL for the moment
