We signed up for this service; our router was a Linksys SPA3102 (brand new).  They could not get the phone to ring, and we could not receive incoming calls.  Despite this, they continued to bill us, and after the first attempt to fix our connection, they stopped responding to email.  After 2 weeks, we made the move to Vonage, and after installing our router (which amounted to connecting it), our phone began to ring again and all worked correctly.  We had a balance of nearly $40 with ContactTel, and we asked them to close the account and mail the balance to us, or send it by email money order:  never happened.  That was 8 months ago, and we don't expect to see that money again.  This place is a total rip off.

Jive was a breeze to set up. In the 6 months we've had Jive as our phone system, we haven't had any issues or outages. Much appreciated after having problems with previous providers using Voip.

If you work for a company that has any sort of multi-line phone network and you have ever wondered how it all works, this service does just that. It allows so much flexibility whether you are directing multiple phone numbers to one receptionist or if you need to make sure several agents only receive calls from specific lines of business. Other systems I have worked with require a complex combination of button presses and codes and sometimes that still doesn't work how you hope. With Jive, you get to lay out exactly how the calls are supposed to route and flow. You are given a blank window with lots of options. You can physically take the different buttons and place them and route them from one to the next. Each button generally has additional settings down to the way the caller ID shows up when coming in from a certain line, to the type of hold music they will hear while waiting for you to answer. I appreciate the flexibility for any office type that this will offer.
