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.
Customer for over 3 years. When it works, it's great, but you can expect issues several times a year and they can be catastrophic when they occur. Unfortunately, customer service is email only - you get an instant reply that they acknowledge the inquiry, but days go by without a response or solution. My last issue lasted 4 days and by pure luck, I found a disgruntled former customer who had the same problem who posted the fix before leaving them. I have done the same. They are old and tired and there are better solutions out there.
I have this service for 3+ years and I am a believer. Yes, there is an occasional issue that comes up, but no worse than any other option out there. Good price, quality and overall service.
