We were happy with Lingo service since 2005. However, the current customer service from their current parent company (Birch Telecom - since March 2016) is of no value. It is easy to reach the company at their sales line (still the old Lingo organization), but a nightmare to reach customer service (Birch Telecom). We spent several hours on hold today before we were able to reach a customer service representative to cancel our account -- such bad service, we could not even make phone calls any more. We received an automated cancelation confirmation e-mail with information about how to e-mail the company. E-mail messages to [email protected] are rejected -- "You have reached an email address that is not monitored for responses." Additionally, the cancellation e-mail told us they would send a return label (and charge us $9.95 for the label) to return a Lingo adapter. The problem is that we never received a Lingo adapter; we used our own equipment to connect to the service. They also threatened to charge us $75.00 equipment recovery fee for equipment we never received from Lingo. At one time, Lingo was a reliable US company. Now, Lingo is a scam company that should be avoided -- don't even consider trying any of their services -- find a reliable competitor for VoIP phone service.

A continuation/update of my experience with Lingo. To recap, reception was always awful and sometimes impossible. Every problem except getting paid was unfixable. Their email was turned on and off repeatedly. The contact phone number for both customer service and tech support was turned on and off. I emailed them on December 7 as a final cancellation after repeated emails and calls over 7 months asking them to roll back my account to where I had understood it to be, the basic account. My payment should have been under $20 as advertised. As of my last payment they had me up over $43. To add insult to injury, when I called to confirm that the account was closed and a refund for the remainder of the month would be forth coming, I was told they do not refund anything. I was told that emailing my cancellation was not acceptable to them. So, keep in mind, they only do things officially using a medium that does not allow one to document their actions. In addition, they are mailing me a shipping label, but I was told it definitely will not arrive before January but I would not be billed. We'll see how that turns out. Heads up, they merged with Birch Communications.

We are a medical office who used Ring Central. After time we realized we needed to expand. After shopping around we found Cyclix and everything was great ever since we start our process. They helped us every single step of the way and were very dedicated. The system has been functional for some time. The best part was the transition, we did not even realized it happened! We are happy with their fax system. It was the main reason for us to switch due to lost faxes with Ring Central. The call clarity is great. The pricing is amazing. I cannot say enough about the staff, especially Emily, she has been helping our company an immense amount with us fine tuning the system the way we need it to function at an efficient pace.

This review comes from a global operation with over 1000 employees and over 60 locations in the USA and Canada. We used Cyclix redundant SIP Trunk product which simplified our VoIP Enterprise Solution. We've managed VoIP phone systems since the early 2000's when they were first being introduced. We slowly transitioned from PRI/T1 technology to SIP with Cyclix over the years with a near flawless transition. Voice quality never suffered. As always with any transition we did have some hurdles or incompatibilities but the Cyclix support engineering staff helped resolve and even provide guidance to our integrator. I would highly recommend Cyclix to any Small to Medium sized business looking for SIP Trunk Solutions or Hosted solutions.
