Up until recently I was using long distance cards purchased at the local drugstore. The problem with these cards is that you never get the minutes you think you are paying for. Calling within our state to another area code costs 3 times more than I thought it would. Plus minutes sometimes mysteriously disappeared for no apparent reason. With Hello Highway you get exactly what you pay for and you no longer have to enter multiple digit phone numbers and pass codes. I simple dial a local phone number and dial the person I'm calling. It even allows for speed-dialing. Hello Highway makes it simple and I highly recommend them to anyone.
I use Hello Highway's service regularly and it is a great value!
Horrible - Dishonest - Useless Customer Service - Lie about contracts They lie right off the bat when they call you. At least the guy who calls to hook you speaks your language. After that it's accents you can't translate from call centers with a million other voices in the background. I agreed to their services in 2018 with free first month and 6th month. That was a lie. Never happened! Tried the customer service on that. Of course they say they don't know anything about that. Customer service person I can't understand. Ask if there is someone who can speak better English and am told "NO" Can't email me. Doesn't care. Over the years, they have added about $25 to my bill. Bogus taxes - unexplained "Other Charges" Got a letter a few months ago with a bill. The bill was for my gradually ever-increasing bill amount, the letter says I'm being charged another $20+ for some other taxes they had failed to include on my bill for the last year. Paid that. Couldn't bring myself to suffer through a useless episode with overseas customer service agent. Finally sick of them, switched the line over to a cell with Verizon. Lingo continuing to bill me for a service they have not been providing for two months. Paid it once. The second time I call Customer service. Hung up on. Call again 15 minutes on hold - another guy I can't understand. What I am able to get from him: Verizon didn't notify them (A lie, Verizon can't use the number until Lingo releases it - I waited several days for that to happen) I am suppose to still owe the bills + more to come which will include a $200 Early termination charge!!! Say I am under some other contract that they can't provide me with. Just simply a lying scamming company . By the way, they were called Birch Communications when I signed up. They changed to Lingo somewhere along the line. Not BBB accredited - No shock there I'll update this when I get my next statement.
I signed up for my elderly mom, who cannot use a cell phone. We had been happy with the service, and the price was better than AT&T, plus included 1500 minutes of long distance, which AT&T does not unless you pay a lot extra. Recently my mom's phone was out of order, and we had to wait a week to get it back working. (It was a line/cable problem.) In addition to a terribly long wait, customer service was absolutely horrible! Excessive wait times, incorrect trouble tickets, ZERO customer service on weekends. Today I am calling them about a billing question, and so far have been on hold for 1 hour and 45 minutes SO FAR. I don't want to call back and start all over, so I've got the phone on speaker and on the charger.
