Where do I start - The sales representatives are taught well. They will manipulate you into thinking their product is great and will give you no issues, but that's far from the truth. I heard their sales representative present their product and while all seems to be on the leading edge of technology, it really isn't. The company takes no responsibility for any of their network issues, from outages or no service on your phones. Not only will your phones only work 50% of the time (if that) but when submitting a ticket for support, you have to go through their help desk first and getting a response from someone on their technical side is a never ending cat and mouse chase. That is, if you get someone to reply to you. Outages happen every three or so weeks, sometimes less, causing your phones to go out every so often. So if you like paying for terrible service from tech reps who sound like they hate their jobs and never actually having your phones or circuits work, iCore/Vonage is great for you. Please do yourself a favor and stay far away from this atrocious company.
Customer service completely SUCKS, both technical support and account management in response time and in solving the issues. The quickest I have had a "high priority" ticket fixed is 6 hours, and right now there is one that it has been 3 days and it is still not fixed. And I have had multiple techs working on the same ticket because I call in to get an update and they try and walk me through the same troubleshooting steps the tech before them had be do because they don't manage their ticket system well or the employees are just too lazy to enter in what they already had me try.<br /> The phone system they gave us (Polycom VX500) has had issue after issue rising after 6 months of use. One major issue happened that it was proven it was the phones before 1 year warranty expired, but they procrastinated getting new phone and then after the one year tried to give the excuse they weren't under warranty anymore. Horrid reviews of the phones were found online after this. Our network partially discounts at least once a week for at least 1 employee's workstation, and again they take forever to get it fixed.
I replaced my VOIP with a Cox Business bundle which included an enhanced internet speed and Cox VOIP. Cox represented that its voice quality on its VOIP would be far superior to my Vonage system because Cox VOIP had an independent internet connection which did not connect to my desktop computer. Conversations are garbled on 60 to 70% of the calls. More than 50% of the calls are disrupted completely when the person on the other end of the line can not hear me when I am speaking. I am forced to return business calls on my cell phone to complete conversations. The message voice recognition feature which emails transcripts of messages to my Outlook Inbox is highly inaccurate. The messages are unintelligible. In short, my conversion to Cox VOIP has been a disastrous mistake. Even worse, the COX VOIP phone service is more expensive than the VOIP system it replaced. The Cox VOIP appears to be based on very outdated technology. The quality is similar to the first generation voice recognition systems that I experienced 10 or 25 years ago. CAVEAT EMPTOR. Do not purchase a Cox VOIP service.
I have visited 6771 Quail Hill Pkwy. Irvine, CA 92603 location last month. I wanted to return my COX Tv. They said that if I return it my monthly payment going to increase. They said I have a promotional rate of up to 2 years. And This month I received my bill $37 more. I contacted customer service and explain the situation. The customer representative was worse than the actual Cox Rep. in the store. They "DO NOT CARE" about customer's problems at all!!! Please stay away from them. I am going to cancel my service tomorrow.
