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.
They have the worst call service. They behave like thieves and will take money from your account without informing you.
Please don’t waste your money. THIS is what I emailed them - Apr 19, 2021, 17:53 UTC I have used so many apps to make international calls, and so far your app has been the worst call quality. Used every which way possible, data, WiFi, phone line, called FROM different locations, different phones, called different numbers, same issue everywhere. No customer servie person to call, ONLY EMAIL!! WHAT?! Are we living in the 90’s??? And when emailed customer service, was told to send photo??? Really? Horrible experience! Going to tell anyone and everyone possible to STAY AWAY from you guys and save money and time. I had to chancel and look for something else. Not worth a single penny. AND THIS IS HOW THEY RESPONDED Ryan (Rebtel) Apr 21, 2021, 3:59 UTC Thanks a lot for getting in touch! I understand you would prefer a fast call, however, due to troubleshooting we currently only offer support through chat or email, so we don't have a phone number you can dial to reach us and we're very sorry if you have to go through all this I know how frustrating this must be to you. I understand the purpose why my colleague has asked you to send a screenshot because we want to make sure that you're only using the WIFI option only because we can see from your account that you're using the Phone Lines all the way from Last year and we did not see any changes with your connection. If you have been with the biggest TELCO company in the US you have probably gone through some troubleshooting too but it's different with Rebtel since we do not have phone support so that is why we have to ask you series of questions and sometimes screenshots for our reference. We respect if your judgment about Rebtel is a horrible app but if you measure that by how we attend to our user's complain then you probably have not been to any biggest TELCO where they have the worst troubleshooting process compared to us. You may cancel the account if you can't bear with the way we communicate with you, I am so sorry but we can only help you through email and if you do not have patience with it we cannot do anything about it. Yes, we're not in the '90s anymore but emailing is fun and you should find that way too. Thank you for being the best part of Rebtel! Best Regards, Ryan Rebtel Customer Team
