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.
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.
