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 have been using Voip.ms for over 6 years and transitioned to them slowly to ensure that we had no problems. We are now running 12 lines and have had virtually zero down time over the last 24 months. As I am a bit of a tinkerer and tweaker with ATAs, I have had a few minor glitches - mainly self inflicted - which the boys in customer service were ready, willing and able to help cure. I have NEVER had a problem with customer service.It is important to realize that they know THEIR system inside and out - and can often assist with basic info on the ATAs and other client owned equipment - but that is NOT their job. VOIP by itself is a tricky thing to play with. The basic features of VOIP.ms are typically not to hard to master. And they add feature after feature as they continue to develop their products. I had used 2 other VOIP services before deciding on VOIP.ms - and neither came even close to the quality and service that VOIP.ms has provided. I have had contact with probably all their customer service reps to help me through the changes that I have made (and sometimes messed up), and have never had even a mediocre experience. It has always bee FIRST CLASS!
I needed to call a US embassy this week. INTL calls are blocked on all accounts until you submit your ID to their online form. Form says they'll unlock INTL calls within 24 hours. That was Thursday. Still ignored through Wednesday, I had to go into chat but INTL calls were now clearly unlocked to make INTL calls. When I went to make the call, their servers were not configured to allow service. I'm not a novice at SIP clients and following their setup guides. The problem really was they hadn't configured routing correctly on their server. I informed them and they blamed the inbuilt Android SIP client and asked I used Zoiper. Same problem with Zoiper because they hadn't setup the routes in their server. I even sent them a screen recording and screenshots making it all unmistakable the problem was on their end. A day later, without apologizing for not acknowledging the problem was on their end and wasting a bunch of my time, they messaged back "it's possible to enable the routes to your account for the destination you've reported, however, please note that calls to this destination will have a rate of $0.34" That's interesting because their call rate sheet advertised $0.06. I say go ahead and do it because I don't expect them to lose money and I just want it working finally. They promise they've "enabled the routes." Another day later, nope, yet again they failed to actually do it. I inform them. The say they'll fix it. Another day later I try a final time. Nope still not fixed. I sign up for Google Voice which works immediately and just say they handled fixing it exceedingly poor. Their response...not an apology but suggesting I was using the incorrect dial codes which was demonstrably wrong given our correspondence and the screen recording I'd sent them.
