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 are the Biggest Liar. 1. Website said, Free Modem and $39.95. Got Bill for $69.95. They Charged me $9.95 for Modem (which was included) Also charged me phone line which was never Mentioned in website. Completely scam and I will Never go Back to them
I would provide 0 for all the 1s above if I could. I googled Windstream today. I call the number on the screen that says I can call for internet and phone additions/service. I want to add a phone line to my existing business account. I call the number. A man from another country answers. He says he cannot help me, and gives me the "service" number. I hang up and call the number - 855-575-7607. I need option 3 to add phone service. I press option 3 multiple times, only to have it continue to loop and offer me the same 4 options (this has happened to me on other occasions before today). I call the first number back from the website, to ask to be connected to someone who can help me spend more money with a worthless company. This time, I get a lady from a foreign country. She cannot help me. She says over and again, that she is not with Windstream....wait, isn't this the number I called from the Windstream site? She cannot have someone call me back, she cannot connect me, and she cannot help me. Beyond frustrated at this point. I then call the local St. Louis number, whereupon I do get an American who provided the help that was needed in the first place. Unfortunately, this is not the first massive communication I have had with Windstream. If I can switch all of our business accounts, I will do that as soon as possible. If you have a choice, do NOT choose Windstream. Run far and fast.
