I had Sagevone for around a year, and can't say much that is positive.I didn't have trouble with the uptime of the service but the call quality was constantly very , very, very poor, which made the service unusable. The voice quality itself was above average but parts of the conversation were lost, and this problem was constant and never solved.It was like dropping every other word, and it was just in one direction. The people that I talked to could hear me just fine, but I couldn't understand their responses because of this problem of missing every other word of the conversation. All VOIP tests run by them and me showed no problems with the connection over the Internet, with MOIP usually 4 or higher. The technical support seems to revolve around one person, which may be the owner. All of my problems were blamed on my ISP by the support person. After changing adapters, routers, cable modems, and switches several times, no problems were ever fixed. Call quality was the poorest when talking to them. They have a lot of features, a lot more than most, but if the service is always very poor, the features really don't matter.
After six months and two VoIP adapters I have never had reliable service. Calls drop at random times, audio drops out for several seconds, the audio quality is bad and lately, when I get an outside call all I here is a busy signal. When people call me they hear a ring tone but my phones do not ring, or they get a message "All lines are busy." When I contacted the SageVone service people I made appointments to talk with technical experts that were never kept. In six months I have never talked to a technical person. Their service representative was rude and abusive and blamed everyone except himself for the problems. They kept blaming my broadband service even though I sent test data showing that there was no problem on this end (6.5Mb/s isn't enough?!?). They also told me that their service is incomatible with MacOS and Linux systems. Something that they do not advertise. In my opinion, this is not a company to be trusted or patronized.
I got a call from them in first week of september 2011. Sales rep said, you can try it for 1 month for free and we will send a $50 visa gift card along with equipments just for trying it. You need to pay for shipping of equipment. I happily accepted this offer as internation plan during promotion for 18.99 was much cheaper than vonage and they charged $5.29 on my credit card. After 2 weeks of wait I received equipment. Just equipment. No account information, no welcome letter, no account number, no phone number.. absolutely nothing. Not even a no where should I contact in case of setup problem. And ofcourse... NO $50 VISA GIFT CARD. I went ahead and plugged it with my internet and there was no dial-tone. This equipment was not working. After doing google, I found customer support no and called them. They said tech-support is not available right now. Some one will give a call back tomorrow. Next day no call. Again I called after one day and with all apology a call back was promised, but no call back. I asked about $50 visa gift card, and they said, you will get one if you use this service for 3 months. But here service itself was not working. After few attempts, I left it as it is, bcoz my vonage works really gr8. But to my surprise, they billed my credit card following month for $20. The moment I saw change on my CC, called them back, and explained them whole story. Same response, you will get a call back, which never happened. Again, when I called, they said that they are going to cancell my account and refund all charged to my card. Its been 3 weeks, still I am waiting for a refund on my card. Finally called then again, and same response, you will get a call back. And most sursprising thing, without asking any account information, customer rep said, you will get a call back. Disgusting. I asked where will you call back and what account information you have.. as soon as I completed question, call on hold... When she came back, she read out some other account, some other name... Let's see if I get a callback next day...
