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 contracted with #Ring Central for VoIp phone service for my small business in 2013. It went pretty well with #Ring Central for the first few years. I started have technical issues with the #Ring Central phone and had to use the customer service. #Ring Central customer service uses off US shore call centers. It is very difficult to understand the #Ring Central CSR's. Fast forward to 2019. I was fed-up with the #Ring Central customer service so I switched carriers. After porting my number to the new carrier I contacted #Ring Central customer service to cancel. The #Ring Central CSR informed me that I was in a contract and would have to pay $300 to leave. The #Ring Central CSR informed me that I was in an auto renew contract and I missed the grace period to cancel. I contacted a California attorney. I was told that as of July 2018 companies that are located in CA. can no longer auto renew contracts UNLESS they give the customer written notice of the contract renewal. California statuate Effective: July 1, 2018 West's Ann.Cal.Bus. & Prof.Code § 17602 § 17602. Automatic renewal or continuous service offers; prohibited activities; cancellation mechanism; notice of material change in terms; application of requirements (a) It shall be unlawful for any business that makes an automatic renewal offer or continuous service offer to a consumer in this state to do any of the following: (1) Fail to present the automatic renewal offer terms or continuous service offer terms in a clear and conspicuous manner before the subscription or purchasing agreement is fulfilled and in visual proximity, or in the case of an offer conveyed by voice, in temporal proximity, to the request for consent to the offer. If the offer also includes a free gift or trial, the offer shall include a clear and conspicuous explanation of the price that will be charged after the trial ends or the manner in which the subscription or purchasing agreement pricing will change upon conclusion of the trial. (2) Charge the consumer's credit or debit card, or the consumer's account with a third party, for an automatic renewal or continuous service without first obtaining the consumer's affirmative consent to the agreement containing the automatic renewal offer terms or continuous service offer terms, including the terms of an automatic renewal offer or continuous service offer that is made at a promotional or discounted price for a limited period of time. (3) Fail to provide an acknowledgment that includes the automatic renewal offer terms or continuous service offer terms, cancellation policy, and information regarding how to cancel in a manner that is capable of being retained by the consumer. If the automatic renewal offer or continuous service offer includes a free gift or trial, the business shall also disclose in the acknowledgment how to cancel, and allow the consumer to cancel, the automatic renewal or continuous service before the consumer pays for the goods or services. (b) A business that makes an automatic renewal offer or continuous service offer shall provide a toll-free telephone number, electronic mail address, a postal address if the seller directly bills the consumer, or it shall provide another cost-effective, timely, and easy-to-use mechanism for cancellation that shall be described in the acknowledgment specified in paragraph (3) of subdivision (a). (c) In addition to the requirements of subdivision (b), a consumer who accepts an automatic renewal or continuous service offer online shall be allowed to terminate the automatic renewal or continuous service exclusively online, which may include a termination email formatted and provided by the business that a consumer can send to the business without additional information. (d) In the case of a material change in the terms of the automatic renewal or continuous service that has been accepted by a consumer in this state, the business shall provide the consumer with a clear and conspicuous notice of the material change and provide information regarding how to cancel in a manner that is capable of being retained by the consumer. (e) The requirements of this article shall apply only prior to the completion of the initial order for the automatic renewal or continuous service, except as follows: (1) The requirement in paragraph (3) of subdivision (a) may be fulfilled after completion of the initial order. (2) The requirement in subdivision (d) shall be fulfilled prior to implementation of the material change. (f) This section shall become operative on July 1, 2018. After sending the opinion letter and the above statute to #Ring Central customer service, I was informed that they would "waive" the ETF and close my account. I WON!!!!!
I signed up with Ring Central under a year ago. In that time span, I've had four major outages with phone service and calling for technical support has been awful! They use language lay people can't understand, are terrible with follow-up and then continue to try and "fix" the problem after the issue is resolved. An average phone call to tech support takes me 1-2 hours and I am often incredibly frustrated by their lack of ability to clarify or explain the questions they ask. Most recently, they lost my case file and didn't record any notes and I've had to start over from scratch. I have to assign stars so I've given them one because at least they have an app I can put on my cell phone to use when I'm out of office. If you're a small business, sole proprietorship, or non-profit organization without any technical support, DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY. They are impossible to work with!
