Overall, good service. On rare occasions, I've had to go to someone with more authority when issues are not resolved in a timely manner, or when there is confusion regarding a request, but for the most part, requests and issues are addressed quickly and efficiently. When I have had complaints in the past, management has been more than willing to listen, in the interest of improving the client experience.

Although there's no such thing as a perfect company to do business with, ShoreTel strives to be responsive to customer complaints or suggestions, in the interest of improving service.

After the initial free Premiere service is over (30 days) we started receiving an avalanche of robo calls. We can no longer use our home phone we get so many robo, sales, and scam calls. Ooma wants $120 per year to stop the calls. We are held hostage by Ooma. Stay way from Ooma. Stay far far away.

I have an Ooma Telo with a residential line and an office line. Voice quality is good, and the service has been reliable. However, the customer service is poor. I recently purchased from Ooma a WiFi/Bluetooth adapter to connect my Telo wirelessly. The instructions have a link to click to set up, however the link was broken. I tried the chat service twice but no luck. Then I went to the phone lines. No luck with the first level of customer support and no luck with the second level of support. The third level of customer support was supposed to call back Tuesday. I waited four days but no call back. I called back in. The third level referred me to the fourth level which was supposed to be engineering. After three hours, the third level called back (customers can't speak to engineering). The engineer had solve the problem: my home network name had "spaces" in it!!! What does this indicate? Poor website instructions, poor paper instructions with the product, poorly informed product support at levels one, two, and three, and poor internal communications from engineering. Eric B. Stang, the Ooma CEO, received 2.7 million dollars in total compensation last year. For this level of performance, I'd say he was overpaid by about 2.6 million dollars.
