A continuation/update of my experience with Lingo. To recap, reception was always awful and sometimes impossible. Every problem except getting paid was unfixable. Their email was turned on and off repeatedly. The contact phone number for both customer service and tech support was turned on and off. I emailed them on December 7 as a final cancellation after repeated emails and calls over 7 months asking them to roll back my account to where I had understood it to be, the basic account. My payment should have been under $20 as advertised. As of my last payment they had me up over $43. To add insult to injury, when I called to confirm that the account was closed and a refund for the remainder of the month would be forth coming, I was told they do not refund anything. I was told that emailing my cancellation was not acceptable to them. So, keep in mind, they only do things officially using a medium that does not allow one to document their actions. In addition, they are mailing me a shipping label, but I was told it definitely will not arrive before January but I would not be billed. We'll see how that turns out. Heads up, they merged with Birch Communications.
They add services for free without asking if you want them, then they start charging for them and won't remove them. Months of calls (including multiple times when they disconnected their customer service number and email) and emails to get them to adjust my account. They never did. They are a Canadian company and they do not participate in the telecom watchdog system in Canada. As one example, one of their excuses for not reducing my account back to the most basic one was that their system was down. Two month of payments were still taken out of my account, but supposedly they couldn't adjust my account. This is on top of years of increasing my account over and over for added benefits I never asked for, nor agreed to have added. Quality of calls was bad to awful. It was never good. It was always bad, then worse and worse. I was remiss in not cancelling them.
I used the Talkatone app while overseas and it works well, similar to the magicJack app. Lets you make up to 60 minutes of free calls to US/Canada landlines per month. Nice while you are traveling.
