Horrible experience it’s been 3 weeks that I ported my number from Vonage and my phone still not working porplerly. Call customer service 6 times and they keep on telling me they will call me next day they are working on it. What type of company is this that they don’t know what to do to fix my phone. Horrible horrible experience. Working on getting another company to transfer my number again.
So far the port of my number has taken 28 days. I just called Lingo Customer Care and was told that the number will be ported on Jan 19, a total of 34 days. When I call, the recorded message says that my call will be transferred to a customer service representative but then the phone hangs up. This morning when I called, I was on the phone for about 5 minutes while they tried to sell me a bunch of stuff so they could transfer my call to another company. They never even asked what I was calling about. I finally hung up and called back. I get an auto response when I send email but I never get an answer to my questions. Given the number of complaints that I have seen on the internet, I'm beginning to think I have made a huge mistake in becoming a customer of Lingo. They don't seem to value their customers.
I was with Vonage Residential (another VOIP provider) for several years and loved the sound quality and features that came with the service, but the price increased every year. Vonage was becoming as expensive as an AT&T landline. I saw an advertisement for VoIPo promising all these features for a low price - I was very skeptical. I decided to give them a try. I started the transition to VoIPo by sending a signed request to my old service provider (Vonage) for the release of my phone number a month in advance. I had no idea these phone companies required so much time to release a telephone number these days. Once the number was verified and released VoIPo quickly setup the number on their servers. Configuring the VOIP adapter on my end was relatively painless. Once everything was setup I noticed the voice quality with VoIPo was not bad, but not as good as the outstanding voice quality of Vonage. Considering the money I am saving that is a compromise I will make any day. About a month after the transition the voicemail out for over a week. I was not a happy camper. It took a lot of communication with the help desk over several days before issue was finally resolved. One of the more knowledgeable technicians went through all my settings and got things running smoothly. The voice quality seems a little better too. I have been with VoIPo for about a year and half while using Comcast as my ISP. I have not had any issues since the voicemail failure over a year ago. I am pleased with the current level of service and totally delighted with the price. Yes, I have recommended VoIPo to my friends and relatives. I have taken advantage of their 2 year extension sale.
I have now been with them for two years and while they had their issues at the beginning, you simply cannot beat the price for the number of features you get. Ooma and Vonage are no comparison. The support gave me an attitude about using my own VOIP phone that they "do not support" but still gave me the necessary settings to allow my unit to be used with their system. You have to know what and how to use the control panel if you want a successful phone system. Plugging it in and walking away isn't the way to approach this service at all. I thought I would be smart and switch to the Ooma business and I quickly found out that the VOIPO had so many more features available and that if you wanted anything done at Ooma you had to use their equipment that you needed to purchase from them. I immediately switched back and VOIPO gave me no attitude about my F-up. Lesson Learned ---- Good Service!!
