We were happy with Lingo service since 2005. However, the current customer service from their current parent company (Birch Telecom - since March 2016) is of no value. It is easy to reach the company at their sales line (still the old Lingo organization), but a nightmare to reach customer service (Birch Telecom). We spent several hours on hold today before we were able to reach a customer service representative to cancel our account -- such bad service, we could not even make phone calls any more. We received an automated cancelation confirmation e-mail with information about how to e-mail the company. E-mail messages to [email protected] are rejected -- "You have reached an email address that is not monitored for responses." Additionally, the cancellation e-mail told us they would send a return label (and charge us $9.95 for the label) to return a Lingo adapter. The problem is that we never received a Lingo adapter; we used our own equipment to connect to the service. They also threatened to charge us $75.00 equipment recovery fee for equipment we never received from Lingo. At one time, Lingo was a reliable US company. Now, Lingo is a scam company that should be avoided -- don't even consider trying any of their services -- find a reliable competitor for VoIP phone service.

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 disconnected my service even though I prepaid for 2 more months. They sent me email saying I requested to disconnect service, which is not true. I cannot even contact them since they deleted my account and the only way to contact them is by logging on your account on their website. Ridiculous. If you want to have horrible experience - try VOIPO.

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.
