Prior to joining Vonage Cloud VOIP phone service I verified with Vonage that my IP 501 Polycom phone would work with their system. Vonage assured me it was a phone that would easily work on their system. I also confirmed with Vonage the following price breakdown: $24.99 Service and $10.00 per month for a phone number fee. Price with tax was supposed to be $42.xx. I found out they charged $54.xx on my card. No explanation available from Vonage to why the difference. As for my phone I was told to call tech support to have it programmed. I called and the tech person was clueless to how to set up this particular phone. He told me to call back and talk to another tech the next day. I called and the next tech tried to figure it out, but no luck. I went through 5 tech people who at the end of the day told me to buy a new phone. So I tried to contact Vonage to cancel the service since the phone they told me would work, didn't actually work with their system. I literally had the service for one day. I requested cancellation and it took 4 business days for Vonage to return my request. They told me they would happily cancel my service, but I am not getting a refund. They flat out don't give refunds I was told by the "Account Management Team". So I never had a phone hooked up to their service, was over charged, didn't get a refund and the features discussed were dishonest. The services I was told I would have for free, are actually additional payment services. Not Free. WORST 4 DAY EXPERIENCE WITH A COMPANY. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY AND LOOK OUT FOR HIDDEN CHARGES.
Extremely LONG wait times to get a hold of someone to fix a problem or answer a question! VERY inconsistent call quality. After one year of trying to make it work, had to switch. Website portal was easy to use; probably the best part.
Totally unreliable. Be ready for hours of phone calls getting everything working right. Lots of glitches. Quality is poor. Customer service is awful. The lady that we had in resolutions was petty and argumentatve. So glad we switched to another carrier.
I was with Jive for over 3 years. I went with them because at the time, it seemed like the best option to setup a couple of different messages/settings for my business. Jive doesn't provide an intuitive system, but it worked okay for awhile. However, for the last year, I've been very sorry I went with Jive because of their system (for some reason, my settings were getting constantly knocked off even though we hadn't made changes). I cancelled my service with Jive in January, and have been consistently charged since then. Eventually, after an incredible amount of communication and followup from me & my staff (and after being treated rudely by Jive more than once), they finally confirmed that they made an internal error. They fixed it months after the fact... and then today, I received another charge. I have serious doubts about this company and think their behind-the-scenes payment and customer care must be in incredible disarray. I've never experienced such a perpetual pain with a company.
