More about Grasshopper

Because Grasshopper is a virtualPBX, it only handles incoming calls. Small businesses will need a traditional phone line to handle forwarded and outgoing calls.

Grasshopper doesn't require a contract and promises a 30 day money back guarantee, allowing small businesses to try the service, risk free. Users that want to cancel  need to submit an online support ticket to Grasshopper to start the cancellation process. Once the ticket is received, Grasshopper will make sure the account is closed within 1 business day. Grasshopper runs without hardware, so businesses avoid large up-front investments, too. (You also don't have to return any equipment.)

Grasshopper’s 24/7 live support can be reached at 1-800-279-1455 about any technical issues.  You can also manage your account online to deal with any problems.
