Every Grasshopper plan comes with one toll-free or local number, unlimited extensions, and a slew of standard features. These features include:

  • Call forwarding allows you to route calls from a single phone number to your cell phone
  • Unlimited call handling means you’ll never miss an important call
  • Free conference calling included on all plans
  • Online account management allows you to make changes to your account on the go
  • Voicemail-to-email: transfers voicemails into mp3 files and sends them to your email. It also includes a text transcription of the voicemail
  • Fax-to-email: transfers faxes into PDF files in your email, so you can read them on the go

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.

Grasshopper works extremely well for our company of 6 people. It's low cost and has all the features we need. As we have scaled (although still small) it is really easy to add extra seats and get new users up and running fast.

Low-cost, feature-rich, easy to use, quick setup, scales nicely
