I had lingo for about a year . I was attracted to their
free W.Europe deal. The voice quality was not great,
but since this was my first voip service I had nothing
to compare it to. Also their software started crashing
about once a week. I finally gave up on them and moved over to Vontage. I'm paying about $5/m more
but their service has never gone down on me and
the voice quality is better although still not up to
the standard of regular land lines. But I'm saving a small fortune on phone bills so I'm a happy camper.

Lingo is not able/willing to resolve a problem with you it entails keeping you on hold forever and then just passing you off to Indian tech support who can only read from a script. I had a problem with my Lingo device for over 6 months and every time I called I received the same run around. They would never replace the device, pass me up to an individual with more authority who could help or return my calls when they had said they would call back. Avoid this service as you are on your own.
There voice quality and features are very decent, though. If it were not for the lack of any customer service that actually meets the description of the title, I would be able to recommend them but having children and an unreliable due to having an UNCARING phone provider is not acceptable.
I have "upgraded" to a new service with Comcast's Digital Voice as my only option for service was going to have to come from another company.

I've had Lingo since early 2004 and it is now my main "land line" phone number. It has been flawless, no downtime at all! The additional phone lines work great and I quit other VoIP services to concentrate on Lingo. I was able to migrate my Qwest phone number within a few days - no problems. Highly Recommended!

Yes

I had a Lingo account as a second line with no long distance. I recently found out that my account was not accepting calls. Lingo had "accidentally" suspended my account. I found that my billing was UP TO DATE. I asked for a credit for a month of service, (25.10) with taxes. The customer service department explained that they could not refund the taxes and regulatory fees... Even though I had paid for them... AND NOT received service for approximately 22 days! Please save yourself the trouble, do not get Lingo (Primus).
