It's a complete trap
I was a Vonage customer. Nothing to complain about them only that I paid some fees to disconnect from them. I went to Lingo because of the so called "free" service with W.Europe. But it was not completely free I discovered later because calls on cell phones will cost you more than calling directly from a Verizon plan. Anyway after not being able to transfer my old number I accepted a new number so I kept moving on and paying something like 60 a month. I needed to call overseas so I thought to myself it is better then using International Calling Cards, which by the way force you to consume all the card in one shot, otherwise they eat your minutes till the card gets worthless. But then on the last two months with LINGO I started to get bills of $120. Unbelievable but 1. At this point, the logic of "better than using Calling Cards" fell apart here. Meanwhile I found out that in NY Optimum Online was offering 500 free minutes with any country in the world (now they reduced it to 250) , INCLUDING calls to CELL PHONES overseas. And all of that for 20 bucks. I immediately jumped to Optimum Voice and save myself some money and headaches. Lingo is not a US based company. I told them to look for business in some other parts of the world and forget US with those bills. They are some kind of international scam company that have good trapping marketing and offer you the worst service I ever seen. Try them if you want to prove it on your wallet and let me know if I am wrong. Even today 1 year from my run away from them they still bomb me with junk emails with trapping offers. Btw I did not pay any disconnection fee because, as a sleeping idiot I was their customer for more than one year. They did not asked me to return their phone adapter as well. I guess I have paid that multiple times for them not to care.
