TeleBlend Reviews

TeleBlend is a residential VoIP phone service provider that provides broadband phone coverage in 85% of the United States. As a company, TeleBlend strives to deliver full-featured, low-cost, and plug-and-play service to consumers. Plus, with certain deals, you can even get internet as a part of the bargain.

How does TeleBlend work?

TeleBlend works with your existing broadband internet connection and in conjunction with an included TeleBlend adapter (the "Gizmo") to help you make and receive calls. Here is what you will need for TeleBlend service:

  • An existing broadband internet connection
  • A corded or cordless analog phone
  • A TeleBlend adapter (the "Gizmo")

 

TeleBlend offers a variety of plans. The Unlimited Calling plan is one of the cheapest on the market: only $15.95 a month for unlimited residential calls between the United States, Puerto Rico, and Canada—and without a contract. The Unlimited Annual Plan offers the same features and calling, but requires a contract to lock in the lower price. Their Global Unlimited Plan runs a few dollars more per month but includes unlimited calling to 47 popular countries (it also requires a one-year contract). The Global Limited Plan, in contrast, offers 300 international minutes to 42 countries, but without a contract.

TeleBlend’s most cost-effective option is the High-Speed DSL with Phone Plan. This bundle has an upper price limit of $39.99 a month, significantly cheaper than similar broadband internet services, not to mention the included VoIP telephone service.

Telebend. This past Sunday, my daughter called my cell phone to tell me my home phone was not working.

I rebooted the motem figuring hurricane Matthew may have had something to do with it. But it did not reboot. I sent a message (you can't talk to a human being). A day later I received an email telling me my account had been cancelled. I DID NOT cancel the account. I emailed them back and stated the fact. Didn't hear anything. Sent another message on Wednesday evening asking what was happening with my phone as I had not heard anything and again restated I did not cancel my account. I just checked my email telling me they had reinstated my account until they can determine what happened. I went to close down my email when I noticed an email from my credit card saying there was a charge to my account and the card was not present. It was Teleblend charging me $102.84. I am assuming to reinstate my account. I again emailed them and said I didn't think so. Maybe I will just cancel my account.
At this time there are NONE!
Can't seem to speak to a human being.

My service was down for over a month. When I looked at my account I notices my rate each month went up and up to $34 a month. Then I see them offering new customers a rate of $6.95.<br /> It takes their customer service department a VERY long time to get back to you and they will not directly answer my question regarding my month rate and changing my plan to a better rate.<br /> Too much competition out there for this poor customer service, I am OUT!
Up until recently I have never had an issue with the service
No

Nobody has been able to call me for D A Y S (July 2015) and Teleblend's tech staff obviously is clueless as to how to cure the problem. I can call out but not receive calls. This is not an isolated problem but is screwing up perhaps thousands of Teleblend's customers. I can't make Dr. appointments and customers cannot reach me by phone.<br /> Teleblend is NOT a bargain by any measure. Sometimes it would be better to have a string and two Dixie cups as a length of string. MagicJack and Walmart both offer less expensive alternatives.
It's not QWest
Features offered are nice, however often times they don't work.

I called them on this last year about their cost. Now they are doing it again. I do not trust them..... The automatically increase your bill. They say "read your contract". The contract allows them to charge whatever they want. My phone bill is only $10 but with all the fee's it is $32.24. When I call them on it they say "The fee's are in the contract". I have voip hardware from a previous company (there is no cost to them). I provide my own internet service.
Blocks unwanted numbers, call forward
$32.24 per month cost.
No

Sent Teleblend the goodbye letter today. I have been patient with them to a fault. I have been with Teleblend since day one when they absorbed SUNROCKET, which also went down in a ball of flames. There have been (3) ridiculous rate increases in the last 11 months alone having nothing to do with regulatory govt fees or legislation of any kind, a "service fee". I can only hope they stay in business long enough for me to port my old phone number to the new provider.
Included features, no contract available.
Inexplicable service blackouts that include their email support, all phone numbers, their domain and YOUR PHONE SERVICE! $39.99 cancellation fee! per account, even if you are not under a contract.
No

now very difficult to make any contacts with customer service; past two days, the service is NOT working. Hate to see this voip go down
good clear calls, have had no problems since 2006/7 when I first took the service
in the past two years 2013-2014 there has been no customer services. Prices have gone sky high way more than other voips. yesterday 3/12/2015 the service has gone DEAD and the online acct manager can not be found. Has this company gone the same way as the old Sun Rocket? I think I may have to bail out and claim a credit on my CC for 10 months of undelivered merchandise.
No

HELP ............... does anyone know what happend to Teleblend? Does anyone know how to get my number back? This is terrible to leave people just hanging. My husband has medical issues this is the number his medical team call and now it is just gone.
Originally with Sunrocket, then it transferred to Teleblend. So I am a long time customer.
The past year if you called our house incoming callers would often not hear the phone ring, it would be silient for them. Now on March 12, 2015 our phone does not work at all. I went to www.teleblend.com and it is simply gone, does not exsist, no warning nothing. I have had my phone number for over about 15 years and now I can not receive any phone calls, no warning nothing. What happened? Where did Teleblend go? How do I get my number back?
No

Their service has been worse and worse. I got a referral from a friend who was an existing Teleblend customer. They were supposed to give each of us $25.00 off. They did not. Strike one. I had signed up for a one year plan. Before the one year end, I called them up and asked to sign up for another one year plan. They said no you can't. I had to go with a monthly plan of 23.xx coming out of your credit card. Strike two. This went on for more than a year. Out of blue, they charged my credit card 37.xx for two consecutive months without any explantion. No human soul manning the phone line to give you an answer. Submit a ticket, they give you a boiler plate answer about cost going up and inviting me to sign up for the one year plan. STRIKE THREE. Thanks but no thanks. I promptly ported my number to a wireless pre-paid plan to keep my number and plans what to do next. I had to cancel my credit card to make sure they don't run up any more charges. What a rip-off and disrespect for their customers.
it is reasonably priced for 99.00/year plan
After that first year, Teleblend made you switch to month-to-month plan with your credit card on file to charge you 23.xx/month. Then, all of sudden, they jacked their price up to 37.xx/month. I had to cancel my credit card to get out under them.
No

No customer service to contact. No chat. Right now as i type this, an attempt for customer login to Teleblend results in a web page 'reset'. Go figure. I am signed up for $15.95 service (yes, i am a customer as i type this). However, the taxes on this service including a mysterious broadband access fee was over $20!! What is worse is that there was no advance communication or attempt at explanation that taxes are going to go up. At the end of the day, other VoIP SPs are not charging as much in taxes relative to the service (OVER 100%). If you are considering TELEBLEND, I suggest you take your service to others (like Ooma). Overall, impression is that they are stuck and don't care about existing customers.
Ok service. Highly over priced for the level of service and support
No customer service to speak of Very web portal service for existing customers (But hey the billing portal where they want you to pay always works just fine!)
No
