I am not usually writing reviews, but the last reviews I read about this company, almost make me go see others without even trying. First, you won't find anything as cheap as their prices, I am actually asking myself how they're making money. Call quality are really good, nothing to say about it. And service is A1++. I don't know why people are complaining about their technical support. Just click on the chat button on top of the page and there is someone with you within seconds (don't know at night or week thought). Plus, I have rarely seen a support chat with agent that knows the system as much as this... My guess is that they are the programmers... So, Cheap, cheap, cheap, good quality and good service. You don't believe me? I have set up my entire system (digital receptionist, sub accounts (Extension), Voicemails, etc.) in one day for around 5$, try it yourself. The longest part was to find myself a Softphone App that works well. I will save you time if you're looking for an android app : Linphone. It's entirely free and open source. I would give them a chance on any other device (mac,windows,ios) as they have an app for each. Don't thank me, thanks VoIP.ms and Linphone.

super cheap, super good service, good quality
Can't think of anything but I haven't used the service for a long time yet.

Horrible service

Have phone support as support with this company is only done through email or a chat system and you never receive a fix for the issue, they only want to point you to a document that is outdated. Offer features that are requited on all business VOIP systems such as Call Park. When a call comes in you cannot park a call so another phone can pick up the call.

I have been using Voip.ms for over 6 years and transitioned to them slowly to ensure that we had no problems. We are now running 12 lines and have had virtually zero down time over the last 24 months. As I am a bit of a tinkerer and tweaker with ATAs, I have had a few minor glitches - mainly self inflicted - which the boys in customer service were ready, willing and able to help cure. I have NEVER had a problem with customer service.It is important to realize that they know THEIR system inside and out - and can often assist with basic info on the ATAs and other client owned equipment - but that is NOT their job. VOIP by itself is a tricky thing to play with. The basic features of VOIP.ms are typically not to hard to master. And they add feature after feature as they continue to develop their products. I had used 2 other VOIP services before deciding on VOIP.ms - and neither came even close to the quality and service that VOIP.ms has provided. I have had contact with probably all their customer service reps to help me through the changes that I have made (and sometimes messed up), and have never had even a mediocre experience. It has always bee FIRST CLASS!

Virtually zero down time. Excellent customer service. Crazy low rates. Continually upgrading their services....
None that I can think of (other then the fact that they bill in $US (we are located in Canada)
Yes

Stay away. Exceedingly poor customer service.

I needed to call a US embassy this week. INTL calls are blocked on all accounts until you submit your ID to their online form. Form says they'll unlock INTL calls within 24 hours. That was Thursday. Still ignored through Wednesday, I had to go into chat but INTL calls were now clearly unlocked to make INTL calls. When I went to make the call, their servers were not configured to allow service. I'm not a novice at SIP clients and following their setup guides. The problem really was they hadn't configured routing correctly on their server. I informed them and they blamed the inbuilt Android SIP client and asked I used Zoiper. Same problem with Zoiper because they hadn't setup the routes in their server. I even sent them a screen recording and screenshots making it all unmistakable the problem was on their end. A day later, without apologizing for not acknowledging the problem was on their end and wasting a bunch of my time, they messaged back "it's possible to enable the routes to your account for the destination you've reported, however, please note that calls to this destination will have a rate of $0.34" That's interesting because their call rate sheet advertised $0.06. I say go ahead and do it because I don't expect them to lose money and I just want it working finally. They promise they've "enabled the routes." Another day later, nope, yet again they failed to actually do it. I inform them. The say they'll fix it. Another day later I try a final time. Nope still not fixed. I sign up for Google Voice which works immediately and just say they handled fixing it exceedingly poor. Their response...not an apology but suggesting I was using the incorrect dial codes which was demonstrably wrong given our correspondence and the screen recording I'd sent them.

Decent Selection of DIDs to Choose From
Obstinate customer service. You'll be pulling your hair out.

It's a bargain basement provider. If that's all you're looking to get, and you manage your expectations, you'll be satisfied until you need support's assistance. Support is responsive, just not constructive. The number porting team (I was porting a number in) was one of the most inept, argumentative, belligerent groups I've dealt with professionally - and I was porting numbers in! Now I'm stuck in an intermediary stage where some of my numbers have been ported but not others, and the support reps keep attributing the intransigence to their own carriers. Just know that voip.ms is nothing more than a reseller. They seemingly have no influence over their carriers and the carriers themselves are bargain basement. If phone service is important to you or business critical - you have no choice but to stay away.

Cheap, basic service. No frills.
The customer and technical support is horrific.
No

I set up a voice.ms account yesterday and configured that account using an Obi202 today. I was running into difficulties with the configuration so-called "customer services" for support and was told that voip.ms does not recommend obi talk and I could not get configuration help other than through the receipt of a pretty technical pdf sheet that they provided a link to. When I asked which devices they do support I was told "Can't recommend a device as I'm not a user or haven't used them all". In short, the voip.ms service agents are so ill-trained they know zippo about the devices that work on the service that employs them. The alternative is that they are instructed to avoid answering. I gave up on that customer service rep (Fred) and sought the help I needed through other online forums, which I found. After configuring the service, I made my first call on the voip.ms line (which is through their Vancouver 2 exchange) to my cellphone, my cellphone indicated the incoming call was from Russia so I placed a support ticket with voip and asked two questions. The first was: What do I need to do to reflect that the call was placed from the Vancouver area, not Russia? The second was: Is voip was a Russian based service? Neither of my questions were answered by the support agent (John) but I did get some lame excuse about why Russia might be shown as the origin of the call. That excuse did not sound plausible. Of the $20 I uploaded to my voip account yesterday, $10.10 was consumed in setting up which includes a month's outgoing calls, which is pretty reasonable. However, a voip service that mistakenly indicates I'm placing calls from Russia will result in so many calls not being answered that the service is not worth having. That, along with the quite derisory quality of customer service I received, and the risk of voip.ms being a Russian based company with whatever potential security issues that might attach to that circumstance, means I'm dropping them today like a hot potato.

Cheap, but not as cheap as they advertise.
Everything else!
No

Been using voip.ms for 5 yrs - no issues other than an the odd re-set of carrier server and then my service is back online. Haven't had service for 2 days now. Voip.ms website for config is "this site can't be reached" on Google search. Has Voip.ms gone under/out of business? How do I get my DID number back from them? Anybody have any thoughts? SOL for the moment

stable, reliable

VoiP.ms was recommended to me by our telephone vendor. Reasonable price - although we had to prepay with a credit card for the service; did what we needed it to do. Had the service for several months when we decided that we didn't need it any longer. We hadn't used up all of the prepaid amount, so I contacted them about cancelling the account and getting a refund. I was informed that the refund couldn't be processed to the credit card, because the payment was "too long ago". They asked for a PayPal address. I explained that I don't have one, and they said that a paper check would have to be issued. I had no problem with that, and we cancelled the DID number. Here we are, 3 months later. I am STILL waiting on my refund check. When I contact them, all I am told is that, it takes time, and that they can't assure an ETA. I've been told multiple times that it has been escalated, but there are no updates. I've been told to wait for them to contact me back. Which they never do. I have had to initiate every communication. I'll also be posting this review on the BBB website.

The service works well, so long as you plan to never, ever, ever, cancel your account.
Customer service completely and totally sucks. They really don't seem to care at all that my account has been cancelled and they owe a refund.
No

I've used www.voip.ms for years with at max a dozen numbers (DIDs). They've done well the vast majority of the time until now. I recently attempted to port out a number. It’s only reasonable that voip.ms use automation as the primary means of fulfilling ports. Computer automation is FAST and I expect 99.9% of ports succeed via automation. In this case, despite having voip.ms provide me the necessary authorization info via email (matched my account records as well) and emailing it to the receiving carrier, it’s been 9 days, hours of frustration, and a dozen unsuccessful attempts. Account Name **** **** Address *** **** **** City **** State ** ZIP Code ***** No pin Account number and BTN- ********** Voip.ms assures me if only the receiving carrier would share the PON (port order number) identifier with them they'd investigate and resolve whatever the hangup is. I find it fishy voip.ms doesn't already see the PON when each port attempt takes place (it seems they're outsourcing that part of their business to another vendor and collaborate poorly) It's equally suspect as to why the receiving carrier doesn't see the PON identifier either. The receiving carrier may outsource as well. When the automation doesn’t succeed, my experience has been that voip.ms shirks assuming ownership for the problem and an effective secondary means to allowing these to succeed. The receiving carrier has been willing to conference call, chat, email chain etc. Especially because the receiving carrier could be communicating with voip.ms the very moment the request is initiated, voip.ms acknowledge and promptly resolve any hitch in the process. Voip.ms has stonewalled such reasonable efforts. It seems rotten a person should have to go so far as to contact the FCC/NPAC. I used to be an evangelist for their service. Now, I'm just desperate to get my numbers released voip.ms

Service used to be great. Hopefully they just need to change their business process regarding port outs.
If porting out doesn't work via their automated system, brace yourself to get voip.ms to make reasonable efforts to resolve the problem.
No

Very happy

I have been using VOIP.MS for over a year. Very stable system, no breakdown. Several configurations possible. Fast and efficient customer service. 9-1-1 works well with the E-911 display.

Many configuration, stable system.
