I was with Vonage Residential (another VOIP provider) for several years and loved the sound quality and features that came with the service, but the price increased every year. Vonage was becoming as expensive as an AT&T landline. I saw an advertisement for VoIPo promising all these features for a low price - I was very skeptical. I decided to give them a try. I started the transition to VoIPo by sending a signed request to my old service provider (Vonage) for the release of my phone number a month in advance. I had no idea these phone companies required so much time to release a telephone number these days. Once the number was verified and released VoIPo quickly setup the number on their servers. Configuring the VOIP adapter on my end was relatively painless. Once everything was setup I noticed the voice quality with VoIPo was not bad, but not as good as the outstanding voice quality of Vonage. Considering the money I am saving that is a compromise I will make any day. About a month after the transition the voicemail out for over a week. I was not a happy camper. It took a lot of communication with the help desk over several days before issue was finally resolved. One of the more knowledgeable technicians went through all my settings and got things running smoothly. The voice quality seems a little better too. I have been with VoIPo for about a year and half while using Comcast as my ISP. I have not had any issues since the voicemail failure over a year ago. I am pleased with the current level of service and totally delighted with the price. Yes, I have recommended VoIPo to my friends and relatives. I have taken advantage of their 2 year extension sale.

- Good price. - Large feature set
- Bargain basement IP adapters - It takes a few minutes for deleted voicemail to go away

I have now been with them for two years and while they had their issues at the beginning, you simply cannot beat the price for the number of features you get. Ooma and Vonage are no comparison. The support gave me an attitude about using my own VOIP phone that they "do not support" but still gave me the necessary settings to allow my unit to be used with their system. You have to know what and how to use the control panel if you want a successful phone system. Plugging it in and walking away isn't the way to approach this service at all. I thought I would be smart and switch to the Ooma business and I quickly found out that the VOIPO had so many more features available and that if you wanted anything done at Ooma you had to use their equipment that you needed to purchase from them. I immediately switched back and VOIPO gave me no attitude about my F-up. Lesson Learned ---- Good Service!!

Easy set-up with direct contact to customer service. Easy to manage control panel
Once and a while the service is unavailable but that has been only twice in two years -- same as ANY big VOIP company would have in a comparison

Very unreliable company

System was down again.(
I took their Customer service rep (his name is Ray) 20 minutes on the phone
to admit there is a major outage.
Ray had no idea how long it will take to fix.
When asked to talk to a supervisor he told me nobody is available
I'm going to look for a different company.

Every time they need to adjust their server and they don't test - they ask
me to have friends that use different provider to test

If all you want are headaches, then this company will deliver that. VOIPO
does not care about customer service. The customer service agents are rude
and will lie to you, just to get you off the phone. They will always state
that the problem is yours and then fix the problem later on, doing the work
on their end. I have read that Timothy Dick (the owner), cares about the
customers, but this is not reflected at all in the attitude of the customer
service department. Not so surprisingly, the price that they advertise is not
the price that you will pay. The absolute minimum with a 2 year contract,
paying the whole amount in advance, is $7.71/ month. They also do not have
the same high rating among they reviews as the other companies which actually
charge less per month. It also appears that being honest with customers is
not very important. If you do get their service and need to transfer to
another company, be aware of the problems and difficulty your will have.
VOIPO has kept customer phone numbers and forced the customer to pay for
another month before they were willing to transfer the number. The claim it
is part of their fine print.

Service works 80 percent of the time.
Service does not work 20 percent of the time.

VOIPO.I have used this service for over six months and find it a great value.
My cost of $7 to $9 a month is well worth it. I added two years for $185,
compared to the $60 - $70 a month I was paying Verizon. The caller ID seems
very primitive, it is only accurate about 25% of the time. The site has many
option, I have easily blocked phony Microsoft,Credit Card,etc calls. They
need to add a manual that describes and shows how to uses the various
options.The sound quality can sometimes be spotty although I am not sure if
it is the IP service or my 15 year old Panasonic cordless system. With all
the cell phones in the family the landline wasn't needed, but we have had the
number for 35 years and many old friends and family still contact us on it.

I signed up for the service a few weeks ago for my own house. I got the
adapter in the mail but decided I did not want to set it up yet because I
also figured this would be a good service for my parents. I am going there
for thanksgiving and my only chance to get it setup for them. I called voipo
and they said it was not possible to transfer the adapter to another account.
I asked if I could sign them up for their own account and then pay extra to
have it shipped with two day shipping. They said there was no way to do
this. Have they ever heard of driving to a post office and request priority

I heard in other reviews how the owner, Tim, was so customer centric and
willing to really help its customers. So much for that. Not only am I going
to go elsewhere for my parents account, but I am going to cancel my newly
opened account and get a refund. They definitely do not seem like a company
that caters to its paying customers.

Inexpensive and feature list looks nice.
People on phone in customer service show no desire to help. They have not figured a way in which they can get an adapter shipped via priority.

In February 2016, we decided to switch to Voipo from our previous
voice-over-ip company of 5 years for VOIPO's competitive price. We didn't
think much of it since we treated that number as a backup landline phone and
rarely used it anyways.
Our first trouble was that after a few days of waiting, we found out that the
number porting was disapproved and further action was required. What??? The
reason, according to Voipo, was that our previous company would not release
it. ( But really?? I should have noticed at that time Voipo had a tendency to
blame others for wrongdoing.) Then next few days, a few back and forth
message exchanges and more documentation ( with zero help of a real human at
Voipo by the way, more a DIY style navigation), finally the number was
ported, much longer than I ever thought. This lengthy process should have
been a warning sign for me to stay away from Voipo. Keep in mind this porting
drama happened AFTER I paid for a two year contract, and all of a sudden not
sure whether the porting would eventually get through or we would lose the
number of many years. Before that, I had always assumed number porting was a
breeze in the process of switching providers. When the time came we finally
plugged in the Voipo adapter, we noticed something odd, that was, one phone
jack on Voipo adapter was dead, and the remaining working one had a high
static background noise, At that time, I told my wife Voipo must have blocked
one of them and allowed only one to work. I didn't assume that could be a
detective equipment mainly because that had never happen with other companies
we were with. Since this was a backup number we only used occasionally, we
simply tolerated the background statics of that working line. That's our
second mistake. Little did we know later on Voipo would blame us for that
first adapter, while it was a defective unit upon its arrival. Thinking back,
we were tired from chasing down the number porting process and just wanted
some peace. Fast forward another two months, one day in April 2016, my wife
decided to use that now VOIPO number to make a call, and the statics was so
incredible, that makes a conversation impossible. I contacted Voipo. After a
few days of message exchanges and self troubleshooting attempts based on
their instructions, they finally agreed to send us a new unit. The new unit
worked well, with clear signals on both phone jacks. But again, we should
have noticed that it took quite a bit of convincing for Voipo to take any
action to help their customers out, correcting a mistake that's most likely
their own fault. They blame all on the customers, as if we were criminals who
just loved to cheat.
Rather, we were just happy that finally we had our usable phone back! A
simple joy we assumed and always had with our previous two priders. Well, not
so fast! Fast-forward another 4 months, in August 2016, we accidentally
noticed ( again, we rarely used that phone) that there was zero signal from
that phone line. When did that first happen ? We weren't really sure. It's
not our day-to-day phone. So as an experienced DIYer by this point, I started
the troubleshoot, from the network setting, to power outlet. This took me
precious multiple hours of attempts to rule out every possible causes that's
not adapter related. When I had my prime suspect of the problem, the adapter
again. I realized that I could not fix on my own, I contacted Voipo. Of
course, another long journey of convincing and agony which showcased how
little Voipo thought of customers. In their mind, we were all merely criminal
who would like to scam their company! Each question asked was repeated a
dozen times by different rep and support tech, who didn't bother spend time
reading the written notes and my typed answers. Imagine each time I typed the
same lengthy answers to address the inquiries of a tech or network engineer,
before it was handed out to the next, who asked the same question without
reading what's been asked and done, all clearly typed in the ticket trail? It
ended up a long digital paper trail with repeated questions and answers. So 5
hours later, problem was still unsolved. They sent a ticket suggesting that
I initiated an online help session, in which they navigated my home computer
and network environment remotely. I agreed. Another 3 hours passed, they
finally came to the conclusion that VOIPO adapter was the culprit, something
I had been telling them all along. Guess what, at this point, Voipo put in
words that basically said we were the one who messed up the system - you
damaged it, you paid for it. All yours. They took zero blame. Really? In the
almost past 10 years of time we never had such experience with any other
service providers. How low the ethics bar can a company has? It was the low
cost and the shear numbers of features Voipo offered lured us to switch. We
were speechless to hear Voipo would finger point on us that we broke the 2
units. We have a rather new house with surge protection wired, temperature
and humidity control all year round and even a designated area for the
adapter where no one is nearby. Not to mention our good records in the past
with companies. If any blame has to be placed, I would think it's likely the
quality of Voipo equipment, the adapter they sent us. Stop sending us junk!
Hope this experience of our account will help you with more well rounded
assessment. Don't simply go for the price and features alone! We certainly
regretted our decision and the precious time and efforts that cost us. Now,
by switching it out to another service provider again and abandoning a two
year prepaid contract, we also lost on the money side too. A lesson learned.
Hope you are all careful with your decisions. Buyers be aware.

low price, number of features
always a lengthy trip to get issues addressed. more interests in blaming the customers than fixing the problem for you, even when it isn't your fault.

A lot of people might be wondering why you need to use VOIP instead of a traditional land-line. VOIP has become extremely popular, thanks to Skype, a service that lets you use your computer to talk to your friends over a broadband internet connection. Right now, most TV cable companies and phone companies offer VOIP handset deals. The reason why they are so popular is because in most place, the old phone company had always the monopoly of landlines. Calls between cities in the same country are considered as long distance, and don't even start looking at international long distance calls. The costs are pretty steep. But first of all, what is VOIP? VOIP stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol, a way to talk over the internet.
Most people use VOIP as a bundled phone service through their cable provider. However many people are not aware that many companies provide a better feature set at a cheaper price! One such provider I used to run my business is
They offer many advanced features which many cable companies simply don't offer at a fraction of the price. Here are some examples on how VOIPo makes me more productive everyday:
-If I'm going to be out of the office with just a few keypad entries all my calls can follow me wherever I go.
-Thanks to custom caller ID if someone in my online address book calls me from their cell phone I don't have to guess who the number belongs to.
-Some months I do alot of remote support which has to be billed hourly or flat rate. With the calls logs being conveniently logged in a control panel there is no need to watch a call timer.
-I use a service called YouMail which is voice-mail on steroids; using VOIP's call forwarding along with YouMail all my messages go to one unified mailbox. That is just my preference and VOIPo in itself has voice-mail that works very well.
-Choice of phones! Whether you want to use your existing phone system with the ATA they send you or want to use a softphone client on your PC, MAC, or smartphone devices one can answer calls where it is convenient for them. Personally I use a Cisco 525G2 IP phone on my desk along with an ATA hooked up to a waterproof cordless phone.
-Sick of telemarketers and Robocalls? VOIPo has their own telemarketer block list and integrates with NoMoRobo so no longer will they interrupt your dinner.
What I love the most is their pricing 180.00 for 2 years of phone service. One can pay yearly or even monthly. However most all of my clients have opted to pay for two years in advance at such a great price point.

I have had Voipo for the last 3 years and it just keeps getting better. First it is reasonably priced at around $6/mo for unlimited calling. You even get 60 minutes of international calling each month included with that. Voicemail is emailed to you in wav files. I have also recently begun using a softphone on my iPhone with my Voipo service which allows me to make and receive calls from my home line using my iPhone no matter where I am in the world! Fantastic! The support is CA based and extremely responsive. Open a ticket online or call and they get back to you right away. I was paying over $40/mo to the phone company for worse service. The only downside is that the 411 they provide is automated and you have to listen to an add, but I rarely use it and opt to simply google my phone numbers. Do not hesitate to sign up especially if you are already using a cable company voip service. Also enter 7325230700 into the promo code field and you will get a free month added to your subscription!

The Skinny

First off, VoIPo doesn't want to confuse customers (or potential customers) with complex or meaningless differences between residential and business VoIP services: in the end, VoIPo's offerings are almost exactly the same:

  • Small business and home phone lines both cost $15 for a month-to-month contract or $6.21 a month for a two year-long contract
  • Small business and home phone service both deliver unlimited calls to the US and Canada
  • Small business and home phone service both have 60 included minutes of international calling per month
  • Small business and home phone service both have the same feature set

VoIPo also delivers quality customer service across all of its plans. They provide outlets like a support team, Knowledgebase, and installation guidelines for your VoIP service needs.

Bottom Line

With VoIPo, ordering service and setting up your new VoIP telephone system is easy. Select a new number or port an existing number, plug in the free VoIPo phone adapter to your phones and broadband internet connection, and that's it. VoIPo also has easy-to-understand and easy-to-read terms of service.

Our Two Cents

VoIPo's residential phone service comes with the same features as their business VoIP phone system, meaning that you get 40+ features to help you make the most out of your calling experience. These include Caller ID, Call Waiting, Three Way Calling, and other features that make your phone more functional than ever. Their residential VoIP service also offers subscribers unlimited calling to the U.S. and Canada, PLUS 60 minutes of free international calling a month. This is huge for any residential phone user that infrequently calls other international countries (select countries apply). They also have low international rates, too, if you need additional international calling.

VoIPo also offers customers the option to get a cheaper monthly rate if they sign up for a two year contract. And if for some reason you aren't satisfied with their service, you can cancel within 30 days and return the VoIPo adapter for VoIPo to refund 100% of your service fees.
