I have been a big fan of Vonage and a user for about a year. But I will be pulling the plug on my Vonage account shortly.

Why? Well, glad you asked.

I have always said in this forum that Vonage is a great deal, if it works for you. If it doesn't work, DON'T TRY TO MAKE IT WORK. You'll just spend a lot of time and effort and get frustrated. Just pull the plug and move on.

I had Vonage in Virginia though my Cox cable modem. It worked very well from the get-go.

I recently moved and now spend half my time in New York and half in Florida.

I kept my Vonage number as it was very handy not to have to change my phone number for my personal or business contacts.

Supposedly, you can take your Vonage box with you and plug it into any network and get phone service.

However, where I live in NY does not have broadband service - no DSL, no Cable Modem - so no Vonage. I am spending a fortune on a satellite uplink through Hughes/Direcway.

BTW, I tried the Vonage box on the satellite modem. It actually worked, but the voice was delayed due to the 22,000 mile round-trip to the geostationary satellite and back, and while the downstream voice was clear, the upstream was garbled. I was amazed it worked at all, frankly. An interesting experiment!

I figured I would keep Vonage for a while longer, as I was still getting calls forwarded to my land line, and perhaps I could use it in Florida (where I have cable modem).

In the meantime, I kept using the call forwarding feature to my landline and cell phone.

UNFORNTUNATELY, call forwarding is one of those "flakey" features of Vonage that does not always work all the time. Many callers complained of getting busy signals instead of VoiceMail, or not getting connected at all.

When forwarding to my cell phone, the service does very bizarre things indeed. But it worked, sort of, for about a month or so to my cell phone.

However, last week, I suddenly stopped getting calls altogether. My friend e-mailed me and said he was getting busy signals or recordings (the number you have dialed did not go through, etc.).

I spend an hour on the phone with India this morning, but as you already know, Vonage customer service is worthless. I don't know why I bothered to even try. Like I have always said, if Vonage works, great! If not, just cancel the service, because you are NOT going to "make" it work for you.

By disabling call forwarding and setting voice mail to "instant" my callers can now at least get my VoiceMail message.

I have changed my voicemail message to advise callers of my new cell phone number. Vonage is history for me.

The Cable guy is here today in Florida to install my cable modem. But I won't be hooking a Vonage box to it as I planned.

Instead, I am cancelling the landline in New York and my Vonage account, and relying on my cell phone.

$24.99 a month seems like a good deal, but that buys a lot of cell time. And with the land line in New York, I was spending about $100 a month on land lines.

It makes more sense for me to just use the cell phone. Besides, I spend very little time in any one place.

If you are in one location all the time, and have good cable modem service, Vonage can be a good deal. If you have multiple phone lines, a Vonage line can be a good second or third phone line (it plugged right into my phone system at my office with no troubles).

But if you are relying on it for a primary phone line, expect to get some dropped calls and some complaints from your callers about busy signals, etc. I do not endorse it as robust enough for primary use.

Also, I would not recommend it to friends and family, as it can be unworkable for some people, and it is not very predictable as to who it will work for and who it will not work for. So I hesitate to recommend it, as I do not want to be blamed if it does not work.

In addition, you should be a first class tech geek to get Vonage. If you have trouble changing a light bulb, Vonage is not for you.

And just don't expect any of the "features" like call forwarding to work with any reliability. They are flakey. Period.

I suspect that many of the problems with Vonage may be due to SABATOGE by Union telco employees (and/or their employers) who are figuring out ways to make connections bewteen the land lines and Vonage just unreliable enough to make it a hassle, but not so blatent as to be caught.

Sounds paranoid? Well, ask yourself why JAVA works so slowly on WINDOWS platforms. Unfortunately, this sort of corporate "spoofing" is becoming the norm, not the exception to the rule.

Goodbye Vonage. It was a good deal while it lasted!

and good luck!
