Vonage I made the serious mistake of becoming a member of Vonage Internet Phone Service



I made the serious mistake of becoming a member of Vonage Internet Phone Service 4 months ago, and I wanted to alert my fellow forum members & potential Vonage customers about the horrible experience that I have had with them. I will be canceling my service with them within the next few days, and I will never use Vonage again.

I would NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS recommend Vonage to ANYONE, especially if you are using your phone line for business purposes like I am. AVOID Vonage AT ALL COSTS. There are 5 main problems that I have been experiencing from day #1 with Vonage that they have been unable or unwilling to resolve:

1. Approximately 20% of all voicemails that I receive are completely BLANK, even though the caller has actually left a complete message for me. There's simply no other way for me to explain this, except that when I call in to check my messages, 20% of them are simply blank. Vonage even has an option to email you the voicemails that you receive - and they come in as blank audio attachments. The audio files will actually be the length of the caller's message, but there is no sound. I have literally missed DOZENS upon DOZENS of phone calls because of this. Sometimes I have been lucky enough to have these calls be from people whose numbers have shown up on my caller ID, and I've called them back to ask them what they left on my voicemail. I have called Vonage no fewer than 5 times to discuss this problem with them, and they are always "aware of the problem", attributing it to "overloaded servers". Meanwhile, I have no idea how many business calls I have missed in the meantime. This happens to me several times a DAY!!! The problem has never been fixed in 4 months... Vonage has NEVER called me back (like they have promised) to update me on the issue, and they have NEVER fixed the problem.

If that isn't enough to permanently steer you away from Vonage, there's much more:

2. Of the remaining 80% of voicemails that I do receive, half of them are completely choppy (garbled audio), so I can only partially make out what the caller is saying. Vonage also attributes this to "overloaded servers" and always say that they "fixed the problem a few days ago"... but then it continues to happen. When I call in to check my voicemails, even the woman's computerized voice (that asks you to type in your password) is choppy.

3. My OUTGOING voicemail message plays choppy to callers approximately 15% of the time. Again, Vonage attributes this to the same problem, but will not fix the problem.

4. Even though I have tremendous bandwidth at my office (9 Mbps downstream, 1 kbps upstream), a large number of my calls are either (a) choppy, (b) one party cannot hear the other party, or (c) the call gets disconnected. Vonage has verified that my network is set up perfectly, but attributes these issues to "latency in the Internet". I even swapped out routers with Vonage several times to see if it was their router. Sorry, but this is simply not acceptable.

5. Their customer service is simply horrible. They do not do what they say they are going to do. On the few occassions that I have had the patience to wait 45 minutes to finally talk to someone, they have told me that they would "get back to me" with more information. Nobody in the history of my dealings with Vonage has ever "gotten back to me" like they said they would.

I don't care how much money I will have to pay to return to a normal landline... there is absolutely no replacement for having reliable phone service. And Vonage cannot provide reliable phone service at all.

Sincerely,
Scott
