Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

April 26, 2007

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest.

Today in the news we shall explore "Vonage Text", the new service launched by Vonage and then would go to the forum where a member wants information on wireless services. You can further scroll down for the daily Vonage stock price update.

In The News

Vonage Becomes First Major U.S. Service Provider To Offer Voicemail Transcription Service

Vonage has launched the much coveted voicemail transcription services today, thus becoming the first major U.S. service provider to offer this service to its subscribers. Vonage Text, as the service has been named, will prove highly beneficial to customers.

Now Vonage users can transcribe their voicemails automatically to text that will allow them to read their voicemails anytime and anywhere. Vonage subscribers can activate the Vonage Text service in the feature rich online control panel. This new voicemail transcription service of Vonage will be a boon for businesspeople who can receive voicemails in the text format while they are on move. Vonage, which is the most preferred service provider among Voip users, will certainly become a favorite among the traveling business executives and professionals for the convenience offered by its Vonage Text.

The details of Vonage Text are available in the Vonage website. The major benefit of Vonage Text has been described in a statement by the Chairman, Chief Strategist and Interim CEO of Vonage, Jeffrey Citron. "Being able to read voicemails while on the go has been a huge advantage for me, and I am confident our customers will appreciate the newest innovative, time-saving feature to be offered by Vonage," says Citron. With Vonage Text subscribers of Vonage can get their voicemails automatically transcribed and delivered to their mailbox. According to industry sources, it is the way Vonage is celebrating its victory by offering its customers a handy new feature in the form of Vonage Text. Vonage has secured a permanent stay order in the controversial patent litigation Tuesday. According to the PRNewswire, Vonage Text is a series of service and feature offered by Vonage that will improve the lifestyle and convenience of its subscribers and save lot of time.

Vonage Text will make it easy for the subscribers to read, store, search, and respond to their voicemail messages on their phone, laptop or mobile device, anywhere, anytime and in any form. Subscribers can now scan new messages to find the urgent ones and also prioritize their responses. As Citron says, "I don't have to write down important messages -- it's already been done -- and I don't have to strain to hear messages in crowded places like restaurants or airports." Subscribers also have the convenience of searching for specific information within e-mail messages. According to Rich Tehrani, President and Editor-in-Chief of TMCNet, the launching of Vonage's voicemail transcription services was heard few weeks ago at CTIA, the international association for the wireless communications industry.

Tehrani, being one of the users of voicemail transcription services, is also very hopeful that Vonage Text will soon become widely popular among the Voip users in general, and traveling businessmen in particular. "I hope so as this [voicemail transcription] concept has really improved my life", says Tehrani. With voicemail transcription becoming a "killer enhanced service" that many Voip users have been talking about for decades, Vonage Text is surely going to be immensely beneficial for its subscribers. The voicemail transcription service of Vonage is also available on mobile devices.

In The Vonage Voip Forum

Yesterday many responses from other forum members cropped up in a short time as soon as Zak1013 began a new thread titled, "Going from wired router to wireless".

He put up his query as, "I'm currently using the RT31P2 with one computer connected, along with my phone. However, I want to add wireless to my setup, as I'm soon going to have a second laptop, as well as a Wii, that I'd like to have connect to the internet wirelessly. Once I set this up, I'll have the first computer connect wirelessly too. In any event, I've been reading about the various wireless routers w/ VOIP, and it seems that they all pretty much suck, and that I'd be much better off getting either a Wireless Access Point to go behind the RT31P2, or a Wireless Router to go in front of it. My question is, which one works best? Obviously I'd like to have the best possible voice/sound quality on my phone -- will one setup do that better than the other? Thanks for the help."

Roscopco, the forum Evangelist, replied, "I was using the Linksys WRT54 G along with the Motorola V2442, but I switched to a wireless Voip Linksys WRT54GP2, so far no problems." Birdie is also a new member just as ZaK1013. He said, "The Motorola VT2542 has gotten a favorable review from this website: However, I am having a hard time find the device to make the purchase. Vonage won't sell it to me, they tell me to check the local retail stores, but my local retail stores aren't selling it. If you can find this for sale, let me know where you get it. Good luck going wireless." Flattop had some solution in his reply.

He said, "I am using the Motorola SB5120 cable modem and the Motorola VT2542 wireless router. I use both my laptop and desktop wirelessly. I have had the VT2542 for about a month, with no problems. Phone quality is great! My fax line seems to work more consistently. Signal is no problem either. Prior to the VT2542, I was using the Linksys WRTP54G wireless router. With the Linksys WRTP54G, phone quality was great, but the signal seemed to be frequently in and out and I had difficulty sending/receiving faxes on a consistent basis."

Roscopco said, "the motorola isn't available in Canada so that is why I went with the Linksys. My other Linksys was having the problem of losing the wireless connection, but so far so good."

Flattop again replies saying, "I had a hard time getting the Motorola VT2542 as a replacement when I called technical support. I was also told to get it from a retail store, which was not possible. I then called customer service and offered to pay for it instead of getting it as a replacement. The representative gave me the option of paying the difference in cost of the router that I had and the VT2542, which was $20. In this forum, I have read that others had problems getting the VT2542. On the other hand, I read in this forum that some customers had absolutely no problems getting the VT2542. I guess it all depends on the representative you're working with. Perhaps you can try customer service one more time."

Zak1013 thanked the members saying, "I hadn't read about the VT2542, but that one does sound much better than the other options (the WRT54GP2, for instance, has horrendous reviews on amazon). Anyway, I'll try calling up and seeing if I can pay $20 to replace what I have now. That would certainly be easier than buying a whole new router/access point. Thanks all."

Birdie concluded saying, "I took the advise of the Forum and continued to call Vonage Customer Care until someone could help. Finally, today, after 39 minutes on the phone, Vonage is sending me the VT2542. It probably took a dozen different calls, all ending with "go shop your local retail store" before this person actually listened to me and figured out how to send me the device. I paid full price, $99.99, but I'm just happy to have the device being sent to me. Let's just hope that the correct device makes it to me and it works."

Vonage Stock Report

On Wednesday, at the New York Stock Exchange, Vonage stock closed at, $3.32 a share which is a dip of 40 cents (-10.75%) from Tuesday's closing price $3.72 a share. The day's lowest price was $3.27 per share. The total number of shares traded yesterday was 9,384,042.

That's what's hot about Vonage today. Check with us tomorrow for our next edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest.
