You can sign up for a softphone account with Vonage and you think it will all be easy. Once you have the account the fun then starts. They don't tell you that the software will only work on old, unsupported software WinXP, OSX 9.4, essentially only software that's about 10 years old. You only find this out when you try and set up the software and find that it will either not run (OSX) or will not login (Windows). When you call their 'technical support' they reiterate that it will only run on… Read Full ReviewVisit vonage.com

Have a Vonage line, it was working fine, until it just started putting out a busy signal. I have wasted about 3 hours on the phone with Vonage, no one has been able to solve my problem, so I tried to cancel a service that no longer works and they are unable to fix, I was told I would have to pay a cancellation fee for something that doesn't work! I kept trying to explain to the call centre in India that I shouldn't have to pay for a service that does not work and they are unable to fix, which… Read Full ReviewVisit vonage.com

I was a customer of Vonage for over 5 years. I wasn't using the service for several months and decided to cancel. After numerous attempts to sell me a service I wasn't going to use, the "customer service" representative stated that I would not get a refund for the amount that I still had credited to my account. She told me to look at the "contract" for clarification. It's extremely unfortunate that, after being a "loyal" customer (as the representative elegantly stated) for over 5 years, I… Read Full ReviewVisit vonage.com

Gone over to Vonage from a BT landline. I read all the online reviews of Vonage & there are plenty of not so satisfied ones. However, many of these are a few years old & both bandwidth & technology has moved on since. The phone call to order it up was straight forward & pleasant. The box arrived two days later & set up was also straight forward & took approx 20 mins. To be honest, I wasn't actually expecting much at all, these days it seems almost impossible to expect what you "should" get. To… Read Full ReviewVisit vonage.com

On October, 2011 our outgoing calls were blocked by Vonage. We were told the card was declined for payment (which was attempted without prior notice) so the lines have been blocked. Being a 5 year long client having almost 60 lines, Vonage did not have even the slightest of courtesy to call and ask us about it. As Vonage is clearly aware that we are a sales call centre operating with significant number of lines hired through you with enormous number of outgoing calls. Our sales depend on our… Read Full ReviewVisit vonage.com

I've had this for 3 years as a primary contact number for the USA and UK, and it's been entirely excellent the whole time. I've lost connectivity perhaps twice in the two years, but throughout the call quality has been as good as landline. It's easy, cheap and extremely effective… Read Full ReviewVisit vonage.com

Ive had Vonage for 2 months and I have only good things to say about the service. I've never had any real issues, the one time I called customer service, they were helpful and resolved my query in 5min. Otherwise it does what it says on the tin.
Good quality calls, unlimited to the countries in my plan. I would like unlimited mobile calling though please!… Read Full Review

Please don't be fooled by the claims they make. Its not unlimited as advertised its 2000 min in the hidden fine print.
They conned me into buying unlimited service.
The cost is same as many other companies to use vonage you need to pay to get the equipment.

Customer call centre is in the Phillapines. The worst customer service I have experienced. The esculate complaints but do not seem to do anything about it. I have had several complaints regarding number poting in & out, crackling lines, poor call quality, etc. Evertime I call, they tell me that a superviser will call me back as they are busy. NOT ONCE has a superviser called me back.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT PORTING NUMBERS IN OR OUT OF VONAGE IS A NIGHTMARE. THEY WILL TELL YOU THAT IT CAN ABE… Read Full Review

I have been unable to access their website to update my account details for a number of weeks now, Causing my account to be suspended.
The Customer service / techical depts were clearing reading from a script and either were not listening or did not understand my problems.
The sign up process is very good and slick but trying to sort out problems is a real headache. I guess they think its such a small amount of money each month that people will not bother to try and fix things once there is… Read Full Review

I signed up with Vonage a year ago. Fairly pain-free process and trouble free. I was not too impresseed by the call quality at times, but weighted that up against the cheap call costs.
A week ago they inadvertantly disconnected my line?! I was without any comms. It cost me a fortune in mobile costs to talk to the Call Centre that informed me that there is nothing they can do. They NEVER apologised or even remotely admitted that it was their fault. They simply told me that the system does not… Read Full Review

I have been using Vonage since 2007. Initially I experienced a few issues, but you have to remember here is that Vonage uses your broadband connection to route voice calls through. Hence if you have an unreliable broadband connection it will affect your voice calls - breaking up etc. I upgraded my broadband connection from a 2Mb service to a 10Mb service and the only time problems occur is when my broadband connection goes down - this is out of Vonages control and rests with my broadband… Read Full ReviewVisit vonage.com

Unbelievably horrible phone service and customer service. I have never had an experience like the one I had with Vonage's customer service. During the 6 months I used their service, more than half of that time the modem wasn't working, therefore, I would have no phone service for hours at a time. When I finally decided to disconnect from them, they wanted to charge unbelievable fees and stated that they could and would deduct it from my checking account and did not need my authorization… Read Full ReviewVisit vonage.com
