Setup was quick...

Setup was quick and easy. PAP2 Adapter shipped quite fast. Sales rep could have been more helpful with the kind of services offered and not have to look up what is asked. Sound Quality is great since my internet is fast. I've been with this service for about 5 months and when I first signed up I decided to first start with the month-to-month plan and it was great and I'm satisfied with all its offerings. Features are pretty basic, caller ID, voicemail, call waiting etc. The price is great and cheap compared to AT&T's landline phones.

Way cheaper than Verizon and offers free long distance

I had Verizon for my home phone for years, and switched to ViaTalk almost 9 months ago. ViaTalk is way cheaper than Verizon and offers free long distance within the US, unlike Verizon. I recommend this ViaTalk to those on a tight budget. My total bill is less than $15.75 per month.

Needed some assistance setting up.
