I rarely write a comment but I want to let everyone who tries to join this know. This service is awful. The price they charge you is way over your expectation and the program is really complicated. Do not please experience this terrible thing. Now, I am trying to find another service…:((( I have to spend another time working it out.
Terrible company that charges you for…
Terrible company that charges you for fictitious phone calls. Be very careful with them as they are dishonest and will charge your account without authorization. I am now dealing with the 3rd consecutive day concerning overages for phone numbers that never even called the phone number. They then further more lied stating I actually accepted these calls.
Do not use this service. They will rip…
Do not use this service. They will rip you off. When I set up my account they gave me a recycled number that must have just been closed that day. I received about 20 calls and voice mails from people looking for the old company that had the number before. Over 50 the first month. But what made it so bad was they charged me for them. There is no one to talk to and when you email them they just kept repeating that it was because of overages from the VM. They would not even acknowledge my emails saying that none of the VM were mine. (I would repeat this in emails over and over again.)

I have been with Evoice for 5 years. I started building my business with their service number in all my advertisement, business cards, website everywhere publicly.
10 days ago, i found out my line doesn’t work, i contacted support and they told me that they gave away my number to a Canadian company that requested it. They then told me to choose a new number…. and that there isn’t anything they can do now.
How amazing! To do business with a company that sells or gives away your number without contacting you. We are done with Evoice, trek with care. Goodluck
DO NOT EVER USE THIS COMPANY!!!!! Sure…
DO NOT EVER USE THIS COMPANY!!!!! Sure you can get a new line in minutes and setup quickly but the customer service will absolutely NEVER answer the phone. You are forced to cancel by phone only so your stuck because they won’t answer unless your getting new service.
They will raise your price plan without notifying you like they did me. Its been a month of me trying to cancel their horrible service. Unfortunately I will have to cancel my credit card and have a new one issued to cancel this shit or get charged month after month for something I don’t want.
Do yourself a favor and NEVER EVER USE EVOICE!!!!! If you do after reading this you deserve everything thats coming to you. I wish I was warned…..
I signed up for their service on the…
I signed up for their service on the 10th on the 18th I get an email saying my account has been closed b/c fraud has been detected. I’m confused b/c I’ve only used the service a handful of times and haven’t done anything fraudulent. I contact support and it takes forever to get a live person on the phone.
The support guy asks if I made a call on the 10th. Duh, of course I did, that’s the day I signed up for the service and wanted to check to make sure it was working an see how clear the calls were. How is making a call the day you get the service considered fraud?! He tells me has the issue resolved and we end the call. 30 minutes later I get the same email again saying my account has been closed because of fraud! I haven’t even used the phone in that time period.
Again I’m back on hold waiting on an incompetent customer service agent to again activate my service. I signed up for this service as a business line but that may have been a bad decision since eVoice can’t seep to keep my account active even though they’ve already taken my money.
I ma regular customer since 6 years. I…
I ma regular customer since 6 years. I called customer service to get a new phone no ported to my account. There was this Samera An indian accent grumpy woman who kept talking, loudly and didn’t even listen to what I have to say. I asked her for a support email and She kept saying the email in the most unprofessional manner. When I asked her to spell out exactly she got irritated and hung up on me.
One of the most un professional experience I have had dealing with Telecom
Customer service answer takes very long…
Customer service answer takes very long time. A new account I just cancelled an account – opened last week! Since I keep calling to fix my company name and address misspelling by them, and when I asked to add my only number I have, I was in shocked that the answer was – eVoice cant add the phone-number which the invoice for !? Also, careful from their hiding fees…as: Regulatory recovery fee + Administrative fee !
NOT RECOMMANDED AT ALL !!!
I bitterly regret starting this…
I bitterly regret starting this service. Now I have discovered how unreliable it is and how terrible / ineffectual the customer service is I wish I could change but I am held ransom by my business phone number – it is printed on my trucks and all of my marketing material so to change my number would be very expensive.
The service constantly doesn’t work and then the customer service never reply to emails, rarely answer the phone and when they do you often get cut off and then have to sit on hold for ages again.
Stay Away from Evoice!!!!!
Used evoice for my business for 2 yrs….
Used evoice for my business for 2 yrs. Everything was going good until it started redirecting me to a strange page appx 7 months ago when I log into my desktop & mobile app: https://www.ucmmail.com/startpage.asp
Evoice can’t tell me why or what this page is, so I canceled my acct.
BE VERY CAREFUL.
