True customer service is nonexistent for evoice. Two years ago they sold us on the service with their mobile app as the feature to have. For six months they were great. Then service began to deteriorate. In the last week the app has been down three times during our work week. Their response? Thanks for letting us know. Duhhhh. They outsourced the first level tech support and assuming they speak unaccented English the only fix they offer is delete and reinstall the app. If that doesn’t work they transfer you to California. That is all they suggest there as well … delete and reinstall app. First tier … delete and reinstall app. Second tier customer support, assuming they call you back, did you try deleting and reinstally the app? Helloooo?!!!!!!! It isn’t our phones, phone service, internet connection, etc. it is your useless app. We are paying for service we are not receiving!
Impossible to get them on the phone….
Impossible to get them on the phone. Wait times of up to 2 hours common. I called today and they told me to call back on Monday !? Also many times the phone lines don’t work people call and get a busy signal. Do not depend on Evoice if you run a business.
BEWARE!!!! Evoice has been scamming…
BEWARE!!!! Evoice has been scamming us!!! They charged us for over two years after cancelling!!! You cant cancel service online, and they don’t respond to billing enquiries by email (no written records, only by phone = scam.) We contested. They hang up on us. To be clear, and if in doubt, that service was NEVER USED. They knew it, but still did not want to reverse the charges. I wonder how many people got scammed. Would give 0 stars.
Do not use this service. They have…
Do not use this service. They have taken close to $200 from me for a service that I have NEVER used and NEVER signed up for. I believe they are conning people, not sure how or why but they sure got me somehow. Only return a very small portion of my money but they charged me for things I did not even use.
They refuse to cancel the service. I…
They refuse to cancel the service. I will need to block them at my bank. I have tried the following:
– Attempted to find a close option on their web portal (failed)
– Requested closure via their web portal (failed)
– Requested closure via web chat (failed)
– Requested closure via their phone number. Their representative put me on hold for 10 min and then told me that my US number is not a US number.
Do not recommend this company…
Do not recommend this company. Been with them for over 10 years and we noticed that they been charging secret fees and late charges when we are not late. Recommend finding another company.
These people are idiots try to pay…
These people are idiots try to pay my bill the have my email, could not remember my old phone number so they said I did not pass the security, just wanted to pay my bill. There tons of other companies.
Plus once they saw my review they closed my account without any notice, it’s clear this company doesn’t give a shit about their clients. Then I contacted the sales department and they ask me if I wanted to register again with that company. WHAT A JOKE.
So I switched from Google Voice to…
So I switched from Google Voice to eVoice and boy was that a mistake. Their apps barely work, they don’t notify you on your phone, they don’t auto correct your spelling and they constantly crash. There website is outdated and it looks like it uses Java. Their customer service reps are Indian and barely speak english. It was just very difficult to deal with them.
So I signed up for Ring Central and had my number ported over. of course eVoice kept denying the transfer until I paid them $40 to let the number go.
Ring Central is amazing so far!!
WARNING evoice is a horrible irresponsible company and corporate citizen. They sell their service as a support of small business with call answering and routing needs. I signed up for the service was given a number which I used on various forms of printing and advertising. 10 days after signing up for evoice my number was disconnected with no notice to me. The notice came by way of no calls for my business services. I called my number to check its status and found it had been disconnected for more than 24 hours. evoices explanation was “their carrier detected fraud” related to my number???????? There is NO FRAUD related to my business. They refused to restart my account unless I faxed them a from and back copy of my credit card.That is FRAUD! DO NOT USE EVOICE
