Horrible. I have been a customer…

Horrible. I have been a customer for 4 years and am searching for alternatives. The service has never changed the whole time. Still no text messages, and voice-mail stores around 20 messages. The have “cancelled” my account after 3 weeks of a late payment on less than $80 with threat to release my numbers and a ridiculous fee to “reactivate”. If the service were better, it might get paid on time. And for a company that works with small business, you would think they would be more lenient with a late payment. Search more, I cannot recommend this to any small company.

Billy C.'s review forPhonebooth

We have been with Phonebooth since …

We have been with Phonebooth since 2011 and wish we could escape. Horrible customer service, no accountability. Sold us on advanced features by the the sales team and that there were new services were to be up an coming – never came to fruition. No advances in technology (in over 5 years). Left us high and dry for the Desktop phone app which was taken out of Beta rather than fully developed (still can download the app within the portal – which does not work and is not supported for over 3 years). Voice to text (only available via email not text messaging) and most of the time is completely inaccurate,. Clients get cut off mid voicemail. Unable to upload voicemail greeting, actually have to have the system to call an outside number even to create a greeting.

Pros: Cheap for small scale business / Expense for more than just a few users.
Cons: Customer Service and No Advances in Technology.

I signed up for their service…

I signed up for their service, it’s down at least 5 to 6 times a month randomly. The worst thing is that when you call customer service they will take notes like a machine and will suggest that a customer service rep will get back within 24 hours. Well that is not true they will not get back to you for many business days, i usually call when over and over and if i am lucky i will get an email from their tech team. In short they have the Worst customer service, the rep you get on phone are just like some answering service who will take notes. If you have a business don’t even think about it, you can’t risk your business if it mainly depends on phone calls. i have already initiated port out and looks like are not cooperating with that either i hope i will not have to contact FFC, lets see

I was looking at changing plans…

I was looking at changing plans I’m currently with Ring Central and I stumbled upon the phonebooth website it is a joke there phone to call them to talk to actual person does not exist their phone number does not work. So I search their website so I can send them an email to let them know that their phone does not work . No email. So I’m starting to wonder if this is a legit company or not because it just blows my mind that a companythat sells phones would have a phone number that does not work. Their is absolutely no way to get a hold of them. If you do not believe me go on their website try to call the phone number and then try looking for an email you will not find it so I would assume the customer service is not very high on their list.

I initially signed up…

I initially signed up 2/20/15 for a startup company to port some #’s and test 2 phones, I have been billed every month for a NON existent service…NOT made 1 phone call, have called in a number of times to get credits back and have been told that will not be an issue, I NOT only have got NO credits they keep charging me and can NOT even get the system up. I have now been disconnected 3 times today 7/9/15 , WHY take my Tel# if you are NOT going to call me back????? GOOD LUCK getting someone to actually help you!!
