I have been a customer for around 15 years. This is the best phone service I’ve ever had. I’m especially pleased with their customer service which is easy to reach and always solves any issue quickly. Their plans are flexible and their website lets you easily make changes to your account as well as listen to messages, block unwanted numbers, and a few other useful features.
I have been a customer for over 10 yrs. Everyone connected to Viatalk has been wonderful to deal with. There is a ‘glitch’ once in a while, normally just rebooting the device works it out…otherwise a call to someone at Viatalk…and it is done in no time. The price is certainly right too…
I like the two lines coming in.
I have been a customer for over 10 years. For the past 6 months, I answer the phone and it is blank, nothing. I hang up and call the other person back and they say they can hear me, but I couldn’t hear them. Then, when talking to them, there is an echo and about a 1 second delay. Via Talk Support Manager, Tanya Runyon, tells me 1 second is normal. My telecom friends tell me that is enough time to travel around the globe and is not at all acceptable. I have been submitting tickets for over 6 months. They give me a list of tasks to complete. Thus far, we have put the router in DMZ, I have replaced cables, purchased a new phone, run internet speed test etc.. etc.. and then they clear the ticket without resolving the matter. I resubmit and they want to see all the same stuff. The only thing they haven’t done is replace the telephone adapter (TA).. I have requested they do so multiple times, but NO offer to send a new one. The one I have is over 6 years old…. maybe, just maybe it is outdated. You would think that would be taken into consideration. When I requested some credit now that everyone calls me on my cell phone, they offered $10…. Are you kidding me? I have spent over 40 hours messing around with their requests… STAY AWAY…. They are simply milking a dead business using outdated equipment.
I have used ViaTalk for more than 5 years. There have always been hiccups, but support always resolved them quickly. Starting about a year ago the quality of the calls detonated so much that people could seldom understand what I was saying. ViaTalk tried adjusting the settings but did not fix the problem. A new adapter was sent and that appeared to fix the problem for a couple of months but once again no one can understand what I am saying because the service breaks up so much.
Over $300 a year! And it was less than 10 minutes to set up!
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.
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, otherwise explore alternatives. My total bill is less than $15.75 per month. Needed some assistance setting up.
