3 times in the past 8 months I have been without service. it is impossible to get through to a live person, even on the online chat. half of the time their own business phone numbers don’t work. I believe they are actually a “pyramid scheme”. I was signed up with 2 years still to go and they are constantly reminding me to “re-up” my service. I have had it. please, don’t go with this “company” it is nothing but a hassle
VoIPo Verified Reviews & Ratings
I’m getting ready to renew for my 3rd…
I’m getting ready to renew for my 3rd 2 year stint. I split my phone service about 50/50 between cell and VOIP and like the VOIP phone because my cell service is spotty where I live and the VOIP provides clear unbroken connections. I also like it because 75% of my “Land Line” calls are junk and I pay much less (compared to old Ma Bell) for the phone # that they call on.
Voipo does NOT provide the services…
Voipo does NOT provide the services that I am paid for. I can’t make a call to overseas to a country that is on their list. I opened a ticket and this is the final response.
We apologize for the inconvenience. At this time we do have calling to certain high rate destinations restricted. We do hope to unblock higher rate areas again in the future, but we do not have an eta at this time. xxxx1919243797 and XXXXx1965133720 are currently included in rate areas that are above our current security cap, and will not be able to be dialed at this time.

Why didn’t they disclose this information prior to get my money for 2 years agreement.
Sad and an fair.
Voipo used to be an excellent run VOIP…
Voipo used to be an excellent run VOIP business. I’ve had issues in the past that were responded to and resolved fairly quickly. However, over the last couple of months I’ve noticed a steady degradation of voice quality with steadily increasing line static. Opening a ticket only resulted in a series of technical questions about the adapter, resetting the adapter, voltage and amperage values, what brand of modem/router, and what ISP I have. In the meantime, the static has gotten worse and dialing a number, any number, results in a busy signal. So, no working phone for which I’m all paid up until 2020, or there about. I’d look for a different provider of this service.
Their service is damn good. I stacked up…
Their service is damn good. I stacked up years of their special price so my phone service is practically free. When I had initial hookup problems even the owner of the company helped out.
They tell you not to wire in additional phones, claiming their box is so fragile it can’t support being hooked into household wiring even if you have disconnected it from the phone company.
I recommend them to friends a lot. Occasionally I have to restart their box, but beyond that haven’t had much trouble.
Works with NoMoRobo.com to screen out robocallers, which is a huge plus. I wouldn’t get a service that didn’t work with that!!!!
