Vonage is an awesome service that allows me to work from home for my office and their support team it great when you need their help. I would recommend Vonage as a VOIP provider. I have been using them for over 2 years and they have always been there for our company. Thanks Vonage for your service.
Vonage Business Verified Reviews & Ratings
When I started my job, my employer was…
When I started my job, my employer was already using Vonage at our 2 office locations. Long story short, our sister office decided to switch to another phone service, but my office continued to use Vonage. That’s when I inherited the monster. Ever since our sister office split off the plan, we have had nothing but unresolved glitches for the past 11 months. In 11 months, I’ve just today received a call from a human at Vonage, and that was only after I informed my Live Chat rep that I was considering switching to another phone provider. Here are the glitches we deal with daily: We have 4 extensions at our office, and sometimes the texts from our clients appear on all of our mobile apps, and sometimes they don’t, which means we sometimes accidentally “ignore”our clients. When I live chatted about this, I was told, “if it isn’t happening right at this moment while we are chatting, there is nothing I can do to help you.” Our outgoing call numbers are not the same number our clients are familiar with. I was told there is no way to resolve this, since we each need our own extension, our outgoing calls are the internal numbers associated with our unique extensions. This means that clients often ignore our calls, because they don’t recognize the number. Finally, when setting up our account Vonage mis-titled our business name, and after several attempts to get it changed, it is still wrong.
We’ve been a Vonage Business Customer…
We’ve been a Vonage Business Customer for 12 years. Up time and quality of service is great. BUT, if you have ANY technical problems you’re SOL. They DO NOT OFFER LIVE TECHNICAL HELP “unless you call new accounts” and “”demand”” help. Simple issue I’m having getting a existing handset to register. Nothing special! Only service they offer is Chat. Chat is low level and they can’t help. On hold again right now with a NEW Customer CSR. Even he can’t get a Tech to answer or three way. It’s 10am CST. The Tech CSR that did call me at my appointment time earlier this morning placed me on hold for 30 min. Then their hold timer timed out. He DID NOT CALL BACK!!! Back on hold with New Customer CSR waiting. As of this note I’ve been working hours to get the issue resolved over two days. The message in my ear says they are too busy and somebody will have to call me back. And to press 1 for call back, only pressing 1 does nothing! Still on hold listening to music… now one hour…
My company went out of business 12…
My company went out of business 12 months into the contract – I called to cancel and was advise I needed to call 30 days before the contract expired. I was not aware the default for auto renewal is typical business practice with Vonage. The customer must elect out of this function.
I had to pay an eleven month early term fee to get out of the contract. They lowered my monthly price to offset the cost of early term fee – can we say shady business practice?
I was floored with the entire cancellation process. You are transferred from dept to dept, place on hold, told to call back if you do not have all your acct info, and no one can lookup your info by name of business.
Horrible company and unethical business practices.
DO NOT sign up with Vonage. We have…
DO NOT sign up with Vonage. We have been trying for a month to cancel our service (found a service of 1/4 the price). Prior to canceling, we tried to add a line. We added a line and immediately realized it didn’t have the services we needed. We canceled 20 min later. The service tech assured us we’d be refunded the charge for the line. We were never refunded. Vonage auto renewed our contract for a year. They have NO record of such a contractual agreement. No one will actually call you back. If they do, they do not have the skills or authority to actually make changes or resolve your issues.
The setup process was next to…
The setup process was next to impossible and took longer than 4 weeks to port a number. Then there is no one you can talk to live about setting up your account. If you have any issues, you have to resolve them through chat and explaining things through chat is a huge waste of time. Something that could be resolved in 5 minutes takes at least an hour or longer. My issue did not get resolved at all.
I just got a Vonage Business account…
I just got a Vonage Business account around 15 days back, and if you beleive they have been charging me but nlt able to setup the account to make even basic calls. How bad can that be .. eeven wazzup you can make calls by just simple signup.
I will strongly recomend to stay away from Vonage Business. Their customer reps seems just have basic trainings and can not help at all.
Waste of money and time
Chat only technical support. It took me…
Chat only technical support. It took me 4 hours via chat to solve a problem that could have been resolved in 5 minutes on the phone. Chat support agents are not well trained and two refused to help after my case had been escalated. They do not prorate bulls after cancelation. Run as fast as you can from this company if you are thinking about a VOIP provider
They have the most horrible customer…
They have the most horrible customer service I have ever encountered! I’m having technical issues and there is no one to help me. In a business, technical issues need to be taken care of ASAP but I’m still being routed from one agent to the next for an hour. Their system is confusing and their agents aren’t that much smarter than me.
Simply horrible ! To get right team it…
Simply horrible ! To get ri8 team it took me to try more than 20 min. called few time as per described number then again and again taking me to same place for chat service. problem is chat service finding is not easy. you cannot reach through website. need to browse different site. I had to call residential team and then found chat link.

Gaston – 7:21 PM
very ri8 end Rev J
Albatross education ltd – 7:24 PM
I found the issue.
The MAC address wasn’t unassigned from another account, therefore it cannot work in your account
I’m rising a case with the provisioning team so they can reassign this MAC adress
they will do it tomorrow within business hours
in the meanwhile, as a workaround, you can use you mobile or desktop application in order to receive and make calls
