  • Vonage is fine

    I've had Vonage for 4 months now, and have nothing to complain about. Their service is good. You have to take into account that there are REALLY stupid people out there that does not know how to turn on a computer. Reading some apple store blogs, they are sometimes frustrated with people's "issues", imagine, with the Ipod, which is the dumbest device out there. So, if you have not found major complains, is because it works fine.

  • Here is my Story with Vonage.

    I purchased an Internet Telephone Service from Vonage on 11/2/04, 2004. On 1/26/05, I requested that my existing phone be transferred, at the time I was with MCI, on 03/23/05 the transfer has not been completed in spite of Vonage promptly charged my account for the transfer and 5 faxes with letter of authorizations have been sent. I have requested that my service be terminated as of that date (3/23/2005) and I switched to SBC. On 4/8/05 my phone was not working and upon contacting SBC, they informed me that my number has been switched to Vonage. Given the fact that I do not have a service with Vonage any more and never authorized them to move me from SBC, I called to find a resolution to this problem. After spending 54 minutes on the phone before I got a customer service rep. I informed him of the problem and I was transferred again to another Representative which after checking the account his answer was that i have to contact my carrier (SBC) and ask the to do a win back process. My service was out for 13 days, and I had to go and do my own research to find out who the third party provider is and contact them to return my service to SBC. After my service was restored to SBC, I was contacted by a Customer Service representative from Vonage, trying to win me back (very sad). I have incurred lots of expenses as a result of this and I hope to be able to take legal action against Vonage for all they have caused. I have already filed with the BBB, FCC and the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC); I hope something good comes out of all this.
