SEO Reputation Management at its best!

ComVoice does a wonderful job of selling its services and making it seem like they will provide you with excellent service every step of the way.  I found very quickly that this was NOT the case. 

TECHNICAL ISSUES

From day 1 we had issues with call quality and called tech support constantly.  Almost everytime, they immediately would put all the blame on our internet provider (Comcast).  However, we've had Comcast service techs come to our site and many times to ensure that the issue has nothing to do with their end (and got charged for this each time because there was no issue).  Has ComVoice ever sent a tech to our office to see what the problem is?  NO.  They will walk you through a few steps which anyone with any technical skills would do before calling anyway.

CUSTOMER SERVICE

Again, they do a great job of seeming very customer service oriented during the sales process.  And to their credit, my original sales rep is fairly involved when I have issues, he is very polite and seems to care about the problems we are having.  The issue is it takes a very long time to actually get anything accomplished.  And when you get to the tech support you quickly realize that you're talking to someone who doesn't care.  I swear every time I talk to tech support (which is way more often than it should be), I feel like the guy is sitting at home playing video games while talking to me.  Billing department and customer service seem to be outsourced as they have an accent and really don't have answers as to what's going on.

CONTRACTS

This is a huge issue.  They sign you into a 3-year agreement with no way out.  The cancelation fee is to pay out the remainder of your agreement.  From others in the industry I've heard that this is not common.  I've had competitors of theirs tell me they would discount their rates and fees to help pay for cancelation fees, but when I tell them there's no fee and that I have to pay out my entire contract they are very surprised.  The worst part though is that every time you want to make a change to your account (add phones, remove phones) they will make you sign a whole new 3-year agreement!  I mean, what business is so constant that they do not need to add or remove phones for 3 entire years! 

When getting signed up I was assured that getting new phones or subtracting lines was super simple and just a flat rate per line... but when it came down to it and I actually needed to make those changes that was very WORNG.  Those of you that think you can negotiate and that they will understand your situation, they stick to their contracts and will not even think about giving you a break.  Say your business struggles and you want to remove some phones but don't want to renew an agreement because you don't know if you'll even be in business in 3 years?  Too bad, no exceptions.  Basically if you sign up with this company, you are stuck with them for life... GOOD LUCK!

PRICE

I've had competitors call and ask what our needs are and give me quotes for the exact same service and they've been much cheaper.  The problem is, I can't get out of ComVoice's rediculous contract!  There are cheaper options out there with better quality and more reasonable agreements.  Don't even give ComVoice the time of day.

Contract Issue

AUTHOR: bussinessowner - ()

To be fair, I was unaware that there is an ability to get up to a 65% credit towards the cancellation, or early terminination fee.  They will charge 100% of the remaining contract and then upon return of the phones or devices, there is the potential to recieve a 65% credit.

 Here is how it reads in my agreement...

"Disconnect Fee Customer will be charged a disconnect fee of 100% of the remaining contract upon termination of Service for any reason or for convenience by Customer. The disconnect fee becomes due and payable immediately upon termination and will billed directly to Customer’s account. If Customer has multiple extensions, Customer will be charged a disconnect fee of 100% for each extension disconnected. To receive a 65% credit for the disconnect fee, Customer must return the Device(s) undamaged and in original condition within fourteen (14) days of termination as set forth in Section 1.8.  COMVOICE will not credit Customer if the Device(s) is damaged or not in its original condition as received by the Customer or if Customer has otherwise failed to comply fully with the requirements of Section 1.8."
