I chose VirtualPBX. I liked their webpage interface. Also, the plans that they offered were more simplistic and catered to my needs. The other ones were a little more trickier to navigate. I got more bang for my buck with VirtualPBX. Plus, they're fast. The execution was outstanding.

I have updated my review to three stars because they were able to resolve the billing issue and I generally have had a good experience for 8 years. However, such an egregious billing update with no discussion / options listed deserves bad review. Decent product, does what we wanted it to do, but very bad experience with pricing policies.

Original review: Aug. 16, 2018

I was a customer for 8 years before the company suddenly increased their prices from roughly $60/month to ~$600/month. We had been using the product simply as a virtual voicemail service and were happy to pay about $750/year for very little. However, this new pricing scheme would amount to making our least important piece of technology (basically a VM spam filter) more expensive than all of our CRM, collaboration tools, and other technology combined. VirtualPBX is terrible... customers BEWARE. Also, if they keep their strong rating here for much longer, I have to believe it is because fully business is happening with the review site because this is simply egregious.

    Hello Jeff ** and/or Billing Department. I just realized that we never received a refund or the refund check that was supposed to be issued once your telephone was sent back. We received confirmation that your office did indeed receive the telephone, was there a problem with the refund? In the beginning they were great until they couldn't solve our problems with our phones so now they won't return any emails or phone calls.

    VirtualPBX response

    Hi Clyde,

    We are truly sorry for this inconvenience. I checked with our billing team and it sounds like they reached out to you to confirm the delivery. At this time we are experiencing a short delay with our refund processing times due to the holiday. Please note that we have not forgotten about you. Sending your refund is our top priority come Monday morning. In the meantime, we appreciate your patience. Please don't hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.

    All the best,

    We have VirtualPBX's virtual receptionist service so when a call comes in, it says that the caller has reached our company and gives the numbers and where they can get punched into. We haven't had any issues with the phones and their customer service is incredible and responds quickly. VirtualPBX has been amazing and I love them.

    It’s been a long time since we’ve had VirtualPBX. It was tied with our fax number and we use it just to get faxes. However, it’s difficult to use once we logged in. It’s an old system and they really need to upgrade it. But the representatives have been helpful and everything seems to be fine.

    We use voicemail, softphone and the ACD queue of VirtualPBX. We do inbound and outbound sales with this, and also for customer assistance. I've had multiple interactions with their team, either through chat or on the telephone and they've always been able to fix whatever issue I've had or walk me through it. But there was one time when I got a foreign person and I was not very happy with that as they didn't understand my question. But other than that I've had great success everytime I call or chat with them through their website. I only would like to be able to use the telephone for text messaging since we have a lot of customers that like to text. I've recommended VirtualPBX for multiple self-employed people since that's what this business is. It makes it easy to not give out my own cell phone number and still use my cell phone to make calls.

    I liked the VirtualPBX website, how easy it was to sign up and their pricing. I used a couple of different business phone systems before but VirtualPBX has done very favorably. I use it for making phone calls and I like the fact that I can get multiple mailboxes through my one phone where with other companies, the mailbox is associated with the actual phone number. With VirtualPBX, I can dial-in my county, tech support or the sales department, get all mailboxes and voicemail through.

    There have been no major problems getting my phones to work with their system, the porting of phone numbers. That was very quick. In the beginning, though there was an issue getting my one phone to work. I wasn’t able to get phone calls in. But the tech support got right on it and was able to fix it. It was done in 15 minutes. The system has been seamless, transparent and everything has been pretty good so far. As a matter of fact, I'm going to spend some time, later on, tonight to get more in-depth into the user interface.

    But I hope they offer a little bit more of the on-hold music and have a little bit better instructions on how to actually use the automated voice system as a message thing like if I had set up an extension which is sales. I figured while going through some of my older virtual phones that I had that in order for anyone to get pauses, you have to actually put in a bunch of commas or periods. That's something that VirtualPBX needs to let people know of because if not, if you type in something, it's just going to be one word right after the other one without any pauses.

    VirtualPBX response

    Hi Omar,

    Right on! We are glad to hear you had a seamless experience with our signup, pricing, and phone system setup.

    In regards to the on-hold music selection, have you considered uploading music? Nevertheless, I'll be sure to pass your feedback along to add additional default music options.

    Lastly, thanks for your suggestions on our text-to-speech option. Unfortunately, with the older system, it sometimes requires the user to insert commas or periods. To completely avoid having this issue arise in the future, I would highly recommend switching to Dash Plans. Dash technology is superior and won't require the same tweaking that vConsole occasionally requires.

    When we switched over to VirtualPBX, we were concerned how often the site goes down and if there are any big issues. But their service doesn't seem to be bad at all. Plus, it has saved us some money. Our phone bill kept on getting higher and higher. My colleague had thought about switching for a number of years but getting us to change is beyond impossible. Phone sales is our thing and changing from what you know could affect your whole business. But in the end, it worked out pretty well.

    I manage the sales team. I like being able to see who's on the phone. If somebody asks for my customer service, I could transfer them over without having to worry if that employee is on the phone. However, we have some issues with the speed of the site. Sometimes, when I log on in the morning to get the other guys on, it takes some time since the website tends to be slow. Another issue is when one picks up the call, it should say, "Call from", and then read the number off. But sometimes, it doesn't do so. Other than those, I would still recommend VirtualPBX to people.

    We were looking for a better phone system and we thought we would try the internet phones. VirtualPBX is a lot easier to use and their customer service is great. When we first got on, I called them a lot, and they were very helpful and the problems were easily resolved. I like the incoming call routing and we use that every day. VirtualPBX made transferring calls easier and now we can leave individual voice messages which we didn't have with our previous provider. We are happy with them and the service that they provide.

    Hi Yolanda,

    Thanks for this review! We are glad to hear that you're happy with our Advanced Call Routing, Custom Greetings and overall ease of the system!

    I had a hardwired PBX system placed for 12-15 years. It was the one on the wall that you bring in and the system shoots to all the phones. It was a very cumbersome system with lines and guys coming in, and transformers and programming going dead. I Googled and Grasshopper and a couple other companies came up, but they seem too commercialized. Then I saw VirtualPBX and I searched the company history, as well as where they’re used. I have about 4 account with VirtualPBX and they are easy to bill and easy to work with, and I can do everything with it. I can use it to go on hold with the sub-mailboxes and it’s very easy to transfer my phone number. When I click online, it’s more user-friendly than the other systems I had. It’s also very easy to set up and go on and use the snap recording.

    VirtualPBX is much more convenient. It’s good for a small business like mine. I do a lot of rental management and VirtualPBX is great as everything forwards like the chats and emails. I can check messages at 11 at night without hearing the phone ring. Customer service is excellent too as I always get a response. I have a cold nail but when I click in the right-hand corner, somebody always pops up and solves my crashed system. VirtualPBX is a great company and I’m very happy with them.

    We were doing a search online for a phone system we could use for the business. We were mainly looking to have an 800 number. We had been in touch with Virtual and a couple of others. We had initially chosen another one earlier on last year but it didn’t work out because we had some particular things where we need to connect while we're overseas. VirtualPBX has been able to do that, so we made the decision to go with them only for that purpose. We use both the cell phones and the computer version, and in our actual office, we have the deaf phone.

    When we started, we had a few issues when trying to get set up with iPhones and Androids. But we got everything done and we've been very appreciative of the support that we received since we came on. Also, we have a couple other unusual situations that having the VoIP capability and being able to use lines over the internet has been beneficial for us in our work. We are really satisfied.

    Hi John,
