Make and receive calls using your home phone service anywhere you use a smartphone, know who’s calling your home number. Different from call forwarding, this new functionality allows shared use of a family’s home phone identity. Calls made to the home phone number will now ring on mobile phones at the same time so anyone in the household can immediately take important calls from doctors, children’s schools, home improvement professionals, friends and family. Gives you a second identity on your mobile phone and more control over when, how and where you communicate. HomePhone. Anywhere.

I have been a Vonage customer since 2006!! They are everything they said and more. My service is excellent. No issues. When I have a need to contact their customer service, they have resolved my issue in a professional and courteous manner. Why would you not want Vonage. More than "fair" pricing and steady service.
Rosemary! We’re delighted you took the time to provide your positive experience with Vonage! It is our aim to provide the best products and services for each customer!

Vonage is everything one could want or ask for in a phone company. Price is so fair and helpful in days when money can be a major issue. The service is unbelievable: I can call halfway across the world and the voice on the other end sounds like they were next door, yes this happens. I could call my spiritual Master in India if I chose to, no problem!! They deliver but are very unobtrusive. I receive emails regularly but they are either useful or not. Of course I don't blame them for working to get more customers. I AM SO HAPPY WITH MY VONAGE. RECOMMEND IT EVERY CHANCE I GET. DON'T KNOW WHY EVERYONE DOESN'T USE THEM.
Thank you Mary! We appreciate the time you spent to share your feedback! We’re happy to hear we were able to provide the right product to fulfill your needs.

Vonage will lie to you about EVERYTHING in order to get you to sign up. Will lie about rates, how to pay your bill, etc. etc. And after you sign up and call customer service about problems, they continue to tell you one lie after another. Avoid Vonage like the plague.
Today, I received a call from Vonage customer sales/service (1-866-243-4357) stating they will reduce my monthly bill by 50% and I need to pay an upfront amount of $120. I asked them to sent the information by email. They wanted me to verify my information. I asked them to reveal the information on file which I can verify or send an email to the address on the account. They didn't want to reveal. At that point of time, I disconnected the call. What if Vonage closes business after I make an upfront payment? This is a bad strategy to collect amount to show profits and increase stock price!
My initial experience with Vonage was not encouraging. After filling out the online application I received a message that the system was down and I was required to go through a slow process by phone. Other problems were passwords that did not work and links to forms that were broken. Finally got service that seemed OK until I learned that mobile calls were not getting through. Spent many many hours with support in India getting nowhere.
After service of one day I learned that not only were mobile calls not getting through but ALL incoming calls were failing. Outgoing is OK as are calls routed though temporary virtual number. Support in India passed the buck to an Advanced Support team who do not work on weekends (this was Friday) and they would respond sometime in the 72 hours following their receipt of the ticket on Monday. This meant I could be up to six days without phone service. Vonage has lots of web pages that appear to provide answers to any issue you may have but if there is a significant problem there is no competent person to talk to. Vonage is a great service if it works. If it doesn't, you may be on your own.
We have had many problems with the phone system recently and have recently upgraded to a new service carrier - the only trouble is that we cannot get Vonage to release our main phone number. The first request was made nearly 4 weeks ago. We've had to reschedule with the new provider three times. As a manager and consumer, I am more than disappointed in Vonage and the way they have handled our issues so far. I would not recommend their service to anyone at this time.
I was thrilled when I first inquired about using Vonage for my Business phone provider. Original representative was fantastic. After that the problems started. They couldn't get my existing line ported over and then when they did it was a week premature and I had no phone service for three days because I wasn't ready with the infrastructure in my building because of they switched providers almost a week ahead of schedule. The time leading up to activation was riddled with various unconnected emails. The left hand did not know what the right hand was doing.
After a scramble to get it set up I realized they were double billing me. Which took at least five phone calls to rectify. Needless to say attempting to get on board with this company had a negative impact on my small business. I run a outpatient mental health service and being without phones is unacceptable. Their call center is useless. There were not any scripted responses for their rep to use that matched my problem so they couldn't do anything for me. Ultimately I called my original sales rep back who couldn't do anything for me. I needed to purchase two additional phones and because I had already become a customer and my service was activated 5 days ago I was unable to purchase additional start up phones at the promotional pricing.

Had Vonage for 5 months. First 4 months worked great. Month 5 no dial tone. Spent many hours with Tech support and was even sent a new device. Still doesn't work AND they now want to charge a $90 dollar termination fee. Can't get them to cancel the account without the fee even though technical service has said it won't work. Their advertisements say cancel anytime but nothing about a termination fee. Very very difficult to cancel the account. I would give this service less than one star. Buyer beware!
I have been long time customer of Vonage... Past five days for reason unknown my account is disabled. Reason provided fraud alert. Never have I got to speak with a representative. I tried everyday by calling but in vain. No response. I tried to reach them by Chat and they give the same story everyday that someone will reach me within 24-48 hrs. I Wonder how many hours are there in total of 5 completed days and still have not heard. They send me an email with lies saying they are trying to reach me and I should call back to the number they provide and it goes back to the voice. I am being going in circles to put my account back to normal or cancel it for good. I guess they don't like customers who stay long time with them. Anyone out there please help me with your experience.
I called them to fix the technical issue when I call to India... I don’t know what they are doing there, I can hear they are laughing and chatting each other. They placed my call on hold for more than 5 minutes after the computer recorded answering is done... And I was yelling "hello hello." No response... Could hear the laugh and talk from the other side. Then I hung the call... Again I called but they answer this time. After a 25 minutes call... they said my home phone does have a problem and need to fix it. How come??? I was able to call from my extension phone to India before I purchased the home phone. Feel like Vonage should put some professionals as their technicians. Those people doesn’t know anything...
I am more than 10 years customer. I am happy with service. Hope you start service for Internet also. I also contacted customer service for deal of the year and they helped me. So if you have special deal 9.99 monthly (was once) please contact or email me I will appreciate. Thanks.
Great feedback Ritesh! We genuinely appreciate and value your opinion. We’re glad to hear that you’re happy with our service!
This is the best service for all who want a landline phone, clear as a bell. I have not experienced any statics. Thanks for being there, I am telling others. Being on a low income that's fixed, your service has been a blessing.
Thank you Linda! We appreciate the time you spent to share your feedback! We’re happy to hear we were able to provide the right product at the right price to fulfill your needs.
I just got off of the phone with one of your useless customer service reps. I woke up this morning to find money missing out of my account that you charged me for a service that I cancelled over a month and a half ago. This money was to pay for my car payment. The customer service rep said there is no record of me canceling and that is not my problem. I asked her to check the history of the line to show her that not one call has been made and I don't use the line and that I will not pay for something that I don't use and for something that I asked to be canceled.
Not to mention, that you people have been trying to debit my account 3 or 4 times a week unsuccessfully because I did not have a job and there was no money in my account. You all got lucky this morning because I got my first paycheck. I need my money back and I need to pay my car payment and I need to be able to take my children to school with my car. I will continue writing, calling and doing whatever it takes to get my point across. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Yelp, corporate, I don't care. I have plenty of time today.
I am under no contract. Vonage charged $36.95 this month. This is second day of billing period, I called them and asked to cancel my service and They did. Checked for prorated cancellation, but their policy doesn't support pro rated. They charge for entire month. When I asked to return the deducted money, the service people asked me to hold on line and after few seconds they disconnected me. Called again and this time a new agent. Explained everything. The service person repeated the same. She asked me to hold for a min and within seconds she disconnected me. Vonage should learn how to respect its customers.
Had problem with phones, called customer service and head for 25 minutes. They had me do several test so they could document the exact problem for the tech people, said he had more than enough examples for them and someone will get back a hold of me. I waited a week and no one called. Tried to use online chat (that was a joke). Called back and held for 30 minutes and was told they had to have more examples of the problem so we did a bunch more test calls and we told any that someone would get a hold of me.
Waited another week and no call so I tried again and after another 20 minute wait I gave the person (that did not speak very good English) the case number and he wanted all my info and what the problem was. I told him that I was told that the case number would tell him everything he needed. He wanted to do more test. I told him if you can figure out what the problem is with all the test you have run by now that you won't by running them a 3 time. I told him that this is the worst customer service that I have ever seen and I told think Vonage has a clue what they are doing and I will be going somewhere else for my IP phones
I have been a Vonage customer for years and this is the time I have a problem and they don't want to help. My wife and I have been using the extension while in another country and sometimes at home in Atlanta. Well, this year we have been charged by AT&T for those calls, nor data, but for direct calls, even though we have been making these calls using the extension. I called Vonage CS and they said those calls show as been made using the app with wifi. However, AT&T said the phone registered those calls as direct. I noticed when using the extension this time, it takes you to another number and I think this is the problem. Anyway, the extension is not working and Vonage is not taking any responsibility.
For someone like me who has yet to get a cell phone (!) and really doesn't use my land line phone that much, your service is perfect. It's been years now since I've signed up and can't remember and having any difficulties or problems. Thank you!
I am happy with the final outcome of the issue although it did take longer than I think it should have and is not what I originally was offered to sign up for Vonage service. That said, I am very pleased with the actual service I receive, always works, very clear and great options.
When I signed up part of the deal was a free set of cordless phones. I did not receive the phones. I contacted them several times. The first time I was told I should have received the phones and that they would reorder the phones for me. The second time I was told the phones had been ordered and I should receive them soon. I never received the phones. I called them a third time and was told that the phones were never ordered and there was nothing they could or would do. Vonage is a dishonest company. They make false advertisements and lie to customers.
I've used this app for a while now. Calling the US usually works the rest of the countries is a mess, people tell me that they can't hear me properly and I end up using my regular phone and paying the fees. When trying to contact their service department I was referred from one place to another and in the end they ended up giving me a number to call (such an irony, I don't want to call 'cause they won't hear me).
All of my international calls to the same place have always had issues with sound quality or not able to adjust the volume sufficiently for the recipient to hear the conversation without me yelling. The second issue is being barraged by calls not for me. Obviously, someone else had the number and now calls are coming through to me for another person... very annoying!!
We had issues with our phone cutting out. After running a test we found out that we needed to have our internet provider come change some things with our service. After doing this we have not had any issues with our phone. The Vonage rep was polite, professional, and interested in solving our problems when we talked with her on the phone. We are happy with our results.
Thank you for your review! We're thrilled that the issue was resolved and that you've been happy with your service.
Very pleased. No problems. Would recommend to a friend. Phone is clear and strong. Pricing is excellent and fits my budget very well. I am very pleased thus far with your service. I have no complaints thus far.
Thank you for your feedback! We really appreciate your review and are pleased that you're getting good use out of your Vonage service.
Everything it is ok. And I have a very quality of service and communication. Particularly, when I am able to contact foreign and local friends and family members, and with them I'm speaking daily or every week. I'm also feel anxious and worried when there is any world incident and Vonage let me call immediately any place in the world to make provide me relief.
We really appreciate you taking the time to review Vonage so favorably. We're so glad to hear that you're able to take advantage of the service whenever, and however you need it.
People say I am cutting out and they have trouble hearing me. However, I believe it’s the fault of my internet service and not your fault. I put up with it because of the price. I can recommend your service that has good internet, but I live in the mountains so wouldn’t necessarily recommend it up here.
I am very happy with Vonage. However, I would like to have the flexibility to block 100 or more numbers. I am getting too many robocalls. If I had that, I wouldn't ask for anything else at this point.
Wonderful feedback Jerome! We truly appreciate and value your opinion. We’re glad to hear that you’re happy with our service and will take your recommendation for increasing our selective call block amount into consideration!
I am very satisfied with the service. I enjoy using Vonage all the time. My family also enjoys the system. I highly recommend this service to every body worldwide. It is a very good and prompt way to communicate with friends and family.
Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We appreciate you taking the time to review Vonage.
Love the service b/c my calls are automatically transferred to my cell when I’m not available. I’m also able to block unwanted calls and voicemails are transcribed. The only negative is when the weather is storming I lose service briefly and some callers complain that they don’t hear me on the first hello.

Called customer service for help to set up cell phone talked to 3 different people had a hard time understanding first operator English. 2nd person gave me wrong information. Asked 3rd person if I can speak to a supervisor he said supervisor is busy their are having party.
I have been pleased with my service and the cost and have recommended Vonage for telephone use. Customer service have been polite, knowledgeable, patient and timely in their response to my concerns. I will continue to recommend your service. Keep up the good work.
Great feedback Harriette! We appreciate and value your opinion very much. We’re glad to hear that you’re happy with our service as well as our hard working customer care team!
I've had Vonage for over a year now, and the service has been great. I've had to call customer service only a few times and both agents were very helpful when I called. The only thing they could've done better, was send me an email when my rate was going to change, but once speaking to the rep they have me an account credit and changed my rate plan.
Belinda! We’re delighted you took the time to provide your positive experience with Vonage! We also appreciate your feedback regarding our notification emails, we will definitely take it in to consideration to help make our customer experience even better!
I always received great customer services from reps. They seem to know their stuff. I am very happy with my service, I even order additional lines. They explain to me in details the process. When I order another line, they told me the cost, when I getting bill plus when I should receive packaged.
Great feedback David! We genuinely appreciate and value your opinion. We’re glad to hear that you’re happy with our service!
Read the small print. We had phone service with Vonage for eight years and we're on the annual prepayment plan. Each year the costs increased, not much, just enough to annoy. This year we found that if we “bundled” with our existing cable and internet service that the phone service was free. We had prepaid ($440) for twelve months on June 13th and canceled our Vonage service on August 21st. On August 22nd, we received a credit from Vonage for 40 cents. When we inquired about the expected nine month refund of $330, we were directed to the “small print” that stated, “If you attempt to opt out of the Annual Prepay Plan more than 45 days after renewal, you will not receive a credit or refund for unused service”. :(
