What We Like About eVoice

Simple Approach:

We like their approach of offering 3 basic plans that are very similar except for minutes and extensions. We also like the fact that you get an additional 100 minutes for each extension you add. However their prices are similar if not more than their competitors with fewer features. They cover the main features such as:

  • Toll Free Numbers
  • Virtual Extensions
  • Auto Attendant
  • Call Routing
  • Call Recording
  • Call Transfer
  • Call Screening & Announce
  • VoiceMail
  • Conference Calling
  • Dial by Name Directory

Mobile Apps:

You can access your favorite eVoice features right from your iPhone, Android, or BlackBerry device. Manage your voice messages and make calls from any location. You can access all of the the standard voicemail management tools, as well as following features: caller id(your evoice number is displayed as the number you are calling from), voicemail to text, voicemail search, call existing contacts with your evoice number, and speed dial.

Improved 24/7 US Customer Service:

eVoice now provides 24/7 customer support based out of California and Indiana. They have also worked to improve their BBB rating to a B+. We give them kudo’s for the hard work and improvement in this area.

Added “after hours mode”:

They now have an after hours mode available via advanced call routing.

Canadian Numbers and Service:

They now provide local Canadian numbers as well as service in Canada.

What We Don’t Like About eVoice

Reviews:

eVoice has had some poor customer reviews in the past.

eVoice Review Summary

If you are in that mid-range area where you will use around or just under 1000 minutes a month, and don’t need features such as internet faxing, or queing then you will probably do fine with eVoice. You can now select from plans on the low end with only 300 minutes/2 extensions, to their top plan with 1000 minutes/5 extensions.

    Total scam. The phone number is not the one I requested. When I called to cancel they claimed they couldn’t find the account. Then they wanted me to call back because they couldn’t hear me. Then when I called back they wanted a ton of personal information to cancel. It was only two weeks into the free trial but they still tried to charge me. I had to report them to my credit card company to reverse the charges.

    These people are idiots try to pay my bill the have my email, could not remember my old phone number so they said I did not pass the security, just wanted to pay my bill. There tons of other companies.
    Plus once they saw my review they closed my account without any notice, it’s clear this company doesn’t give a shit about their clients.

    Have filed a suit against eVoice for fraud in refusing to cancel a trial account after several requests. Company is a cut and dry scam, avoid at all costs.

    eVoice is terrible. We have called them numerous times to get help with our account and they could not find our account in their system… we have had our account with them for YEARS. They even said they could not find our account using the phone number that we use their service through! We would LOVE to move our service, but eVoice will not release the number!

    Please don’t sign up with this company. That’s the work company ever. They take my money without authorization. I have a credit card on file, they say that they trying to process a payment and the card was declined. I received an email and I contacted them right away and they charge $10 late for for only a couple hours. When I explained them the situation and I want the refund they encouraged me to close the account.
    They don’t care about customers. They have a very bad customer service. Please don’t sign up with them.

    DO NOT SIGN UP FOR FREE TRIAL. WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER!!
    When I called to cancel my free trial, they required that I verify my credit card information and billing address that I used to sign up online, over the phone, to cancel my free trial. I didn’t want to give that information and they refused to cancel my service without giving them my credit card number and billing address. They also refused to connect me with a supervisor unless I gave them my credit card number and billing address. VERY SKETCHY BUSINESS PRACTICE. I’m going to the bank to cancel my card since that’s the only way I can make sure they don’t charge me.

    This service was advertised at a good price, but when they added up all the extras that should have been standard feature, my bill added up to almost $100 per mo. and while we were still trying the service out, I spent $500. When I called to cancel the service, I could not get any adjustments nor would they credit me any part of the month I prepaid for. I discourage anyone from this service. We have gone with Freshdesk for ticket systems and phone service that is free with the plan and tons of features that is all we need. Evoice was a total upset and waste of our time and money.
