It's your typical VOIP phone system, they have a great android app and do faxing which some companies leave out.
Wish some more complex features were available or more easily accomplished without having to recreate all of my rules.

Voice over Internet isn't always the best. When your internet is down, you are basically SOL in that

It's okay. But I would prefer to go back to Grasshopper, even if phone.com looks nicer and is easier to use.
I think the app is well laid out and easy to use. It's faster and better than Grasshopper
The worst thing about phone.com is that it does not show when someone is calling my phone.com number so calls all show up as normal calls. I am the type of person who does not answer calls I don't know so this is a very annoying thing about phone.com.
It helped us communicate with our customers.
I liked that this software allowed us to make and receive calls as well as set up conference lines for customers.
We had problems with the app crashing mid-call. For awhile it would happen at the same time stamp for every call.
The pricing is fantastic and support has been very helpful
The interface can be a little clunky and challenging to figure.

Nice being able to text or call my clients at any time.
Forwards to my phone and my secretaries phone in the order we choose. Highly customizable. Easy to make changes to scheduled business hours. Has a separate contact list from my device so each device that loads the app with the clients will see who it is on the caller ID (so many other virtual phone systems are missing this feature).
Had to call customer service to configure it properly because it is confusing, but they were nice and walked me through it. Once it is set, it is basically on auto-pilot.

It's nice that you're able to speak to someone although you will be on hold for 40 minutes to then be told you cannot return an overpriced VoIP phone.
The customer service department is inadequate and cannot do anything including accept a return. They prefer to put you on hold to the point you want to hang up.
Christian from Comfort Wizards
I cant say enough great things. We love how it is over the internet so our phone service can go anywhere. When our office may be closed due to the weather, we can turn our phones on and work from home! They give you the options to set up personal voicemails, greetings and auto attendant menus! SEE WHATS UP WITH PHONE.COM!
There is absolutely nothing wrong here. There website system is a little tricky to get used if you're not technically literate, but you get the hang of it.
Chris from Tomodomo
Phone.com works it's that simple. If you need a phone system that gets the job done quietly and reliably, Phone.com will certainly do that. It's affordable, relative to the competition, and can do most things you throw at it.
Although it has improved marginally since I started using it several years ago, the user interface still largely feels stuck in the early 2000s. This can make certain tasks clunky or hard to accomplish if you aren't used to Phone.com's quirks.
A useful customer support phone number that can be directed to multiple customer support reps on a schedule.
- Very reliable call quality and service
- All the core features you're looking for when setting up a customer / business phone line.
- Most functionality is available but it can be very difficult to navigate. They could use a big UX cleanup across most of their website.

Customer service was great, good features and functionality, room for customizations, can keep personal phone number private
The user interface is sometimes clunky, there are months that it's more services that I actually need

Worked well for several years, before they changed their plans. Had good phone support when I set up a number of years ago and hassle free service until this past month.
I received a note stating that "unlimited minutes" didn't really mean that if I looked at the fine print and that I would have to upgrade to a plan that was more than double of what I was paying if I wanted to receive this same level of service I had been receiving for more than two years.
Anna from SYNEK
I like being able to call customers without giving them my cell number. Their app is very easy to use. There are many features available.
It is hard to navigate. Right now I am trying to figure out why my phone calls are no longer being forwarded to our customer support email. I have not messed with the settings at all and I stopped receiving notifications. There are many things I can't figure out how to do on Phone.com
Tiffany from Pet and Home Care
Phone.com is a great tool for a small business. I was able to buy an awesome 800 number from them and have it forwarded to my office phone. I can also set up call schedules, different levels of forwarding, and voicemail- text. Great software and highly recommend. Fair rates too.
I initially really liked phone.com for it's flexibility in creating phone tree queues and custom messages. However, their customer "dashboard" is terrible. When I log in (after getting an error message every time) I finally get to the main website sales page - uh, why doesn't it direct me to my dashboard if I'm already a customer? To send a fax or do anything with the system is NOT clear in the least. The first options displayed should be big buttons to 1.Check messages 2.Send a Fax. But instead the big buttons are to view your bill or make a payment. It's not clear where to go to send a fax which the other main reason I got this account. I am a webdesigner and understand User Interface Design. The system sends an email to tell you if and when the fax goes through which is nice. If it fails for some reason you click the button to resend the fax in the email, however, again, another error message about a redirect loop. And after chatting with customer support they said if the resend button doesn't work I have to start over again from scratch. There is no way to log into the account and see the saved fax and resend it. Strange, especially when the email says it will save the fax for 7 days. So I'm not happy at all with the user interface. Too bad because these issues are so unbelievably simple to fix. Oh well, I'll find something better.
Good custom message creation and phone queue.
Terrible user interface
No way to resend a fax through the dashboard
Lots of error messages when user their preferred browser (Chrome)
50/50 failure rate on faxes so most have to be sent at least a second time.
I've been a VoIP customer for the last 10 years and can't image using anything else. I've used 8x8 and Ooma in the past, but 8x8 is expensive and Ooma isn't really business VoiP. Phone.com was the best choice for my lastest company. They have great prices, excellent support and all the features that I need for my business.
Price, Support, Features, No Extra Charges for Toll-Free, Unlimited Extensions.
Signup was a bit confusing
