Voipo is a great VOIP phone service, I have been well pleased and amazed with this service since switching from AT&T to Voipo a few months ago. Finally a phone service that works for me! It was easy to hook up through my existing house wiring so it works throughout my house and the call quality is as good or better than AT&T. That is what is amazing, I thought I might have to put up with a little less quality but I have not. And the array of features provided by Voipo have simply blown me away.

For a long time I had been wanting to ditch AT&T as my phone provider for the land line phone. I wasn't ready to go all cellular due to the expense and I was tired of the high cost and constant weekly mail from AT&T wanting me to take advantage of their special offers for additional services because I was such a good customer. Finally I decided I had procrastinated long enough and decided to look into VOIP and that's when I found Voipo and I am so glad I did!

I had been paying AT&T over $30 per month for basic service. That was for NO long distance, NO features at all, NO caller ID, NO call waiting, NO call forwarding, NO voice mail and so on. I set a goal to try to get VOIP phone service that would at least cut my bill in half. I was surely surprised when I was able to cut my bill by 75% with Voipo. Yes instead of over $30 per month I was able to secure a plan that amounted to $7.71 per month! And that was including all taxes and everything. Yes I did have to pre-pay for 2 years to get that low price, but I wasn't worried about that, many companies offer discounts for pre-payments, it is just good business sense. Plus they offer a 30 day money back guarantee so I knew that would be long enough to try it out. If you don't want to pre-pay that long there are lesser periods of time and even monthly payment plans, that still offer significant savings.

You might expect for $7.71 per month that it would be a very structured and limited program with just a few minutes a month. Not so! Here is what I got with Voipo:
  • Unlimited calling incoming and outgoing, both local AND long distance anywhere in the USA and Canada!
  • Choose your phone number and area code or port an existing number
  • Caller ID
  • Call Waiting
  • Call Forwarding
  • Do not disturb
  • Voice Mail (from the phone, also view them online and transcribed to your email if you want)
  • Great spam filters, get rid of telemarketers for good
  • Call Blocking, send to voice mail, or give them disconnected message
  • See your entire call history online (incoming and outgoing)
  • Simultaneous ring (have it ring your cell or other phones if you want)
  • And so much more
When I first ordered I did not port my existing number over because since Voipo offers a 30 day money back guarantee I wanted to try it for a while to make sure I was satisfied. I would recommend this procedure for anyone who wants to try it to make sure they are happy with it. So I selected a number in my area code when I placed the order. In a few days the VOIP adapter arrived so I plugged it in my modem and began using it. You simply plug it into your modem with the provided Ethernet cord then plug your router (if you use a router) into the line out port on the VOIP adapter. Then reboot your modem, the VOIP adapter, and your router and I was up and running. So I tested it for a few days and decided I would keep it and then had them port my number from AT&T. Porting the number does take a few days but I was in no hurry. All the procedures and forms are available on the Voipo website so it was pretty straight forward and there were no surprises. Plus they have phone and email support (US based by the way) if you need them.

I like it because I can take the VOIP adaptor when I travel and use my existing number in hotel rooms that have Ethernet connections, you could use it in a vacation home, friends homes, anywhere there is a high speed internet connection you can plug it into! The adapter is about the size of a cell phone but about twice as thick, so it is very small and would be easy to take anywhere.

I liked Voipo so much I am now an affiliate so it you would like to try Voipo and see it it works for you, or just check out the many features, click the link below:

I'm with you...ditched my AT&T land lines last month and went with 8X8 VoIp. Loving, loving, loving the service! When I'm home, my iPhone becomes another cordless phone on the VoIp. When not home, it transfers calls to my iPhone.
