The Good:

Cheap Have for a few weeks and like it The porting was done in 3 days.

The Bad:

No call Forward

I cannot really say how good CS is as I have not had to use it. I have been using VOIP since 2006 and pretty much know what to do. I do miss call forward as now I have to give out my cell # as an alternate and add my cell # to my message this also solves the internet down problem. Before if the call was to my home it just rang on my cell also. But for over a $20 a month saving I will live with it. I switched from Vonage as they are getting up there in price.

The Good:

Easy to set up, always works

The Bad:

We use basic talk for our home phone service and have never had any issues whatsoever. Set up was a breeze and we haven't had any issues with dropped calls or poor service. Would recommend them to anyone who wants good, simple, affordable phone service.

The Good:

Price Easy to use

The Bad:

I love to save money and I am saving a bundle with the unlimited domestic calling. I am so happy to not to have to pay for calls to my daughter upstate and my son in Florida. I mean just my in state calls were killing me since my daughter had he first baby we have been talking a lot more and for long periods of time and it really added up. It was very easy to set up and start using and the quality has been good. I would recommend to anyone.

Basic Talk is Terrible

The Bad:

I subscribed to BT in mid December. It is now Jan. 7 and I still have no service. Their customer service, if you can call it that, is useless. The problem is that I want to transfer my present number. BT just can't seem to manage this even though they SAY they offer this service. I just keep getting emails asking for the account # I want to transfer even though I have given it to them several times. They are still scratching their heads over the number transfer. Contacting them to complain is next to impossible. I posted a complaint on their Facebook page and got a lame response. Then they deleted my FB complaint. Steer clear of them. They are either totally incompetent or fraudulent.

Basis Talk Is Awesome (I'd Recommend)

I don't know why people who review it bash it so much! That was one of the things that made me hesitant to get it but I did anyway and I'm so glad I did! Basic Talk is by far one of the best home phone services I've ever had! Cheep, affordable, and reliable! The only 3 flaws I would have to mention is there is no Call Forwarding which isn't too big of a deal for me personally, if you don't already have your own local number to take with you they don't provide you with a local number!, and customer service is all online with no number you can call. I had to contact them once through email and didn't end up responding to the email back from the agent so they ended up calling me and I spoke with someone. That is the best way to get a person I think. Aside from all of that it's great and I have no complaints about it! If you are thinking about purchasing it the best thing to do would be to buy online. They do not charge you for the modem and send it to you with free shipping and only charge you for the first month of service. It's also very easy to do your number transfer that way. For me it only took about 4 days! It saves you a great deal of money! I'd definitely recommend!

Basic Talk is Outstanding

I have had Basic Talk for 6 months and absolutely love it. Set up was a breeze and I have not encountered any problems whatsoever. I love the fact that you can log into your Basic Talk account and listen to your voice mails and see a daily summary of of your incoming and outgoing calls. I love everything about Basic Talk and would recommend it to anyone. It works flawlessly and the price can't be beat
