good options
Larger costs, they lie and retaliate in opposition to customers
Not so good

Replace: Shortly after writing the next, it now seems that Callcentric has taken their marketing campaign in opposition to me to even larger ranges of retaliation and stupidity. They apparently blocked the IP deal with my asterisk is at present registering from (that is a simple repair and reveals their stupidity) and adjusted my account password in feeble makes an attempt to lock me out of the companies . This from an organization that simply ported my quantity into the threatened on the telephone to me that my quantity is perhaps left “in limbo”, and I registered legally as native legislation permits.

At this level I might say that they’re NOT in any respect reliable together with your companies.

Within the curiosity of full disclosure, I’ve finished enterprise with Callcentric for MANY years, most likely since their inception. I’ll (or might not??) have wholesaled Mexican routes to them years in the past and undoubtedly purchased lots of their international termination, most likely DIDs and who is aware of what else on the period. I’ve additionally clearly referred MANY PBX clients to them in addition to different VoIP suppliers

Okay right here we go I’ve the entire chain of correspondence to again up what I’m saying and moreover I’ve a picture of their web site at” which says quantity ports are free.

I can totally doc EVERYTHING I say. Callcentric now desires to shut my account in order that the portal info disappears. Too late I have already got the whole lot.

I had a quantity port (it had been my brother’s quantity for about 30 years) that was problematic when attempting to port it to a different supplier. This different supplier had failed after a month and REFUSED to name the quantity I had for a contact at CenturyLink, the shedding provider, who needed to assist with transport (this contact took me weeks to get). So I deserted this supplier in favor of Callcentric.

Be aware that the CallCentric web page signifies that the porting is FREE » As of this writing, the web page nonetheless says the identical factor. At no level was a cost for porting or activating this quantity even talked about aside from the conventional operating prices. I see they cost for activation on NEW DIDs, however I would not assume the identical for quantity porting, particularly since they are saying “free”. This “activation cost” is not actually the difficulty right here anyway. As I level out right here, and I can show it, THEY ARE LIARS.

I submit the port to Callcentric.

I add funds to the callcentic account taking the steadiness to permit a minimum of $4.00 greater than the month-to-month charge.

I’m knowledgeable that he failed

CallCentric REFUSED to contact the quantity (contact at Century Hyperlink) that I had given them in order that the porting went nicely

I write THREE MORE TIMES on a hassle ticket with out ANSWERS

CallCentric doesn’t launch the port of the quantity as I requested in one in all my solutions

Callcentric just a few days later, and after not responding to the difficulty ticket in any respect, wore it anyway (shock) regardless of failing (not unhealthy to this point). 1.95 or so is debited from my steadiness and I see the port appears profitable after directing the DID to a SIP URI

Throughout this time, DID is used and the steadiness drops a greenback or two as a consequence of regular per minute fees.

I get a message from somebody at callcentric attempting to achieve me and depart them a present quantity.

Then he calls me and LIEs to me attempting to contradict what’s documented on the difficulty ticket, as if the timeline is considerably totally different. and that there was one other port request from one other supplier and my quantity would “be left in limbo”

I get upset and sure I used foul language because it threatened the quantity AND LIE in regards to the timeline of occasions and refuse to take heed to me once I speak about my three unanswered hassle ticket responses over just a few days. I am hanging up

He calls again, I swear a bit extra and I inform him to not name me anymore. (I do not wanna hear no extra of her lies)

I am going to the difficulty ticket and make sure that they by no means responded to my three messages, and inform him that I “HATE LIARS” and that he was clearly mendacity and contradicting the timeline of occasions documented within the hassle ticket. incident.

The DID labored for greater than a day, possibly two, and was forwarded to a SIP URI from one other supplier.

All of the sudden, the DID stops working and my brother calls me to let me know…

This man truly went to debit cash from my account in an effort to adverse my account, claiming it was an activation or postage charge, which they have been “unable” to cost as a consequence of ‘a scarcity of funds (which once more is a lie), so the quantity would cease working (paid by the minute). This DID was the one factor on this account and I had a couple of dollars on it by the point I began the port and solely added one other $5 however even with the activation charge it could have been sufficient but it surely’s clear that I ought to have finished extra on that quickly. In the event that they’re taking the adverse rely now, why did not they do it earlier than anyway? (see the lie right here?)

It isn’t the sum of money at subject, it is the retaliatory nature of their actions and the best way they appear to assume it is a approach to do enterprise and inform me my account might be closed one instances the quantity transferred. Clearly, it is their feeble try to preserve me from proving what occurred.

Clearly they are not direct and even the telephone name I obtained from them raised issues that my quantity was one way or the other left in ‘limbo’.

Good riddance I let you know. They’re clearly not the society they as soon as have been.

Callcentric is a superb firm in my expertise and in my view.

I am sorry to listen to about your points, I can solely say that my dealings with Callcentric have all the time been glorious (together with resolving some assist tickets and so forth, a few of them only in the near past).

I can not deal with your entire complaints, however I feel it is price declaring that Callcentric has clearly specified “setup charges” for varied companies.

Many different suppliers even have setup charges (generally referred to as activation charges).

Localphone, for instance, has a free port, however has a $3.00 activation charge.

1-Voip has a free port, however has an activation charge of $14.95.
» sperson=

So quantity porting is clearly a separate subject from setup/activation charges.

Whereas some corporations reminiscent of Callcentric have free porting, GoogleVoice fees $20.00 and Ooma fees $39.99 for inbound ports.


Anyway, I can not remark in your complaints basically (besides to look at that swearing is counterproductive), however so far as fees go, Callcentric shouldn’t be doing something inappropriate or uncommon to my discover.

I hope issues with future ventures might be extra mutually satisfying for you!

CallCentric Superior! Porting numbers away from ANY provider may be problematic

I labored for one of many largest carriers in the US. Typically when clients needed to switch numbers from one other operator to us, we had issues getting it to the port; generally inexplicable issues. So it isn’t all the time so simple as folks make it out to be.

Considered one of my enterprise clients tried to switch a quantity to us from his present provider. The issue lasted greater than six months. Ultimately we obtained a decision, but it surely was extraordinarily problematic. So when the unique poster talks in regards to the varied issues occurring and calls CallCentric a liar nicely I doubt it simply because I do know from working with an operator it isn’t a clear course of in just a few circumstances … some thank God not all are troublesome. However some are positive.

As for CallCentric; I’ve been utilizing them for over TEN years and they’re superb. Glorious service and glorious assist. For anybody contemplating CallCentric, I would not be afraid to modify to them in a minute. The worth is nice and the service even higher. I would not let one individual’s downside with quantity porting cease you from utilizing this nice firm.

Re: Superior CallCentric! Porting numbers away from ANY provider may be problematic

I might say this. Most ports are very simple and require little effort and are subsequently free. In uncommon circumstances, some ports are a feminine canine. If a VOIP provider or service has to expend vital assets and cash to port a quantity, I do not assume it is too unreasonable to ask a buyer to pay a small compensation to assist cowl the price of attempting to get a ported quantity. CallCentric is a superb firm. Appears like their cheap enterprise practices aren’t for you. Simply go to a different service. Sounds such as you’d be happier with one other firm.

You were not charged for postage, you have been charged for activation of the quantity and maybe for the telephone service itself, and based on the examples I’ve listed, that is additionally finished by different corporations.

For instance, the revered firm “1-Voip” has free porting, however has a $14.95 quantity activation charge.
