    Whenever I see the word VONAGE, my blood pressure goes up. THE worst company/product experience of my life, and that’s saying a LOT.

    Word to the wise: avoid ANYTHING this company does. Their customer support is based on trickery and hidden charges. Took me a YEAR to get out of their service, and I finally paid $39 for the privilege of leaving them! Well worth it. AVOID just my opinion, I may be wrong.
