Anyone Using A Virtual Phone Service/call Menu


Looking for a phone service with basic call menu. Has anyone use MightyCall or Grasshopper, or similar service?

I use Vonage and I know there are differences. Here is something that I saw that may be helpful in comparing

I didn't need any bells and whistles other than mobility, and it has worked fine for me for years.

RingCentral is my best recommendation (though I'm not familiar with all of the options). I do know that, for a couple bucks per month, they give me a virtual phone system that does more than the one I paid $24,000 for 10 years ago. FML

Ring central is over priced for what you get , for a couple bucks a month you could host your own cloud based freepbx instance and use a sip trunk.

We've recently started with OneBox. It boasts a ton of features but can keep things relatively simple if that's what you're looking for as well. It does offer the basic phone-tree messaging service, as well as routing calls on to the next available team member if the first person can't pick up. Reasonably priced too if you're not looking for the whole enchilada.

Im using ring central. Have dozens of numbers and extensions, phone tree. Total bill is like $300/month. There might be a cheaper alternative but for saving $100/m its not worth the switching costs.

I have a client who has 2 locations with almost 35 extensions they pay a little over $100 a month the switch paid for itself in about 4 months.

Paying for every extension gets to be costly when your extension count climbs. Every time you want to add someone increase your monthly cost.

Re: Anyone Using A Virtual Phone Service/call Menu


I have a basic account with grasshopper, costs me 17-18 dollars a month.

I haven't ever spent the time to get it set up the way I would really like - though I need to do that!

Right now it basically is just set up to forward my toll free number to my cell phone. (855) 5 FIXXED

It does have a numerical menu, and you can set it to your preference.

I always hate when people setup an IVR (interactive voice recording) and you can press any number and it all goes to the same damn person
