    Yep, they sure are!

    I am rather impressed with the voicemail on justdialvoip, it allows you
    to have something like this for your greeting:

    "Sorry, i cant take your call, you may leave a message or have your call
    transfered to my mobile, or office phone. Please press 1 to be
    transfered to my mobile, or 2 for my office, otherwise leave a message
    after the tone." Genious!

    I thought that you were the beta-testers?

    From their news section, "02/03":

    "Voicemail Live! 02/03
    Beta testing, not fully operational
    sipgate has activated the voicemail feature. The system works, but still
    has some work being done to it. Please don't flood the support mail with
    questions or complaints about voicemail as they will not be answered
    until the system is running well."

    Like you back vonage. I can not say which one is better, but if you
    think Vonage is better then fair enough, if Ivor thinks Sipgate is
    better then fair enough. there is not need to argue about it.

    I think BT is the biggest load of rubbish on this earth, but I do not
    argue about it.

    fair point AD c, although ivor rams it down everyones throat when i dare to
    praise vonage for being the best , which incidentally they are if you want
    flawless service that doesnt deop and fail continually like pissgate does.

    still most people will have anything for FREE like sipgate so you get what
    you pay for i suppose

    There is a difference between defending a company that provides good
    service and who's voicemail and other add on services work superbly
    and defending a company that makes no effort to correct its voicemail
    service that hasn't worked correctly from day one and allows its staff
    to clear of on a boozing weekend letting the ship steer itself on to
    the rocks and deny its customers service for two days .

    BT is the best land line provider in the UK there is no doubt about
    it.

    That still do not mean they are the best, I expect there ar other
    sevices out there which are just as good if not better.


    > flawless service that doesnt deop and fail continually like pissgate does.


    I have heard different, from what information I been looking at over the
    net, there is not diiference between any VOPIP service, they are all as
    bad or as good as each other.

    If you say so, I think Bt is the biggest waste of space of a company on
    this earth, and if I ever have to deal with them again, it will be too
    soon.

    At least they are offering CLID free of charge now, not before time. TW
    have just increased the cost from £1 to £1.50 per month for it.

    well ivor free is goos but only when it works, i would only evert consider a
    free service if it was as flawless as vonage, surely you can understand that
    becuase my vonage lines are flawless and have never had any issues with them
    thats why im reluctant to get one of these so called free voip providers, i
    have no problems paying for a reliable,top notch service ivor love.

    Only because they have to find someway to stop customers going
    elsewhere. even free ClId is not enough to get me back using them. My
    phone bills have never been lower, since I changed, it more than makes
    up the price I would have to pay for CLID, if I had it.

    How much do these geniuses charge you for transferring incoming calls
    to your mobile or office?

    No he can't and he is totally wrong Telewest closely followed by
    Sipgate are the two largest wasters of space with BT laying third
    on the other hand BT are about the best of a very bad bunch .
    It is just a pity that Internet via satellite is so expensive or I
    would throw BT out .
    Incidentally where is Mr Jones not seen him here for a couple of days
    or so now I do know he has been chatting with his friends in Germany
    though .
    This guy is the only customer ( but is he just a customer ) of Sipgate
    in the UK that has a hot line to head off in Germany .

    I know so many people who have been mucked around by BT, myself
    included.
    A mate of mine only last week, asked BT to take his Home highway off,
    but leabve him a line. But they could not do that properly, he was
    without a telephone for over 48 hours, not good, since his business
    relies on the phone.
    They decided that I needed a new cable 4 years ago, they put one up 3
    years later and I was left without the phone for 3 days, the strange
    things was, ADSL still worked.

    They disconected my parents, for no reason, it took them a day to
    reconnect.

    Someone at work, have just moved and was told the phone would be
    connected before they moved, they are still waiting, a week later.

    A mate of mine had a bill from BT for £700, it was his address on the
    bill, but not his Telephone number.

    Do I need to go on? Almost everything BT do, the muck up

    I can certainly prove I do not want to deal with the no good for nothing
    company again.
