Free local Calls when Overseas My husband and I can talk to each other when he is away without charge. A long distance call to S. Korea would normally cost an arm and a leg. The call quality is clear as long as he has a good WiFi signal which has not been a problem so far. Wr are so grateful he can use his cell phone with the Extensions App. And I get all our home phone calls when I am out and about, but running errands, shopping, etc. Just love it.
Good but could be better Interface with my phone gets hidden, then after a few seconds if screen was locked, it disappears but continues to ring and you can't answer. I can hear well but others have told me I'm breaking up.
Cannot place calls.. Ridiculously high data bandwidth. Poor design access to contacts / search I always get the message "cannot place call while another call in progress" what the hell?? Very slow to load up if at all (many times the app just "can't connect to the Vonage network") due to high bandwidth usage. Other calling apps don't use this much data. Crashes quite a bit on my ZTE / Samsung / LG phones
Save on cell phone bill I have been budgeting and only allotted myself 250 minutes a month on cell minutes. Through the app I can make calls and not use my cell minutes. When I'm on wifi it doesn't use my data also.
Works well accept... Love the app except there are no settings to turn off vibrate. I have all vibration turned off on my phone the Moto X 2nd gen and when I get a Vonage call the phone rings my default only sound and vibrates like crazy. The vibration is the most annoying and I tried telling Vonage this and they just don't listen. They should offer the ability to turn off vibration in the app. Update 6/2016:. Phone still vibrates with all vibration shut off on my phone. They are just don't know how to fix it! Pathetic!
Connections I love this app. I signed up with Vonage back in 2003 and love that I still have the same number 13 years and several moves later. I have recently moved out of the country and was very happy to find out I can use my mobile phone and still keep my home phone number. Switching numbers is always a pain and I love that I don't have to anymore. It also saves a ton of money for overseas calling.
